It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that I am a huge Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶) fan. It all started when I was a young boy when our family used to have bak kut teh almost every Sunday. The pork, the soup, the “yau char gwai”, it is simply the best Chinese food invented from this land. The last post on this category appeared some 3 months ago, so the time is right to have another one!

Update: Unfortunately Ming Tien food court is now closed permanently

my personal pot of bak kut teh

Most of the bak kut teh at food courts and kopitiams that I have tried over the years have not been particularly rewarding, but that has never stop me from trying new stalls once in a while. My luck came when I found myself at Ming Tien some months ago without knowing what to order, so I fall back to my default feel-good food, the Bak Kut Teh.

ahh, the strong herbal taste of the soup

When the steamy pot of goodness arrived, I was utterly surprised by the aroma and flavor of the soup. Strong with herbal taste, the soup is pretty sweet and not over powering. On top of that, they serve old school oily rice that goes very well with the meat. No wonder there are comments on my ming tien dumpling post recommending me to this stall.

For a single portion, the price is in line with other bak kut teh places at around RM 8 or so. Try it out if especially if you frequent this food court. I reckon this stall sells the best bak kut teh in any food court that I’ve tried so far.

  3. KennyStyle

    Hmm.. normaly those food in court not tat good as other restaurant or hawker do.

  4. thanks for blogging about this place. it’s one of my fav BKT stall. and near my house somemore! lol.

  5. Dangerous Variable

    Seriously this BKT is not that great! It has loads of MSG laced in it and it really sucks!

  6. Dangerous Variable,
    I guess you might have some super sensitive tongue to MSG, so far I’ve had no such problem with that stall. 🙂

  7. yummy!!!

  8. Just ask for the pork stomach soup BKT only. It does taste good but pricey. For the original one, try BKT Ban Lee at Jln Ipoh (next to Dynasty Hotel). That one is really good.

    Do checkout my flog ( Link me too!

  9. i had this once, then it made me wanted to shoot to klang directly for the bak kut teh. ahh goodness

  20. Kepong guy

    After read your blog,I go to Ming Tien and try what you so call the best BKT you ever had.Dissapointing ler…before I start to put into my mouth,I feel strange smell.You know pork have strong smell if you don’t really wash and cook well.I smell “Chu Yuk So” ler…,firstly I thought only me sensitive but my gf also smell it,YUCKS….

    I don’t know,maybe this Ming Tien is the worse BKT I ever had.The soup consider so so only,taste abit like Klang style but still not that good as others.

    Luckly they put some “kei chi” to cover the smell but still consider so so for me.

    Hope you don’t mind,ok…

  21. Kepong guy,
    Ah, sorry to hear about your misfortune. I do think that it is one of the best BKT in food court, but certainly still a long way from many of the dedicated BKT shops. Maybe you went on one of their off days. 🙂

  22. kepong guy…

    i have try that bkt is ok wo…

    maybe every bak kut teh stall or shop also got some problem with their pork supplier de la..

  23. kl fat guy = kepong guy

    Ahahah,maybe lor but one time sure enough for me lor.Still prefer try others BKT,maybe you are right,still the best in food stalls but not for me.So,guys have you try Kim Teck which I reconmend in Kepong??

  24. kl fat guy,
    Haven’t had the chance yet, too many places, too little time, too small a stomach. Aihh.. dilemma. 😀

  25. kl fat guy,

  29. gasoline,
    oOoo, i see. I went there the other day and burnt my tongue. :/

  30. You have to try Heng Kee Bak Kut Teh at PJ Old Town. It’s absolutely the best!

  31. Sharon,
    Yah I’ve been there as well! 😀

  32. Jia Nian

    Well, best Bah Kut Teh is sure in Klang! Haha…Maybe you can try out the Yeoh’s Bak Kut Teh behind Klang Hokkien Association. U can see many Japanese and Taiwanese bringing their whole family or friends for a taste of Bah Kut Teh. This is their website:

    They have a franchise in Hong Kong Sheung Wan too…

  33. Jia Nian,
    oOOo, interesting! Ya I’ve been to that one a long time ago too. 🙂

  34. I have tasted its Bak Kut Teh before and yah, they taste good. But their Trotter soup is even better! It’s just too bad that they’ve skimped on the meat and trotter recently.

  35. tt,
    Ooo interesting!

    Thanks for the tips! 🙂

  36. […] last time I wrote an entry about Ming Tien was over a year ago on the Bak Kut Teh and Dumpling. To be frank, I am not a very big fan of this big hawker center despite the fact that […]
