Melaka – Beef Bak Kut Teh

I had been noticing this place everytime I use the Bukit Baru way to town in Melaka, finally last weekend I had a chance to check it out. I got there at 7.45pm and it was so crowded I had to wait about 10-15 mins to get a place to seat. They offered bak kut teh here in 2 choices, one is pork and the other is beef.

I ordered the beef and waited for about 25-30 mins as they shop is quite laid back… well it fact its not a shop but a house on the main road which had converted it’s porch into a makan place. I also noticed there’s 1 table that’s having a steamboat with peppery bak kut teh soup with beef, etc.

I ordered a can of beer for my wait at RM7.50 and the family that’s running the place was kind enough to offered me the day’s papers for the wait.

Finally my beef bak kut teh came, its a well portioned claypot of beef, beef internals, beef balls with foo chuk and cabbage served with a bowl of rice. The rice is a sticky, but the beef bak kut teh was good! Its not the usual bak kut teh soup as I expected. Its actually this thick and peppery soup with all the ingredents inside.

The soup is peppery hot but very very good and as I was eating, I was sweating hot and nose was running. The beef bak kut teh costed me RM10.50 and the final verdict is good, especially on a rainy day! Definately something unique to try, but try to avoid peak hours!
