Shangri-La Bak Kut Teh @ Plaza Batai, Damansara Heights

A kopitiam utopia of char kuey teow, prawn mee & pork noodles by day, Plaza Batai's Restoran Shangri-La now seeks to be a paradise by night for bak kut teh, served in claypots with broth (RM14) or dry (RM16), bolstered by add-ons like pork kidney, liver or stomach (RM2-RM10). While Klang purists may quibble, the BKT passes muster for KL. Shangri-La's BKT is offered starting 5pm; the evening's menu is wide - everything from yellow rice wine chicken to lala soup for a potentially soulful dinner.

7, Jalan Batai, Bukit Damansara, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.

  1. The name is misleading, I thought this would be an expensive BKT but prices seem alright. Great to finally see a kopitiam along this row filled with many restaurants and cafes :)

    1. Contact.ewew: oh yes, the price per claypot here is not as punishing as, say, a plate of poached eggs :D

  2. I like the dry version. For a while, I thought bak kut teh is going places and they are serving it at the Shangri La...like when I blogged about a restaurant here, the Sheraton. :D

  4. I live in a neighbourhood filled with numerous of BKT stalls and restaurants, I think I most probably not going to venture to this place for BKT :P
