S933 Teochew Style Bak Kut Teh

29th Nov 09

Along Balestier Road, there are a few BKT eateries. Recently we saw one in an air-conditioned restaurant which used to be called Au Fu Restaurant but I'm not sure whether is it newly opened. As previously this unit was a coffee shop selling BKT too. The eatery is clean, neat and spacious. They served Teochew Style BKT.

Bak Kut Teh or pork ribs soup is a very popular local Chinese delight. There are 2 version, the Teochew style soup is more clear and peppery whereas the Hokkien style is less peppery but the soup is darker color as soya sauce is added. My family prefers the Teochew style.

Bak Kut Teh (Prime Ribs - S$6.00/serving)

For S$6.00 you get 3 satisfying pieces of prime ribs which I thought was rather reasonable. The soup was peppery and flavourful. Don't forget to get free top up of soup.

Pig Kidney Soup (S$6.00)

The kidney was very fresh and no gamey smell.

Braised Small Intestine (S$6.00)

The sauce had a bitter after taste which I disliked. It's seem to be over braising it as the intestine was too soft and thin.

Preserved Vegetable (S$3.00)

My fav BKT side dish that I always must order. This was done just the way I like it.

Tong O Soup (S$2.00)

Not worth ordering, as there were only a mouthful of vegetables which was not even enough for myself.

Overall, the food was alright and prices are rather reasonable though not very cheap. If you wish to have BKT and don't wish to queue up at Founder BKT which is just few units down the road. You may want to give this a try.
