Wet Weather Bak Kut Teh

With the recent bouts of rain, I've seen myself leaning towards certain "wet weather food" like steamboat, porridge, kway teow soup and of course bak kut teh.

This stall in Geylang serves up a comforting brew of Malaysian-style bak kut teh. Gently herbal instead of peppery, it had heady notes of dang gui and felt fortifying enough to battle the chilly weather. Order up the Mixed Bak Kut Teh ($5.50) and get a claypot of tender pork ribs, pork liver, intestines, tau pok and lettuce in a pipping hot broth which was thick yet light.

Ok if at this point, you are wondering how many bowls of rice I had, the answer is just one.... Then it was followed by Hokkien mee, hor fun and claypot rice at other stalls along Geylang, shared with my makan buddy. Moohaha.

Chew On This: Be sure to request for the soup to be hot when asking for a top up of soup as it usually comes from a lukewarm batch. The soup tasted so mooch better hot! #DontSayINeverTellYou
