Village Voice's Description

Though not really a sit-down dining experience, K. L. Malaysia Beef Jerky makes its mark by offering jerky that has little in common with what’s normally called jerky in America. The jerkies– called Bak Kwa, a typically Chinese-style of preparing meat that can sometimes taste more like candy than jerky– are spicy and sweet, rather than salty, and can be ordered in bulk—and even shipped across the country. It’s worth going in and placing an order in person at the Little Italy shop, though, as the jubilant staff ladies cooks up the jerky right there in store, within view of the customers, and are willing to vacuum pack it so you can take it away and keep for as long as you can resist eating it. --Shane Barnes

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Try the gorgeous, fibrous, compulsively snackable slabs of sliced spicy pork jerky. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

  • naveen on 05/05/09

    for snack time (playing-card-size, grilled/narrowly sliced). via timeout

  • naveen on 07/25/10

    try the shrimp and pork jerky (what a combination of sea-meets-land!). oh, also: what a name for a place!

  • Real Cheap Eats on 06/17/12

    "The unassuming gang at Malaysian Beef Jerky has mastered the art of making dried meat gentle on your jaw." Try the namesake beef jerky to see what we mean.

  • Tom F. on 05/10/10

    sliced spicy beef is the best, get an extra 1/4lb cuz that's how much you'll eat on the way home
