Hwa Xing Bak Kut Teh – Super Shiok Peppery Bak Kut Teh!
Hwa Xing Bak Kut Teh is one of the remaining stalls that still serve tea along with their bak kut teh (delivering the teh in bak kut teh).
There are two versions of bak kut teh — the peppery version, and the herbal version. Hwa Xing Bak Kut Teh serves the former.
Oh, the bak kut teh ($5) was peppery alright. That intense spiciness just hit me and left that tingly sensation at the back of my throat. It will either make you go “SHIOK!” or your face will scrunch up. The soup was robust, and tasted several notches better than other peppery bak kut tehs that I’ve had. I loved that the meat fell off the bone very easily.
The pig’s trotters ($6) were fatty and the meat came apart from the bone quite easily. The gravy was a tad salty in my opinion, so do eat it with rice ($0.50/bowl). If you’re fan of pig’s trotters, you should definitely try this.
You can add on mui cai ($1) if you feel like jazzing up your bak kut teh a little.
You should definitely visit Hwa Xing Bak Kut Teh if you love peppery bak kut teh. It is a gem that still honours the old school way of serving bak kut teh with a pot of tea.
