Kee Heong Bak Kut Teh at Taman Eng Ann in Klang.

Kee Heong Bak Kut Teh is one of the older and more recognisable names in Klang when it comes to Bak Kut Teh.

Situated by the neighbourhood’s wet market, the restaurant is usually quite packed in the morning, with its stream of customers usually tapering off towards brunch and lunch time.

You can order Bak Kut Teh here old school style, meaning the piping hot broth comes in an individual bowl, or in claypots.

The standard choice of cuts available here are big bone, small bone, ribs, soft bone, kahwan and others.

They also have Yao Char Kuai (disappointing texture, like all other Klang Bak Kut Teh places unfortunately). More importantly however, there’s fried shallots to sprinkle over the hot broth, if you ask for it nicely.

Tua Kut is among the more popular cuts for Bak Kut Teh.

The texture of the meat and fat at this restaurant’s Bak Kut Teh is as good as any, with the soup carrying a favourable herbal note, although not nearly as strong as the likes of Mo Sang Kor or Ah Her, but good enough for claypot-type fare.

The broth at Kee Heong is pretty close to Weng Heong’s in terms of taste. It certainly comes recommended to anyone who wants to enjoy a hearty soupy Bak Kut Teh breakfast.
