Apparently different outlet might have different standard of bkt. Luckily the soup here is good! The set was unfortunately too much for me to finish. Came with a huge basket of fried youtiao and the tau huay was not bad too.

Theirs has been labeled as the "Cantonese style" by their elderly Cantonese customers.
.
Their bak ku teh soup ($6) comes with pork ribs, tau kee, button mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, meatballs and lettuce.
.
Although the Hokkien version is also herbal, this Cantonese one has a much more distinct flavor of Chinese medicinal herbs.
.
I could taste the bitterness of the dang gui and sweetness from the wolfberries. Even the color of the soup is vastly different.

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.

Price: $5.90
Description: Chicken is tender & the soft boil egg well cook.

It has now officially reopened as KOON Signatures @ Bukit Timah. From previously only serving traditional Bak Kut Teh and its usual side dishes, the restaurant now offers a wide range of innovative Signature dishes such as Handmade Chocolate Bun, Char Siew Chicken and Black Sesame Lava Cake w/ Glutinous Rice & Gelato among others. The decor and ambience has also been completely revamped to provide a pleasant dining experience.

The biggest misconception about Koon Signatures is that it is ‘just a bak kut teh place’.
This couldn’t be more wrong, as it offers much more than just that!
My favourite dish here is in fact the Modern Braised Beef Rice ($8.90). Yummy pork belly, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and an onsen egg top a bed of rice and are drenched with braised sauce.
The Signature Platter ($16.80) is quite peculiar. You’d typically expect pork charsiew to go with roasted pork belly in a typical roast meat restaurant, but instead, Koon has come up with an ideal-for-sharing platter of Chicken Charsiew and Fried Pork Belly.
The Handmade Mushroom Pau ($6.90) is one of their signatures, and a must-try dish. The buns themselves look like huge shiitake mushrooms. But do remember to eat them while they are hot as the buns can get soggy if you leave them to cool for too long.
We also tried the Stir-Fried Qing Long ($11.90), the Superior Chicken Stew with Fish Maw ($8.90) and the Classic Ba Kut Teh ($6.50).
Ended the meal with their Black Sesame Lava Cake w/ Glutinous Rice & Gelato ($11.90), another signature of Koon’s. This was rather unique for a dessert, and we thought that the 3 elements of the dessert blended together quite well.
I was genuinely surprised by the extensive variety of dishes they serve in “just a BKT place”.
Many thanks to @koonbkt for the invite!

Smoked Duck w/ Crispy Spring Roll Skin ($6.8++)
This is the MUST ORDER in here! The smoked duck is sooo savory it's great, and the spring roll skin is super crispy. The combination of them is a bit weird but unexpectedly good! The crispy skin joined with soft chewy duck, after a few chews the smoked duck savory taste will spread in your mouth, it's definitely a must try!

Friendly and helpful staffs, great and clean restaurant.

Dough Fritters (S $1.5++, M $4++)
Crispy and springy. It's a good youtiao.

Friendly and helpful staffs, great and clean restaurant.

Pork Ribs Soup (R $7.5++, L $9.5++)
The pork is sooo soft. We could easily eat it with our chopsticks as it breaks easily. We could pull the meat from the bones easily and cleanly as well. But the soup is sooo salty, and the after taste also tastes too sweet. I usually enjoy bakkut soup so much I could ask for refill 3-5 times, this time not so much. For me the main point of bakkutteh is the soup, so it's a total letdown.

Friendly and helpful staffs, great and clean restaurant.

If you like peppery (as opposed to herbal) bak kut teh, this is one of the best places in town. Popular with Asian tourists, who come by bus loads to savour this delicacy. In addition to the signature pork ribs, they also have pork kidney, large and small pork intestines, chicken feet, tofu skin, pork belly. The wait can be up to an hour, in spite of them having two outlets almost next door to each other. Occasionally, you see a hardcore Caucasian customer (more typically adventurous backpacker types rather than conservative bankers of lawyers), but rarely South Asian ones and almost never Middle Eastern ones.
