Bak Kut Teh is a dish originating from Klang, a city south of Selangor. The dish is essentially a Malaysian-Chinese pork rib dish cooked in herbal broth. The locals pair Bak Kut Teh with white rice and Chinese fried churros (you tiao), but some like to dip the pork in a combination of dark soy sauce, chilies and raw garlic.
There are many variations of the dish and according to many positive reviews, Samy & Min ranks as one of the top choices in Kuala Lumpur. Established since 1989, many who are here have traveled a distance and queued up for some time before laying their chopsticks on the dish! Not too long ago, Samy & Min have finally opened its doors in Pavilion Shopping Centre, so instead of traveling to Klang, you can now try it here in Kuala Lumpur.
The word “Samy & Min” translates to “three beauties” in Mandarin. It refers to beautiful soup, beautiful pork and beautiful rice. The founder uses only the freshest pork and premium herbs for the broth, cooked to a full six hours to allow the essence of all ingredients to fully seep into the broth. Instead of serving Bak Kut Teh in a claypot, Samy & Min serves the dish in individual bowls. This way you can choose which pork part you prefer, ranging from trotters, belly, ribs and more. A bowl of Bak Kut Teh and a bowl of white rice, is all you need.
