Will you drive 40 mins to an Hour for a bowl of Famous Bak Kut Teh?
Kiang Kee Bak Kut Tea is located by the side of the busy Kota Tinggi - Mersing trunk road 1 - 2 hours drive from JB or Singapore.
When the Bak Kut Teh arrived at the table, we can smell the herbal aroma from the steaming hot bubbling pot. The pork ribs were tender and slightly firm. The soup is thicker compared to other Bak Kut Teh shops. We also ordered a pot of tofu puffs served with the Bak Kut Teh soup. We all were satisfied with the meal as it is difficult to taste the soup with that has this consistency.
The pure herbals and the fresh "pig big bones" have been cooked for a long time, just in perfectly mix the taste together for making people drink refreshing and sweet. After a long time cook with in the herbals, the pork has been simmered with the essence of the soup, and when the "bone meat" is separated, which is very tender and fresh when eating.
Verdict: Kiang Kee Bak Kut Tea 强记肉骨茶 – Still Yummilicious After 5 Years!
Similar to most of the bak kut teh in Johor, Kiang Kee bak kut teh is also served piping hot in a claypot. We heard from others that the Kiang Kee bak kut teh has its distinguishing feature, which it goes well with rice wine too. To enhance the dining experience, we requested for the special bak kut teh with rice wine. The rice wine was just appropriate to complement, not overly cover up the goodness of the herbal broth.
We spent about RM130 (approx SGD44) for our BKT meal (6 person share). Reasonably priced and affordable. Operating hours starts early and they close around noon time where most of the pork ribs have been sold out! If you are travelling up along Kota Tinggi, do drop by early and check out Kiang Kee BKT.
Located off Kota Tinggi, Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh serves one of the best claypot herbal bak kut teh in Johor Bahru.

Have you eat Bah Kut Teh cooked using Charcoal? Before you enter the shop, you can smell the aroma of charcoal burning once you open your vehicle door. Food cook charcoal always it give a better taste and aroma. Charcoal cooking is a traditional method and it use a lot of effort to start the fire.
Overall, the breakfast was very satisfying! If want to point out the difference of bak kut teh of klang and Kota Tinggi, I would say that it will be the soup.
We were satisfied with the meal especially with the reasonable price! Worth the drive from JB to Kota Tinggi 'just' for the Bak Kut Teh! I will defintely come back again for the braised pork knuckles and others!
