I know there’s some kind of unspoken rule about how we shouldn’t get our titles longer than 7 words or something. Call me weird but long titles attract me.
Yesterday I had terrible acidic flat white. The beans were off, and the milk did not balance. It was also bloody 6 bucks. This was followed by a craving for something warm, like a bowl of hot soup maybe, so we decided to get some Bak Kut Teh nearby.
It was bloody damn awful. The soup was served almost cold, it only had a piece of pork rib, and it was almost flavourless. The You Tiao was cold, rock hard and did not soak up the soup – not that there were any flavour to begin with. The Suan Cai was far from Suan. All it was was oily vegetables. It left me so unsatisfied and pissed cause it was also EXPENSIVE HMPH.
I felt so unhappy that I just had to have something good today, and I wanted Bak Kut Teh again to satisfy my cravings. I’m SO NOT having anything less than Song Fa Bak Kut Teh.
So after a long and muddy 10km hike at macritchie (we were kinda disappointed because the tree top walk was closed), and our bellies rumbling in hunger, we rushed to the song fa Bak Kut Teh at Clarke Quay.
Thank god we didn’t have to queue for it. We sat down and got our bowls of Bak Kut Teh, you tiao, my fav soft peanuts, Suan cai, and some cool Chinese tea that came in the set like the ones in movies.
When the food came… I didn’t even bother snapchatting and went straight for the soup…. my Gosh it was nice piping hot and it tasted peppery and how Bak Kut Teh should taste like mmmmhmmmm I was like omgggggggg shiok omggggggg I love it why is it soooo gooddddddd
The Suan cai was swimming in flavour, the peanuts were so warm and soft, and the you tiao, crispy and snugly soaked up all that Bak Kut Teh goodness…. I was sooooooo happy satisfying my unsatisfied anger from yesterday. I was probably smiling as I had the pork ribs.
I could like, cry maybe. Hmm.
I think the second time I felt this way was that ramen in Japan. We were famished, had nothing to eat since 1pm (and the food sucked), we walked sooo much, rushed from place to place, got lost, pretty much froze in the cold and when our hot bowls of ramen came…
Hands down the best ramen I have ever eaten in my lyfe. I had no idea ramen could be this flavourful?!???!!?
I have issues…
