Gan: What you like to eat is mostly determined by what you eat when you were growing up. So for us, Melaka is a source of most of our culinary idiosyncracies, our likes and dislikes, and our passion for appreciating good food in general. It only makes sense for us to review some of the food we've grown up with.
Kampung Pantai Bak Kee Soup
One of Gan's favorite dishes -- Bak Kee Soup (Pork in soy sauce broth served with rice on the side). I've never eaten this dish before but according to Gan, it's good!
Gan: Another typical Hokkien dish. You coat the pork slices with tapioca flour and boil it in the soup. The tapioca coating turns into a geletine like texture. That's where I think the dish is most interesting, in the texture. Of course, the flavors with how the season the pork and the flour as well as the soup and the aromatic yam rice rounds this dish up.
