When Akihiro Takahahsi came back for a business trip in Singapore back in 2014 he was instantly charmed by Bak Kut Teh when visited Founder Bak Kut Teh. He loved the dish so much that he opened a bak kut teh restaurant in Tokyo on 10/4.
Describing the experience of eating his first bak kut teh, the 43-year-old says, “I was fascinated by how delicious it was. The taste was impactful. At the start, bak kut teh looks like a very simple dish but in just one mouthful, you can taste pepper, garlic and the juiciness of pork meat. I became so obsessed that I went to try another bak kut teh shop.”
