Bak Kut Teh, a popular Chinese dish, is usually eaten with noodles or rice. However it can also be enjoyed on its own. “Bak Kut Teh” is a dish that originated in Klang. This dish is made up of short ribs and pork innards. It’s then simmered at low heat for hours.
Bak Kut Teh’s highlight is its tender and soft meat. The meat in the broth as well as the complex herbal flavors are evident. You can also add vegetables and dried tofu to make it a complete meal.
Every gourmet will love this delicious combination of lean and fatty meats in a rich broth. It’s no wonder Johoreans cannot get enough of it. Here’s a list of my favorite Bak Kut Teh restaurants in Johor Bahru that you can read about or try.
1. Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh
Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh’s unique feature is their robust, herbal Bak Kut Teh broth. This ensures that every customer leaves satisfied after eating.
Kiang Kee Bakkut Teh is a comforting dish that can be prepared with herbals and dang gui, which are great for your health. Their Bak Kut Teh is made entirely with charcoal. This is thought to add an extra aroma to the Bak Kut Teh.
Bak Kut Teh meat is firm, but it still tastes sweet when cooked in herbal for a long period. You can also feel the trapped ‘danggui’ taste if you eat it slowly and carefully.
If you decide to give it a shot, we recommend you get there as soon as possible. Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh is always crowded with customers. Usually, they sell all of their Bak Kut Teh by noon.
2. Restoran Sze Hwa (Original Shop)
Ask any Johoran locals where they can find good Kulai Bak Kut Teh. This restaurant has been serving authentic Kulai Bak Kut Teh for over 30 years.
Restoran Sze Hwa’s Bak Kut Teh is a homey, delicious dish that can be enjoyed by up to four people. The herbal Bak Kut Teh broth has a darker color and a garlicky flavor. Their pork ribs are very chewy and meaty.
3. Old Place Bak Kut Teh
Old Place Bak Kut Teh offers heartwarming, home-cooked Bak Kut Teh. We are certain that you will enjoy the delicious, sweetly-flavored translucent light broth Bak Kut Teh made with a homey recipe.
The Bak Kut Teh’s authentic, smoky flavors are preserved to give you a new twist on this popular dish. The broth is light in saltiness, and it is made just right to highlight the natural flavors of pork.
The highlight of this restaurant’s Bak Kut Teh is the yam rice option. If you love yam, they may include lots of them in their rice.
4. Ah Loong Bak Kut Teh
Ah Loong Bak Kut Teh is a unique Bak Kut Teh in Johor Bahru. He offers Bak Kut Teh with his own ideas. You can make the soup clearer and more nutritious by adding more vegetables to it than herbs. It will have very little herbal flavor.
The tender, soft ribs are still delicious. Every bite of the rich fats and skin that meld with the tender, lean meat is bliss. This is a refreshing departure from the usual thick and dark Bak Kut Teh.
Ah Loong Bak Kut Teh is a great place to visit, with a price range of RM5 to RM20.
5. E Pin Bak Kut Teh
This little gem is located on Jalan Indah’s short street. It looks more like a Chinese-style kopitiam. Mr Kenny, the owner of this Bak Kut Teh believes that they could attract more customers if their Bak Kut Teh quality and taste is better. They only use the best quality pork and other ingredients to create their Bak Kut Teh.
Two versions of Bak Kut Teh would be offered, the soupy Bak Kut Teh or dry Bak Kut Teh. The pork ribs for the soupy Bak Kut Teh are cooked to a tender, but firm, texture.
Its rich dark broth and rich herbal broth are very distinctive, and you won’t find another one anywhere else.
Bak Kut Teh, their dry version of Bak Kut Teh, is actually claypot dried pork knuckles Bak Kut Teh. These pork knuckles cook perfectly and easily fall off with a gentle bite. It also has a creamy, spongy texture.
