I was curious about this bak kut teh place especially since I had read so many reviews about it from my fellow bloggers. One day, I decided to take the plunge and give it a try. It's relatively easy to locate since it's next to an Indian temple and a huge carpark.
Like all bak kut teh places, you can customise your bak kut teh with the various meats, vegetables, beancurd and in this case, enoki mushrooms. Based on your order, they will reheat the bak kut teh with your selection in a claypot. Served piping hot to you on a basket, let it cool down a bit before you take a sip of the broth.
Am not sure if it's individual preference or whether I had very high expectations about this place but I felt the meat broth just didn't have enough herbs in it. In fact, the taste was quite flat even though it was a deep dark brown. I did enjoy the meats and the best part was the enoki mushrooms. Thinking back about bak kut teh, I reckon every one has their preference as I know some like it more Chinese herbal tasting, some like it with a clear broth while others like it thick and almost pitch black. For me, colour does not matter so much but there must be a balance of a meaty broth with a tinge of herbal taste or else it just won't be bak kut teh for me. I definitely don't fall in the category of the clear bak kut teh soup type. What about all of you - which category of bak kut teh do you think you fall in?
