Siong Huat Bak Kut Teh is located near Port Klang, so for those travelling from other parts of Klang Valley, this restaurant can seem quite a distance away.
However, since the Federal Highway toll has been done away with, the travel cost is now RM4.20 less, so there’s no excuse not to drive on over here for a hearty meal.
Another advantage – Siong Huat also has a dedicated parking lot for dine-in customers, which makes it all that more convenient.
Unlike many Bak Kut Teh places in Klang that serve mainly either bowl-type Bak Kut Teh (where you specify one particular cut of meat, served in a bowl), Siong Huat serves claypot-style Bak Kut Teh in either soup or dry versions, or with seafood if you like.
If that’s not enough, this restaurant also offers a variety of “tai chao” dishes.
If you are in a group of say, eight people, a perfect spread for dinner would consist of a big portion of Bak Kut Teh with Lala (spicy version), a regular claypot Bak Kut Teh, a dry version, a plate of vegetables, and steamed Garupa fillet with ginger.
All these go well with steamed rice, like God intended.
The seafood Bak Kut Teh is served with a pretty generous amount of Lala and chili padi. The cili padi is necessary in any seafood Bak Kut Teh soup base to balance the taste of seafood with the herbal ingredients.
The version here is as good as any in Klang, such as Yun Heng’s lala bkt, or Klang Coast at Bukit Tinggi, but perhaps a notch below Ah Tao’s version (sadly he has passed away). Definitely satisfying!
The regular soup-based as well as dry Bak Kut Teh were competent in their own right, with the soup version accompanied by pretty good tofu skin as well.
Additionally, this restaurant’s steamed Garupa fish is a must-order for those who love seafood. The ginger packed a punch, and the fish tasted superbly fresh and was done just right.
For those with some sense of adventure, Siong Huat also serves Cendol with actual Durian flesh (RM16 per bowl), a dessert fit as a meal on its own, and priced accordingly.
As for the meal above, it came to around RM40 per pax, including the pricey dessert. Absolutely worth it!
