Have I mentioned that I'm a "carnivore"? But it's not like I don't eat fruits and veggies at all. I eat fruits and veggies, sometimes. But only in a few amount. Meat, especially "red meat" is a must eat for me everyday. It feels weird for me to eat some meals without any meat in it. No matter it's a beef, pork, or lamb, and how they cooked, I love to eat them, always.
In Asian food, there's one popular meat dish which cooked in soup style. It's called Bak Kut Teh. Bak Kut Teh is a clear soup which made from pork broth with pork ribs as the main ingredients. This dish very well known in Singapore. It's just like a mandatory to eat bak kut teh for everyone who visiting Singapore. Just say some famous places to eat bak kut teh : Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh, Founder Bak Kut Teh, and Song Fa Bak Kut Teh. Aren't they sounds familiar??
Due to its popularity, some of them started to open their branches in Indonesia. It becomes an excitement for pork dish lover, including me. Since it's going to rainy season, a heart warming soup dishes is a perfect meal to be consumed. By the chance I had a lunch with Winston after finished his school time at Founder Bak Kut Teh which located at Living World, Alam Sutera.
