Introducing The ‘Real’ BKT To My Thai BF

As a non-bkt fan, I did what I had to do when my Thai bf said that he still doesn’t know the ‘real’ taste of authenthic bak kut teh.

I called my siblings for help, and bless them for always being available for me. They got everything sorted out for me: my younger brother picked the venue, and my eldest sis and her hubby did the ordering. Phew!

My younger brother suggested Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh at Kepong. I was told that this restaurant is famous among Klang folks, and bkt eaters. Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh is also known as “Under the Klang Bridge Bak Kut Teh“, due to its close proximity to a (pedestrian?) bridge.

In Kepong, they are located at Taman Usahawan, same row as Sze Ngan Chye Roast Duck.

What a menu!! There are so many different piggy parts that I have not heard of. Only a true bkt connoisseur knows the drill. My eldest sis and her hubby did most of the ordering. I must say that they have done a great job, with just about the right portion for our group.

As the portion is not too big, we got to try a bit of everything.

It was bf’s first time trying the dry bkt version, unheard of in Thailand.

And he said that he finally knows the taste of the ‘real’ deal. Mission accomplished! Now he knows who to call when he wants to have bkt … not me, of course.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
