The soup taste was tasty. The pork rib is tender not very hard. The price was suitable for the enviroment they provide.

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

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.
