Bak Kut Teh Halal
In the news today, JAKIM said that the term bak kut teh halal is inappropriate and cannot be deemed halal because it still carried an “illegal name” under Islamic law. Which means, even if the chef uses ingredients like chicken and vegetables, that dish still won't be recognised as a halal dish and won't be certified as halal. I'm guessing that the people in JAKIM is associating the words bak kut teh with our dear friend, the little piggy. After all, the origins of this famous dish did start with Mr Oinkers.

So, all the chefs in big name hotels wishing to introduce halal BKT, you guys cannot use the words "BKT Halal", because JAKIM says it's not halal and it is an illegal name. BKT is an illegal name. Illegal, geddit? Tak boleh guna perkataan "BKT halal". Even if your version of BKT is ayam, kambing, lembu or sayur. Tak boleh guna "BKT halal". Illegal, faham? Must use other names. Maybe call it "Sup Herba Daging"....

BAK-KUT-TEH = MEAT-BONE-TEA (direct translation). Me laiks my BKT~ Yumz
