** Update: Lim Kee has closed down. Recommend to try Shang Pim instead, it’s just further down the road. **
There are a few Bak Kut Teh restaurants along Jalan Development in Taman Kepong with Lieong Kee being the most famous one. Lim Kee, which only opens at night could be seen as the second most popular. It’s a no frills Bak Kut Teh restaurant with only a handful of simple dishes to order, but done right.
The soup version of Bak Kut Teh here is more faithful to the Klang style – it had a strong herbal taste with a hint of sweetness, which is quite the opposite of Lieong Kee’s.
The dry version (cooked with dried chillies, dried cuttlefish and dark soya sauce) is also available here and I feel it’s a must order. I used to think Hing Kee cooks the best rendition of this dish in Kepong but the taste had changed recently for don’t know what reasons.
Lim Kee does it right by not skimping with the chillies and cuttlefish. The end result was a spicy, flavourful and aromatic meaty dish that once you start eating, you can’t stop.
A meal like this complete with a serving of veggies and fried crullers came to a little over RM30. We were very satisfied with Lim Kee’s offerings and will certainly return again especially for their delicious dry Bak Kut Teh.
