Kota Tinggi - Bak Kut Teh @ Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh

The 2nd day of Johor Bahru food-hunting trip

The 2nd day of Johor Bahru food-hunting trip was continued with the journey heading to Kota Tinggi. During the early morning, we had headed to Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh; which located at the main road from Kota Tinggi town to Mersing to have our breakfast. We arrived there at 8.30am and the restaurant was already crowded with customers which patronize with locals and Singaporeans! Peir Gen's business friends had already arrived and had booked two tables for us. According to them, Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh still uses charcoal stoves.

The waft of herbal aroma could be smelled once the bak kut teh was served. The steaming hot bubbles popped out furiously on the herbal soup’s surface. We had eaten the bak kut teh before managing to capture it.The dark gravy of the braised pork trotter was with strong , flavorful herbal. The pork meats were very tender, soft and not too fat.

Nah. being a non-pork' spare parts lover hence I just tried bak kut teh and braised pork trotter mostly. Oh yea, the 'you tiao' was the most necessary appetizer accompanying bak kut teh. By the way, the ' you tiao' was not as crispy as I expected. According to the others,the pepper pork nerve was very tasty as the pork intestines, nerves were chewy and soft.

Overall, the breakfast was very satisfying! If want to point out the difference of bak kut teh of klang and Kota Tinggi, I would say that it will be the soup.
