Let’s get back on the project of trying as many bak kut teh as possible in the birth land of this amazing dish – Klang. Today we take a look at one of the small guys – an unassuming small corner restaurant near Klang Parade by the name of Restoran Xin Lai Hing.

We chanced upon this relative newcomer to the bkt scene in Klang while visiting one of our regular Vietnamese kopitiam at the area and thought to give it a try. Interestingly, in addition to bak kut teh, they actually also serve a small selection of Vietnamese dishes here, though we did not have an opportunity to sample those.

For the two of us, we ordered a 1.5 portion of clay pot bak kut teh with a mixture of kahwan (around the ankle) and intestine. The dish comes with piping hot soup that is pretty strong in herbal aroma with a slight bitter note which I find quite pleasing. There isn’t much peppery note which may or may not suit individual taste but I do find it pretty good.

The meat is probably softer and more tender than most I had, and you can definitely cut it with a spoon, quite delightful as the fatty bit melts in your mouth. I also like the fact that the small intestine is stuffed with even more intestine, perfect for offal lovers.

There’s some tofu skin and a bit of tofu pok as well as few leaves of fresh vege in the soup, enough to give it a false sense of balanced meal, who cares?

If you’re up to some really soft and tender pork, this is one that won’t disappoint.

Discuss : KY eats – Xin Lai Hing Bak Kut Teh, Near Klang Parade

  1. Actually having BKT and Vietnamese pho in the same meal would be quite a nice pairing rite ;)))

  2. I’d like to follow you one day on a bak kut teh exhibition – learn from the expert. 🙂

  3. KY, planing to try this Malaysian restaurant in Chinatown San Francisco for Yelp has good rating. Not sure if it have youtous

  4. Is it a norm for most BKT in Klang to have a very strong herbal taste in their soup? If so, then I probably won’t like them as much (I’ve only had BKT in Klang like 2 or 3 times in the past and they were so long ago I can’t remember the taste…haha!). I had one recently (that just opened in my neighbourhood) and the herbal taste was so strong….the shop advertised it as Klang BKT! >_<

    • eatwhateatwhere: yes, usually they’re strong but the note maybe different, some are slightly more bitter while others are more peppery. Pick your poison 😀

    Hi, I am a staff of University of Nigeria and I think this is a good place to collaborate with. You can visit the University’s Home science, Nutrition and Dietetics department here to view what the department has in store and for inquiries on how to go about the collaboration and other academic services.
