Mungo Jerry – Bak Kut Teh – Jalan Raja Laut

December 24, 2007 – 9:33 am - 13,585 views

Ah of the local favourites, a true Malaysian dish! Bak Kut Teh (Pork Bone Tea Soup).

Although some countries have claimed it as theirs..

We’re great fans of Bak Kut Teh and especially the other dishes served with it like the braised pork knuckles, vinegar pork knuckles, poli sang choi, tau fu pok, yau char gwai and siu yuk!

Mungo Jerry is one of them more famous BKT establishments and has been around for a long time, it’s also very accessible if you are in KL city (Just head down to Jalan Raja Laut) and it’s open late at night for that post clubbing supper. There’s also one in SS2 – but I can’t vouch for that one as I’ve never been there.

There’re two types of rice you can order, normal white rice or the special onion rice. I always go for the onion rice, it’s delicious with BKT and it’s not too oily.

Of course you have the main Bak Kut Teh – there are various types and sizes and I usually go for lean meat. The Bak Kut Teh isn’t the best in town definitely – but it is pretty good.

And all the normal side dishes, get some Tau Fu Pok and Yau Char Gwai.

And I find Poli Sang Choi goes very well with BKT as well as Claypot Rice.

And my personal favourite – especially at Mungo Jerry the Braised Pork (I always get lean too). It’s really good and I specifically go to Mungo Jerry just to eat this.

They have some good fatty, crispy Siu Yuk too – so do get a plate of that too.

Definitely a place to check out after some drinks or on a cold rainy night. The prices are reasonable, it’s not too hard to find parking and the service is ok.

We’d give it an overall We Ate This 7/10.

To find it out just head out of KL on Jalan Raja Laut, Mungo Jerry will be on the corner on your right – it’s opposite Eon Bank HQ.

  3. I like the braised pork in black sauce. Nice!

    But their bakuteh tasted bitter. Was there in May 07 and again on early Dec. Still the same bitter Bakuteh taste. Err…definitely nowhere anything I’d call a good bakuteh.

    Go there to eat their other dishes…but stay away from their bitter bakuteh.

  4. Nic (KHKL): Yeah it’s been around a longgggg time. Thanks 🙂

    KG: Yah agree, it’s worth going for the braised pork….but the BKT is not that great.

  5. Been there…ate that.
    The taste are really different the most BKTs.
    Its more to a mushroomy,bitter taste.
    I don’t really recommend the Siu Yuk. But all BKTs are good aren’t they? =)

  6. You should try a different approach to bak ku teh at Yi Xin Ge opposite Tmn Mayang SS25 on LDP heading towards Sunway.

  8. Would this be the same as the one in PJ? Opposite RedBliss? It’s also called MungoJerry.

  9. FeR: Yes there’s one in SS2 opposite RedBliss. I haven’t tried it tho.

  10. sry for the super late reply. been rather busy of late and totally forgot bout this comment.

    i cant seem to get wikimapia to work.

    from SS2 head towards Kelana Jaya LRT station (in the direction of sunway). it doesnt matter whether you choose to go up the fly over or remain on the bottom lane.

    around 500m after KJ LRT station, there will be a turning on the left, you will see the bak ku teh shop in the middle of the shop lots there.

    here are the coordinates.

    Coordinates: 3°6’38″N 101°35’52″E

    happy eating!

  11. kevin: Ah ok thanks, I think I can follow that – I’ll try and find it. It’s pretty near my office.

  12. Their ex workers are opening their own stalls since they left Mungo Jerry at year 1998. I started to eat their BKT since year 2000 when they just started their business by selling at people’s shop side walk during the supper time. Open stall at 9pm and sold out at 1am.

    The taste are far more better than Mungo Jerry’s BKT. The way they serve the rice is the same which puts in crushed fried onions and a bit of special oil that cooked from the onions. The “LOU G YOK” is a must to try especially the gravy.
