22 Dragon City Bak Kut Teh, Kepong

Bah Kut Teh (BKT), a delicious pork soup cooked for hours in Chinese herbs and spices, is the stuff that warms the body and makes you feel good on a chilly day.

It is my comfort food and I have been having lots of it lately. My husband knows of my love affair with BKT. If it's mentioned as a lunch 'suggestion', it will most likely be our meal of the day. I'm grinning as I type this.  

We popped into a BKT restaurant in Kepong impromptu one evening. Besides BKT, we ordered a soy sauce pork belly claypot dish, lettuce greens and chinese crullers.

The yummy food:

I was wearing a bright yellow tee. Coincidentally, yellow was the theme of this restaurant too so, I blended right in with the waiters! Hubs kept teasing me about it.

I enjoyed the food and the friendliness of the staff. They were a jovial lot.

To end, should you happen to wear a shirt and colour similar to that of the waiters of the restaurant that you intend to have your meal at, would you shy away from walking in and choose to eat elsewhere instead?

  1. I love BKT but I can't take those with strong herbal soup. Will feel dizzy and feeling sick if I do.

    So something mild for me. I will go for the soft bone, pork belly and rib parts. ;)
