Penang has been hit by what we would like to call, EXTREME SUMMER. It means no rain for such a ong time already and when it does rain for a day or two, we became instantaneously happy!
She have always feel that bak kut teh is only great when it's raining, but nope. Not that night when we decided to have them on quite a hot night, before two rounds of bowling with buddies.
Somehow, eating by the side of the road makes it nicer eh. It's like very hawker style and Penang-ish. Haha.
It's beside the BB Cafe, by the road. You can drive towards Suntech Building and take a right turn once you pass the building, then you'll see it there.
Anyways, it was such a good meal under the stars, literally :)
Bak kut teh for three people please :)
He says: Look at that. This was my first time here. She brought me here saying this place serves one of the best bah kut teh! and yeah.. it could be one of the best.. The bah kut teh essence is really kao!
She says: First spoonful of soup into my mouth and I immediately smiled from one ear to the other. The taste and smell of herbs were strong yet not too much of it. Just ngam-ngam. Commenting on it now makes me want to have that for dinner tonight! Ahhh.
Deep fried beancurd with slices of cucumber and onion, topped with thai chilli sauce.
He says: Thumbs up for this. Could be better but it is good!
She says: The beancurd was a bit cold when served. The thai chilli sauce goes really well with the vegetables. If it was served hot, it would be best already!
