Bak Kut Teh – Restoran Grandpa



This restaurant is very famous for it’s Bak Kut Teh in Selayang, Batu Caves near Kepong but I am not here to eat the Bak Kut Teh for obvious reason, I am from Klang.



Claypot Curry Fish Head is one of the many popular dishes in Grandpa’s restaurant. Wow! tasted really hot and spicy full of aroma that really goes well with a plate of plain rice.


In addition we had the Pork Leg Stew which was recommended by the waitress. The meat was tender and juicy.


Pepper Soup with Pork Stomach which was very fiery.

Generally the food was pretty good and I am sure the Bak Kut Teh was good too although we did not order it but I managed to ask for a bowl of Bak Kut Teh broth just to indulge my curiosity and the taste was not too bad actually.

Bak Kut Teh/Tai Chow – Kedai Makanan O-Cean






This Bak Kut Teh restaurant has been in existent for as long as I could remember and still going strong. One of my favorite Bak Kut Teh shop. They are popularly known as Ah Poh Bak Kut Teh by the locals here. Breakfast and lunch are served everyday.

Sometimes they do open for dinner when the Tai Chow takes over at 5.30pm. The Tai Chow is operated by 2 elderly couple without any additional workers. The man does the preparation and cooking whereas the woman does the rest. I sometimes imagine how they can managed all this by themselves. I salute them! The one dish I always order when I eat there is the  Dried Fried Fish Meat White Mee Hoon.

Bak Kut Teh – Ah Her Bak Kut Teh


They come in small bowls of different parts of the pig. From ribs to pork belly to intestines and other parts. You have to order them separately and one bowl is about one person’s portion.

As you can see, this version of Bak Kut Teh does not come with a lot of soup and no, you can’t add soup and here’s why. These moist, juicy, flavourful pieces of pork are braised in these thick herbal liquid that is impossible for you to request for more. They are not your typical extra soupy Bak Kut Teh that you can get around Klang.

One of the best in Pandamaran.

Side dishes mainly seafood and vegetables.

Restoran Siong Huat Bak Kut Teh is a mini steel structured warehouse built under a big tree-spacious with many ceiling fans to keep their customers cool and comfortable-a private covered car park and an open kitchen. A very clean environment for an eating place. The food here is generally very flavorful and lots of choices.

Bak Kut Teh – Restoran Yi Xin Ge Bak Kut Teh





Claypot red wine pork liver

The soup here is clearer, slightly sweeter with a strong herb taste. It is more recommended to those who like their Bak Kut Teh with flavor leaning more towards herb than heavy flavor. Personally I love the aroma and the meats are very fresh. Free flow of soup is a plus.

Bak Kut Teh – Klang the home of Bak Kut Teh



This Bak Kut Teh restaurant in Klang is famous for two things: its potent broth, and its stinginess in providing extra broth. This the original way to eat bak kut teh which comes in a bowl. My kind of bak kut teh.

Did you know that Claypot Bak Kut Teh is not traditional but a rather recent invention? The Claypot Bak Kut Teh trend was said to be started by Teluk Pulai (Clay Pot) Bak Kut Teh over 30 years ago.
