Best Bak ku teh in Singapore?

Post by bak ku teh » Wed, 17 May 2006 1:31 pm

My boyfriend is a big fan of Bak ku teh and I would like to surprise him with a "romantic" dinner at a pork ribs soup eating house. I will make it romantic, all I need is to know a nice place and good food. Thanks so much for your help :wink:

Romantic pork rib soup? I'll manfully refrain from making any jokes about porking or lip-smackingly tasty bones here...

Anyway, some favorites:

Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha, 7 Keppel Rd #01-05/07 PSA Tanjong Pagar Complex. Popular bak kut teh specialist serving light, peppery Teochew-style pork rib soup. At the edge of the Port of Singapore, near the KTM railway station. Figure on $10 for two, closed Mondays.

Joo Siah Bak Kut Teh, Blk 347 Jurong East Ave 1 #01-221 (MRT Chinese Garden). One of Singapore's best-known joints for bak kut teh. Two bowls, rice and a serve of mui choy veggies will set you back S$9.10; add in S$0.50 for some you tiow fritters from the shop next door to dip in your soup. Open from Tuesday to Saturday 8 AM to 8 PM, and to 3 PM only on Sunday.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live the questions now... Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live... into the answer ~Rainer Maria Rilke~

I heard that the on along old Havelock Road (near Block 29), the one with the yellow signboard is quite good, air-conditioned. A bit pricey though. I've not tried it so maybe you can tell if it's any good if you decide to go there.

yea.. i been to tat place b4. but i think its zion rd, instead of heverlock rd..
its behind the shell petrol station.

i reckon it taste better than the ones at balestier. although their service abit bad n their staff kinda rude at times.. but its still worth it..

and yes, its slighty cost more.. maybe cuz its air-condition..
