Since I am somewhat known for being a bak kut teh lover (which I am), I suppose it is appropriate to not go too long between bak kut teh posts, so today I present you – Siong Huat Bak Kut Teh, at Port Klang.

As mentioned, this particular bak kut teh place is located near port Klang, so for those who travels from other parts of Klang Valley, it is indeed quite a distance. However, since the Federal Highway toll is dismantled, the journey cost RM 4.20 less, and so there’s no excuse to not do this.

Furthermore, Siong Huat also has a dedicated parking lot for dine in customers, which makes it that much more convenient.

Siong Huat bak kut teh for lunch today. We had bak kut teh original style, with lala, and dry style. Also ordered vege, their famous steamed garupa fish, and durian cendol. I think I had enough food for the day 😋 #kyeats #lunch #breakfast #bakkutteh #cendol #seafoodbkt #klang #portklang

Unlike many bak kut teh places in Klang that concentrate on either bowl type bkt (one where you specify just 1 particular cut of meat, served in bowl), Siong Huat offers claypot style bak kut teh in soup & dry versions, and also with options for seafood. On top of that, they also offer a variety of “tai chao” dishes.

For the 8 of us, we ordered a big portion of bak kut teh with lala (spicy version), a regular clay pot bak kut teh, a dry version, a plate of vegetable, and steamed garupa fillet with ginger. All of these to go with steamed rice, like god intended.

The seafood bak kut teh was served with a pretty generous amount of lala and chili padi. The cili padi is necessary in any seafood bak kut teh soup base to balance the seafood taste with herbal aroma. The version here is as good as others I’ve tried in Klang, such as Yun Heng’s lala bkt, or Klang Coast at Bukit Tinggi, but perhaps a notch below Ah Tao’s version (sadly he passed away). Definitely satisfying.

The regular soup based as well as the dry bak kut teh were competent in their own right, with the soup version accompanied by pretty good tofu skin as well.

Additionally, their steamed garupa fish is a must order for those who love fish. The ginger was spicy, and fish tasted superbly fresh and done just right,  goes well with steamed rice.

For those with some sense of adventure, Siong Huat also serves cendol with actual durian (RM 16 per bowl), a dessert fit as a meal on its own, and priced accordingly.

As for our over ordered meal, it came to around RM 40 per pax, including the pricey dessert. Worth it.

I’m always on the lookout for new bak kut teh places, and since we now stay a stone’s throw away from Klang, this isn’t an issue at all when there are some 400-500 BKT stalls/restaurants in the area.

My latest exploit was this old bak kut teh restaurant by the name of Teong Bak Kut Teh situated at Jalan Miri right across the more popular Nan Feng bkt restaurant, which is also one of our regular go-tos.

Trying this old school bak kut teh at Jalan Miri, the small road opposite Nan Feng bkt. Really soft meat with melt in your mouth fatty part. One of those old neighborhood favorites that’s not found on insta map. The road is short tho you can’t miss it. Came here since I recalled @z35s saying good things about it. #kyeats #breakfast #bakkutteh #klang #pork #nonhalal

Teong is one of those restaurants that is so old when the sign board is first hung on top of the shop, internet didn’t exist, and you still have to physically dial the phone instead of  pressing buttons. If a shop is this old, chances are there’re good reasons they’re still around.

After hearing a friend mentioned about his friend who may have said some good things about Teong BKT, I decided to pay a visit. The restaurant is set up like most other BKT places, with plastic chairs & tables, a “kitchen” by the front, and kettles with boiling water for your tea making convenience.

I ordered a portion of pua pui chiak (half fat half lean) for brunch. The bak kut teh came in a small china bowl with the meat almost as tender as the version at Teck Seong, and a soup base that’s not overly thick but still carries a good herbal note, with a hint of sweetness in a good way. As for condiments, you have fried shallots, chili padi, and soya sauce – plenty good enough in my book.

Teong BKT is now in my “will return for more” list of BKT places in Klang.

