Still The Outlet I Head To When The Craving Strikes Just because a brand has several branches, it doesn’t mean that all are equally good. So for example when it comes to “Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh”, I for one, prefer to visit the outlet on Rangoon Road. Besides the pleasant laidback ambience of the standalone eatery, it has a little station for me to help myself to as much raw chopped garlic, and big and small fresh cut red chillies as I like. It may be a small thing but it matters a lot to me because those condiments make all the difference to my enjoyment of their “bak kut teh”. In addition, I feel that operations here run smoothly and service is good. All of which contributes to a satisfying meal.
Peppery Teochew Style Bak Kut Teh As a Teochew, I always adore and much prefer the peppery Teochew style Bak Kut Teh compared to its cousin, the herbal Hokkien style Bak Kut Teh. Delicious is an understatement for one of Singapore’s best Bak Kut Teh. Everything was very balanced in terms of seasoning and in my humble opinion, other more familiar Bak Kut Teh brands out there pale in comparison to Ng Ah Sio, simply for its taste. Dip the you tiao into this peppery pool of goodness, and eat the loin ribs ($11.03) with your hands for maximum pleasure. What is your favourite Bak Kut Teh? 208 Rangoon Rd, Hong Building, Singapore 218453
Average BKT Pretty average BKT. Spareribs portion is small with only 2 pieces. Meat was tender tho. Preserved veg tastes spoilt. First serving of soup wasn’t too bad but refills were just pepper water.

Comfort Food for Rainy Days The heibihiam (dried spicy shrimp), a dish not seen at every Teochew porridge store. It was fragrant with a slight spicy kick, and went very well with the porridge. Read more:
A rainy ☔ week calls for some simple and soothing Teochew porridge. What are some of your must-orders? 😋 This is our go-to place whenever we crave for something sumptuous yet easy-on-the-wallet! Love how we are able to choose from a plethora of side dishes, and this spread amounted to only $14. What is so alluring about Teochew porridge is the robust flavours of the dishes, juxtaposed with the piping hot plain congee. Each mouthful warmed us from the inside out! Although we felt that no particular item stood out out from this spread, it is the ultimate culmination of everything on our bowls that makes the entire experience so delectable and tantalising. The ANTicipated scale ⚖ 👅Flavour: 8 ants 💰Value: 9 ants 📍Convenience: 8.5 ants
Teochew Porridge Forget about Lola’s Cafe and come here for a more hearty meal instead. This teochew porridge is one of my family’s favourites. Some must orders: the lu rou (braised pork belly) - one of the softest, melt-in-your-mouth meats EVER, the duck, and surprisingly, the tofu in the bottom right of this photo. It has a slightly crispy “tau gwa” like skin, but the tofu inside is the silken type and it’s amazing with the slightly sweet sauce around it. My parents also love the otah because it has bigger fish chunks in it than normal.
