Bak Kut Teh ($5 per serving), Rice ($0.50)
It was a gathering of co-workers at the Hainanese Village Centre in Hougang; taste of food was the last thing on my mind as this may be our last meeting in a long time to come. And everyone was hungry by 1pm. Many of the stalls were sold out. We were left with a preferred choice for Bak Kut Teh - which also had most of their items gone.
Formerly from the Seletar Hills Market & Food Centre, Nam Hoe serves a strange rendition of the soup. It tastes herbal like the Hokkien version of the Bak Kut Teh, yet peppery and hot at the same time. Maybe this gives you the best of both worlds, if you don't mind.
Serving size was generous and the meat was fresh and tender. Never a bad lunch decision drove by desperation.
