Returned to my favourite BKT stall since I had the first half of the day off. Ordered the Premium Loin Ribs, the regular Pork Ribs (large bowl), and Kidney (regular bowl). The meat is so tender, it just peels off the bones! The kidney was just right - soft and yet with a bit to it.

Definitely good quality meats used and excellent cooking method!
Although, I noted that there was just one additional pork rib in today’s ’Large’ vs the ‘Regular’ that I ordered previously.

Took the chance that it’s 1/2 day today (New Year’s Eve) to try both the pork ribs and premium loin ribs.

Wow! Didn’t know it was significantly different in terms of proportion of the ribs! Both were tender, except that the premium loin ribs meat was drier while the pork ribs was juicer and softer. I understand from a friend it’s because the bigger ribs are too big and hence are not soaked in the soup, while the pork ribs are merged inside the pot of soup and boiled together.

Now that I’ve tried Rong Hua’s BKT, I’d say this is my favourite (beating my previously favourite Ya Hua BKT). 👍😋

Came here to try their BKT in person. I had the basic typical pork ribs and then I wouldn’t give the Pig Tail a miss! So one bowl each, regular portion (they have an option to order large).

Meat was tender and fell off the bones. Soup was just right, not overly peppery. I’d definitely revisit them again!

Was in the vicinity, and decided to try this BKT’s braised pig trotter. I like how the Trotter was substantial for the Regular portion, with skin and meat all beautifully intact, yet peels off the bones once you take a bite 👍

Was craving for the gelatinous pig trotter early in the morning and found out this stall usually opens early!
I ordered this via delivery, and as always I requested to omit the sauce/gravy. The staff called to verify my special request - thumbs up for this service!

I liked that they had the Trotter cut up so nicely and neatly! So, it was easy to eat! And look at that braised skin! The meat and skin was cooked well and tender. Will reorder and/or visit the stall again! 👍😋

Since the positive experience with their food and service, I ordered the braised Pork Knuckle again. This time, I decided to try their Braised Pig Skin. The pig skin was ok, very soft and smooth, and I liked that they followed the instructions given - to omit the sauce/gravy. Today’s Pig Knuckle was very collagenous! 😋

I love that Tuan Yuan has the uncommon items such as the Pig Knuckle, Cartilage and Skin on their menu. I ordered this via delivery and requested that they omit the sauce/gravy. I was impressed that a staff from their stall actually called to verify on my special instructions since this dish usually is cooked with sauce and served as such. And so voila, this was delivered as per requested. The food was still warm despite without the sauce/gravy. The meat and skin was tender and moist. Plus, the Trotters had sufficient amount of meat and tendon, unlike other BKT stalls I’ve tried where, it was very much skin and bones. In addition, the overall portion of Trotter was generous (again vs other BKT stalls vis-a-vis price charged).
👍👍 👍

Came here specially to try their BKT and Pig Trotter.
The pork ribs meat was real tender. The plate of Pig Trotter was collagen-rich - lots of collagen with some meat, which is very much what I’d like to have! To thumbs up to that! Very satisfied with both dishes 👍

Came here planning to have their Dry Pork Knuckle but was disappointed to find out it wasn’t on their menu at this outlet. Instead, spotted a new item at this outlet’s menu - Roasted Pork Belly. So, ordered the usual Pork Ribs BKT and the Roasted Pork Belly.

The Pork Ribs BKT was the usual. The crackling of the Roasted Pork Belly was very crisp, except there’s an unusual taste/flavour - nothing I’ve ever tasted in other Roasted Pork Belly. It seems to have some coffee flavour? Which I found odd to be mixed with the Roasted Pork Belly. So, Unlikely to order this Roasted Pork Belly again in future.

Walked passed a coffeeshop at Balestier and saw the sign that 333 BKT is now open. I asked the younger guy and he said they have relocated and this is their new location, which is at 567 Balestier Road.

Tried their pork ribs soup and pig’s trotter. The was tender and smooth, with some good fats. They cut that pig’s trotter before serving so it’s easier for customer to eat. The trotter was soft and the skin melts in your mouth.
