I didn't try bak kut teh until several years into my life in Malaysia. I am not sure why, but I have definitely been missing out on one of the great foods Malaysia has to offer. The best bak kut teh we have found in Kuantan is located at 888 Food Court, which is situated just behind Vistana Hotel Kuantan, a little way down the river.
A friend took us for another bak kut teh 'under the bridge' in Klang, a famous restaurant serving delicious food.

The price here for my wife and I comes to around RM25, which is a reasonable price for this great food which we finish every time, and leaves us fully satisfied.
2. 'Under the bridge,' Klang
|Kedai Makanan Seng Huat is the venue for the best bak kut teh in Klang Valley|
A tip for eating here is come early! By 8pm it will be finished, and if you do come late, you may well be disappointed.

Here's a quick before and after of our bak kut teh. Safe to say we finished it all and thoroughly enjoyed it!
That was really satisfying. Would definitely return under the bridge when I'm in the area again!
