More often that not, new eateries were introduced to me through recommendations by my friends and/or colleagues. Whether I asked for new places or they mentioned about it frequently, somehow or some way, I will end up at that particular recommended shop / restaurant eventually.

Restoran T.T.K.

And it was such the case for this restaurant which I got to know via my colleague. Tucked in a quiet neighbourhood of Pandan Jaya, it is said that they serve / sell one of the best bak kut teh (BKT) dishes outside of Klang area (the birth place of the legendary well loved dish). It is also said that they were really famous back in the days when they were selling in Pudu market before moving to this location. Locating this restaurant was a breeze because we got our coordinates right (and also thanks to Google Maps, in a way).


The restaurant was partially filled when we arrived at about 730PM and by 8PM (or so) there were very few vacant tables left. The waiter who took our order were really fluent in Cantonese and that he spoke really fast left us stunned momentarily.

Double Boiled Bak Kut Teh with Extra Herbs

BKT and steamed fish were their forte but it was their Double Boiled Bak Kut Teh with Extra Herbs (RM32) that got us there in the first place. Initially, we were served a normal one due to our confusion and/or mistake but thanks to the friendly and understanding waiter, he changed ours to the former (double boiled one) in a jiff.

Double Boiled Bak Kut Teh with Extra Herbs

Came in a huge porcelain bowl, it can easily feed two person. Despite being called BKT, I somehow felt that it was more of herbal soup than that of BKT as it lacked of the distinctive BKT trademark taste. But then again, I could be wrong though as I’m so used to the one I frequent to.

Double Boiled Bak Kut Teh With Extra Herbs

Nevertheless, it was hearty herbal-y soup that could easily warm one’s soul. Chunks of fork-tender meat, ribs, mushrooms and pig stomach were found in the soup. Oh yes… there were abundance of wolfberries and other unidentifiable chinese herbs too which made the soup rather naturally sweet. The fork-tender meat was infused with herbs while the mushrooms didn’t overpower the taste… which I doubt they could anyway.

Yam Rice

Their Yam Rice (RM1.60) was pretty good too. Each grain of rice was infused perfectly with the essence of yam and there were tiny yam cubes which were soft and tender. I made a mistake of opting for a normal white rice as the yam version went really well with the BKT.

Tau Fu Pok


You Tiao

There was nothing to shout about for the vegetables and tau fu pok (beancurds) as they were just normal. The you tiao was average too despite being slightly crispy on the exterior.

Restoran T.T.K.

The meal came to RM50 (on the dot) for two person including a pot of tea. The Double Boiled BKT pretty much dominated a huge chunk of the bill but it is understandable since they used extra chinese herbs and what’s not to boil this hearty soup. The cleanliness of the restaurant was slightly better than I expected while comfort was assured since the restaurant was open air. Would I return again? Definitely… if I’m craving for extra ‘strong’ version of BKT.

bookmark_borderBreakfast At Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh, Taman Berkeley

Before this, I could not remember the last time I had bak kut teh from Klang for breakfast. I guess it has been that long that I could not remember the exact month, let alone the date although I do remember the day (it was a Saturday). But occasionally, in between that long period, I did actually get my bak kut teh dosage albeit not as tasty as the ones from Klang.

And on one fine (but busy) Saturday morning, the day has come to fulfill my cravings for the much touted and loved by Klang folks; bak kut teh.

Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh

Reputed for its cooking technique, Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh is no stranger to bak kut teh arena. Their business are that good that they have expanded to more than 10 outlets around the Klang Valley dishing out bowls of herbal porky goodness for its loyal customers’ enjoyment / consumption.

Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh

Unlike the one I usually go to, Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh serve the porky goodness in individual bowls instead of having everything in a (huge) claypot. It’s a good thing I would say as the less important stuffs such as vegetables and mushrooms that can be found in the claypot will dilute the flavour of the soup. Besides, by this way, I’d know the amount of meat (and other stuff) they serve per bowl. In other words, they won’t skimp on the meat by giving more straw mushrooms, beancurds, lettuce and what’s not in it. Speaking of which, they do not have any in the bowl although they do offer vegetables that goes by per plate.


Another interesting that I found was that there was a tiny burner beneath each bowl to warm the dish. Although I do not think it will add much heat to the dish since we sat in air-condition area, but I have to give them brownie points for presentation wise.


Chinese Tea

Chinese tea. The mandatory drink for any bak kut teh session to ease down the oily fatty affair. As usual, we brought our own tea leaves and hence, we were charged RM0.50 per person for warm water.

Bak Kut Teh

We ordered 2 types of meat and 2 types of spare part dishes on that day. Pai Kut (排骨), Luan Kut (软骨), Pig Stomach (肚) and Teng Kia (肠子). Each bowl was filled to the brim with the exception of Pai Kut as they were bigger and longer than the bowl they were in.

Safe to say, I liked the soup as much as I liked the one from my usual hunt. It was intense, aromatic and flavourful yet it wasn’t overpowering or bitter whilst it has the natural sweetness from the pork itself. Although we didn’t ask for any, the soup is refillable upon request (with extra charge, maybe). The meat was cooked nicely; fork tender and tasty.

Layered Intestines

Pig Stomach

Pig Stomach (肚)

The only gripe we had was the layered intestines. Somehow, it has bitter aftertaste from it. The soup itself wasn’t spared either as it was slightly bitter compared to others. According to them, they weren’t sure either to what causes the intestines to be bitter. The pig stomach was alright though. Another tiny issue was the You Tiao (油条). Although it was crispy on the exterior and soft inside, it was slightly sweet compared to others.

Priced at RM8.50 per bowl (it may vary according to the location of the branch / shop) except for the You Tiao (油条), I enjoyed the meal thoroughly. The environment of the shop was clean and comfortable with the option of sitting in air-condition area or outside shaded area. The service was prompt. Now that I have another shop / restaurant in my Bak Kut Teh list, I wouldn’t mind coming here again and again and again… if time permits.
