Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh, Kota Tinggi

 It was a Saturday morning and my sis in law suggested we drive to Kota Tinggi to try the famous Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh. This was a famous eatery in the south and as if you google it, you can find lots of entries on this restaurant. Though it was closed around 1pm (opens at 7am), most of the time, the BKT will finished by 11am+. We reached there around 10am+ . It was a bright sunny morning which makes an enjoyable drive,  though it was slightly jam after Ulu Tiram.

It was not difficult to find the place as it was located by the roadside. If you are coming from JB,  it was a short drive  after the junctions to Desaru and Kota Tinggi and located at the right

It was already lots of crowd when we reached there

One nice thing is that the claypot are cooked with charcoals. There were so many pots there!


Busy preparing the food

We ordered a pot of BKT, fried beancurd, otak-otak and a small plate of vegetables.

The BKT was very 'kao' and it was really good. The meat too, was well-cooked. Not too hard and soft , jut nice! There was also lots of mushrooms.

Vegetables - 'mui' choy

Fried beancurd in BKT soup

Otak-Otak - it was spicy!

Enjoying the BKT with a nice pot of chinese tea

Love the environment there. It was cooling under the shades.

 Address - Batu 8. Jalan Mawai , Kota Tinggi, Johor.
Tel:- 07- 8821290

 I will planned to come again and next time, will visit Desaru which is around 45 mins drive from here.

  4. wah, so you are a fans of BKT?? i don't really fancy BKT actually.. usually if i go for BKT, i probably only have the soup and the taufu or veggie only, and a little bit of the meat if they are lean..
