I don't know what kind of pork ribs and seasonings they use, but they taste really good. The spiciness of the pepper mixed with the strong garlic smell... Incredible taste. I ordered one of the Bak Kut Teh meal with the white rice and re-filled the soup for almost 6 times. It is THAT good.

Bakut teh is always fond by pork lovers, multi generation recipee but withstand their quality through out ages. This resto runs by family, never runs out of queues, space were very tight but I'm not afraid of being wet.. Huge fans hanging on every corners, decoration still uses old schools, maybe it was just like that from their forefathers. Serves... More

The bak kut teh here is actually good. Because the place is generally so busy eating here can be a very transactional affair - you come in, you order, food will be served promptly, you eat and you get out. I don't know about the hygiene levels though - some patrons actually leave the pork rib bones on the table... More

This place is very popular for its Bak Kut Teh. It has various grades of pork ribs to choose from. I suggest you go foot the best one as the price is only a few dollar difference. They will keep refilling your soup bases reef charge if you want. We also have the pig tail and is also very good.... More

Song Fa has been in business since 1969 and when we arrive for a much on a busy Sat there was a queue for tables which is always a sign of good food in Singapore. A new twist is as you are waiting a hostess takes your order and when you actually get to your table your food order arrives... More

Into the Singaporean culinary tradition that is bak kut teh. For initiates, it's boiled pork ribs served with a lovely peppered broth, made more substantial by rice and a (I think) very dark soy sauce. It'd be a brilliant dish in the middle of winter somewhere cold, and surprisingly great on another steamy Singapore day. The restaurant itself is nothing... More

Description
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.

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.
