Seeking out Bak Kut Teh

I took part in a market survey awhile ago. The respondents and I had to pick out (Bak Kut) pork with bones that whet our tastbuds. What's more, we were paid S$50 each for our effort. Bak Kut Teh may not be my favourite, but when someone wants to feed you, why not right?

Fast forward to today. Where can we find a shop where we can get good bak kut teh? My wife and I drove to an obscure food centre in Ang Mo Kio. The place? Teck Ghee Court Market and Food Centre. The stall? Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh.

Now an expert after doing that market survey, I'd say that the meat is rather tender and it's also quite tasty. The soup's laden with pepper but my wife said that there are possibly some herbs in the soup as well. They have a host of award certificates that were pasted at the front of the stall.

One bowl of Bak Kut Teh costs S$6, and what's more, the stall also sells pig trotters. Many around me seemed to be eating that dish. (But that's so fattening!)
