Just Where is the Best Bak Kut Teh in Singapore?
Just where can you find the best Bak Kut Teh in Singapore?
I know opinion will be divided, and I'd like to hear you out on this one. But first, here are 2 of my favourites...
Ng Ah Sio Pork Rib Soup (Bak Kut Teh)
(pretty near to Singapore's Little India)
Often just called 'Rangoon Road Bak Kut Teh', Ng Ah Sio Pork Rib Soup is located in a ordinary, almost obscure shophouse on Rangoon Road. You'll miss it if you don't look carefully.
But once you step in, you be struck by their international customer base - Koreans, Japanese, Taiwanese, and the occasional Caucasian. Obviously, the international travel writers have sniffed out this spot! I read that even famous celebrities and dignitaries have dropped by despite their busy schedules.
So what's so special about this Bak Kut Teh in Singapore? For me, the 'power' is in their peppery soup. Allow it to work its way down your throat and feel the oomph! Then follow up with the succulent ribs.
I often order the liver-kidney-combo soup as well. This combo doesn't have the peppery flavour, but the liver and kidney slices are of the right thickness and texture. A great supplement to the ribs.
You'll also find snatches of old-world charm here. Order a pack of their Xiao Yue Gang Chinese tea. Then brew it yourself, with hot water from a charcoal-heated kettle that's placed just next to your table. Xiao Yue Gang has a hint of citrus in it, which is just perfect for washing down everything you ate earlier.
This is my favourite Bak Kut Teh in Singapore.
Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh
Unlike Ng Ah Sio's peppery soup, Leong Kee's Bak Kut Teh has a light herbal flavour. This is where I'll come whenever I feel like having something less spicy or less peppery.
I'm basically a glutton, so I'm going to give the 'thumbs up' to Leong Kee's huge portions. The big chunks of ribs are cooked till tender-soft. But they are actually hidden in the broth, and covered by generous dashes soya bean crepe and vegetables.
If you like pig's inner parts, consider ordering a pot of their innards, which are stewed to perfection in a murky soya-based broth.
So Leong Kee gets my vote too. And besides, they offer something quite different from Ng Ah Sio.
I'm sure there are other wonderful Bak Kut Teh stalls in Singapore. If you've tasted great Bak Kut Teh in Singapore, please share with us. I'd definitely like to try it too...
