1. Bak Kut The

Bak Kut The

In simple words, it’s a kind of meat bone tea or a pork ribs soup. Today, it’s a must-have delicacy that has found room in most fancy restaurant menus and popular street side stalls but it has an ironic yet interesting fable attached to it.

Once a beggar went to a roadside noodle stall and begged for some food. The hawker, himself short on means, decided to help him anyway. He boiled some leftover pork bones, added some random spices and served it to him. This is how the tea-like pork bone soup was born. However humble, it’s a delicacy that oozes taste-tickling flavors with all the spices and the goodness of meat.
