So my friend was craving to eat liver .. so on the way to sending her home, we decided in the name of being spontaneous, to go try this bah kuet teh.
She mentioned that its a place that shes been patronizing since young, thus she really knows the people there. Claypots! Must be like their signature style ..! interesting because most of the bah kuet teh that I have eaten doesn’t seem to come in this style .. so of course, left ther ordering to the familiar one 🙂
Herbal Bah Kuet Teh with Liver and Stomach
Salted Vegtables "cai bueh"
you zhar kueh
we were too stuffed from all the junk we have been (ok more I have been) eating from a friend’s house nearby .. ahahah and personally, I don’t really like the herbal based kinda bah kuet teh ..
Glad my friend satisfied her craving! She also mentioned how she have friends living in the west that would drive down specially to eat this stall of bah kuet teh!
Verdict: 1/2 of us will return! I wont come back but to all the people who like herbal bah kuet teh base, do give this place a shot!

we graciously got invited by my mum’s friend to her birthday celebration at Private Affairs 🙂 I must say we went in with an empty stomach, and left rolling out of the restaurant. We had the Buffet Brunch and it was awesome!!!
My favourite was the Eggs Benedict! I loved how he charred the Hollandaise sauce. His wagyu Beef Burger as well – just awesome the truffle mayo! Just I think I couldnt really enjoy it since I was so stuffed. My mum’s friend was very well acquainted with the main chef, so we also ended up getting alot of freebies and things not on the menu.
I will let the pictures do the talking
