It’s no secret that I am a fan of Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶), in fact, I have devoted a whole subcategory for this uniquely Malaysian dish. In recent years, some of the more imaginative bak kut teh restaurant owners have come up with the concept of dry bak kut teh, in addition to the traditional soup type. So far though, I have only tried one at Lai Choon, Klang. Until last weekend, when we spotted the Restaurant Bak Kut Teh Shun Heng 吧生顺兴（干）肉骨茶 at Aman Suria.
nice and clean environment
For two person, we ordered one portion of dry bak kut teh, and another clay pot the normal variety. It was late afternoon and we didn’t have to wait very long for the food to be served.
The two clay pots came steaming with irressistable aroma, with a couple plates of oil rice and some yau char kuai (Chinese Crullers – 油炸鬼). While the normal version of Bak Kut Teh served were pretty good but not overly impressive with its soup (slightly lacking compared to some of the Klang stalls), the dry version was absolutely superb.
Other than dried red chilli and the thick sauce, there were also chunks of okra and some dried cuttle fish in the mix, with different cuts of meat and pork intestine as the main ingredients. The combination may sound odd to you, but you simply have to give this a try. It was great.
absolutely delicious bak kut teh… *slurps*
There are quite a number of Bak Kut Teh restaurants in this area, including Wong Siong Wong. However, to my knowledge, only Shun Heng serves the dry Bak Kut Teh. The restaurant is one that is nearest to the big aquarium shop.

When I accidentally discovered the Sunway Mas Commercial Centre a couple years back, I had wondered why anyone would build all these shop lots right in the middle of nowhere, hidden behind Kampung Chempaka, and quite a distance from Bandar Utama too. It remained relatively unoccupied for a while, until the Aman Suria residential area came up, and now it is one of the newest places for food hunters around PJ area.
We wondered at the area in search of a fresh dinner place and ended up at the Wong Siong Wong restaurant, cos one shall never get tired of the greatest Chinese food invented in Klang Valley, the Bak Kut Teh.
look at em bak kut teh and lamb stew
The major difference in this place over most other bak kut teh restaurants is its offering of several other dishes, one of which is the Hainanese stewed lamb ribs. We ordered the recommended lamb stew, a claypot of bak kut teh, and some vege to go with white rice for the four of us.
can you say.. *slurps*?
The bak kut teh, though not the best I’ve had, was pretty good. The soup has a nice herbal taste to it. Ingredients to the bak kut teh is pretty much what you would expect, meat, innards, “taupork”, mushroom, and some cabbage.
The lamb stew was quite a pleasant surprise, the ribs nicely done to a soft and tender texture. The thick gravey has a pretty strong pepper taste and mixes well with white rice. Black fungus, carrot, and spring onion served as garnish.
A little nice touch to the restaurant is that they serve yau ja gwai with a couple bowl of bak kut teh soup while you wait for the main dishes to be prepared. So if you are really hungry, there’s something to start off with. It is the proper way to start a bak kut teh meal.
map to Aman Suria
If my memory serves me correct, it was something to the tune of RM 15 for each person. With bak kut teh and lamb stew, a pretty reasonable price.
