Real KungFu Authentic Klang Bak Kut Teh @ Taman Connaught, Cheras

Recently, there’s a trend in Bak Kut Teh restaurants to serve the meat and soup in single, personal bowls instead of claypots. At first it may seem to be because of hygienic reasons but Bak Kut Teh connoisseur will know that this is the traditional way of serving back in the old days.
One of the latest restaurant to join this ever-booming food business is Real KungFu at Taman Connaught Cheras, claiming to serve authentic Klang Bak Kut Teh. It’s hard not to notice this restaurant because Bruce Lee’s face appears at their shop front. Pretty good decision I must say, as it would certainly generate a lot of buzz and attention.

We actually discovered this restaurant by chance and thought it belongs to a popular chain restaurant with the same name in China. FYI the one in China is a fast food serving steamed dishes, also with Bruce Lee as logo. So despite the same naming it was obvious they weren’t the same.
A variety of meat like Tai Kuat (big bone), Sai Kuat (small bone), Sau Yuk (lean meat), Sam Chan Yuk (3-layer), Pai Kuat (pork ribs), Sai Cheong (small intestines) and many others are available here, all priced at the same @ RM9.50. One downside I could see is that you would not be able to customize your Bak Kut Teh as freely as you want. But it’s a boon for those who do not know what to order other than Pai Kuat, since the options are stated clearly in the menu.

Among the different meats we had I especially liked the Sai Kuat, no doubt one of the best part of pork when it comes to Bak Kut Teh. The fat distribution is just nice and the meat is tender, not too soft nor too tough.

3-layer-meat

Shown above are the 3 layered meat and lean meat, both also very enjoyable. Basically we were very satisfied with the food we had that day and even the You Tiao @ RM2 deserves a special mention for tasting fresh and still slightly crunchy. This is something I consider quite rare after having Bak Kut Teh on so many occasions. I think the only time I really enjoyed the You Tiao was when we brought our own.
Anyway, thanks to Mo Sang Kor and Ah Her, there is a perception that Bak Kut Teh that comes in small bowls like these might not have free soup refills. Well I can assure you that is not the case here, because we actually had ours refilled twice FOC.
If there’s anything I could complain on (honestly I am nitpicking here) I would say it’s the soup, which tasted a bit too salty for me when drank directly. Initially, I suspected the heavy use of MSG but I was wrong, since my throat felt fine later.

kettle

Also, this was my first seeing a Bak Kut Teh restaurant using induction cooker to boil the water for Chinese tea. I don’t know about you but I definitely feel safer sitting next to an induction cooker, than a gas tank with a boiling kettle sitting on top lol.

Real KungFu Bak Kut Teh restaurant has just been open for 3 weeks and they are planning to add more items into their menu like pork stomach and braised pork in the coming week. So if you fancy these you should pay them a visit soon.

    This place is really near my place, base on your feedback, will give them a try. There’s a Pao Xiang BKT on the other side of the highway. Personally, I find that the one in Puchong is good, but the one at 1U is so so.
