Since we just gotten keys to our new place in Shah Alam, we’ve been making numerous trips to sort out the usual stuff associated with purchasing a new home. Not coincidentally, the place we bought is also just a stone’s throw away from Klang, which is quite convenient for a bak kut teh fan like me.

So we drove to Pandamaran, which is located closer to Port Klang and parked the car near Ah Her bak kut teh, a place we’ve been a few times prior. But instead of going to Ah Her again, we decided to check out one of the few other BKT stalls located along the hawker strip at the area.

This particular place is only known by the stall number – “Gerai 78”

Gerai 78 offers both wet and dry versions of bak kut teh, so for the two of us, we ordered a single portion of each, and both laden with “non lean meat”. We had initially asked for innards, but those good stuff already ran out even though it wasn’t even 7:30 pm yet.

The bkt comes in a clay pot with plenty of fuchok, a healthy dosage of well cooked pork, some vegetable, and mushroom. The soup is thick though not as “herbal” as I prefer. It’ll be top notch in PJ and KL but I guess rather average as far as Klang goes.

The dry version is pretty basic and unpretentious, there’s no okra nor any part of the pork charred. I thought overall it was more than decent but perhaps not one of my favorite interpretation of dried bak kut teh.

If I want more soup, I may still come here, otherwise I’m hoping over to Ah Her. But either way, you can’t go wrong.

It’s Klang yo!

Discuss : KY eats – Gerai 78 Bak Kut Teh at Pandamaran, Klang

  1. KY, Wow if I eaten those dishes in morning before heading to working no need to do lunch. Spend more time with the cats and dogs.

  2. CL (RealGunners)

    Seems like everyone is moving to Shah Alam, last year alone I visited 10 new homes in Shah Alam!

    I’d love a decent pot of bak kut teh anytime! I hardly have them nowadays, don’t really like Penang’s version, I think the soup here has a very mild taste compared to what we get in KL and better, Klang.

    • CL: haha I guess Shah Alam offers a decent price point for properties vs location in Klang Valley.

  3. my sense of geography is so bad, i didn’t realise shah alam borders klang … checked it out on google maps, and of course, you’re right, haha 😀

  4. KY, where did you move to? If you can do a write up of your new place it will be great. Thanks!

      got write up already, in that post i ask uncle not to buy display home wan, because the toilet used by thousands of people already, lol. Also i remember i took a berak in the master ensuite some time ago….. Shiok… So remember ah chai, display home got Big discount for a reason wan…. lol

    • reader: I’ll be moving to Shah Alam in a few months time. 🙂

  5. I am also interested to know how do you ‘cope’ with moving from PJ (where everywhere is relatively near) to Shah Alam where it will require some driving to most places…
    But I do agree that the new houses in SA are value for money given that the prices in Klang Valley are really expensive these days.

    • reader: well, there’s Klang with plenty of Chinese food just a few minutes drive away.

  6. I don’t like lean much either. But hey! You’re all skin and bone, not like me…so nice and cuddly! Hehehehehe!!!!
