The birth place of bak kut teh, Klang, has perhaps one of the most competitive bak kut teh scene in the country, with population of some 750,000 (according to wikipedia) and a claimed of some 3-500 bak kut teh restaurants, it also has the highest BKT restaurant per capita.

From these mostly mom & pop restaurants rose a few familiar names of BKT sellers any connoisseurs of this dish would recognize- with one of them of the Ah Her & Samy family.

Well, they now have a new outlet at Taman Intan out to tackle the night market by the name of Samy & Tien Bak Kut Teh, challenging Weng Heong just a few shops down the street in luring those who look for a good BKT dinner.

Much like it’s sister branches of Ah Her at Pandamaran (night), or Samy & Ah Her at Berkeley (morning/lunch), Samy and Tien offers BKT in single serving bowls with a choice of your favorite parts – such as paikut (ribs), tua kut (big bone), seh kut (small bone), nui kut (soft bone), pua pui chiak (3 layer pork), and so forth.

As for taste, it is almost exactly alike their sister branches. Thick herbal soup with a strong peppery note, and with the meat coming in soft, tender, and flavorful.

Also similar with their sister branches, it is not meant for those who seek lots of soup to go with their BKT. This is not due to them being stingy, but there’s only so much broth you can make to achieve these sort of thick consistency.

So if you’re looking for one of the better bowl type BKT in Klang for dinner, now it’s just some 10 mins drive from Subang, with no more toll to pay as well!

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.

Sometimes last year, I wrote an entry about curry chicken pao in USJ 4’s New Apollos kopitiam. Well, today we talk about the supplier of those pao – Restoran Klang Food Centre at Klang.

The restaurant is located at Taman Intan, the first commercial center just after the Klang toll (Sungai Rasau) and NKVE intersection on federal highway. The area also houses some popular bak kut teh places such as Teluk Pulai BKT and Weng Heong BKT.

There’s over a dozen different pao available here, ranging from the usual chicken, kaya, big pao, char siew, red bean, lin yong, and so forth, they also have yam and pork, curry chicken pao, and my personal favorite – mui choi pao.

The pao here are all hand-made on location, so you’re getting pretty much the freshest pao you can get. They also sell these dumplings in frozen form should you want to bring them home and steam them up for breakfast at your leisure.

Other than pao, Restoran Klang Food Centre also serves bak chang, lo mai kai, yam puff, sesame balls, and yam cakes as well. The bak chang tastes pretty good, but I thought the yam cake was actually sub-par.

If you’re up for some traditional eat-from-your-hand fresh paos, check this place out.
