Delicacy that is dying out...

I was thinking of going to Beach Road the other day to spend a bit of money and give the delicious 'Herbal Bak Kut Teh' a try. However, it seems that they have wind up their shop and I have to look for a new alternative again... =.=

After you have gotten yourself a table & seat and once you have placed
your orders, the workers over here will be placing 2 baskets of chilli
on your table. Basically there's the bigger sliced chillies and the
smaller ones, or more commonly known as 'Chilli Padi'. Well, you can
go ahead and do a bit of D.I.Y too. Since there's both the light and
dark 'Soy Sauce' too, hence you can mix and match your favorite plate
of chilli.

On my 1st visit, I have gone ahead placing an order for this and a
bowl of white rice. I will skip the bowl of white rice and move on
to the main dish, which is...

'Special Claypot Bak Kut Teh'(狀元瓦煲肉骨茶)
This is indeed pretty special. For a start ingredients like 'Black
Fungus', 'Mushrooms', 'Baby Corn', 'Fried Beancurd Skin', 'Pork Ribs',
'Pork Liver', 'Pork Stomach' and also a bit of 'greens'. Just the
variety of ingredients that was given, it's already worth a big (+).
Not only it's served warm, the nutritious and tasty soup is worth
another (+). Best of all, the taste of the soup have blend into all
the ingredients nicely, which enhances the overall taste of each and
every ingredient. And here comes another good reason for big eaters
to patron this place. You can top up the pot of soup endless time.
And in fact, the taste for the top ups are as good as the initial
serving, which comes with a nice herbal taste, which is a (+). In fact
the taste of the 'Bak Kut Teh' is so good that...

I went back to the same place the following week after the 1st visit.
But rather than going for the same stuff again, I decided to place an
order for a bowl of 'Yam Rice' instead.

'Yam Rice'(芋頭飯)
The 'Yam Rice' over here are pretty good too. It comes with chunks of
'Yam' and 'dried shrimps' were also thrown in throughout the process of
making a big pot of 'Yam Rice', in order to enhance the overall taste
of the 'Yam Rice' even further. When I was digging into this bowl of
'Yam Rice', the fragrance that comes with it is a (+) too. In fact
when they open up the rice cooker that contains the 'Yam Rice',
there's this tempting smell floating in the air... Yummy. With this
delicious option around, I don't think I will be touching a bowl of
white rice again.

Here's a copy of the bill.
It can give you a better idea of the food/dishes that they are making
and preparing over here. By the way, they also have the 'Cze Char'
dishes on the menu too. So in case you are having dinner in a big
group, you can always order a few dishes and share them among yourself.

The name of this place would be 'Sin Heng Claypot Bak Koot Teh'(新興瓦煲肉骨茶).
It's located along 'Joo Chiat Road', the part that is located near
'112 Katong Shopping Mall'.
