Today I'm going to recommend to you this famous Bak Kut Teh at Balestier!
TADA! It's the Founder Bak Kut Teh aka 發起人肉骨茶!!
So, went for some last minute Christmas shopping, and late night shopping for daily necessities at Mustafa.
After a long day of weekend shopping, we just hope for a bowl of sizzling hot soup, so we were cracking our heads where to head for supper!
On the way, we passed by this Founder Bak Kut Teh shop, which really attracted me on the first sight. What's special is that, their whole shop wallpaper is full of photos! Photos with famous celebrities all over the world! (Yes, I mean the four walls. )
Okay, so here comes the food!
Bak Kut Teh Ribs.
The Bak Kut Teh ribs! (My fave!)
$8 - One size only.
Bak Kut Teh.
The ermmm ... also Bak Kut Teh, but different parts of meat.
$6 - One size only.
Complimentary with Bak Kut Teh.
Mixed pork kidney, liver and fen chang.
Mixed pork kidney, liver & intestines soup.
YUMMY, no smelly smell.
The braised pork trotters!
Available in big and small.
And the salted vegetables!
The food is sincerely nice, not absolutely fabulous, but still worth 4/5 thumbs up!
The first two bowl of soups served were warm, not sizzling hot, which is not what I expected as Bak Kut Teh should be served hot instead of warm.
However, the third bowl of Bak Kut Teh which we ended up ordering again, is sizzling hot and was more up to what I expected at first.
But overall, the heat has not affected much of it's taste.
Furthermore, the you tiao is the best part!
Imagine that crispy you tiao, being throughly soaked inside the bak kut teh, and the soup just burst in your mouth. SHIOK!
The braised pork trotters were not really their signature dishes, so it's actually tasting quite normal.
It's like you can go outside and get similar tasting braised sauce.
For the salted vegetables, it's actually quite up to my liking. Not too sweet, not too salty. Just the right portion, the right taste, the right munchy-ness.
Overall, we got three bowls of bak kut teh, one bowl of mixed pork intestines, one bowl of braised pork trotters, one plate of salted vegetables & drinks at total $48 (inclusive of GST, no service charge).
Personally I find the price reasonably priced for the yummy food, so TRY IT!
It's located at 347 Balestier Road, #01-347.
Confirm no regrets!
So, that's all for today! GOOD NIGHT Open ricers! KAN FAI LO!
