Savoring The Best All Over Town…

SUPER LAI LAI BAK KUT TEH

Posted by Criz Lai On May - 21 - 2008|

Please take note that the stall has ceased operation in 2008 and the present coffee house has been renamed as Yummy Cafe. What you get from the coffee house and whichever stalls that carry the same name were not the original.

Bak Kut Teh is a popular Chinese soup in which contain meaty pork, simmer with many herbs and spices. This popular soup is taken with white rice or dark oil rice. There are quite a number of Bak Kut Teh stalls scattered all over Penang area. All of them have their own different recipes and thickness of the soup. The one that I like to frequent is situated in a corner coffee shop along Jalan Macalister. The stall is called Lai Lai Bak Kut Teh.

The reason we like to go there is that the owner is very generous with the soup as he will make sure that each clay pot he served will not be out of soup. We ordered our own selection of choice meat, a plate of boiled Cameron lettuce topped with a lot of meat floss, a plate of You Tiao (Yau Char Gwai or You Char Kway from the famous Penang shop) and four big bowls of white rice. Everything cost us only RM27.50 and the amount of meat in the clay pot could easily feed 3 adults. We managed to pack some back for lunch the next day. What I did with that is another story… haha. Could you believe that this portion is meant for only 2 persons?

In fact, there are still many other options you can add into the Bak Kut Teh clay pot as shown in the photo.

The shop is just opposite Red Rock Hotel. If you are driving down from Komtar into Jalan Macalister, you will see a petrol kiosk on your left. The shop is just right after that.

    I would say this is one of the best bak kut teh in town… but I would suggest them to reduce the salty level…..

    some time too salty…..

    their vege also salty due to too much oyster sauce …..

    This is the place is good to have when the weather is cold… and with a bowl of hot soup, that’s perfect.

    GUESS WHAT!!! THE PLACE IS REPLACED BY A FOOD COURT !! AND THE WORST NIGHTMARE IS, MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BAKUTEH IS GONE!!! I ASKED THE COFFEE SHOP PEOPLE AND THEY JUST TOLD ME THEY ALSO DON’T KNOW WHERE THEY WENT (maybe they just don’t want to tell me, scare i will not go back there again, which i will NOT!!!).

    AND THE NEW GUY THAT TAKES OVER THE BAKUTEH PLACE – SUCKS!!!

    Can someone find my all time favorite LAI LAI BAKUTEH back??! thanks!!!!!!!!

    Hi Jim! I think you would not be able to get them anymore as they have ceased operation since last year. Now the place has been renovated and renamed as Yummy Cafe. It’s under a different management now. There are a few around using the same name but they are no longer as tasty as the original stall. FYI… the BKT owner had gone MIA!!
