Good Taste Bak Kut Teh

Came across a facebook post on my feed mentioning about Herbal Bak Kut Teh and the first thing on my mind is to try it as we seldom get to find the "black" style here. Good taste Bak Kut Teh is originated from Malaysia , Sarawak with more than 20 years in Business, serving Bak Kut Teh coupled with some Sarawak dishes. She is located along the shop houses of Neil Road with about 10 minutes walk from Outram or Tanjong Pagar MRT Station.

Being excited, I hurried to have a sip of the herbal soup after taking pictures of the food. The taste was good but still lack the strong boost of herbal taste if you were to compare to its Kluang or Black style of Bak Kut Teh in Malaysia. Nevertheless, I still have the soup cleared in my claypot. We also added the "U Cha Kuih" (Fried Fritters) at $2.50, letting them soaked in the herbal soup. Ingredients were fresh with button mushroom, Tau ki, Tau Pok, pork ribs,belly, intestines, stomach and lettuce. Meat was not too tough and fell off from bone easily. Pieces of food items were well cut into bite size which I think is good enough especially when we were trying to grab the entire piece out of the hot claypot.

The Dry version of Bak Kut Teh comes in 3 Sizes, $10, $18 & $27. Cooked in dark sauce with pork belly, pork ribs, intestines, ladies fingers and dried chilli. It was not spicy even though chilli were added. We were not a fan of this dish.

Love the wine and ginger combination with Pork Liver and Kidney. It's commendable that they cleanse and prepare the offal. We can hardly notice any foul smell of it. The gravy/soup is not too salty and goes well with the bowl of rice.

Claypot Chicken was average and you may want to save your stomach for other dishes. The cooking style is similar to dry version of Bak Kut Teh with dried chilli and dark sauce. Again, though it may look spicy, it was not.

They do not have plain rice. Instead, the offer Onion Rice and its unique on its own. Not to worry about being too greasy as it tastes as close to a plain normal bowl of white rice added with a tad fried onion fragrant.

Onion Rice 葱油饭 - $1.00
Alternative option to Onion Rice will be Sarawak Kolok Mee, topped with minced meat, spring onion , mix in shallot oil and pork lard. Noodle is springy and taste. It comes with 2 pieces of meat in the bowl and a bowl of fishball soup. The set was good except that the bowl of soup was too peppery to my liking.

Hits and misses, I will say that Good Taste Bak Kut Teh may do slightly better than the average but overall it does not give the enough WOW Factor to make us travel down to Neil Road again just for Bak Kut Teh. Pricing wise, it may be a bit more on a high side. There is not much Klaung Style Bak Kut Teh in Singapore, however, if you are like me who prefer the "Black" style, you may want to have a trip there and try out yourself.
