If you wonder why there is a long line at the steps of this restaurant daily and nightly, and if you wonder why so many photographs of celebrities grace the wall of this simple little eatery, well then I suggest you give it a try.I have been to Founder Bak Kut Teh many times, and have tried a lot of other decidedly famous ones over the years as well - but this still reigns as one of my top favorites. That is despite the queue and hurried service. Anyway, tonight the Beau and I grac...

BKT

Total bill amounted to $46+. We had fried omelette, tau kee, ngoh hiang, pig trotters and bak kut teh. Their side dishes were not bad. The pig trotters (smallest portion) was quite a big portion for 1 pax and there were lots of meat and collagen in it. The bak kut teh soup was peppery but I prefer Ng Ah Sio. Their bak kut was not very tender and meat did not fall off the bone easily too. Overall, it is worth a try.

Bkt

This bak kut teh costs $7.50 for the normal version and a bowl of rice. It consisted of 4 pieces of pork bones which was rather meaty and tender. The bak kut teh soup was slightly salty and very spicy. The flavour of the soup was quite nice and had a rich BAk kut teh taste. Soup was quite addictive and there are free refills! If you love spicy bak kut teh, try this you'll like it.

The Food I ordered bak kut teh with normal ribs ($6), you tiao ($1.50), pig trotters ($6) and preserved vegetables ($3). The ribs was soft, tender and the meat easily detached from the bones.The soup was clear and peppery taste with strong flavour of pork broth without the over powering taste of the pepper hence very nice and tasty. Lastly for the pig trotters, the portion is very huge with decent amount of meat, fats and skin and was super tender,super soft,yet it ...

If not for the pig trotters, I don't think I will be back to this Bak Kut Teh shop so fast. Since the place open till quite late even during a weekday night, we have no choice but to head over for supper (since my friend is craving for something soupy). I ordered a pig trotter all to myself and thankfully the taste reminds as the last time I visited. The 'fats' (full of collagen) basically melts in your mouth and doesn't have the "foul smell". The lean meat is tender and...

Disappointed by the drop of standard compare to my previous visit which was more than 6 months ago. Despite the many celebrities photos hanging all around the shop, I guess there's really nothing much to shout out about the food here, except for their pig trotters in black sauce. The soup tasted so peppery and salty, zero taste of the ribs or herbs and I feel like I am drinking just pepper soy sauce soup. The pork ribs (I chose to have the long pork ribs) is tough and chewy, the meat ...

In my ideal world, I thought this would be the perfect late night comfort food. I mean, even Chow Yun Fatt loves it. Or so the papers say. Go for the long ribs. $8. Go ahead. Indulge yourself a little. But I'm hardly a fan of pork ribs. I just wanted soup! Beancurd sheets smile Beancurd Puffs So all these side dishes were good. Then what was my issue with Founder? The soup! Oh my. sad The soup eeez too salty! Imagine the salt overpowering pepper. I couldn't ...

As a pork hunter, Bak Kut Teh is one of my favourite food. In Singapore, Bak Kut Teh is normally cooked in pepper-tasted soup, unlike Malaysia, most of the Bak Kut Teh soups are herbal-based. Along the Balestier Road, Founder Bak Kut Teh is the best for me. The place is so famous until we actually queued up 30 minutes for a table for two persons by the road side. Indeed, walls inside the restaurant are filled with the numerous photographs of famous artist...

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...
