  Bak Kut Teh
by l_joo

Bak Kut Teh is what you see in the photo inside the big claypot with hot soup in complete medicinal flavour derived from various Chinese traditional herbs and spices. The meat of Bak Kut Teh is pork which is not Islamic food. The porks are to be eaten together with rice as well as drinking the hot soup and hot Chinese tea. Bak Kut Teh is not side dish where sometimes I overeaten to cause bloated belly just because of the good taste of its soup. Bak Kut Teh is Malaysian food.
