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.

“Quick and very tasty!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

With a great atmosphere, Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, is always in high demand. There is generally a queue of people waiting to be seated which is always a good sign in Singapore. The food is simple and delicious, they are also very generous topping up the peppery soup all of the meat is served in when required. The service is quick and attentive, we loved it!

Very delicious bak kut teh with strong black pepper favour. The pork ribs are tender and you can unlimited refill the soup.

“So good.”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Go where the locals go. This is our lunch go to for Bak Kut Teh. Go early to beat the queue, and stuff your belly with this flavorful dish. The pork falls right off the bone Osso Bucco style, and the broth was flavorful and overflowing...only downside - I was hungry two hours later. Great bang for your buck in a city-state that has so many excellent dining options.
