I was first introduced to this latest “invention” of traditional Chinese sinful treat that is the bak kua (肉干), or dried meat in Hokkien, by Kelvin. He handed me some bacon bak kua (钟无艳肉干)from Kiew Brothers to save his own arteries from clogging up, and it was so good that I finished it within a few minutes. Naturally I had to buy some for myself so that I could snap some pictures to share with you (not that I mind eating more anyway).

Bacon Bak Kua from Kiew Brothers
best of both worlds, bacon bak kua!

I don’t think there is a lot to describe about this. You know bacon is good, and you know that bak kua is great. What happen with you combine the two? A snack that doesn’t need any preparation, melts in your mouth, and tasted just super awesome! Beats any other type of bak kua I’ve ever had.

However, this thing doesn’t feel very healthy if consumed too much. I have been trying to pace myself to not have too many pieces at one go.

Bacon Bak Kua from Kiew Brothers
I love this stuff

As far as I know, this version of bak kua is only available from Kiew Brothers at the moment (update: bee cheng hiang has it too). I got mine from Pavilion, but they are not available on every location due to lower demand and shorter shelf life of this new product. The bacon bak kua is slightly more expensive than the other variety at around RM 70+ per KG.

    Wahaha,my favourite….yummy.Actually you should try Bee Cheng Hiang’s bacon bak kua.Normally need to advance booking and also need to eat within 2 hours,then you feel the taste of the bacon bak kua and also the tenderness.Cold eating is ok but not as good as hot.Somemore cold bacon bak kua you will feel more geli bec the fats and oil will freeze at the meat and your feeling like eating slipery bacon cover with OIL,geli lar….

  25. kl_fatguy,
    Geli? what is geli? hahaha, you have to embrace it cold or warm! 😛

    I wonder if heating it in microwave would be ok for bacon as it might splatter everywhere.

  26. Hi there every1, I was lucky enuf to be able to sample this Bak Kua when i visited your lovely country.
    Is there anywhere in London that i could get some of it… is heavenily

    我来也is always my beloved New Year gift from friend.
    Oops!!! It is now facing the “off the shelf” problem. As a QMS person, to be in their shoes, the actions required: 1) Immediate action: a) To retrieve all back from the market b) To make a public apology – These are their current actions. 2) Correction: a) To check whether all batches are affected. To segregate bad and good. To dispose off the bad. 3) Causes: To investigate and analyse the process on the cause and weaknesses. (causese may be due to: man, method, material, process, environment & etc. But look at the present one, the possible cause may be from man, material, method and process control, inefficient procedure) Then to have an improved actions taken to eliminate the causes. Apply improvement tools and error proof method. Use PDCA 4) Preventive actions: To audit the improved version process. Recommend to employ a third party auditor (this will regain the public confidence soon). And to act on any deviation immediate as to prevent it from deterioration. Tighten the audit frequency at start. 5) Follow up: The management will follow up on the audit result.
    I hope all these will eliminate the problem very soon. Looking forward for it to come back to the market. This yummy branded product should be back to the market soon.

    • Cynthia: sure hope so!
