The restaurant business is sometimes like real estate, the whole “location, location, location” mantra can be as important as food and services itself.

This couldn’t be more evident when it comes to Xhin Fhong bak kut teh at Sungei Way. Though located just a stone’s throw away from Ah Sang bak kut teh, this home converted BKT restaurant is little known. I didn’t know of its existence till I read it on Sue Lynn’s blog.

Xhin Fhong Bak Kut Teh, Sungei Way

The restaurant consists of some 10 tables arranged at the drive way of an old house, with the “kitchen” neatly tucked at a corner. While they serve all the typical bak kut teh ingredients, unlike a typical kopitiam, you can’t really expect a full fledge drinks menu.

One thing that I really like about Xhin Fhong is their service. The aunty is ever so friendly, additional soup is served without even asking. Same can’t be said about most other bkt places.

Yao Char Kuai, Enoki mushroom, clay pot Bak Kut Teh

We ordered a clay pot bak kut teh with everything in it, a bowl of yau char kuai, and a serving of enoki mushroom as side dish to go with oil rice (white rice available too)

The soup was fragrant and rather “kao”, and the meat and innards cooked to perfection. Our bowl of goodness includes ribs, pork belly, meat, pork tripes, intestine, tofu pok, vegetable, and a little bit of mushroom.

The yao char kuai was crispy and makes a good appetizer while waiting for BKT to be served. Enoki mushroom, well, tasted like enoki mushroom, but the serving size here was really impressive.

We definitely had a good brunch, and the total bill came to around RM 10 per person, which was pretty reasonable considering we also ordered canned drinks (BKT best goes with tea, I know, I know, but the weather was way too hot)

To get to Xhin Fhong, I recommend parking near the Indian Temple, walk up the inner road to the right side and take the first left turn, you should then be able to see Xhin Fhong just a few houses down from the intersection.

Give this place a try especially if you’ve been to Ah Sang, Xhin Fhong is definitely worth a visit.

    my fav part if the generous serving of enoki mushroom, other bkt places are so stingy with theirs.

  2. kimberlycun,
    yeaa, the enoki mushroom filled the bowl to the brim!

  25. Caroline,
    hehehe fyl. 😛 I haven’t tried the Tesco Cheras one but will do eventually 😀

  26. Try this Xhin Foong Bah Kut Teh today….felt too expensive!
    The Bah Kut Teh at Kajang Bukit Mewah (opposite MOBIL and DUNLOP) is cheaper and nicer 🙂

    • Comer: err.. Kajang definitely have cheaper food than PJ, taste wise I’ll have to try to know. 🙂

  27. […] usually liked my BKT place to be one of old school settings, like Xhin Fhong of Sungei Way, or Weng Heong at Klang,  but I reserved my judgement till after food […]
