Klang Bak Kut Teh (BKT) Crawl - Teck Teh BKT on Jalan Stesen 1.

Offtopic: We are now on Twitter, so Follow Us on Twitter to get first-hand updates whenever we ... update!

Today we're continuing our exploration of the Bak Kut Teh capital of the world - Klang! We're in a BKT place over on Jalan Stesen near the KTM Komuter station named Teck Teh. It's an old and run down shop, and there's only a small signboard that's utterly unreadable from all the black soot/dirt/whatever that's caked on it.

But hey, being a true Malaysian means that none of that matters if the food's good, right? Just keep a look out for this uncle and you'll know you're at the right place.

When eating here, you've got the following choices:
1. Bak Kut Teh (1 person's portion)
2. Bak Kut Teh - Ribs only (1 person's portion)
3. Chinese Tea
4. Rice.

Yup, nothing else but the basics. No vegetables, no 油炸鬼 (You Zha Gui), no tau foo pok, nothing. Heck, they don't even provide you any light/dark soy sauce, garlic, or chilis. If you must have your BKT with any of these add-ons/condiments, then you have to bring your own from home.

That's OK with me though, cos the BKT here is delicious. The broth is more of a gravy rather than a soup, and is thick and flavorful. It's also a tad bit on the salty side, and you don't get much of it - so those of you who like to drench your rice with soup until it's like porridge are out of luck.

For this trip, we weren't in control of the ordering, so we got a lot of 'fatty' portion of the pork - trotters, etc. I prefer a mix that leans towards lean meat. Nevertheless, this is the third BKT place in Klang where we've eaten at and it turns out to be the best - as long as you're aware that you'll get great BKT and nothing else.

Don't know how to give you road directions, but if you've got access to google maps or a GPS, punch in Jalan Stesen 1 and you'll be golden.
