Kuching: A Bak Kut Teh post for Jaso & Tristan gets a haircut!

A blog post by request from Jason, my ‘regular reader’ haha.

kaya toast

Fantastic traditional breakfast of soft boiled eggs and kaya toast. Sadly I couldn’t drink my normal kopi. Have to resist till my cough gets better.


Wheatgrass shots in Perth taste terrible, very healthy but it’s like drinking a shot of minced fresh grass. Wheatgrass  drinks in Kuching however, are refreshing and lovely. Not sure whether this rates highly on the healthy scale though.  This is Jo’s standard drink in Kuching nowadays.

tristan leg

Bad ass Tristan at the kopitiam hahahahaha.

tris news

The baby has been having a whale of time in Kuching getting spoiled by his grandparents (and aunt). My father introduced him to a new toy, newspapers! Doesn’t he look scholarly here? In actual fact he was having more fun tearing up the newspapers.


Tristan getting his first hair cut from his yee zhang! Haha, had to chronicle this moment. Tristan looks so deep in thought because we were distracting him with videos.

bak kut teh

Since this post is for Jaso, I had to put up a photo of his favourite bak kut teh. Our preferred bak kut teh stall at Bee Wee Hiong.


It’s important to know the foodie movers and shakers in town, Tristan is introduced to the bak kut teh master. This master is actually the pioneer bak kut teh maker in Kuching and introduced this wonderful pork rib soup to the cat city in 1976! He learned to make this dish when he was studying in Singapore and spent a couple of years perfecting the recipe before opening up his bak kut teh stall.


He has been featured in a few newspaper articles. See Jaso, we introduced you to the best bak kut teh in town.

pork leg rice

Coming from a family of pork butchers, the pork ingredients in the bak kut teh are always fresh and they also sell a mean pork leg rice dish. We especially love their braised ‘loh’ intestines, so clean, fresh and yummy.

The friendly bak kut teh master waves goodbye!
