Bak kut teh is a traditional Teochew dish — pork ribs in a clear peppery broth — that's very popular in Singapore and Malaysia. For Nam Dinh native Joy Le Thi Vui, it was love at first bite when she first tried the hearty comfort food in Singapore. A few years ago, Joy decided to bring the dish to Vietnam with her bak kut teh restaurant in Saigon. This is her story.
