annant whispers: i drafted this post while i was still in sandakan, it somehow slipped my mind (stupid absent-minded) so now im letting it surface again 😀
it was an (then) usual outing-cum-grocery shopping sunday with sitao and friend. (sitao always brings a companion cos we have generation gap so that he has someone to speak to. it is a 1.5hours journey to town, remember? so far, we met three, mr c, mr m, and mr o)
had bah kut teh as brunch.
da very first day i touched down here (i mean sandakan), was a saturday, so sitao thought of bringing us out for brekkie da next day before picking up kiki from airport, he told us,
“get prepared by 10.30am so that we can have brekkie”
by da time we reached town, it was 12pm =.= we were famished like hungry ghosts. da next sundays, we were smarter to have light brekkie at home first.
pai guat (排骨/pork rib)
zhu yuk yun (猪肉丸/meat balls)
sam chang yuk babi yang ada lemak (三层肉/three layer fatty pork)
babi kurus (瘦肉/lean pork)
zhu zak (猪杂/intestines)
and bo lei shang choi (玻璃生菜/veggie)
10 mins later, we were served (in no particular order)
a bowl of pai guat (me <3)
a bowl of meetballs
a bowl of lean pork
a bowl of babi yang ada lemak
a bowl of zhu zak (no pic cos innards are disgusting)
a bowl of prawns (very fresh!)
and a plate of fried veggie u thought…
they served us a bowl of veggie =.=
my eyes almost popped out and my jaw almost fell on da table…
sitao said that they serve fish too, in bah kut teh soup of course! it’s sabah style to serve u bowl by bowl. or is this only happen in sandakan?
aftermath: leftover soupsss.
verdict: soup is too hot and spicy to our liking
hot and spicy due to excessive of pepper 😦
u know what i found,
peninsular’s bah kut teh: herbalish
sabah’s: pepperish =.=
