My dad had told me previously that you could refill the soup for this Bak Kut Teh and was all thumbs-up about it! After procrastinating for so long, I decided to check it out myself.The location of this mysterious Bak Kut Teh was really secluded! From Marsiling lane, you have to walk all the way in and bypass the 1st coffeeshop (almost thought the mysterious dish was non-existent!). When you get there, you'll know u're in for a good thing!

My dad had told me previously that you could refill the soup for this Bak Kut Teh and was all thumbs-up about it! After procrastinating for so long, I decided to check it out myself.

The location of this mysterious Bak Kut Teh was really secluded! From Marsiling lane, you have to walk all the way in and bypass the 1st coffeeshop (almost thought the mysterious dish was non-existent!). When you get there, you'll know u're in for a good thing! Cos' almost every table has ordered from the Bak Kut Teh stall (take note of the claypots!).

I went straight for my order, and I was served very quickly. On first look, it looks pleasant since I can see greens - lettuce and a few pieces of Taupok (so much for being estatic in my previous review on seeing 1 piece of Taupok in the soup!). I tasted the soup first, and it was ordinary (yes, anti-climax right?). The dark sauce with chilli padi looked good, so I dipped the rib in it and tasted it. It was so good!!! A tinge of bitterness from the chilli padi seeds, another spoonful of soup and there you go! The soup tasted SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!! So, now I know! All these must go together - soup, rib, sauce and whoala! Hell of a Pork Rib Soup!!! And best part of it all, you could RE-FILL the soup!!!!!!!! How many stalls allows this nowadays?!?! And another interesting ingredient in the soup - chopped button mushrooms! I love mushrooms!!!

I ordered a side dish too - Preserved vegetables. Surprisingly, this was a sweet dish. A twist to the rich taste of Bak Kut Teh!

Just a word of advice, if you're visiting this place, try and get a seat outside the coffeeshop. I believe location was a factor cos' I was drenched in sweat after dinner (I sat inside).
