Bah Kut Teh is believed to have originated some where or somehow or someone. The widespread of this dish was long ago brought into Singapore about by early immigrants. Our variant of BKT is that of the iconic Singapore style, combining the sweetness of the pork, and the combination of garlic and white peppercorn, giving it the right balance of oomph in flavours.
Paired with rice, you tiao, chopped chilli padi with dark soy sauce, this is one dish that can be taken morning, afternoon, and night!
