The ba ku teh 肉骨茶 (pork rib soup) here is of the herbal variant, & is served in a claypot with 2 options for sizes - $6 or $10 (prices are nett). The stall owner recommended the larger one for 2 pax, but I personally felt this wasn't enough. Then again, I'm a fairly big eater 😳

So.. Herbal ba ku teh is my favourite kind, & this soup is definitely at the top of my list. I like how it's not too soy saucey, & you can taste the herbs in it without them being overpoweringly bitter. A little sad that when I asked uncle for a refill (with compliment in tow), I was only given a scoop of soup without a smile... Oh well.

The meat was fall-off-the-bone, tender & flavourful. It is on the fatty side, but the fatty layers can be easily picked by to you & your l337 chopsticks skills.

I ordered a bowl of preserved vegetables 梅菜 ($2 nett) to share, & a bowl of white rice ($0.50 nett). They were okay, nothing outstanding nor terrible. The real star, rightfully, is the soup with the pork ribs. I can see why this stall is popular.. Definitely coming back.

Tip: This stall is right next to the famous avocado milkshake stall at the corner of Alexandra Village, which is also a wildly popular stall!

I know I’ve posted about Leon Kee’s ridiculously redolent bak kut teh before, but it’s too good not to talk about. Two massive pork ribs luxuriate in the stunningly satisfying soup that’s hearty and herbal, and they ain’t just good on a rainy day, they’re perfect 24/7.

However, another thing I’d like to talk about are those palatable pigs trotters sitting pretty in the claypot. It has been braised to piquant porcine perfection, with a superb savoriness permeating every scrap of meat, which falls off the bone effortlessly. The skin is sensually supple and leaves your lips nice and sticky as it trots its way into your stomach and your heart.

Make no mistake, Leon Kee’s pot(s) will make you very happy.

Too often disappointed by small portions of meat and monotonous soups, but never here :)

Leon Kee’s bak kut teh is more herbal than peppery, but that’s exactly why I love it. The brown, translucent broth is chock full of stellar savory flavors and heady herbal hints wafting from each and every sumptuous spoonful. The broth is rich and leans toward the heavier side despite being a clear soup. Forget chicken soup, Leon Kee’s herbal BKT is all you need even if you’re not sick.

Of course, that massive, juicy rack immersed in that luscious liquid will make many men (and women) very, VERY happy. The pork ribs are quite literally fall off the bone tender, and hours of being boiled in the smashing soup have infused every last fiber of it with all sorts of delicious, herbal and tasty flavors.

Forget boring old veggies and nuts, this soup should be classified as a soup-er food, I tell ya.

Herbal Bak Kut Teh [$5], Braised Mixed Pork [$5], Veg [$2]

Apparently this is quite famous but I feel the this soup kinda too sweet, overall still ok.

Prices are NETT.

Been patronising this place since I was a kid and glad that it's still around after all these years. Differentiating itself from the usual peppery version, the broth has the dang gui (angelica sinensis) herbal taste to it, so it delivers a strong punch of flavour with each mouthful!
