Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh – Best Herbal Bak Kut Teh in Singapore
There are many established eateries offering Teochew style bak kut teh in Singapore, but Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh is one of the few serving Malaysian style bak kut teh. While the Teochew version boasts a clear soup with a peppery taste, the Klang version is thick, cloudy, and features a herbal taste. We can’t say which one is better as it all depends on your preference. However, if we compare across eateries that serve Klang style bak kut teh in Singapore, Leong Kee is the undisputed winner!
The Bak Kut Teh ($19.80 for 3 pax) comes with pork ribs, liver, stomach, intestine, beancurd skin, and vegetables, soaked in a broth that has a strong and pleasant herbal aroma. The meat is so tender – you can pry it off the bones just by using your chopsticks. The broth is thick and rich in flavour, making every mouthful very enjoyable. Leong Kee also serves Herbal Mutton Soup ($6.60 per portion) for those who do not fancy pork.
The Dry Bak Kut Teh ($10) contains pieces of pork ribs cooked with dark soya sauce, enhanced with dried chilli. The amount of gravy is just right and doesn’t dry up quickly. We adored the fine balance of sweet and savoury flavours.
We also ordered salted vegetables ($1) and you tiao ($1) to pair with our bak kut teh. If you like some garlic, chilli padi, and dark sweet sauce to go with the dishes, they are available as well.
Open till late in the vibrant Geylang district, Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh is one of our favourite supper spots to go to whenever we crave a bowl of comforting soup, especially on cold nights. If you know of another good spot for herbal bak kut teh in Singapore, do let us know!
