Where to Find the Best Bak Kut Teh in Singapore

Bak Kut Teh is a pork rib dish that’s cooked in either a peppery or a herbal-based broth. It is typically a Chinese (specifically Teochew) soup that is commonly found in Singapore and Malaysia. This is one of the most enjoyed and desired dishes in Singapore, especially during the rainy season. With that, here are some of the best places to get bak kut teh!

1. Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh s

Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh is one of the oldest establishments selling bak kut teh having started operations in 1978. They have set themselves apart from others by solidifying their signature flavor of a rather peppery broth. This has earned them a lot of loyal customers who can easily distinguish the taste of their bak kut teh above anyone else’s. If you prefer broth that’s hearty and almost spicy, this is the place to be.

2. Song Fa Bak Kut Teh

Another “old but gold” establishment is Song Fa Bak Kut Teh. In the late 1960’s, owner Yeo Eng Song served bowls of bak kut teh with a pushcart stall. Today, Song Fa Bak Kut Teh is already a big name in Singapore. A lot of their success comes from their humble beginnings and their willingness to deliver the genuine flavors of bak kut teh.

3. Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh

Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh is known to serve bowls of bak kut teh that gives you a taste of authentic Teochew tradition and heritage. It’s kind of hard to describe their bak kut teh (in a good way). The broth is sweet and tasty but also quite peppery with just the right kick to it. Take small sips while the broth is still hot, you’ll get a certain warmth and savory taste that way.

4. Legendary Bak Kut Teh

Legendary Bak Kut The, formerly known as Founder Bak Kut Teh, is another household name in Singapore. Their walls are adorned with pictures of local and international celebrities who have dined in the establishment. Nonetheless, Legendary Bak Kut Teh has many loyal customers, celebrity or not. The main reason should be that they serve fresh and meaty pork ribs in a clear, yet flavorful and mildly spicy broth.

5. Leon Kee Claypot

From the all those mentioned above, what set Leon Kee Claypot’s bak kut teh apart is that the broth is herbal based. Don’t get us wrong, there are still many stalls that have herbal-based bak kut the, but this one is hard to miss. Because they serve it in claypot style, you can expect the soup to still be very hot as it is served. Plus, don’t get misled by the dark broth, it actually has a vivid sweetness to it.
