Hock Kee Lorong 8 Bak Kut Teh (福记八巷肉骨茶) @ Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Food Centre

This stall at the refurbished Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Food Centre is run by an old lady alone. When I was there for dinner, there was already a queue form at the stall.

The pork rib was tender and came off the bone easily. Unfortunately the soup was lacklustre. I could not get the peppery kick I was looking for.

Bak Kut Teh 3.8/5

I got a shock when the lady boss picked up a gigantic braised pig leg from one of the pot. I am not joking, it was huge! Handling the gigantic pig leg like a season baseball batter, the lady boss used a scissors to cut the ordered portion accordingly.

The skin was the highlight. Tender and soft. However the meat was a bit dry.

    The elderly lady has 2 types of soup. Peppery and tea based. Could you have tried the latter instead?

    1. No I have not tried the tea based soup. In fact I am not aware of it. If I have the time, I should go back and try.
