Delicious peppery soup...

This is one of the best bak kut teh that I have eaten. The peppery soup is so invigorating & the pork ribs so tasty. However the place is a bit cramp. They have 2 branches in this area that is near to each other. A new more comfortable branch opened recently in nearby Chinatown Point. Definitely... read more

It's located near Clarke Quay, long queue, but you can order when you are queuing, so the wait is only about 15mins on a Saturday. Of course serving is very fast too. I didn't know it's pepper soup, I was looking forward for some tea or herb taste. It still taste alright. Other small dishes like chicken feet are quite... More

@TheKuoKnows Bak Kut Teh or Meat Ribs in Soup is Singapore history in a bowl. Originally designed to be an inexpensive breakfast for labourers, it is now a sumptious meal that anyone can enjoy morning, noon or night. Song Fa's pork ribs in a peppery broth with a bowl of white rice is enough as a meal in itself. It... More

Order the "dragon back" which is really juicy and tender. The soup is unlimited supply. Forget about the veggie but the chicken feet is good too. They open early so i can do breakfast and lunch and dinner there. Definitely will go back

I write to extend my appreciation to your manager "Ah Leong" (sorry, I didn't have his official name) at New Bridge Branch. He is excellent in managing the shop with sincere manner and enthusiasm. On 25.3.2015, we go to Songfa (New Bridge) shop in a group of seven Hong Kong visiters (2 elders on wheelchair, 1 child and 4 adults).... More

So after many recommendations from work colleagues based out of Singapore, we went to Song Fa for lunch. Known for its Pork Ribs, we ordered the food while we standing in the queue to get a table. There are 2 Song Fa's couple of steps away from each other...Though the quality at both is the same (as told by the... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
