Sze Hwa 世华 Bak Kut Teh in Kulai, Johor

Sze-Hwa-Bak-Kut-Teh-Kulai

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.

What is it about Sze Hwa bak kut teh then, that it is so widely copied? The only way to answer this question properly is to visit the original Sze Hwa bak kut teh in Kulai, Johor.

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.

At Sze Hwa, customers can pick the specific cut of meat that they fancy. As usual, I ordered my favourites, which are meat with soft cartilage and small intestines. They will actually carefully pick the specific cut of meat you ordered - I liked that :-D

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.

Also, for me, I love to bite and chew on the soft cartilage :-D

The tasty soup was delicately herbal and not too oily.

->> Sze Hwa is definitely one of the best bak kut teh shops in Johor – little wonder then, that it put Kulai on the local food map.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
