Traditional Bak Kut Teh

After one of our movie date nights at Shaw Balestier, we crossed the street to have traditional Bak Kut Teh. I am a big fan of Bak Kut Teh.

The correct way to make the tea was supposed to be 1) wash the cups using the hot water 2) Add some tea leaves into the pot and pour in the boiling water and cover the lid 3) Wait for awhile and then serve. ** Edited: Oh my sister says that we are supposed to wash the cups with the first tea brew....

But he skipped step 1 and poured the whole big packet of tea leaves into the pot. And so, we had thick bitter tea for the rest of the meal -.-"

I prefer the herby brown type of Bak Kut Teh, although this peppery clear soup is fine too. Love the salted veg as they are a great side dish to eat with the rice.

A simple meal like this is enough to make me very happy :)
