Use to come to this stall in Yu Hua at least once a week while I was working in Jurong area. It’s been 20 years since my last visit. Must say I am happy they have survived all these years.

Back then, I would have rated this as one of the top BKT places in Singapore. Today, with the rise of Ng Ah Sio, Song Fa and others, Hwa Xing is still good but not as spectacular as before.

Same peppery taste that I remembered. Same slightly bloody kidney. Same salty vegetables. Same long wait for your food to be served. So what is missing? I think branding, service and ambience.

They have to change or they will not last another 20 years.

Read a lot about this new kid in the block with authentic Malaysian Styled Claypot BKT. At this place, you can choose the cuts of pork you wish such as spare ribs or premium ribs and add liver, pig tail, intestine, bead sticks, button mushrooms, etc.

Whilst the BKT was authentic, the dish that blew us away was the Liver fried with spring onion and ginger. The liver was thick cut and very tender.

The pork trotters in vinegar with ginger was too sweet for my liking. I prefer mine more sour. Meat was tender.

Worth returning again.

Nestled in 100AM Mall, this concept created by First Gourmet (the people behind Zaffron Kitchen & Prata Wala 😎) serve both peppery & herbal bak kut teh at one stop! 👏🏻
.
Made with a combination of 12 different herbs 😍 including angelica root (dang gui), wolfberry & premium codonopsis root (dang shen) 💪🏻,  the soup is slow-brewed with pork bones, rendering a robust-tasting broth! ✔
.
Here's what we tried:
🔹️Prime Rib Bak Kut Teh ($13)
🔹️Teochew Bak Kut Teh ($7)
🔹️Lamb-Kut-Teh ($16)
.
I am a fan of the herbal rendition 💗, but if you are a fan of super peppery BKT, you will be pleased with the Teochew version! 😉 Go for their Prime Rib for a hearty chunky meal or go for their short ribs for the tender mouthfeel! 🌟 Their lamb wasn't too gamey so you can give it a try too! 👌🏻

Whichever bak kut teh you prefer, you can get both the Teochew (peppery) and Klang (herbal) versions at Friends Bak Kut Teh, a new concept of the FG Culinary Group. The pepper broth has the addition of toasted white pepper and simmered for two hours with whole garlic bulbs while the herbal one contains a combination of 12 different herbs such as angelica root, wolfberry and dang seng, and is slow-brewed with pork bones till it achieves a rich flavour. Both broths are available with premium bone-in pork ribs or short ribs, priced at $13 and $7 respectively. If you prefer a unique option with a stronger flavour, Friends Bak Kut Teh has the Lamb-Kut Teh ($16) in the menu which comes with a bone-in leg of lamb in a peppery herbal broth.

In addition to the bak kut teh, the restaurant also has a lineup of fresh seafood and zichar dishes such as the Thai-style Steamed Sea Bass ($15) with the recognizable bird’s eye chillies and chopped garlic, Salted Egg Prawn ($18) and Prawn Paste Chicken ($7.50).

From now to 26 April, diners can enjoy the Thai-styled Steamed Seabass at $8 with purchase of two bowls of bak kut teh and an all-day set for 1 pax at $12.90 which includes a bowl of bak kut teh, braised peanut, youtiao, braised salted vegetables, braised tau pok and rice.

Meat is tender

Finally, a decent spot for bak kut teh in Tanjong Pagar! They serve up both the peppery and herbal broths so you can take your pick. In fact, they have a Lamb-Kut Teh ($16) that combines both versions, for a different take on bak kut teh. Love how the meat isn't gamey but instead elevates the taste of the soup. They also have zi char classics here, really like the Thai-style Steamed Sea Bass ($15).

Got the 1-1 regular BKT meal, together with a bowl of rice ($1) and medium youtiao ($3.60). The soup is not as peppery as other BKT place we’ve been to which makes it more drinkable. The youtiao was fresh and hot too. Not bad overall.

Went with this King’s Garden Tea from the range of pots of teas available. This is a blend of oolong and green tea with chrysanthemum flowers. Enjoyed the smooth bittersweet aftertaste that complemented our peppery bak kut teh meal nicely. They leave a flask of hot water aside for you to add on as and when, but make sure not to leave the pot for too long as the bitterness gets stronger quite quickly.

Surprisingly pretty decent char siew from Song Fa! Though missing our favourite charred crust, but it was not too sweet nor fatty. Got this at their current promo of $4.99 with soup or braised dishes orders.

Rainy day comfort! I’m not really a fan of pork ribs, so always happy when there’s the option to get pork slices instead in my bak kut teh - plus it’s just so much more convenient to eat! Song Fa’s pork tenderloin soup has very tender pork and comes in a pretty generous portion. Servers were friendly and came by to top up their hot peppery soup for us regularly.

Located in Hong Lim Market a few stall away from the famous Hokkien Street Bak Kut Teh, I personally feel this one is better in flavour. It has a stronger herbal taste and their yam rice is very nice.

Pretty worth it. Rice is not included. We paid about $15 for the set and one rice. Soup is a little salty but overall still yummy.
