Song Fa Bah Kut Teh

Last Saturday, we had Bah Kut Teh for brunch. I think this is my third visit to Song Fa Bah Kut Teh, but it's my first visit to this unit. The previous two trips was to the unit at the corner, two doors down. We kinda prefer dining here as there is aircon. haha
Song Fa Bak Kut Teh – a name that has become etched in the minds of many Singaporeans since 1969. As a young man, founder Mr. Yeo Eng Song diligently worked as an assistant in a stall selling the traditional Teochew dish, acquiring valuable skills. Equipped with an enterprising spirit and a deep-rooted appreciation for Bak Kut Teh, Mr. Yeo Eng Song subsequently established the original Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at Victoria Street. He also innovated several side dishes to complement the peppery, aromatic soup. Today, this popular yet authentic dish has attained remarkable results, and Song Fa has no doubt earned its prominent place in the local food scene.

When we reached, there was not many people, around three tables of patrons including us. But as the time nears 12 noon, around 11.45am, there were more people. Mostly tourists. A huge group of tourists occupied the two long Reserved table at the back. In front of us, the two ladies seems to be from Taiwan, and the two ladies next to us are from Japan. Cool... I didn't realise Song Fa Bah Kut Teh is such a hot place for tourists =P

We ordered almost the same previously.
  • Pork Ribs Soup 排骨肉骨茶 [$6.50] - Small
  • Braised Pig's Trotter 卤猪脚 [$6.00] - Small
  • Groundnuts 土豆 [$2.20]
  • Dough Fritter 油条 [$1.00]
  • Plain Rice [$0.60 each]
  • Iced Water [$0.30]
  • Iced Chinese Teabag tea [$1.00]
  • Wet Tissue [$0.20 each]

Like the taste overall. The pork ribs is easy to eat, came off the bone easily. The pig's trotter is soft and tender, I don't really feel sinful eating it. It taste nicer to dip the youtiao into the soup. The taiwanese lady was asking the waiter on how to eat the youtiao.

I am happy that they refill our bah kut teh soup. I happen to go to one, the lady said that we ordered small portion, no refill... And the soup was like so little...

Do remember that the place is not opened on Mondays. Pork is not available in the market as the resource is in the process of being imported.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

臺鐵便當 Railway Bento Hubby's one of the must eat whenever we are …

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
