Your entry ticket secures you a bowl of bak kut teh is what said in your website.
I was given less than half of a half bowl with a miserable portion of rice and a not impressive yau cha kuih.
What advertised on your website, should be honored by your host.

Hi, I found the competition is unfair, as the attendees basically know who they supporting before they even try the bakuteh!
I would suggest the competition should conduct in a way where should not reveal the chefs of the bakuteh that they are tasting, for example labelling the pot as A or B rather than Singapore or Malaysia.
Therefore, I don't think the result correctly reflect what people really like to eat. I born in a place famous of Bakuteh, therefore I know the TASTE!
The Singaporean's bakuteh is abit sour, the soup taste abit gone off and very grease. I was told by the contestant, the soup was made 2 weeks ago! From my understanding that Herbal soup should not be kept over night!
