Bak Kut Teh


Undisputed as the best single dish in the world. Period. Satisfying, wholesome, filling. It's a complete nutritious meal in one bowl.


'Bak kut teh' (pork rib tea) is usually cooked in a clay pot with pork, various varieties of mushroom, lettuce and 'tau fuu pok' (dried tofu). The thick, warm broth consists of herbs and spices namely, star anise, cinnamon, garlic, cloves – boiled together with bones for many hours.


BKT is the stuff of dreams. There is never a bad time to have BKT. You can have it in the cool early morning, under the hot sun for lunch and as a late, late supper. Ahh…

God bless the Hokkien for inventing this dish. Pity I'm not a Hokkien though.

I am going to have some tonight. Cholesterol? What's that?
