Pork Meat Soup (Bak Kee) served with yam rice
Pork meat soup features slices of pork belly, flour dipped thin slices of meat and various offal-y bits in a herbal rich broth accompanied with diner's choice of plain rice or yam rice. Yam rice is a good choice though- Yam was indistinct in the rice, but you wouldn't miss it. Rice texture was perfect, fluffy and satisfying and absolutely blends well with the thick, inky aromatic soup.
