On a brilliant together with sunny Lord's Day morning time inwards Singapore, the missy together with I stepped out for a cosy girlie breakfast.. (read - likewise lazy to brand breakfast at home). 

Wanting to bring to a greater extent than or less simple, wholesome, local fare - nosotros decided to caput out to 1 of the oldest Teh (Tea) stalls known…

Tucked away inwards a niggling corner on Baghdad Street, this quaint niggling hole-in-the-wall cafe has been serving upward steaming Teh Sarabat (‘Pulled’ Milk Tea) since 1956 together with is maybe 1 of the cheapest local breakfasts you lot tin bring inwards Singapore! (I haven't yet flora anything cheaper… nosotros bring lately relocated from Bombay to Singapore together with am even together with thus converting dollars to rupees - together with thus inexpensive frequently way yay!!)

The 'No Name Teh Sarabat Stall'

The cafe didn't bring a cry board for many years (still doesn't bring one) together with was eventually christened ‘No Name Teh Sarabat Stall’. At the stall, an old, bearded exactly rattling energetic Mr Zamir Ahmad, passionately serves upward a frothy loving cup of Teh Sarabat, something he has been doing for over 40 years now.

The tea is 'tarik'ed (pulled) past times pouring it from 1 loving cup to to a greater extent than or less other together with back. Such 'pulled' tea is commonly served at Malay or Indian Muslim stalls (but maybe else where equally well) inwards Singapore. This version of tea is said to bring brought inwards past times the Indian-Muslim immigrants into the Malay Peninsula shipping service World World II.

The missy was happy to nibble on the buns alongside kaya & butter. All that for less than S$ 8 … !

The Teh Sarabat was a tad sugariness for my sense of savor exactly frothy, flavoured together with comforting - this 1 goes into my listing of comforting teas (like the practiced quondam ‘tapri chai’ from Bombay or the ones I bring written nearly before - Çay inwards Turkey together with Lebu Cha inwards Kolkata).
