We were pleasantly surprised to find out that another bak kut teh shop has sprang up in this area, especially after our poor experience with another outlet (which has ceased operations since then).
Located near the famous Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice shop, we guess competition must be pretty steep. On a Tuesday night, both places were relatively quiet, and we thought that we should give bak kut teh a try 🙂
In addition to bak kut teh, this place also does zhi char stuff, and the sets that they were offering included both bak kut teh and steamed fish. We did not feel like having fish though, so we opted for:
- Prime Rib Bak Kut Teh ($9+10% service charge): More expensive than the normal $6.50 pork rib version, the soup was quite peppery and heartwarming, but the meat was unfortunately quite a letdown. The meat was not particularly tender, neither did it absorb the flavours of the soup. We topped up soup twice since it was the better part of this dish.
- Braised Intestines ($6.50+): This was definitely better than the bak kut teh. We like that it was tender but yet had sufficient bite to it.
- Kailan with Oyster Sauce ($6+): This was pretty standard.
- Claypot Beancurd ($12+ for small): The beancurd cubes were silky soft inside, and the braised mushrooms retained a good firmness. We enjoyed this dish too.
