2. Bak Kut Teh (潮州肉骨茶)
Eggtip: Please take note of the business hours to avoid disappointment!
It’s so hard to find good, proper Bak Kut Teh in Singapore (read: non-pepper Bak Kut Teh with proper, herbal soup), so Bak Kut Teh is always one of those “must eat” for me when travelling to Malaysia (Klang has probably the best BKT and is one of my favourite places for BKT).
The soup is fragrant and smooth. It’s herbal, but not the kind where you feel like you’re drinking traditional Chinese medicine. The meat is sweet and tender, and the portion is good enough for the 5 of us. My number 2 choice after the blue rice.
One has to note that BKT is actually considered a breakfast in Malacca (and KL, too). We were not able to find out what the business hours were for this wonderful find, but our source (read: local) told us to just go before noon to avoid disappointment, since it is primarily a breakfast thing.
