Ah Ping Bah Kut Teh, a Klang delicacy in Subang Jaya

August 26, 2010 by Galvin Tan in Food with 11 Comments


SS14 is perhaps the only one place where I can find the most Bah Kut Teh shops in the whole Subang Jaya vicinity. Being a Klangite, I’m love Bah Kut Teh(BKT) and I’m pretty picky about it too. The only shop in SS14 that can actually satisfy my BKT craving is Restoran Ah Ping Bah Kut Teh, the best BKT in Subang.

Ah Ping BKT is perhaps the only shop that serves a good pot of Klang-style BKT. Now there are plenty of BKT restaurants now in Klang Valley and all of them have different taste with different ingredients. Some BKT operators claim that they serve authentic Klang BKT but being a Klangite, I know very well which is authentic and which is not.

Most restaurants nowadays like to serve BKT in clay pot, unlike those days when they only serve it in a small ceramic bowl with nothing else but pork and soup. With the clay pot, more additional ingredients can be served such as pork intestines, button mushrooms, Enokitake mushrooms or better known as Golden Needle mushrooms, fucok and taupok. Some places they even dished in abalone and scallops just to make it more interesting and obviously, more expensive. Now I love my BKT just the way it is, a good piece of pork in nice thick herbal soup. I don’t mind the extra mushrooms, fucok and taupok but nothing else. Condiments with garlic and cili padi is a must. Another item which is very popular for dipping is the Yau Char Kwai.



At Ah Ping, you have the choice of having soup-base or dry BKT. Dry BKT is basically a kung-po style dish with pork, shredded dried cuttle fish, dried chillies in thick soya sauce boiled till it’s almost dried up. It is also one of my favourite dish at Ah Ping BKT. The dry kung-po BKT was not a common BKT dish until the late 90’s.

Ah Ping’s clay pot BKT is best served with fucok, taupok and button mushrooms. I never quite like the lettuce in my clay pot BKT as it tends to dilute the soup.

Whenever we’re there, we will make everything is nicely cleaned up. We will ask for extra soup and usually that too will be enjoyed till the very last drop.

As you can see, we enjoy Ah Ping BKT soup a lot and we drink it by the ladle.

Ah Ping and wife are from Klang and both of them are health freaks. The cycle a lot and some times the can close for business just to go for cycling trips.


Now Ah Ping BKT opens daily except for alternate Tuesdays. They’re open for business from 5pm onwards and usually closed by 9.30pm or sometimes earlier. I will definitely bring my friends to Ah Ping BKT anytime. Their price is pretty reasonable too. A serving for 2 person is less than RM20.

So if you’re ever in Subang Jaya area and craving for BKT, head on down to Restoran Ah Ping Bah Kut Teh at the address below:
