Bak Kut Teh

$6.00 ยท 2 Reviews

With a lot of tender pork ribs, liver, and innards, dried bean curd skins and vegetables, I found the portion to be rather generous for 2 pax. The soup was so addictive that we'd asked for an extra bowl of soup. In fact, this has been my favourite bak kut teh for the past few months!
Providing a more dignified employment opportunities for ex-offenders and ex-drug abusers has been the social mission for Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh. At its Timbre+ outlet, they stretch their mission to reach out to People with Disabilities (PWD), which I personally think is a very daring move. Jabez himself was an ex-convict and he managed to set up this business in his effort to give back to the society. It was definitely far from a smooth-sailing journey, but I could see his strong determination and I respect him so much for that.
This type of business model relies heavily on customers to ensure its sustainability in supporting its social mission. Thus, your support means a lot for them! Join FESTIVAL FOR GOOD to know more about local social enterprises. There are various activities organised for the event including workshops, performances, entertainment and various pop-up shops. In addition, Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh is one of the 8 local social enterprise eateries participating in #DineForGood. Enjoy 10% off their Dry Bak Kut Teh at their Timbre+ outlet in the month of August!

The founder of Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh, Jabez Tan, explained to us that his bak kut teh is brewed in the Malaysian style, which entails a non-peppery, slightly more herbal soup. Soon Huat's iteration is light on the herbs however, as a pleasant tang of soy sauce shines through the light yet hearty soup. The soup itself is plenty pleasant, being sumptuously savory thanks to the addition of pork ribs, secret spices, cuttlefish (!) and...pig skin!

Unlike other places, Soon Huat's teh is slightly thicker in consistency thanks to the collagen from the added pig skin, plus it has the enjoyable extra effect of being extra smooth. Also, you get an additional dimension of savoriness thanks to the cuttlefish that's been reduced in the stellar soup.

As for the all important pork ribs, they are magnificently meaty, and they're satisfactorily tender to boot. In fact, Soon Huat's portion for 2 pax, which is really reasonably priced at just $15, is plenty generous with the pork.

As a matter of fact, as Soon Huat is a social enterprise due to them hiring ex-convicts and people with disabilities (Jabez is a reformed ex-convict himself) and the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE) launching their #festivalforgood initiative throughout the month of August, you get ten percent off Soon Huat's signature Dry Bak Kut Teh at their Timbre+ outlet!

With such amazing Bak Kut Teh at such low prices, plus the chance to make a positive contribution to society, Soon Huat is the destination for exceptionally excellent bak kut teh. What're you waiting for? Get down there and indulge in a spot of stellar bak kut teh while making a positive impact on Singapore's society!
