Bak Kut Teh @ Sin Ming
Which do you prefer? The Herbal type (KL style) or the Peppery type (Singapore style)? I love herbs and spices so both styles appeal to me. My preference varies according to my mood.
My parents had been telling me about their favourite Bak Kut Teh stall in Sin Ming for a while now. Whilst I have heard of the place, I'd never visited it until a few weeks ago.
Bak Kut Teh
In spite of the tough pork rib, I loved the broth as it was very tasty. The broth here is clear unlike the light brown/dark brown versions at some other stalls. It's prepared in the Singaporean style, I wish it had a little more pepper though. Some people equate the colour of the soup with how good it tastes (ie. they tend to think of clear broths as being dilute and devoid of flavour). They should be pleased to discover that the clear broth here is robustly flavoured. Bak Kut Teh stalls are great as we get refills. The lady pours the soup from a huge kettle, how practical! I love to drink soup as it's one of my favourite Comfort Foods! This is definitely a MUST-TRY!
