Founder Bak Kut Teh 发起人肉骨茶餐馆 @ Rangoon

An impromptu gathering with the Friday Gang. Love this group. We went BKK, HCM together. Now that most have a family of their own, or busy with career, we are meeting much lesser. Nevertheless, we'd still have dinner, drinks whenever we can.

Was watsapp'ed and mobilisation starts. Dinner at Rangoon Road. Sure, let's have bak kut teh!

Founder Bak Kut Teh has many fans, evident from the photos displayed on its wall.

With two famous bak kut teh shop at Rangoon Road, diners are spoilt for choice. We ordered the set for 4 pax. Drinks are in pre-packed form though. Sour plum would be nice, but they don't have it.

Service was brisk and friendly. The side dishes came first, and then the main 'stars' of the bak kut came later.

kidney soup

The bowl of bak kut contained one premium meat and the rest normal cuts. The normal cut being more meaty, and tender with a bite. Meat dipped in dark soy chili sauce equates to yums.

Throw a couple of those deep fried fritters or 'you tiao' pieces into the soup, let it sit for a while to absorb the peppery soup, before popping one into the mouth. Shioks!

They do have a variety of dishes available, but we went for the standard ones typically eaten with the bak kut teh.

Spent about $18 per pax for the meal. The restaurant accepts cash payment only, so do bring enough.

Jewel Cafe and Bar is just nearby, so we headed there for post-meal coffee. Of course beer, or cocktail would be nice, but they don't serve it anymore. So, coffee it was.

piccolo - but it was called something else which i can't remember

Was nice catching up with the gang, and to hear all the stories about life after marriage. Our next meet up, would be at Connie's wedding in May. See ya soon.
