Teluk Pulai Bak Kut Teh @ Klang, Selangor

Whenever The Unc is back, a visit to Klang for bak kut teh (literally translated as "meat bone tea") is a must. We set off early (before 7am!) for Mo Sang Kor at Taman Berkeley, but unfortunately for us the place was closed due to some Chinese festivities. We then decided to go to Teluk Pulai Bak Kut Teh, which was not too far away.


Teluk Pulai Bak Kut Teh

My dad has been coming here for years with my grandparents. This is where you can find both soup AND dry versions of bak kut teh. According to him, this place is always crowded, and even before 7.30am, the place was starting to fill up. We quickly placed our order, a soup one with pork knuckle, tai kuat (big bone) and tendons and a dry one with just pork knuckle for 2 pax. Here, the way they charge is RM12 per type of meat or portion. We kind of felt cheated with the soup BKT since the portion was quite small and there was very little meat.

They still have the old-school style kettle on a gas cylinder for refilling your tea pots


The bak kut teh here is served in claypots. The soup here is clear, light and flavorful, and not too strong in herbal flavour. You can ask for soup refills, however each time, you will find the refill portions getting smaller and smaller. In true Klang style. We really liked the tendons, this is a part which always runs out when we go to BKT shops, so if you want it go early. The pork knuckle is also good, didn't really think much of the tai kut (big bone) though the kids had fun with big drumstick!


Pork, pork and more pork!


They also top each claypot which some tofu pok, fu chuk (deep fried beancurd sheets) and lettuce. Mushrooms are optional at an additional cost.

This is my first time trying the dry version of bak kut teh. We went for pork knuckles, and it was sooooooo good. For me this is way better than the soup one, though I would be more inclined to call this braised pork knuckles. Each pork knuckle is coated with dark caramel sauce and some crispy ginger. It is so flavorful, I just couldn't stop eating it. We ended up having to order another portion for 2 pax. If I remember rightly, there is some chilli for a spicy kick too.


The sauce is still bubbling away in the claypot when this was served to us


I want to eat this again!


Seriously good!

Some vege to balance out all that meat


Verdict: Seriously tasty dry bak kut teh, the soup bak kut teh is pretty good too, but it would be better to order the different types of meat separately.

  2. Dear Baby Sumo,

    I never get the urge to eat BKT whenever I am in KL but the dry version looks very tasty.

    In Sydney we use the Eu Yan Sang brand of herbs for our home cooked version. It's an amazing dish with the tofu puffs, beancurd skin and chinese mushroomms, one of the best winter warmers!

    1. We rarely eat BKT out of the home too, but Klang's BKT is good.

      We also use the Eu Yan Sang BKT sachet at home, it's good.

    1. Many Klang BKT shops still have this, but I get very paranoid sitting next to it. Usually I will sit far far away.

  5. Yen, I did not know that there is a dry version! I must try it one day. I love BKT especially with spare parts :)

    1. It tastes like braised pork knuckle, not sure if they cook it in BKT soup first or what.

  6. I saw this dish on a menu the other night and almost ordered it! I got something else instead but perhaps I should try giving this a go at home :D

    1. Oh you should! I usually use a BKT sachet, and it works well. We have it at least once a week at home but with pork ribs as it's slightly healthier than pork knuckle.
