Premium pork loin was very meaty, there were lean (and drier) portions and also fattier (and tender) portions on each piece of rib so you get to try both varieties on one slab of rib. The soup is pepper based, but not overpowered with pepper. Balance of the soup is just nice, but there are better places out there if you’re looking for a good bkt soup.

Pork trotters were really good and the sauce is herbal-based instead of a salty soy sauce stew. Added braised peanuts ($1) and you tiao ($1). Worth trying but not a place I would revisit for my bkt fix.
