Gong Xi Fa Cai and wish you have a happy and prosperous Rabbit year!

It’s been a tradition of sort for my family to come over to KL from Penang every year over CNY since 6-7 years ago. This is partly to avoid the crazy traffic in Penang (and the commute), plus I suspect, maybe giving mom a chance in having real Klang Bak Kut Teh at least once a year. 😀

So on the third day of Chinese New Year we drove all the way to Klang in search for any bak kut teh restaurant that’s open for business.

After the Klang toll and turning back into Jalan Batu Tiga Lama, there was Kedai Makanan Nan Sian. Incidentally, we also came here some 6-7 years ago at about the same time for BKT, with my late dad then, as my mom recalled. It has been that long.

While we only had the soup BKT on the first visit, there’s dry bak kut teh to go along with the more traditional soup version this time around. For those who have been sleeping over the last 5 years or so, dry bak kut teh has since taken on major stride and available at many major BKT outlets these days.

The dry version is rumored to have made popular by Lai Choon Klang BKT, not far from Nan Sian.

The dry version over here is as good as any, with plenty of sliced okra, dried chili, and I suspect, a little bit of dried cuttle fish to add to the taste. It was flavorful and intense.

The soup version is proto typical Klang style, very herbal, thick, sticky, and with a big pork bone in the middle of the clay pot too. We had it with pork knuckle, 3-layer meat, pork tripe, intestine, a bit of mushroom, tofu, fu chok, and that slice of lettuce (mostly for decoration). If you like them old school Klang BKT, you can’t go wrong with this one.

The satisfying lunch came to about RM 11 or so per person, and we left happy with full stomach. I should go to more Klang BKT places

    I saw the sight of claypot and I’m sold! Some BKT shops in Klang serve BKT in those small bowls, which they claim are the original Klang BKT. But I refuse to like them! Always love the bigger claypot, piping hot soup and refillable! Yum!!

      If you eat in small bowl you get more intense meat flavor without all the vege and mushroom smell.
      I like to order small bowl for meat and claypot with very and mushroom.

    KY go try this restaurant in Klang when u get the chance….or if u can find the way! U know how messy the roads in Klang can be. Its called Kee Heong. Lightly herby but tell them dont put mushrooms and veges and other stuffs that u dont want. U can order by bowl or claypot. Its the thick and sticky lip-smacking type! 3 plates of rice justifies the awesomeness of it!!! Give it a go. No regrets!
