Adored by a legion of fans both locally and overseas, this bowl of peppery Teochew-styled pork ribs soup is comforting and perfect during cooling weathers.

Since 12 November, their flagship Rangoon Road outlet has launched a Kung Fu Tea x Bak Kut Teh breakfast promotion where you get to pair their Xiao Ye Gan tea ($3.80 onwards), a blend that’s contains seven types of tea and herbs, with their signature dishes such as the Premium Bak Kut Teh with Spare Ribs ($10.50). This blend of tea is specially crafted to complement and accentuate the robust flavours of the pork broth.

Love this soup compared to their “rivals” down the road at Founder’s as it’s more peppery and flavorful in general to me. Ordered the combo set with came with pork ribs and spare ribs which was a nice mix of leaner meat and fattier meat respectively.

Also had the pig’s trotters which were rly good but was abit overpriced at $10. The soup is refillable but it always seems that the first round is the tastiest compared to all the refills.


This Malaysian bak kut teh is made with a herbal broth that has more than 10 spices blended into it. We were introduced to this version at Jia Bin Klang Bak Kut Teh, and as the name suggests, this comes all the way from Klang, Malaysia. You will be truly spoilt for choice as you can either get the Jia Bin Bak Kut Teh ($8.80/$15) that comes in the herbal broth or the dry version ($8.80). Similar to other more established pork ribs soup in Singapore, you can choose a variety of pork cuts from the ribs, stomach to intestines and pork belly in your broth. Their other signatures include the Jin Bin Spicy Pork Belly ($8.80) and Jia Bin Hua Diao Wine Chicken ($8.80). You can also order some vegetables, youtiao to go with your bak kut teh and finally wash down all the heaviness of the meal with some Chinese tea.

This dry version of pork belly is doused with light chilli spice and dark sauce, and is whipped into a very fragrant and irresistible dish. I just had to finish the entire meat with the fatty layer because it's worth it and all its tenderness just melt in your mouth.

While they call it 火爆肉 (meat with explosive spiciness??), don't be daunted for the big chilli only adds to the aroma of the dish.

Have yet to find a bakkuteh place with this much variety of meat dishes till here! We were really spoilt for choice, but this is definitely a must-have. Jiabin spicy pork belly ($8.80) plus to note, the waiting time isn't too long. This humble eatery deserves a lot of support


Now I no longer have to go to JB to get my fave herbal bakkuteh fix. I enjoyed this signature claypot klang-style bakkuteh, served piping hot and with all its ingredients (pork ribs, pork belly, taupok, intestines) oozing the strong herbal essence.

It's made out of 15 herbs and with no sugar added. The meat are very tender, especially the 三层肉. To note that the garlic goes v well too.

For $8.80, this is an extremely generous serving with free soup refills!!! I also love how it has everything I like in one pot! I will be back for this. Just a stone throw away from farrer park mrt!

👍 👍 👍

Thank you burpple and Jiabin Klang Bakkuteh for the invite and the v fun eat up


Nestled along Keppel Road, Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh offers one of the best Teochew cuisines in Singapore till late night. Here at [@yahuasg], They serve a tantalising collection of Teochew dishes that are best for casual diners, group gatherings, late night Supper!.

Ya Hua was Established way back during 1900s by Madam Gwee Peck Hua, Together with her sister, Gwee Guek Hua, Where both sisters worked tirelessly, to perfect the recipe for the finest bowl of Teochew-style Bak Kut Teh, at a stall in River Valley Road.

If you're unsure of what to order, I believe having a bowl of their Signature Prime Cut Ribs [$10] and having it along with their side dishes- salted Vegetables and You Tiao would definitely be a perfect mix!.

While it often boils down to personal preferences, the Malaysian (Klang) bak kut teh will always have a special place in my heart as that is the flavour I grew up knowing. Dark and infused with herbal aroma, Jia Le Herbal Bak Kut Teh’s rendition might be on the slightly sweeter side in my opinion but nonetheless satisfying especially on a cold day.

Not overwhelming on the herbal notes, the broth was light yet full-bodied. So if you are looking for a kick in the soup, this would be a little mild yet still perfect paired with a copious amount of steamed white rice. Inside the simmering claypot were also bean curd skin, enoki mushrooms, tau pok and pork ribs. The ribs were adequately tender and fell off the bone pretty easily.

For something heavier and more substantial, I would recommend getting the braised trotter and pork belly as well. Uber tender, the meats were steeped with rich flavours - all extremely well braised and delectable.

Snuggled in a quiet neighbourhood of West Coast Drive, near Ayer Rajah Food Centre, the stall had recently moved in after they ended a 10-year operation at Clementi. Hence, do support them in their new opening. Enjoy a one-person set meal as well as a free side dish at $6.50 by simply flashing this post to them before 23 January 2019!
