One of the things that make travelling worthwhile, aside from meeting locals, exploring beautiful places and befriending fellow travellers is discovering delicious delicacies from the places you go to. And today’s Malaysia food guide is a thoughtful reminder that this Southeast Asian country is also a great stop if you’re up for a gastronomical adventure.
The Bah Kut Teh is common in countries like Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore, China and in the Indonesia Island of Riau. “Bah Kut Teh” translates to “meat bone tea” though it doesn’t have tea in its ingredients. This famous Malaysia food is believed to have been introduced to the country around the 19th century.
The fusion of pork ribs, fresh pork and quality herbs and spices make up the delicious soup that will leave you wanting for more.
Fuelled by passion and love for Malaysia food culture, Chef Ah Zhong built Pao Xiang BKT from scratch with his desire to make sure that the history and goodness of Malaysian delicacy Bah Kuh Teh can be passed down for future generations to enjoy.
What makes Pao Xiang BKT stand out from the rest is the quality herbs and spices that are simmered for hours. This vigorous process produces a thick and tasty broth with an excellent tasting quality of meat.
The years of serving tasteful dishes helped establish Pao Xiang BKT as one of the places to visit in Malaysia. The growing number of loyal customers of both local and international travellers is a great testament to Pao Xiang BKT’s success in the striving Malaysia food culture.
Chef Ah Zhong’s trademark string-tied Bah Kut Teh is surely a must-try when you dine in this Malaysia restaurant but there are also a handful of other dishes to order during your Malaysia trip.
Take a bite of Pao Xiang BKT’s Chiew Pai Bah’s tender meat to satisfy your hunger.
A bowl of rice, tender meat and rich, flavourful soup make for a perfect and tasteful meal.
You can also enjoy the famous Bah Kut Teh at home – just add in the meat, when you buy the Bah Kut Teh soup kit you can boil with water.
Pao Xiang BKT is the perfect pit stop when you’re taking a break from visiting famous Malaysia attractions in the city because there’s nothing like a delicious soup of Bah Kuh Teh to re-energize your body as you continue to explore Malaysia’s beauty.
