Sze Hwa 世华 bak kut teh restaurants are found in many places in Johor Bahru. A couple are franchisees and the others are actually copycats with no relations to the original Sze Hwa bak kut teh.
The famous Sze Hwa is an ordinary looking shop located along a row of shophouses facing the main road, Jalan Besar in Kulai – so it is not hard to locate.
At Sze Hwa, the bak kut teh made using fresh pork is brewed in these large enamelled pots over charcoal fire.
When properly done after hours of brewing, the bak kut teh is brought to the front of the shop for serving.
RM8 got me this bowl of Teochew styled bak kut teh with rice.
The naturally sweet meat was tender yet it still has the right amount of firmness for us to chew on. The small intestines had a tender yet bouncy texture. It too was naturally sweet.
The tasty soup was delicately herbal and not too oily.
