Their Special Bak Koot Teh (from $10)as the brand name suggestsis served in a claypot packed with tender pork ribs, immersed in a broth that’s also loaded with lettuce, corn, button mushrooms, and fried beancurd skin. This bak kut teh is cooked Hokkien-style, which is said to be sweeter due to the dark soya sauce that’s added to the soup, and a primarily herbal flavour.
