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.

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.

As we’ve now officially moved to Shah Alam but yet to manage to subscribe to fiber internet line, updates will be still a bit on the slow side, but fear not, here’s another Klang bak kut teh place for you to contemplate – the 155 Bak Kut Teh restaurant at Pandamaran.

Some of you may have come across the 158 Hong Ba post on this site a few months ago, and yes, this house-turned-restaurant bak kut teh place resides along the same road just a stone’s throw away, apparently owned by owners with similar creativity level when it comes to naming their business.

155 Bak Kut Teh actually serves more than just bak kut teh. In addition to the usual soupy version of my favorite pork dish of all time, there’s also the dry version, pork trotter vinegar, and “oily” vegetable. The bak kut teh comes in either clay pot or the traditional China bowl.

Since there was just two of us, we opted for a claypot BKT with soup, and a portion of pork trotter vinegar (RM 11 each). We also tried their yau char kuai as starter.

We chose “kah wan” (fatty meat near pork legs) and was more than satisfied with the quality of the BKT soup with is quite plentiful and still rather flavorful. The meat is tender as any, and for those who favor balanced diet, there’s a few pieces of greens in it.

The pork trotter vinegar though, was superb. It was soft, tender, and absolutely “kao”. The viscosity of the vinegar is quite high with the aroma that’s equally as imposing. I love it.

If you want some balanced BKT with some good pork trotter vinegar, this is a place to check out. Spare the yau char kuai though.
