A favourite of many a Singaporean, bak kut teh has made it to Tokyo in the form of this specialist eatery near Akasaka Station. For the uninitiated, bak kut teh is a heavenly mix of pork on the bone simmered in a broth with ample amounts of garlic and a whole host of medicinal herbs and spices, served with a strong cuppa of the same tea that the dish is usually solved with. The owner of this particular joint was rather enamoured with the entire bowl and thus went to Singapore multiple times to uncover the mystery behind creating a fabulous-tasting bak kut teh; after many years, he finally managed to conjure up a version of his own good enough to sell. Free of additives and seasoned with a spice mix made by the owner, it's surely an original version. The usual rice and fried breadsticks are of course available too, so you'll be able to jazz up your meal exactly to your liking.
