This was last Sunday’s lunch. A quick grab of food at the Food Republic Food Court.
Our little cousin and I had the same thing. She wanted to eat Bak Kut Teh, but ‘dare not’ go buy food herself. Why? Where we are sitting is at the other side and the ‘scary cat’ inside her took over. LOL… So walked with her to the stall.
Anyway, we had two bowls of this Bak Kut Teh. It’s one that is very peppery. I did an online search and found out that this stall Xin Chen is known for its peppery soup. It’s from some traditional recipe from Old Balestier Road. (where from Balestier? never mind, it’s not mentioned. haha.. ) Meat is tender and juicy.
We also ordered a bowl of ‘Xian Cai” (Salted Veg) to go with it. This is quite nice.
Goes just nice with rice. But today’s rice is a bit on the dry side. Since it’s Bak Kut Teh, just add the soup in. 🙂
