For the past 10 years going through and forth from Kepong, it has never occurred to me to give this Bak Kut Teh place a try, mainly because May’s family have sort of got a designated BKT place that they frequent since young. So after reading all about it at choiyen.com a year ago, I was very eager to try it but again the right moment didn’t come until a couple of weeks back.
Uncle Jerry BKT is located on the main stretch of Kepong Baru, where the Sunday night market is located. Being the dumpling festival, there’s not a lot of customer that day.
Kayden while waiting for the BKT to be serve. There’s a lot of BKT around Kepong but I think this could be the first place that sell Mutton Kut Teh or Lamb Kut Teh or whatever you find it convenient to call it. We ordered a pot of BKT, another pot of Mutton Kut Teh and Stew Pork Leg.
First to come is the Fried Beancurd, being served on a plate rather than in a bowl of soup.
Yao Char Kway, is a must to go with the BKT.
Rice selection includes, plain, oil and yam rice. It’s been a long time since I last eat yam rice and the one here is deliciously good. The fragrant of the yam makes you want to have 2-3 more bowls (although I kept myself to just 1).
The standard claypot BKT, which a mixture of everything although the highlight must be the next 2 dishes.
Stewed Porkleg, one of the best that I’ve tasted before and even better than the ones cook at my home. The meat is tender and soft and the gravy is perfect with a slight tinge of spiciness. The layer of fat is just nice as well.
My first time trying a Mutton Kut Teh but it’s really good. The taste is very different from the conventional BKT and there’s some western taste to it with it as I could taste some type of herbs being used. It’s almost like you’re eating in a western restaurant!
The 2 glorious dishes that I wouldn’t mind eating again and again despite the total bill was was about RM80 for 4 person.

As mentioned earlier, the night market on Sunday is huge so unless you want to stuck in a jam, avoid the place on Sundays.
