Let’s continue with the slow but steady coverage of Klang bak kut teh on this site.

Today, we are going to look at one of the more popular bak kut teh restarants in the center of Klang town – Sei Ngan Chai bak kut teh by Jalan Gelegor, located just a few steps away from Lao Heong BKT, which I wrote about just a couple or so weeks ago.

Like many other old school Klang bak kut teh restaurants, this place too is converted from a corner unit of a residential house. There isn’t any proper parking lots nearby, but anyone who’s been to this part of town before won’t have too much of a problem finding a semi-legal slot for your vehicle.

While most BKT places opens either at in the morning through lunch time or only for dinner, Sei Ngan Chai operates from 8 in the morning till about 9pm. You still can’t have bkt here for supper, but it covers pretty much all other meals.

We ordered portion for two that comes in a clay pot, as for the choice of meat, it was kahwan (fatty leg part with tendon) with some innards (tripe & intestine). I like the fact that they serve innards, as this is not always available at Klang bak kut teh.

The meat was as tender as other Klang offerings, and the intestine was superb. The soup isn’t thick as Ah Her or Mo Sang Kor’s style, but has a strong herbal taste and was served in pretty good portion.

Interestingly, there’s also a few fish balls embedded in the BKT soup. They were decent tasting fish ball, and perhaps it is something that the owner tries to set this place apart from hundreds of other Klang BKT outlets, but I think it doesn’t really have any business being in there, not that I really mind.

Anyway, I think Sei Ngan Chai is a worth a visiting again if I need some BKT loving.

I did say I’m going to try many bak kut teh places in Klang, right? Well, here’s another one that we went to one fine afternoon after another round of painting work at the new house.

Lao Heong Bak Kut Teh is located at the heart of Klang town by one of the busiest roads on Jalan Gelugor. If you’re turning from Federal Highway to Jalan Meru, you’ll pass by the area. The restaurant itself is converted from a residential unit with a large “garden area”, like many restaurants in this part of the country, with the typical BKT set up of boiling water on top of LPG tanks for tea making purposes.

Lao Heong servers clay pot style bak kut teh, and as with many places, you can specify the choice of meat (lean, trotter, big bone, small bone, kahwan, etc). The pot also comes with fuchuk (tofu skin), tofu pok, a bit of mushroom, and some lettuce.

As with most Klang bak kut teh, the pork was pretty tender and the soup packs quite a heavy dose of herbal taste, I can sense a strong hint of “tong guai” which I find quite enjoyable. Adding soup is a reasonable request here as well.

A pretty decent BKT and I would not hesitate to revisit, especially at after lunch hours whereby most other places are closed.
