Heng Kee Bak Kut Teh

Ah, yummy bak kut teh or 'pork bone tea'.

This restaurant has been around for as long as I can remember.
Which is a long time.
And may it be there for a long time to come, I want to bring my kids here someday.


All the magic happens behind here.
Look at them hard at work, churning out bowls and bowls and bowls of fragrant soup.




'Pai kuat' pork ribs


'Chee chang' a mix of lean and fatty meat.


Innards. Hehe. Not many people my age eat this stuff nowdays.
Shame.


Sweet taufoo pok. This place has one of the best I've tasted so far.




Mushrooms!! In case you haven't noticed by now, I'm a huge mushroom fan.



A family feast of the best kind.
Served the old school way, in plastic bowls.
And different parts and ingredients are seperated instead of being




Yau char kwai to dunk in the soup, I usually just ignore my rice and eat a bowl of this.
Mmm..


For me the soup is the key ingredient of any bak kut teh. I find the one served here to be fragrant, sweet and not too overpowering. Perfection. No wonder they've been going strong for years.

Non-halal.
