Dry Bak Kut Teh

$10.00 · 18 Reviews

$11 for this dry bak kut teh.

Taste wise, it's really great. The meat is tender and comes off the bone quite easily. Tastes superb when dipped with the dark sauce that is cooked with cuttlefish (the maggie looking thing) which accentuates the taste. Goes well with rice.

Good portion but just thought the price is a bit steep especially compared to the other dishes there.

Hope to try their normal bak kut teh next time ($7.70).

Very solid version. Tender meat and lip smacking sauce which was equals parts sweet, savoury and spicy. It really was quite hot from the chili padi though so if you're not a spice lover let them know

Gf says not as good as old Street. I felt they're comparable but given the whole experience (shoddy place, queue, wait time etc) coupled with the ulu location, I don't know if I want to travel for this again. Maybe if you're in the area lol, can drop by at some weird time

Midnight supper called for Bak Kut Teh.
Wanted to have both wet and dry version, but sadly, they only left the dry.😢

Dry Bak Kut Teh($10.50)
Generous amount of succulent pork rib in spicy thick savoury creamy dark sauce over a piping hot claypot. Together with the shredded dried chewy cuttlefish and crunchy bites of okra. It a yum yum.😋 Effortless eating as the meat peeled off from the bone on its own.
.
Mustard Green Stew($1)
More of a comforting savoury dish. Not too salty and can be quite addicting.😀

Dry ba kut teh (~SGD10.50): Don’t normally eat ba kut teh out but just followed my friends to eat here today. Have personally never tried dry ba kut teh & it’s pretty good actually! The sauce is petty sweet I must say, but tasty nevertheless. I would say get both the soup & dry to share with a friend as the soup is pretty shiokz 🤩

OVERALL: 4.25/5

Probably one of the under-the-radar areas of Singapore for food, Geylang boasts quite a few popular eateries from handmade noodles to frog leg porridge, zichar and now the Malaysian style bak kut teh. If you have not tried this version yet, it is more towards the herbaceous side as you can see from the colour of the soup and the minute you sip on the broth, you can taste the depth of herbal notes. In addition to the pork ribs, you can find beancurd skin and vegetables in each claypot, which is almost a complete meal of its own. However, what stole the show (and our tastebuds) that evening would be the Dry Bak Kut Teh ($10), which we swop the pork ribs for chicken cuts and the meat is cooked in a rich and dark soya sauce, that comes bubbling in a claypot as well. As you dig through the treasure pot, you will find pieces of dried chilli, lady’s fingers and shredded dried cuttlefish, which contributed greatly to the umami-ness of the overall flavour. It can get too savoury at some point, hence, you must eat it with rice and balance it off with some of the herbal broth.

Very yummy dry bak kut teh, the sauce is really THICCC, and very fragrant (we think they add in shredded dried squid). Recommend getting it alongside the soup version as this does get pretty heavy.

I've always preferred Malaysian-style bkt, but even with that said, you should only order this if you can accept bkt without its soup. It's just pork ribs and a yummy sauce. I wish the ribs were more tender though.

“Black” version- meat was soft and I liked that we can mix anything we want in the clay pot. Youtiao was dry though, worth a miss. Still on a search for a better one besides Hong Ji.

Price: $8 onwards

My favourite herbal BKT eatery.

The dry BKT in particular is my favourite. It’s intensely flavourful and the chilli gives a shiok kick to the meat. It also comes with cuttlefish which some might feel makes the dish too salty but for me this doubles up as a snack. I would deliberately leave a few strands till the end of the meal just to leave this place with a satisfied tummy.

Whoa this was gooood. The sauce is savoury-sweet and very addictive over rice. The pork ribs are so so so tender, and it’s nice that they also include a few slices of pork belly. Loved the few pieces of ladies finger in there too. This fared better than their soup, but I think I’d still order both for variety! The youtiao was super disappointing and soft, not giving you the desired effect at all. Will definitely come back for this!
