Pepper Bak Kut Teh@SekMeChoy restaurant

First, a little bit of background info on SekMeChoy, from its Facebook page:

SekMeChoy’s Bak Kut Teh has had a history of more than 20 years, it is one of the first shops in the whole of Malaysia to start making Pepper Bak Kut Teh. In 2006, it was chosen as one of the “Top 20 National Kings of Bak Kut Teh”.

SekMeChoy's signature dish - Pepper bak kut teh. RM11 per pax. I ordered mine with everything - ribs, innards, tau pok (bean curd puff), pig tripe - in it!

It was really different from any other herbal bak kut teh I have tried. Distinctively peppery and flavorful.

Vegetable Rice, RM2.00. A little pricey but really good! You can just eat this on its own! In fact, I think it would be better that way to fully enjoy this flavorful bowl of rice with lots of goodies in it - mustard greens, fragrant deep fried shallot, dried shrimps, pork.

Besides bak kut teh, SekMeChoy also serves a few other dishes like vinegar pork, braised ginger duck, tilapia in special sauce, stewed pork with mui choy (sweet preserved vegetable).

I was there on a week day at around 1 pm. Wasn't very busy. My order arrived within ten minutes or less.