Looking to expand my bak kut teh experience just a bit more, I took little Chaly on a bit of an excursion and came upon this familiar little corner extension by the name of Ah Soh Bak Kut Teh by Jalan Batu Tiga Lama the other day.

Then it dawned on me that this was actually one of the first bak kut teh places I had over a decade ago, on one of the last trips my late dad made to Klang Valley. We were wondering around Klang looking for this famed dish during the CNY holiday season and this happened to be one that was in operation. Brought back the memories, sadly there’s no pictures taken that day.

Ah Soh bak kut teh is operated by none other than Ah Soh herself (I assumed), offering clay pot style of this classic dish with a unique offering that’s not common in Klang – yam rice is on the menu if it suits your fancy.

The bak kut teh itself is right about middle of the pack, the meat and fat bits could be a little more tender, soup has a strong herbal note, with their intestine done really well. Additionally, the yau char kuih is one of the better ones around as well.

unfortunately they ran out of yam rice that day
you can have it with white rice too if yam rice isn’t your thing

If you are one of those who loves more soup, Ah Soh is more than happy to comply to those request as well. If you love yam rice, this is one of the few BKT places to visit, even though this option is quite common in Penang if I remember correctly.

A couple weeks ago one of my friends, Michael, a true born & bred Klang guy sent me a picture of a bowl of old school bak kut teh via WhatsApp and claimed that this place is so good they usually sell out by 8:30 in the morning. The name oft the shop – Teck Seong bak kut teh.

Coincidentally, this restaurant also happen to be located just minutes away from where I stay, makes visiting for weekday before-work-breakfast perfect. So I did just that the very next morning.

Teck Seong bkt, fast becoming one of my favorites for morning old school style breakfast. Their strong point here is the flavourful meat and melt in your mouth fat layer. #kyeats #breakfast #bakkutteh #klang #pork #nonhalal

It is true that bak kut teh is mostly a breakfast dish in Klang, and some of the best outlets only operates in the morning. Like many of these places, Teck Seong starts early in the morning, at 6 am.

The offering here is of the most old school style – one bowl of pork of your choice per person to go with steamed rice. You do get chili padi and soya sauce as condiments.

I’ve tried “pua pui chiak” (半肥瘦) and “tua kut” (big bone) at Teck Seong and the experience has been great. The soup, while a bit more subtle than the likes of Mo Sang Kor, it still holds a strong herbal note. The flavor of meat though, is among the best I’ve had, then there’s the fat, they just melt in you mouth. Excellent.

A single portion with rice is RM 11, so prices are more than reasonable, if not slightly cheaper compared to some at the area. If you’re a fan of old school style BKT, this is surely one to check out.

A couple weekends ago while trying to play catch up in tasting as many different bak kut teh restaurants in Klang as humanely responsible, I took up the offer from Zess, our resident Klang bkt expert, and met up for a sumptuous brunch at Ah Chee clay pot bak kut teh.

Ah Chee is of course, another one of Zess’ friends (this guy knows a lot of BKT operators). The restaurant is located at an end lot at the rather busy commercial area at Bayu Tinggi, Klang.

If you’re not familiar with Bayu Tinggi, well, it is basically located in between Bukit Tinggi and Port Klang, a place that’s frequent mostly only by Klang residents.

Ah Chee bak kut teh, as recommended by our Klang “local snake” @z35s. We asked for the softest cut today 😚👌 #kyeats #breakfast #bakkutteh #klang #pork

For the 5 of us on a Sunday morning, we kept it simple and just asked for the softest meat with their signature intestines plus fuchuk (tofu skin).

Like every place that Zess brought us thus far, this one again checked all the boxes. The soup is more than decent, thick, flavorful, and on par with most other Klang BKT I’ve tried.

The meat though (at least the version we had), was really tender with melt in your mouth fats. I really enjoyed that, but that was not the best part.

The star of the meal was their intestine. The stuffed intestine is probably up to 7-8 layers and thus had this really great texture to it. If you consume offal, this is a must-eat.

The meal came up to under RM 20 per person, right about average in terms what you expect to pay for good BKT meal. Will be glad to revisit.
