Food Trip: Bak kut teh

Here's another must-eat dish in Malaysia and Singapore that is worth featuring in the food trip corner of my blog... join me as we try out and discover the bak kut teh . Bak kut teh The name bak kut teh came from the Hokkien dialect that literally translates to "meat bone tea". Despite being called a "tea", the dish does not contain any actual tea as an ingredient. It is, however, rich in herbs and spices like cinnamon, cloves,  dang gui , fennel seeds, garlic, and star anise which is boiled with the meaty pork ribs that give it its complex taste. Bak kut teh in Singapore's Chinatown   I hope they added more ingredients to my Bak kut teh Throughout time, additional ingredients were added to the dish like mushrooms, dried tofu, choy sum , and offal. Some Chinese herbs were also included like ju zhi and yu zhu .  The bak kut teh dish is best served with tea. It is believed that the tea helps in dissolving the fat that was consumed from the dish.
