Johor Road, Singapore, year 1969 - Beads of perspiration gathered at Yeo Eng Song's brow as he served another bowl of piping hot Bak Kut Teh to the table beside his pushcart stall. The Bak Kut Teh is running out, the founder of Song Fa thought. It is time to retrieve his meats from the chiller at his friend's liquor stall down the road.... And so, these were the humble beginnings of Song Fa Bak Kut Teh. Today, while we do not operate from a pushcart anymore, our iconic pushcart embodies our belief to bring you an original Bak Kut Teh dining experience where you can enjoy our fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs and flavourful, peppery, spice-infused hot broth in an elaborate 1960s' roadside dining atmosphere. It is at Song Fa, where one can relive the heritage of good old Bak Kut Teh in it's truest sense.

First Time Here and Delighted!

I haven't tried the Song Fa in Indonesia, but this was my very first time to Song Fa in Singapore so I can't compare which better, but I bet the original here much better, yes? We ordered Pork Tenderloin, Cakue, Salt Vegetables, Braised Pork Belly, and Pork Ribs. While I'm waiting for the food, I... read more

Overall, i love the food. You'd better go here at late meal-time because it' s usually full of people to eat here. The service it's okay. And you dont need much time to wait for the food to come. Love it!

They have a few restaurants in the city. I went to the original one that is opposite Clark quay. It's usually crowded in the evening. I ordered pork rib soup, fried dough, preserved vegetables, braised intestines, bean curd sheets and steam rice. Very good and delicious!

This is definitely the best Bak Kut Teh restaurant in Singapore. I really love the pepper soup of the Bak Kut Teh. Their ribs are very tasty as well. After all, they are in very good price.

Must try this Bak Kut Teh. The spare ribs are well cooked and tender. The soup is delicious and free refill. Apart from Bak Kut Teh, they also serve other pork dishes and equally delicious. We had our lunch there and apparently pack of people during that time. If you dont want to queue, come earlier or come slightly later.... More

I love the taste of Chinese herbal medicine! Soup could be refilled which I had some much rice with soup together. And it's quite healthy as not much oil used. Love the service as well staff were friendly.

Bak kut teh is good. Pork rib, tenderloin, and fish is tender. Soup is hot and peppery. Don't order their veg. I had their cai xin. I think even my mum can cook better. Although it's a bit expensive, it's still worth the try. Make sure you check your receipt because they charge you together with wet tissue without asking.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
