Let’s continue with our Klang bak kut teh related reviews, shall we? Today’s we’re looking at something just a tiny bit different from the usual bowl or clay pot type bak kut teh, we’re talking about – Hong Ba (封肉).

I first read about 158 Hong Ba on Jodie’s blog, and since it looked absolutely stunning, we went ahead and gave it a try.

158 Hong Ba is located at Pandamaran’s Jalan Chan Ah Choo, a street that has quite a few restaurants, at least half of which serves bak kut teh. Yes, Klang people absolutely love their pork.

The restaurant is set up just like a bak kut teh place, with kettle on gas stove for tea making purposes, and semi-alfresco dining area. They serve breakfast/brunch as well as dinner, and purportedly operated by different siblings on those service windows.

Unlike normal bak kut teh, hong ba is more like braised pork with thick herbal gravy. The pork is absolutely tender and super savory, braised eggs and tofu is served together with the fatty pork that melts in your mouth. While they give you quite a generous portion of gravy, it is not “soup” sort of portion, and not meant to be.

It turned out to be pretty awesome, but standard portion for two is actually a bit smallish. Next time I’ll need to order their innards and pork tendons, they looked absolutely stunning!

So if you’re a fan of melt in your mouth porky goodness, this is one of the places you should check out.

      Vickie: I think slow braise would probably work, with an assortment of herbs & some soya sauce.

    Frankly, I prefer “phak lor bak” to bak kut teh – braised/stewed pork with five spice powder & dark soy sauce…and I cannot resist those stewed eggs. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
