ork rib soup is at $5.00.

Especially enjoy the pork rib soup and braised beancurd.  Pork ribs are very juicy and easy to chew, which is full of the natural pork flavour in it.   Braised Beancurd is also very soft and easy to eat with either rice or porridge.

Old Street (PL) Pte Ltd

Singapore 534840

something special that draws me to this eatery is their high tech food ordering system. Not something new in restaurants but in a eatery? this is the first time i encounter this.

he whole eatery is linked using intranet system where the menu is placed on a iPad that is located at each and every table. you can view the menu and select your order on the iPad and once you confirmed, you just simply check out your food cart and the order will be transferred to their main system and they will start to prepare to serve you your food order. a very efficient way as it helps to reduce manpower to take orders!

On the menu, you can choose ala carte items or set meal. for their set meal, it is super value for money as it comes with desert as well and is only about 12 bucks. You can also choose premium ribs for your bak kut teh if you want. not forgetting to mention about their dry bak kut teh which is not commonly found in other eateries

their set meal will consist of 1 bowl of bak kut teh with premium ribs, 1 rice, 1 soya bean curd and 1 you tiao.

dry bak kut teh @ $7.00. the dried one is served in a clay pot while the normal ones are using bowls. the dried one is a little too dry and has a burnt taste plus smell. however, it is quite special as it is stirred fried with ginger and their specialty dark soya sauce or maybe some spices in it.

Good evening, folks! Welcome to the Asian edition of my FoodHunt in Singapore, today I am presenting to you a Singapore Unique Food. Fond by many youngster and folks, here the savoury and yummy Old Street Bak Kut Teh! Many of us who love Bak Kut Teh, can tell you what makes it so Bak Kut Teh is the spicy, peppery, (not a fan) garlicy pork broth and the slow brewed pork hind leg ( I called it this way ) a.k.a pig trotter (if I not wrong). I will start with the broth, one small spoonful of the broth makes you taste the real stuff in Singapore. Very aromatic and ridiculously nice, because the after taste lingered in my mouth (not the spicy taste, but the pork's essence in the broth). It just keeps going and going, until what's left is the meat, you can opt to refill the soup. On the other hand, the meat on the bone is extremely tasty. With a little dip of dark soya sauce, it can rocket you right away to the moon. So deliciously! The last of my highlight is the slow brewed pork hind leg, it looks like it contains more fat than you can eat in a week, but you are so wrong. The meat itself is of protein, largely protein and very small amount of fat tissue. As you use the chopstick to tear the meat, the flesh just slower peel off from the bone. This is a sign of cook to perfection, extremely tender and seductive. Hell no I aint going to skip that. If you do happen to walk around the region, go and a try! You will hook up by the flavours, be warned!

My office is now near this area and upon a colleague's suggestion, we decided to travel to Tai Seng for lunch.

As expected, the place is packed as it was lunch time.

Ordering is via an iPad tucked neatly in a custom-made drawer under the table surface.

Service was relatively slow today and they forgot a few of the food items we ordered.

I had pig's liver in soup with mee sua today. The soup was heavily peppered but I am fine for I enjoy the taste of pepper. The liver was sliced evenly but were a little over cooked.

We asked for the bill for countless times. A colleague got impatient and went to the counter. That was when we realised that the staff are very forgetful that day. Everyone in the queue complained of food items which never arrived. The cashier just acknowledged each person with the response that he will purge that item from the bill accordingly. No apology and no clarification as to whether you would still want the drink/food.

Ordering via iPad is cool for a coffeeshop styled eatery. But it stops here.

Dry Pig's Tail - $7
This dry pig tail is cooked with dark soya sauce, instead of immersing in the peppery pork ribs soup. It tastes quite good too.

Kai Lan - $5.50
Besides their famous peppery pork ribs soup, their kai lan has also some kind of "substance", which has the right amount of soya sauce, garnishing that makes it tasty.

AMBIENCE
Situated in a coffee shop setting, this eatery is quite crowded and noisy. Do expect high volume of traffic during dining hours.

