Yik See Ho Bakuteh @ Pudu

So.. where is the best Bakuteh in KL?


We personally have the highest regard for BKT Yik See Ho. This place is situated in the vicinity of the Pudu Wet Market and is a hot favourite amongst KL-lites. Some may beg to differ or have their own favourites but for now, C&C bring their visitors, here. Our friends were staying at the Nikko hotel which made this place a convenient stop for dinner before the night’s party session began.

Where else can you see the butchers hacking away at the pig carcass (corner alleyway), in preparation for tomorrows rations, from where you sit and eat along the 5 foot way.

Grim? Gross? Well, this is BKT, Pudu style!

Not only that, all the critters of the night come out to play as well, as you sit and eat.
Thank God our friends are not squeamish, because that’s a huge blur of a rat you see there, on the bottom right corner of this collage.


The food was great. Being streetwise and all, we decided against the claypot (Why pay a premium for the same stuff in bowls – complete bollocks that it taste better in the claypot.. pfft..)

Once again the intestine, stomach, wobbly-trotters and the soft bone were big hits. The soup was thick, meaty yet herbal, in the right proportions.

after dinner… drinks.


“Satu Lagi”, “Stubborn Blonde”, “Burning Desire”, “Perfect Manhattan”.. are not nicknames for people.. they are names of some of the greatest cocktails in KL …

which begs the question – where can you find the dirtiest martini in town…

The dirtiest, meanest.. most yummiest martinis ALL night long, courtesy of the super slick bartender Ash!

If you haven’t already guessed it, that’s my favourite martini. The dirty martini.
(Gives you a dirty buzz that lasts till.. erm, the next martini.)

    I'm trying to locate a well hidden BKT place in Klang with to-die-for herbal soup! Tried that in 2003 after my friend brought me there.. but has since lost contact with him!

  • Nic (KHKL) says:

    hey, something's missing! bkt (again) after clubbing..haha! yeah, pudu is a really solid alternative to klang when it comes to bkt, no doubt. jalan raja laut also, me thinks.

    Ooh I think it's a nice balanced Welcome to KL package – you show them the awesome in the squalid, and then showcase the dirty in the pretty! Good one!
