Kedai Bak Kut Teh Hin Hock

Finally another trip out of Singapore with new places. It's really a great pleasure to visit Hin Hock, though a run down place, it gave a totally different style of dining under zinc roofs and the warm environment yet enjoying the simplest food they had that probably in Singapore don't have.

Besides being popular with their Bak Kut Teh, the other item that we can left the place without will be what they claimed to be the first in Tampoi poached Fish.

Kedai Bak Kut Teh

Throughout the years of my life in SG, i had never seen such restaurant operations where diners dine in a large concrete compound and kitchen is just tucked at one corner. And what I like best is that diners can observe the scenarios in the kitchen while waiting.

Open Kitchen
One of the common drink when dining in Malaysia will be the "Liang Teh", diluted with sweet and bitter taste to reduce heatiness in our body system.

They were fast to place the dining utensils and chilli on the table. Over the right side, the saucer that filled with chilli padi, onions and green chilli in soya sauce gave additional punch to the fish if you are ordering one.

Sauce
This is a fresh and heavenly dish. I felt like dining in an expensive restaurant with such dish around. Not only its freshness stood up, the harmony of their starring fried golden garlic lends a heady scent and its coriander, added with generous soy sauce. Savoury and not overly salty, just too good to be true.

Boiled red snapper laced with their signature golden fried garlic, doused with homemade soy marinade and garnished with scallions.

Dining in simplicity with minced pork and Toufu submerged in the scrumptious sauce.Simply delicious.

This herbal Bak Kut Teh (BKT) is a definite spot on! It only came after we had finished the dishes with the rice but this is something what we wont get to taste in Singapore. A turn of head over to the kitchen and you will see a big pot of BKT placed under the fire with bobbling sound with its fragrance dispersed into the air and engulfing us.

Bak Kut Teh
I surrendered all the left over stomach spaces for this pot of BKT at the very first spoonful. It was rich and sweet in herbal taste, at the same time it was scalding hot.

I enjoy its food in such humble establishment, though wait is inevitable, I still believe the saying that good things come to those who wait. I will highly recommend Kedai Bak Kut Teh Hin Hock to my fellow friends.