Love the pork ribs soup (not that peppery but very fragrant pork ribs taste)very much, they keep refilling the soup, love their generosity of refilling, even though mee sua ordered, they also refill the soup. Pork ribs soup is worth to order costing $6. Tea nothing special, very normal.

My friend, who is a big fan of Bak Kut Teh, has tried most of the Bak Kut Teh in Singapore. The Bak Kut Teh guru highly recommended Old Street Bak Ku Teh located along Upper Paya Lebar Road. It occupies one of the shophouse units and is easily visible with its huge signboard. If you know where is the famous Kay Lee char Siew rice, Old Street Bak Ku Teh is actually located just two units away from Kay Lee.Their specialty is actually the dry version but I was like, "huh ?

My friend, who is a big fan of Bak Kut Teh, has tried most of the Bak Kut Teh in Singapore. The Bak Kut Teh guru highly recommended Old Street Bak Ku Teh located along Upper Paya Lebar Road. It occupies one of the shophouse units and is easily visible with its huge signboard. If you know where is the famous Kay Lee char Siew rice, Old Street Bak Ku Teh is actually located just two units away from Kay Lee.

Their specialty is actually the dry version but I was like, "huh ? I thought the main thing about Bak Ku Teh is the soup?". Anyway, my friend tried the dry version during a previous visit and didn't think it was fantastic. Hence, we ordered the normal soup version ($6) and fried You Tiao ($1.50).

The subtly herbal and peppery soup was both flavorful and zesty! As for the pork meat, there was a good amount of both fatty soft meat and lean meat. The pork meat was so tender that it just disintegrated in the mouth. And very tasty as well. The You Tiao, unfortunately, was not crispy enough. I think they have put the You Tiao out in the air for too long and hence it lost its crispness. Ok I am dreaming about the soup already.

Tip: refilling of soup is free of charge.

Service was attentive but I visited them during an off peak hour. The food was served very fast. The environment was spacious, clean and very much a modern coffee shop.

There is difficulty looking for parking spaces if you drive there. There are very few parking spaces as the shop is located along the shop houses. Good food will not stop us! If you are going by nearest transport, take tai Seng. Their shop has the old and traditional feel and it feels like you are in the past. Their menu has photographs to come with the names of their dishes and everything looks appealing in there. There will be a slip of paper and you will have to tick the dishes that you want

We ordered: (bottom left, anti clockwise direction in the picture)
1. pork rib soup
2. Premium Loin Ribs (supposedly the bigger kind of pork rib)
3. Pig Kidney soup
4. Peanuts
5. Pig's stomach soup
6. kai lan
7. Dry Pig's Tendon (not in picture)
I think all the prices all reasonable and we expected it to be much more expensive.
Firstly, their pork rib soup is not too peppery and it tasted really good! The pork ribs were not hard. It has the chewy feeling. I will really recommend their dry pig tendon as it is really very unique. It is my first time eating in a spicy, fried in dark soya sauce.

What's good is that they give free tea! yes, the traditional chinese tea. There are kettles around which you are able to go and refill to make your tea. You just have to keep pouring the hot water over the tea and let it settle down before you pour it into your small cups

It is indeed a traditional experience

Well, other than trying their Bak Kut teh, I tried the pig kidney soup too. It was such a disappointment. There is less than 8 slices of kidney inside and if you see in the picture, it seems the bowl is filled with the pig kidney, however, that was the effect of the spoon at the back. It just does not worth the price at all. The taste of it was acceptable. At least the kidney was well cooked, not bloody taste or over cooked.

Initially I was at Tai Seng to visit a roasted meat store which is quite near to the old street Bak Kut Teh, however, it was closed on Monday so I had no choice but to try out this bak Kut Teh. Well, when I was browsing the menu, I realise that they are famous for their dried Bak Kut Teh, however it was spicy (I cannot take any spicy food), so I decided to give it a miss and ordered the orginal Bak Kut Teh.

The taste of the meat was ok, not the best I had tried, but also not the worst I had tried. Nevertheless, their soup was awesome, the pepper taste was strong enough and it seems that the soup was cooked for many hours before it can be so sweet (I can imagine there is a lot of nutrients “swimming” inside the soup)! However, I do not really like the environment, there is a lot of houseflies flying around.
