I’ve read somewhere that there are over 400 bak kut teh restaurants just in Klang alone, so looks like there’re more work to be done in sampling as many of these comfort pork dishes as I can, while I can!

Just a week ago, we went over to Jalan Teluk Pulai and ended up at the original Restoran Telok Pulai Bak Kut Teh for a pretty satisfying brunch.

For the uninitiated, Teluk Pulai BKT shop at Taman Intanย (blog post from 10 years ago), the commercial area right after Federal Highway Sungai Rasau toll with theย big Maybank building, is perhaps one of the most famous bak kut teh restaurants in Klang.

For many who aren’t from Klang, my younger self included, the first taste of proper “Klang BKT” often equate to this particular brand, so I thought the original shop is worth a visit.

Teluk Pulai BKT is located at the middle of the row of shop lots that’s flanked by two other BKT shops at each end. Seating is a combination of indoor & semi-outdoor arrangement, and like most BKT establishments in Klang, there’s plenty of kettles with hot boiling water for tea making purposes stationed within.

For the two of us, we ordered a 1.5 portion (yes you don’t have to go full 2 portion) of clay pot BKT with kahwan (near leg joints), small intestine, and pork stomach. There’s also dry version if you’re into that.

To be honest, it tastes pretty much exactly like the branch at Taman Intan, the soup base has a pretty decent herbal tone and well balanced, with the meat soft and the fat very tender. I thought the small intestine was very well done as well, stuffed within itself multiple folds. There’s also tofu pok, button mushroom, and a bit of green presence in the clay pot, that’s the beauty of Klang BKT isn’t it? Plenty of different presentations and choice of ingredients.

For condiments, you get garlic, chili padi, and as much fried shallots as you want to pour over the oily rice, which made for a pretty satisfying brunch overall.

They’re also very generous in giving customers more soup to top up the clay pot, so if you’re those who love slurping down that delicious herbal nectar, this would not disappoint.

Discuss : KY eats – Original Telok Pulai Bak Kut Teh, Klang

  1. Now when was the last time I had bkt? Hmmmm…perhaps I should go for it one of these days. I like the dry version though.

  2. I love BKT! But I have not yet ventured out to try the ones in Klang and gosh, I never expected there would be so many BKT restaurants in Klang alone. I suppose this one is a good place to start!

  3. If you do two klang BKT places per week, you’ll be done with all of them by 2020! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Good that they are generous with their soup unlike mo sang kor. only a soup spoon full when ask for additional soup and like have to beg for it! U may only sip! bummer!

  5. KY, I grew up eating pig stomach due family like making from time to time. Never try it with bak kut teh.

    • Vickie: I suppose it’s not that easy to find pig’s stomach in groceries in US.

      • KY in Chinese meat market in San Francisco is really easy. They lot thihg including baluts too.

  6. I like it when you say “as much fried shallots as you want”….and I can see that your rice had lots! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. I remember my 1st BKT at Klang also a restaurant called Teluk Pulai, not sure whether is this or not, hehe ๐Ÿ˜›

  8. Was there today..the soup was pretty bland and bkt taste at all..the dry version still okay.. won’t go there again..

    • Meg: their sup is definitely not the strongest tasting but you do get more of it and yah their dry version is pretty good
