|This is our bowl of Bak Kut Teh after half the meal was over. |
It looked awesome before we started but I was
too hungry to take the photos first.. :)
So what is Bak Kut Teh? Since I am no expert at the ingredients, ( I just love eating it) I sought the help of google. Well essentially, Bak Kut Teh roughly translates to Meat Bone Tea and it has pieces of pork meat and bones boiled in a broth with a lot of ingredients and herbs. When served, diners can opt to put in other stuff like vegetables and mushrooms.
Like every family we have our own special Bak Kut Teh shop and it is situated along Jalan Ipoh heading towards Chow Kit. It is the second shop from the left a few doors down from Ambank after the Damai Hospital ( I hope the description will help you find it). The Son In Bak Kut Teh shop is a small family run business and has been the talk of the town for years. Although there are two other Bak Kut Teh shops along the same row we feel that the soup and black sauce pork (i have no idea what the dish is called) is pretty delicious compared to the rest.
|Sorry the photo is a little blur coz it was really dark and the signage was really bright. |
To top it off I am not that great a photographer :p

So if your in town and if you are looking for a little shop that serves tasty Bak Kut Teh do stop by.. :)
