There are two types of people in this world — the ones who prefer peppery bak kut teh and the ones who prefer the herbal version. There’s no sitting on the fence for this one. It’s all about personal preference.
Whatever it is, this soupy dish just seems to have this magical ability to kick start your appetite, even if you weren’t hungry in the first place. And one of the best parts of bak kut teh isn’t even the dish itself, it’s the side dishes that come along with it. Preserved vegetables, vinegar pig trotters and braised intestines — all part of the package.
