Dry Bak Kut Teh | Penang Food

Dry Bak Kut Teh, the banner attracted me to this food court which is located opposite Tesco Extra at Sungai Dua. Dry bak kut teh (bkt) is common at KL but not in Penang.

Seong Huat foodcourt offers a wide variety of hawker food such as wantan mee, char koay teow, claypot mee, curry mee, taiwan crispy chicken and etc.

It tasted very fragrant as the stall onwer stir fried all the ingredients before put into a claypot. The whole pot of bkt is wonderfully pungent with the combination of bird chili, dried cuttlefish, thick soy sauce and dried chili.

Yam Rice My plate of char koay teow (ckt) as I am not a fan of rice. Suprisingly, the ckt taste good. It’s not too dry and quite spicy just to my liking.

I like the slightly wet version with adequate wok hei. Compare to the one I had at coffee shop opposite Peng Hwa school, that one is more to dry version yet with adequate wok hei. Both also taste good.

  3. CRIZ LAI says:

    I have been hunting down all the dry Klang style BKT in Penang and none tasted as great as the one I had in Klang. I hope this one would not disappoint me. I’ll pop in one of these nights.

    Any idea the stall open from what time to what time as my dinner time can be quite odd.. hehe :P

    hymm, quite near to USM?
    but never seen or heard b4.

    the ones in Klang has lots of dried cuttlefish, and dried chillies, hence the stronger and thicker taste/

  7. Allie says:

    Simple Girl,
    Do check it out and waiting for your review.

    This one is good but I think still not compatible to the one in Klang.


  8. Allie says:

    Ya. It’s near USM. IF not mistaken it’s a new foodcourt.
