During my short layover in Singapore, this was just 2 minutes walk away from my hostel. The pork rib soup has a white pepper base. Meat is tender. It went well with a little bit of the sweet sauce that is black. It is above average. However, avoid dinner time as the queue starts to build up. As I was... More

Recommended to visit this restaurant by a friend. Took a taxi to the restaurant though it is actually located at the corner across the road from Clark Quay MRT station. There was already a queue of a few people when we arrived. The restaurant has a Chinese style fitting with black wood table and square stool. The store wanted the... More

Bak Kut Teh is one of the Chinese famous pork ribs soup. The ribs was are tender and the peppery taste soup was delicious. The soup have to drink when its really hot. There are also other good stuff like braised pork trotter and pork intestine (try it and you will loved it). Authentic yet fabulous.

Well, the bak kut teh soup itself was somewhat a letdown. It didn't taste like bak kut teh I used to which is stronger in herbs. But otherwise, everything else was great. The ribs were juicy and fish was good. Service was fast. Good price for a proper meal in Singapore and I went more than once.

Bak Kut Teh is a traditional Singaporean (and Malaysian) Chinese food normally served in Hawker Centre or traditional food centre without air-condition. Thus, until around 10 years ago, you must be prepared to sweat it out if you want to try this traditional food. However, restaurant such as Song Fa and Wong Ah Sio have open up another dimension to... More

Since this is Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, that means they specialize in bak kut teh. They have many choices in their menu, but when I received my food, I was completely let down. The bak kut teh dishes didn't taste anything like it. Meaning, I didn't taste the herbs of bak kut teh at all, unless you consider a... More
