Back to my last weekend retreat, we patronised the popular Kota Tinggi's Bak Kut Teh again on a Sunday morning after my church service. The service started at 8am which means I needed to wake up at 7am on a lazy Sunday morning and though I can 'tahan' the service for an hour, the sermon was prolong to 10am and I almost felt asleep.... LOL Luckily, I still managed to drive for 45 mins to Kota Tinggi later. We were quite late around 11am+ and the crowds were building up. Some of the dishes were sold out and it's so difficult to find a table. It was a long wait before we were served and the soup seems to be too 'kao' (condensed) where it was slightly bitter. In my last trip, where we were early, the soup was just nice and thick enough. However, this time round, I guess the soup was finishing soon and it was slightly bitter due to over-brewed. It's still good and I guess some folks love the 'herbal-bitterness' taste.
|Look at the crowd , some were still waiting to be seated.|
|Tough finding a parking lot!|
|Got served by some nice chinese tea in 'pu-erh'|
|Claypot fried tofu - Very nice , the soup were same as the BKT|
|Somehow I love this the most that day, a very delicious otak-otak|
|The 'mei chai' also not bad... very soft.|
|And, here's the main dish, their famous BKT.|
