Ka Ka Bak Kut Teh @ Metro Prima, Kepong

Talk about Kepong, any food lover will not discount this place from the list of food havens. In fact, there is so many food stalls serving good food in Kepong that one will be spoilt by the choices available here.

Recently, I was at Kepong with Esther and her boyfriend for a catch up session with my buddy, Eddie who flew back for a short break from Sabah. Initially we opted for a western dinner, however due to the stall relocation, we decided to go for the Kepong most famous Bak Kut Teh, Ka Ka Bak Kut Teh.

It is not hard to locate this stall as Ka Ka Bak Kut Teh is situated along the busy road of Jalan Kepong, overseeing Carrefour Metro Prima across the road. You will notice a long stretch of tables and seats filled with crowds along the road. Though they offer a lot of seats here, however the crowd outnumbered the seats and you will need to be patient for your seat especially during the peak hours.

The Bak Kut Teh station

We only waited for less than 15 minutes for our food to be served after our orders were taken. I admit that I am amazed by their efficiency considering the amount of huge crowd that were dining in.
Yam Rice
Flavoured rice that come with some chunks of yam. Pretty fragrant and opt for this rice if you are a lover of yam!

Oil Fritters

As the claypot of Bak Kut Teh is being served to the table, I thought we were having a vegetarian version. Just look at the enormous amount of the lettuce.

Ka Ka Bak Kut Teh (RM 10 per pax)
Unlike the Klang version, the soup here tasted way clearer but it did not compromise on the flavour. The herbal aroma is not too strong yet distinctive enough for a decent taste of Bak Kut Teh. Definitely suits those who prefer a milder taste of herbal in the soup.

Our 4 pax of servings came in a very generous portion that have the claypot filled to the extent that it was almost spilled out.

Everyone has their very own preference of a good Bak Kut Teh and that applies to me as well. Some people might find Ka Ka Bak Kut Teh is the best Bak Kut Teh, but as for me I find it pretty decent only. It is simply because I prefer a slightly thicker version of Bak Kut Teh, one that have a stronger herbal presence.

Atmosphere: 4/10
Food: 5.5/10 (non-halal)
Price: 7.5/10
Verdict: Mild version of Bak Kut Teh with a thin aroma of herbal!
