Pao Xiang is a franchise Bak Kut Teh and has opened quite a number of branches around the Klang Valley. Pao Xiang’s bak kut teh comes in small bowls of pork boiled for long hours in herbal soup. If you are in love with Bak Kut Teh, I would recommend you Pao Xiang. One thing I like about Pao Xiang’s bak kut teh is the way they serve their bak kut teh. Here, each order comes in a bowl, therefore customers do not need to share their bah kut teh. This is so much cleaner and very much different from the tradisional bah kut teh served in claypots. I would recommend you their “Small Bone” aka Siu Kut Bak Kut Teh priced at Rm9.50.
If you prefer double the amount, you can also try their “Big Bones” aka Tua Kut also priced at RM9.50. But I got to warn you, the Tua Kut portion contains more meat and thus more fats. So if you do not want to feed yourself with too much of saturated fats, try their Siu Kut instead. In case you were wondering why there are lines along the the skin, the meats were tied while cooking. This is to lock the flavours in the meat, hence the lines are visible on its skin.
As for their Yao Char Guai, even though the portion is quite small, they are quite nice. It was really fresh and crunchy. It does not have the oily taste and yao char guai really makes a good compliment with the bak kut teh. I would definitely recommend you this.
I was going around Kuala Lumpur the other day, and I came across some of Pao Xiang’s other branches. It appears that there is a difference in their prices. So if you are dining at the KL branch you will have to pay a bit more compared to if you dine at the Kepong branch.
Well, at least now, you know that it is not necessary anymore to travel all the way to Klang for a nice decent meal of bak kut teh. Friends from our neighbouring country, Singapore can now enjoy Pao Xiang’s Bak Kut Teh too, as they have branch now at Serangoon Central.
