Beng Heang Bak Kut Teh at Air Itam, Penang

Days when it's raining (or just finish raining in our case) and it's cold and it's such a perfect time to have some chinese herbal soup and you are with special someone who warms you up!

What better things to eat than 'bak kut teh'! Direct translation --> meat bone tea (where there's a lot of meat, meatballs, button mushrooms (some people add shitake mushrooms as well), internal parts)

Though bak kut teh is famous in Klang, that doesn't mean Penang doesn't have good ones, right? :)

Penang has the best of all world :)) Go PENANG! :).

The cooking area at the entrance of the house/shop.

Bak Kut Teh
(Usually eaten with rice and 'yu char koay' (strips of fried dough), but we didn't want it because we're not a big fan of those deep fried stuff and also, can save our ka-ching ka-ching! :)

He says: Hahaha.. Love the soup but the soy sauce is not that nice.. Tastes different somehow. =D 
She says: My definitely favorite dish at all times! Meat inside, soft and tender. Soup, double thumbs up! Really love how perfectly balanced the herbal taste in the soup is :)
