bak kut teh

my MIL and FIL brought Robina and myself to try the bak kut teh from this stall in Aliwal St, Sin Thor Bak Kut Teh (67452632). They serve the teochew style bak kut teh with clear, peppery soup, unlike the hokkien style which is dark colour and has a stronger chinese herbal aroma and taste. their pork ribs was lean but a tad dry. altho it went well with the soup, yew char kuay and salted vege.

the piece de resistance was the stewed pork trotters. the meat and skin was very tender, melt in your mouth texture.

the steamed pomfret (teochew style) was simple but satisfying!

there's two middle-eastern F&B establishment across the street, Cafe el Sheik and Amirah's Grill. apparently, u can smoke sheesha at the cafe. I checked out the menu at Amirah's. It offered lebanese hummus and turkish kebabs. might pop over to try one of these days. Robina and I had tried an Egyptian grill in Beijing which was quite good!
