Wing Heong BBQ Meat

Earlier this month, I had this sudden craving for ‘Bakkwa’ and I haven’t had any since Chinese New Year earlier this year. Although ‘Bakkwa’ is traditionally prepared and consumed during Chinese New Year, however it has been a norm now to buy and consume ‘Bakkwa’ 365 days in a year. I’ve then decided to take my friend’s recommendation to try out Wing Heong ‘Bakkwa’ at Jalan Imbi, one of the oldest brand and company producing the tastiest ‘Bakkwa’ in Kuala Lumpur.

‘Bakkwa’ or dried meat (Jerky) is an ancient old meat preservation and preparation technique originating back to China. The general method for production has remained virtually unchanged throughout the centuries, but the techniques and recipe have been gradually improved.

Wing Heong Food Industries Sdn Bhd at Jalan Imbi

Wing Heong BBQ Meat is the main product of Wing Heong Food Industries Sdn.Bhd. The Wing Heong brand of dried meat had its beginnings in the early 1970s with its founder, Mr. Mun Wing, embarking on a rigorous product testing exercise among family and friends to come up with the ultimate recipe.

So yes, Wing Heong brand is indeed a family run business which has been preparing and producing mouthwatering ‘Bakkwa’ since the 70s. Surely, they pride themselves for preparing the best quality and tasty food products for the past 3 generations and it shows – Wing Heong brand of ‘Bakkwa’ is absolutely tasty with plenty of flavours to choose from and their customers who have been regulars for decades totally agree with it.

Wing Heong Honey Bacon
Wing Heong’s Honey Bacon strips are unlike many dried meat products at the shop. This Honey Bacon is rather new and it was introduced couple of years ago and it’s now a hit.

I’ve heard of the spicy flavoured ‘bakkwa’ but I haven’t actually tasted any until now. I must say it’s quite yummy and not exactly that spicy.

Wing Heong Pork Slices and Strips
The BBQ pork slices and strips are definitely a favourite to those who likes their ‘Bakkwa’ to be on the chewy side.

Wing Heong BBQ Chicken Meat
And of course, there’s always the BBQ chicken ‘Bakkwa’ if you’re trying to avoid red meat.

Wing Heong Dried Beef
And beef ‘Bakkwa’ if you prefer a difference flavour.

Wing Heong Dollar Meat
Or if you prefer a bite-size ‘Bakkwa’, you can try the Dollar Meat of Gold Coin ‘Bakkwa’

Wing Heong BBQ Meat is made of pork, beef and even ostrich meat. Pork and beef ‘Bakkwas’ are quite common but Ostrich meat is rather new to me. In fact, I’ve tasted Wing Heong’s Barbeque Ostrich ‘Bakkwa’ and it was pretty good. It definitely has got a stronger flavour to it but it is as good as the pork and beef ‘Bakkwa’. The ‘Bakkwas’ are usually sliced and minced and also comes in a variety of shapes, such as the Dollar Meat which is also known as the ‘Gold Coin’. Besides the variety of meat and shapes, they have a variety of flavours too. From Original smoked flavour to the Honey BBQ – and you if you like a little heat, you can always try the spicy ones.

Wing Heong Meat Floss

Wing Heong Seaweed Meat Floss

Meat floss is also a common thing to find at a shop like Wing Heong. Their meat floss is also as famous and as good as their ‘Bakkwa’. Besides the common ones, they have crispy meat floss and also with seaweed mix. I’ve tried all of it but I have to say that the seaweed meat floss it’s superbly good. Meat floss are usually served as a snack and as condiments. Meat floss goes well with dried meat as a sandwich treat and also as dish on its own with porridge.

Wing Heong brand also pride themselves of creating and producing some really good food products and snacks. If you’re at their outlet, you will definitely see a vast variety of snacks and pre-packed ingredients from their very own recipes and preparation.

Amidst the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur, Wing Heong BBQ Meat outlet at Jalan Imbi is definitely a hidden treasure. The main branch has been there since 1970 and as the dried meat ‘Bakkwa’ popularity grows, a few more similar businesses open up. Till today, Wing Heong BBQ Meat at Jalan Imbi is still as popular as before, thanks to their great tasting ‘Bakkwa’ and excellent customer service. So at the end, I ended up with 5 packs of their finest ‘Bakkwa’ and it’s not even Chinese New Year yet.

But come to think of it, Chinese New Year is just 3 months from now. I guess I better be putting in my online order earlier for Wing Heong BBQ Meat for next year.
