Bak kut teh is the best thing to eat on a cold day... the hot soup warms you up and the peppery stock sets your insides on fire all the way from the mouth to the stomach. Mmm.... very satisfying :)
The more famous bak kut teh shop was closed so I ended up eating here instead. But it was really good! One bowl of bak kut teh ($6), a bowl of rice ($0.50) and the requisite you char kway ($2). You can top up as much soup as you like, so I ended up having two bowls :) Each bowl comes with around three ribs which doesn't seem like much when you start out, but you feel quite full at the end of the meal. I guess the soup takes up quite a bit of space in the stomach... but the soup is so good that I could not stop drinking it until I actually started feeling slightly sick :P
It's really cold and rainy today and I'm totally craving bak kut teh again!
Erm, I'm still trying to get used to the idea of carrying a camera around with me and taking photos of the food I eat. I remembered to bring the camera out, but was so excited to dig in that I totally forgot to take photos until the meal was over. Photos of three meatless ribs and an empty bowl is not really a picture worth taking :)
