There are some places that you always go to with the same people, and Founder Bak Kut Teh is one of those meals I eat with the bf’s family. It’s always a good meal (:

Let’s pick out the all-time favourites: Pig Trotters in Black Sauce ($8). A massive braised trotter with tender meat that falls off the bone, and gravy that’s meant to be poured liberally over your rice. It has layers of pig skin and cartilage, which according to hearsay and many old wives’ tales, are high in collagen and great for your skin. So eat away (? I’ve no idea how true this is).

Preserved salted vegetables ($4). For some reason, I devoured almost the entire plate the last time I was there. Preserved till it’s soft, sweet, salty and slightly sour, it’s a burst of flavours.

Of course, we have to talk about the Bak Kut Teh itself. There’s standard ribs and spare ribs soup, and both are equally delicious to me. I like the fattier and hence more tender standard ribs just a little bit more.

For tea – get the Xiao Ye Gan. Someone described this tea to me as: “喝了后嘴巴会有甘甘甜甜的味道”. The tea leaves a uniquely sweet aftertaste that you don’t get with other teas.
