I recently went on a short weekend getaway to Malacca, and brought home some Klang Bak Kut Teh (bkt) spice mix. I know I’m not in Klang, but I reckon I have a high chance of buying it in Malaysia.

I absolutely love Malaysian-style (not just Klang-style) bak kut teh because of the herbal taste and the generous ingredients in it compared to our local style: usually there will be tau kee (beancurd sticks), liver, intestines, mushrooms and more. Cooking bak kut teh is easy with ready spice mix. I added enoki mushrooms, canned straw mushrooms, tau kee and tau pok in my home-version.

Klang Bak Kut Teh (Sides & Condiments)To me, to enjoy a truly satisfying klang bak kut teh, the side condiments are important. I had mine with minced garlic, dark soy sauce, sliced chilli padi and you tiao (fried fritters).

    Hi Wiffy,
    Thanks for sharing this!
    I used to only enjoy peppery BKT but ever since I tried Leong Kee (Klang) bak kut teh at Beach Rd, I love the herbal soup with tau Kee n intestines! Oh plus freshly chopped garlic! I would love to get hold of the ready mix spices if available in Spore!

    Hi there, may I know where to get the wrinkled type of tau kee? Those I found in supermarkets are always the smooth type. Thanks in advance! :D

      I got it from the dried goods stall located at the wet market in my neighbourhood. Hope you find it!

      I am not 100% sure, but the provision shop name could be “Chop Chua Soon Huat”

      It’s a corner shop, located in one of the alleys from the famous Jonker Walk.

    I very seldom (or never?) had Malaysia-style BKT. Seems that this style of BKT can be loaded with ingredients :)

    I like that you make the whole set of BKT so complete when it comes to cooking it at home – from the You Tiao to the dark soy sauce and chili padi!
