Heng Bakuteh, Kepong

What’s the difference between a”Sang Kuat” , a “Soing Kuat” and a “Ka Hau Kuat”?

If you ask me, I couldn’t tell you, accept for maybe guessing that some are long bones, some are soft bones whilst others are “prime location” bones, such as the ribcage near the belly.

Yeah, I may not know the bone on sight, but I sure can eat and appreciate a good bone.

Here at Heng Bakuteh, they serve amazing bones.

If it is the Sang Kuat you are after (short ribs) you need to pre-order before you arrive, as Heng Bakuteh prepares the meat fresh on the bone. The Siong Kuat are the gorgeous, melt in your mouth long ribs whilst the Ka Hau Kuat are the much sought after, layered fatty-lean meat ribs priced at RM 14.00 per bowl.

Something for every bone lover.

For me and the pretty lass in the earlier picture, we both die a thousand deaths for the offal. The intestine and stomach here are amongst the best I have tasted and this is because the preparation of the innards are done with diligent care and meticulous washing. This is Heng Bakuteh’s labour of love so that all the intestines are washes so super clean, that one cannot tell where they have been (or come from!)

If offal and bones are not your thing, Heng Bakuteh still offers a fantastic selection of great Chinese old favourites to go with your bowl of rice. Black Vinegar Pig’s Trotters, Pork Knuckle in Dark Sauce, Choy Keok (Pickled Vegetables), Tau Foo Pok and Yau Char Kwai that is begging to be finished with a massive bowl of Yam rice or better yet, Pumpkin rice!

This is confinement food actually – suppose to give “HEAT” back to the recovering mother..

The heat from the concentrated wine, the ginger and the pepper can really burn a hole in your throat, but great stuff! Good on a cold night. Here you see the owner Billy adding the finishing touches to the dish.

  1. That’s yummy. It kinda of reminded me the Korean version of short rib soup.

  2. I really gotta revisit (and I want to!) and retake some shots, during the day. Too spacious, no walls to bounce flash. My lens not stabilized, I shoot at 9x faster shutter speed than the next guy (partially due to my very shaky hands).

    Wanna have this for brekkie soon?

  3. theres a place for the intestines at jinjang utara, damn shiok too!

  4. Offal looks tame compared to the Downtown travel post. I may not be able to eat horse penis, but I sure could stomach some offal.

  5. kepong, arrrrrrghhhh! so far away!!! got branches closer to the city ar? :D
    i can’t tell my short ribs from long ribs either, but i love em all!

  6. That pumpkin rice’s giving me a bone i tell ya! ;P
