Ah Her Bak Kut Teh @ Pandamaran, Klang

Mention Bak Kut Teh and one would immediately think of Klang, touted home of the best bak kut teh’s in Malaysia. However, there are soooo many Bak Kut Teh stalls in Klang that it can be rather confusing. In fact everyone seems to have their own favourite Klang Bak Kut Teh stall. Each stall has their own way of preparing Bak Kut Teh, with their unique blend of herbs and spices which I bet are a tightly guarded secret.

M has been regaling me with tales of this little obscure Bak Kut Teh stall in Klang, which he claims is the best he’s ever tasted. Everyone he brings to this stall comes away speechless and utterly blown away by its awesomeness. Naturally, my interest was piqued. And that is how we ended up at…..

We arrived at the stall a little before 5.30pm. They had just opened for business and were busy with preparations. But there were already people seated at the tables, waiting patiently. We joined in. And I was surprised when even more people came by to get their tables and wait. Pretty soon, almost all the tables were filled! (in just about 10 minutes too!)

I would sneak a glance at the stall, anticipation at an all time high. Soon, we were given our tea pots and tea bags. And the lady came over to take our orders. She spoke rapidly in Hokkien. But I couldn’t quite catch what she said (Klang Hokkien different from Penang Hokkien!) and so I wasn’t quite sure what I ordered!!

Shortly after, we were presented with….

I was very surprised as I’ve never seen Bak Kut Teh quite like this! I asked M ‘How come the soup so little one?’ I took one mouthful and I knew why… The soup is really concentrated and thick! Very smooth, silky and literally glides down your throat!

We had rice with our Bak Kut Teh. The rice was also a pleasant surprise because its not ordinary white rice. The rice is oily and flavourful somewhat akin to ‘nasi minyak’.

The fragrant oily rice paired with the thick soup…. ultimate Bak Kut Teh heaven!

I was surprised to see chicken feet in the mix, but was told that the chicken feet is what gives the soup stock its silky gelatinous quality. The pork belly was tender and flavorful…honestly one bowl for the 2 of us was really not enough!

Definitely one of the best Bak Kut Teh’s I’ve tried so far. And it runs out by about 7.00pm! So if you want a slice of this Bak Kut Teh heaven, better come early! For the 2 of us, the meal came up to about RM19.

Ah Her Bak Kut Teh is tucked away at Pandamaran in Klang. Unfortunately I am totally lost in Klang. But a quick check on Google says that Ah Her Bak Kut Teh is located near Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (C) Pandamaran (A), opposite Public Bank, near Pandamaran police station.


  1. my fren was telling me abt an evening bkt stall @ pandamaran too..hmmm might be this place then.. i heard u can even call in advance and ask her to leave some of the nice parts for u..

    then again, i always prefer my bkt in the day..

  2. I thought all the while Bak Kut Teh is served in a claypot but this one looks difference. Somemore the best of all… I really want to make a special trip down to Klang liao. Ahh…. hungry, haven’t had my lunch yet 🙁

  3. KL/Klang BKT a lot got stew pork ….. that is the best …. I will tar pao one pack from KL back to PG on upcoming gathering. Let you all taste the best in KL. Some more kena over night and reheat. The meat all soak with the gravy ….. fui yoh …. think also ~.~”

  4. aiseh, nice review. I think I heard of that place Pandamaran before.. but still not very familiar with Klang’s road. Gotta hunt for this stall on my next Klang trip then

  5. Glorious bakuteh! Yup that’s what my hometown Klang is famous for. Thanks, hvnt been to this stall, will surely go look for it. I believe it’s just beside the main road in Pandamaran town, rite?

    Being a Klang-ite, I cld help recommend famous stalls to you guys. Types differ as some are famous for their claypot, some for their individual servings, and others for their dried kung-po version.

    Happy Eating!

  6. Not first time visiting, but I guess first time leaving message.
    I never miss klang BKT when I go to KL, never.
    Will go a try to this shop. Thanks for sharing.

  7. email2me – thanks yeah! wah ta pao all the way ah…keng man!! 🙂

    lots of cravings – i think this is the place! pandamaran seems like a small place. dont have the lady’s number though…she like veli fierce liddat! lol

    pure glutton -i’m also more used to my BKT with soup, but this was a pleasant surprise!

  8. new kid on the blog – yes! you’re right!! wah cold cold day…tuck into a warm bowl of BKT..best!

    allie – yup, but seriously never tasted BKT quite like this. 🙂

    steven – yeah usually if the BKT dont come in claypot then it gets cold very fast and not nice liao..but this is not the case here.

  9. vkeong – thank you! i also same like you, lost in klang one. must pay more attention to the directions next time! heehee

    anthony – wah got dried kong po version some more! cool! yes i think this BKT stall is by the main road. its a long road of stalls. hope you can find the place 🙂

    soo sean – hi there!! thanks for leaving me a comment! love to hear from the silent readers! lol

  10. oh my god!!! the sam chan bak….. oily la… cannot eat. i need to control. hehehe.

    i also went to eat bah kut teh when i was in klang last time. but i forgot the name of the shop.

  11. Actually…the owner of this shop has other “brothers” or “cousins” doing bah kut teh too. They taste almost the same. One bro is operating in Taman Sentosa and another near this place but only in morning by the name “Sami”. I only tasted the one in Taman Sentosa. 🙂

  12. My office is near this shop.
    The owner is extremely stingy with soup.
    So, don’t ask too many times or you will get
    scolding ala Pandamaran style #$@#*^*.

    Overall not bad la only if they are not so “kedekut” with soup.

  13. i used to study near there, not pand A but pand B. I do go to this bkt stall once in a while. Being a local klang resident i’d say tis is the best bkt.

    but yeah, stingy with soup. u can only tambah if u tambah nasi. that wil only give u another 15cc of soup.

  14. Tempting stuff. I’ll give this a try, arriving about same time as you better?
    Pity they’re stingy with their soup. I can’t imagine a BKT stall that is grumpy and holds back on their soup.
