Leon Kee Pork Rib Soup

After an unproductive gym session, i need some Comfort food to make me feel good...

A braised pork large intestine starter. Nothing special, slightly over braised, in other words loses texture. But flavor wise not bad.

Braise pork trotter with Shiitake mushroom. Looking at the portion, you probably won't guess its only $4! Nicely flavoured braising liquid. The pork is tender but not overcooked till very soft. It retains some texture and the pork meaty flavour. Mushrooms were well braised and completely absorbed the braising liquid. Nice...

Looking at this makes me hungry again...

Now comes the star item on the menu, Dang Gui Bah Kut Teh (当归肉骨茶). This is not the common peppery bah kut the you will find almost island wide. The soup here is with some herb, pepper and dark soya sauce. Nice and robust broth, not a single element is overpowering. Meaning you can't really taste either one of the ingredient distinctly but the elements combines to be a very delicious broth.
