Food – Zhao Shi Bak Kut Teh @ Balestier

I kept searching for the name of this Bak Kut Teh stall but I just couldn’t. The only name that I saw, was on a piece of board hanging at the top of the cooker, stating “Zhao Shi Bak Kut Teh”, which means “Morning Market Bah Kut Teh”. So could this be it? Oh well, I don’t know and I never ask. But no worries, this stall doesn’t open just in the morning.

This was the second time that I came here to eat. Where is it? Well,┬áthis stall is┬álocated in a coffeeshop just beside Boon Tong Kee, on the right side of it (on the left is a hawker area). So it’s not really that difficult to locate.

Anyway, don’t expect air-con. It’s really just a normal coffeeshop which seems to only sell Bak Kut Teh. And there always seem to be people eating.

Nice? It’s still as peppery, though not as bad as the Founder Bak Kut Teh located further down (or up) the road. Overall the soup is still nice. But seems a little expensive. We ordered 2 bowls of Bah Kut Teh, 1 salted vegetables, 1 you tiao and 2 bowls of rice, and it cost around S$15. The quantity wasn’t a lot either. But then again, it still tasted nice, especially if you like the “white” kind.

No harm trying. To go back again… guess it depends on individual. But thankfully, you don’t really need to queue up for it. Will definitely be better if you eat this for dinner instead of lunch.
