Popular Steam Fish (????) at Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh Restaurant (??) at Tampoi, Johor Bahru.

The Restaurant Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh (N1.49716 E103.70261) is located along Jalan Dato Toh Ah Boon, Tampoi. The street is just beside the Cycle Carriage Johor Bahru and it’s simple to locate. Many peoples thought that the Bak Kit Teh should be the signature dish but the true is their Fresh Steam Fish is the Popular and Famous dish in Tampoi area.

The Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh Restaurant is operating in an old wooden shop, and the place usually humid, hot and poor ventilation during day time…unless it’s rain just like the good timing we had on our visit. Their speciality is the Steam Fish, wiht the different cooking method compare with others…they prepare the fresh fish in the hot boiling water, Not exactly steam it…unitl the fish is ready to serve. Interesting!

We chose the outdoor area for better ventilation even on the raining day…

The cooking and foods preparation area is situated outside the restaurant, I felt they make more transperant to their customers is a good idea.

Their service was fast and good, and they only have few common dishes to serve which made the order process much more easier.

Our order :-

*  Steam Tiplapia (fish)
*  Minced pork oyster sauce bean curd (tou-fu)
*  Claypot braised vinegar pork knuckle
*  Minced pork bean sprout

The fish was fresh and nice! They boiled and served the fish on the perfect timing, and I like my every bite with the chopped spring onions and fried garlic very much! And don’t forget with the onion and garlic sauce that served together with the fish…
I can’t really tell the different between their cooking method and common steaming method, anyway…it taste Good!

The pork was tender and flavorful, the vinegar level was just nice which made the dish more tasty!

The way the prepared it was special to me, hardly can see so much of topping of minced pork on the juicy bean sprout. Not bad!

They started the business since 20 years ago and become one of the ‘Must Try’ food if you visit Tampoi area. It’s advise to visit the restaurant during the non-peak hour, that’s why we stepped in about 11am…just to avoid the lunch hour crowd.

The photo I took of the outlook was the old shop, they had swifted to the new location on the same street about 200 meter away, just notice their signage for easy locate.

The Damage for the above dishes included drinks was RM71.00 for 4 adults. I will visit it again whenever I pass by, but…only during raining day…:)

Hari Raya Puasa (Hari Raya Aidilfitri)

The Muslim community in Malaysia and all over the world celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri, or also known as Hari Raya Puasa, to conclude the Ramadan holy month of fasting. Hari Raya Aidilfitri is regarded as a merry celebration as it marks a person’s triumph and success on discipline and self-resistance which symbolizes refinement and rebirth.

It is necessary for Muslims to fast during the month of Ramadan, where they have to maintain their self-resistance in satisfying their basic needs and urges between sunrise till sunset. They abstain from food and drinks, as well as from smoking and sexual relations. It is also important that they keep their minds pure and not harbor any ill thoughts or intentions during this holy month.

The fasting doesn’t deter the celebrants from making preparations to welcome Hari Raya Aidilfitri. The excitement builds up way before the first day, where families start to shop for new clothes, delicacies and goodies and furnish their home with new furniture and decoration weeks. Brightly-colored lights, in the common hues of green, yellow and gold, can be seen adorning the mosques and the offices of government agencies.

When the new moon is seen on the evening of the last day of Ramadan, the fasting period comes to an end. Such sightings are made by religious officials at various hilltops throughout the country and when the crescent moon is seen, the following day marks the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

On the morning of Hari Raya, the men perform prayers at the mosque while children ask for forgiveness from their parents. The little ones will also be given ‘duit raya’ or gifts of money in small green packets. While the first three days of Hari Raya are usually reserved for catching up with the family, many families hold open houses throughout the month where friends and neighbors of other races are invited to share conversation, laughter and a variety of cookies, candy and traditional delicacies.


Ketupat is one of the must-haves at Hari Raya. It is served together with beef rending (beef cooked with coconut milk and malay spices) together with satay (skewered grilled meat). Other delicious delicates are such as lemang (glutinous rice cooked in bamboo tubes), serunding (dry coconut fried with chilli) and curry chicken.



In Malaysia, the first two days are regarded as public holidays but most will take a week off for this celebration. Those working in the cities will return to their hometowns (balik kampung) and reunite with their parents, relatives and old friends in the celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, leaving the cities quiet and empty during the festive season (usually there are very good airline deals in the weeks/months before the Balik Kampung period). Although the cities start to be populated again at the end of the week, the celebration doesn’t end there as one month of Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations follow a month of fasting. People continue visiting each other’s homes and throwing open houses until the festivities approaches its end 30 days later. It isn’t often that festivities last for a month long, so take the opportunity to catch up with friends and family while indulging in the various delicacies!
