2. Bakuteh:

Pork Belly Stewed in Bakuteh

This is a dish that originated in the docks. The workers tanked up on Bakuteh in the mornings so they had enough energy to lug the goods. Best when cooked with fresh pork, wash it down with some Chinese tea and you’re good to go.

The Asian Inspirations Pork belly stewed in Bakuteh is inspired from the traditional recipe. Once you’ve tried it, you’re going to keep going back asking for more.

3. Laksa:
