Served in earthen claypot cradled with porridge that was cooked for at least 45 minutes under high pressure cooker, every grain of rice has disintegrated properly yet still retaining some of the rice grain texture instead of just being pure watery.

This process of porridge cooking was separated from the cooking of Bak Kut Teh soup which includes the use of premium white pepper. Minced Meat with Meat Ball porridge was naturally flavoured and spiced then. With the used of anchovies, the porridge was sweetened. Meat Ball was bouncy and friendly to the jaws. Since I'm a minced meat lover, it would be great to have an increased portion on that.

The color of the tea was eye catching as time passed, from the faint orange red into beautiful pink. Diffusion took place under the constant heat from the candle which gave the Tea more powerful flavour from the assorted fruit and flower. It stimulates the appetite and till the point we asked if they are for sale. Unfortunately, not.

Preparation method for porridge is similar to minced meat with meat ball porridge, just that the ingredients was pork ribs instead. Porridge had more water content as compared to the earlier pot. A good point to note was that the meat was thoroughly cooked and fell off from the bone easily.

The Pork Ribs Soup, though belongs to the same genre but was different from the porridge we had. They were cooked to simmer for at least 3 hours to obtain its flavour. Soup was generally refillable with attentive service from the staff.

Pig Organ Soup has its soup base similar to pork ribs soup and served under the burning fire, The peppery concoction includes, lean meat, liver, intestines and you can even get to taste the garlicky flavour in the soup! One good point to take note is that, if you want to enjoy the tenderness of liver, don't have it over the flame for a long time.

So they say Soya Milk and You Tiao has never been apart but I guess I can't have Bak Kut Teh without You Tiao too as I will feel incomplete. Just dipped these non greasy cut Fried Dough aka "You Tiao" into the bowl of Bak Kut Teh soup.

Since the Ampang Yong Tau Foo comes in 3 sizes, we had the medium portion which is good enough for a table of 6 pax. Though it may be a common dish, every item was deep fried into crispiness and drenched using their homemade sauce.

Having too much of pork, it was good that we have Dry Bak Kut Teh with Chicken Cubes. The selling point was not only its chicken cubes but also its shredded cuttlefish that gave a strong aromatic hit once it landed onto our table. Sauces used in the dish includes dark and black sauce. If you dont know, this dish also consist of Bak Kut Teh Soup Base. Dry Bak Kut Teh is also available with Pork Ribs too.

Some called it the 4 heavenly king! The original creation of this assorted vegetables in Sambal sauce is from Malaysia and mixed vegetables like long beans, brinja, ladies fingers and sweet peas were stirred fried together with minced meat, dried fish and right amount of sambal sauce without being too overpowering.

Overall, A-One Bak Kut Teh is a good place where you can enjoy Singapore iconic dishes. In such a strategic location where business parks and hotels are in the surroundings, it gives foreigner a feel of how our local dishes taste like.

Having been to most their claypot houses in Singapore, I would say their meals are fulfilling and close to a heart of Singaporean.

This is a media tasting invitation.

A-One, famous for their claypot scallop porridge, has started their first A-One Bak Kut Teh at The Star Vista. Combining the essence of bak kut teh into their smooth textured porridge, its no surprise they brand themselves as the first in Singapore to offer Claypot Bak Kut Teh porridge.

On top of this, they offer various selection of bak kut teh soup and a number of other items like braised and stir fried dishes. As for this food tasting, we were served 1 or 2 items from different category in the menu.

First on the table, of course is non other than their bak kut teh porridge.

Minced Meat with Meat Ball Porridge (S$9.90)
To achieve the taste of bak kut teh, they uses premium white pepper to derive the stock before combining with pearl rice and simmered in high pressure cooker for 45mins. This is the reason why the peppery flavour is so prominent.

Pork Ribs Soup (S$10.90)
A total different soup base from the one used in preparing the porridge but the one similarity got to be the fiery peppery flavour. Nonetheless, the pork ribs were rather tender and to my surprise the soup taste less pepperish when cooled down.

Braised Platter (S$14.90)
Includes items like pork, beancurd skin, beancurd puffs, eggs and peanuts. This dish definitely reminds me of kway chap. Slight disappointment as the pork are not tender enough and other than the peanuts, the rest seems to have not been braised long enough with the gravy making it a little lacking the braised feel.

Ampang Yong Tau Foo (Medium - S$14.90)
Comes in small (S$9.90) and large (S$18.90) options too. Not too sure how close this is to the authentic version. Nevertheless, the taste was not too bad just that the items were not really immersed in the gravy.

This outlet is different from other outlets under the chain, as it specialises in Bak Kut Teh.

Bak Kut Teh Claypot Pork Ribs Soup 砂煲肉骨茶 ($10.90++)
The soup is served over a hot stove to keep warm. The soup is refillable. The soup is quite peppery, which I feel it kind of takes away the sweetness of the soup and becomes quite one dimensional. The meat from the rib is tender although I prefer it to be more tender like the falling off the bone type.

Bak Kut Teh Claypot Pig's Organ Soup 砂煲猪杂汤 ($9.90++)
The soup base is same as the above soup, but instead of pork ribs, it is served with tender pork slices, slices of pig's stomach, slices of pig's liver and meat balls. I wish that the pig's liver has been sliced thinner, as it not tender enough and a bit too thick. The meat ball tastes like the supermarket type with no bite to it.

Don't forget to order this to go with the soup. Although the dough fritter is not crispy, but it does a good job of soaking up the soup.

In this outlet it also offers Bak Kut Teh Porridge which marry 2 dishes together : Bak Kut Teh and its well known claypot porridge. The porridge uses stock made from high graded white pepper, which has been brewing for more than 3 hours since morning. The white pearled rice is cooked with the stock using a pressure cooker for 45 minutes, until the rice is almost broken.

The dish is served with a garlic chilli sauce, which kind of reminds me of the McDonald's type. Different from the usual kind of chilli paste. I am a bit disppointed that there is no braised pig's intestines and braised duck in serving. It would be better if there the items have braised longer. The peanuts are not soft enough, while the pork belly do not have a melt in the mouth texture. Threfore a bit hard to eat with its rich layers of fats.

Assorted Ampang Yong Tau Foo 安邦酿豆腐 ($9.90++ S, $14.90++ M, $18.90++ L)
Although it is modeled against the well known KL version of yong tau foo, I personally feel that the taste is far cry from the actual stuff. The sauce is a bit too heavy, lacking of the hint of sweetness that assoicated with the ampang yong tau foo's sauce. The stuffed yong tau foo such as fried bean stick, beancurd skin, fried wanton, brinjal, tau pok, lady’s finger, bitter ground, and chilli is served on a bed of kang kong with the sauce poured over. The dish is served with a sambal chilli paste which I feel is a bit too salty.

The white peppercorns from Sarawak has been fried before being made into a soup which is used for the porridge. It is then cooked in a high-pressure pot .Great tasty porridge coupled with chewy meatballs. However due to the fiery taste, the porridge is not for children. The Pork ribs porridge is less peppery ,the ribs are well marinated adn delicious.

The Ampang Yong Tau Foo consists of kangkong,bittergourd,redchilli ,bringal and fried wanton.It comes with a sambal chilli dip which they make themselves. The ingredients are fresh and tasty. The Braised Platter comes with juicy peanuts, braised pork ,tau pok, beancurd skins and beancurd puff. The Dry Bak Kut Teh chicken cubes comes with dried cuttlefish shreds.It is fried with Bak Kut Teh spices.The tender chicken pieces comes with small pieces of ladies finger.

The Pork Ribs Soup  in a pot has 3 pieces of pork ribs kept warm.Not enough soup? Ask for more.the soup is tasty but the ribs could be cooked longer for it to be softer.The Pig's organ soup is flavourful and spicy.It has pieces of pig stomach and liver.Get a bowl of rice ,you will enjoy the dish better.

The pot of Flower and fruit tea comes with a warmer.It comes with a little glass cup for you to sip if things get too peppery.The longer the flowers and fruits stay in the pot ,the tastier it is. finish everything,don't waste the tea.

Porridge dishes such as Pork ribs porridge and Minced meat with meatball porridge were generally alright but other dishes such as Ampang Yong Tau Foo, Assorted Vegetables in Sambal sauce and Dry BKT chicken cubes could be further improved, in my opinion as there are better BKT outlets out there. Soups such as Pork Ribs soup and Pig Organ's soup were aright, but nothing to shout about.

Let's start with the Claypot Porridge, followed by the soup, braised dishes, and so on..

Minced Meat with Meat Ball Porride ($9.90 )
Teochew people knowns for their dishes of Teochew Porridge. It is the same as what the porridge being served at A-One : Well Known Teochew Porridge. The poridge was really great and peppery ! Literally melts in my mouth.
It is a watery porridge which is a bit of dry concept. The main delightful of its porridge is because they are using a Bak Kut Teh stock to prepare its delicacy. Cooking time takes about 45 mins thru a high pressure cooker with a mix of white pepper.

Pork Ribs Porridge ( $10.90)
Cooking concept is the same as Minced Meat Porridge. It is using white pearl rice and bak kut teh stock with a good combination of pepper, garlic, and spices. So, what makes its porridge different from the above is : it is more watery based porridge beside the pork ribs ingredients. Though the ribs was quite tender and fresh but i still prefer a dry based porridge so that i could taste the delicacy of porridge.

Well the soup is same as porridge, it is peppery ! But don't be mixed up with Bak Kut Teh stock that served in porridge, This dishes is cooked in complex broth of herbal and spices, with a pleasant thick dark brown broth color as this is what tradition delicay Bak Kut Teh was introduced. The meat is supposed to be tender, but it is not. It would be a good complement dishes, if the pork ribs tender. Well ! The best time to eat Bak Kut Teh is always to have You Tiao (fried dough ) there !

Pig's Organ Soup ($9.90)

Using a Bak Kut Teh Peppery soup, same as pork ribs soup it needs 3 hours to done the broth. In the early morning like 6 am / 7 am  they already prepare to cook the broth to its A-One standard. The fire was lighted on spot on the table. Doesn't it looks like steamboat feast ?? LOL. It is a good serving concept quality to preserve the food hot. The porky broth comes with liver, pig intestines, and pork slices. I don't eat liver so i am sorry to exclude out liver. Pig intestines are the most liked ! It is tender and meaty to eat.

Dry Bak Kut Teh Chicken Cubes ($12.90)
As far as the concern of Bak Ku Teh all are from Pork, now let's change to Chicken.  A-One offered a Tender Chicken Bak Kut Teh Cubes which is still maintained the consistency of using Bak Kut Teh stock. Premium stock that being cooked together with dark soya sauce, dry chili and slices of cuttlefish makes the sweet, mild spicy gravy simmered into the dishes. They could improve on its gravy to make it more characteristics as i found that it is a bit too watery. As usually if the gravy is creamer would taste nicer

DETAILS

Accessibility:

Approx. 3 mins walk from Buona Vista MRT Station (Exit C)

LET'S EAT!

All cooked with their signature Bak Kut Teh (BKT) stock recipe, which uses high grade white pepper for boiling and simmering for hours, they have churned out many BKT themed dishes, some of which we tried when we visited. Some were less peppery, some were more fiery.

Under the dishes cooked with their bak kut teh recipe, I liked the good ol' Pork Ribs Soup ($10.90) which was peppery. I also liked that the tender meat which was easy to remove from the bone.

Take the meat and dip it into their dipping sauce mixture: Sweet black sauce, chopped garlic and chilli padi. The taste is awesome.

I am a lover of Pig's Organs Soup. Surprisingly, if you order their Pig's Organs Soup ($9.90), they also cooked it with a less peppery version of their BKT stock. However, I can't say this is my favourite, because the peppery taste takes away the essence of the soup, somewhat.

If you want something more filling, try their BKT Pork Ribs Porridge ($10.90) and Minced Meat with Meat Ball Porridge ($9.90).

Like usual popular A-One porridge in other branches, the porridge here is cooked with pearl rice, which makes the porridge smooth, with softer grains. Both porridge is cooked with BKT stock for 45 minutes, using high pressure cookers.

Meat lovers, you can try the dry BKT Chicken Cubes ($12.90) and the Braised Platter ($14.90).

The Dry BKT Chicken cubes are interestingly similar to the Kung Pao chicken dish. But for their rendition, they used their BKT soup base to cook it. It's fragrant, with addition of thinly sliced dried cuttlefish.

The Braised Platter, on another hand, is similar to the assorted braised items that you would go with your kway chap. While the gravy is flavourful, I was a little bummed out that they didn't include pig intestines in this dish. Both dishes are great with rice.

For the Ampang Yong Tau Foo, it comes in 3 sizes: small ($9.90, medium ($14.90) and large ($18.90). Ours was the medium sized one, good for 2 - 3 pax.

The assorted vegetables feature, what A-One likes to call, the 4 'heavenly kings' of vegetables, namely: Sweet peas, eggplant, ladyfinger and long beans.

Overall, it is interesting that they have come up with this concept where most things can be cooked with a signature bak kut teh stock, but the control of the BKT flavour - more fiery, spicy, peppery or BKT prominent - are just a thin line from being different.

Hopefully, they have mastered controlling the flavours for various Bak Kut Teh dishes, because there must be an edge to the various dishes even if it is BKT themed. Importantly, flavours need to be kept consistent for its returning BKT loving customers.

This is an invited media tasting session.
