Fragrant soup with just the right amount of peppery taste (I cannot stand strong peppery taste one).
But after the refills which were free, the peppery taste kind of got to me. :/
And I actually ate all the meat by myself, the meat was tender and salty, it absorbed the soup taste... MMMM.
Love the salted vegetables and youtiao too! ^^
I thought the meesua was a little bland, would definitely order rice instead of meesua next time!

Dough Stick (You Tiao)

Liver / Kidney Soup, the kidney was so soft that one bite you have it melt onto your tongue but... I do not like the urea smell within the piece kidney that was cut proportionally into square patterns on it. Liver was thinly sliced and tastes great, best part is that it doesn't stinks as much as the kidney.
Cost: S$7.00

Mee Sua, my alternative to a bowl of white rice that costs us S$1.50. Serving was quite little like having a kid size meal. However, the mee sua tastes good with Chinese parsley and onion oil.
Cost: S$2.00

Spare Ribs Soup, before commenting on the standard of BKT, we started with tasting the soup as we believe the essence are in there. Like any "white" bak kut teh, most of their soup are peppery. I must admit I will prefer the "black" hokkien version instead of the "white" cantonese version.
Soup was filled only to one quarter of the bowl with 2 miserable pieces of spare ribs. The portion we received were not very lean and quite fatty.
Cost: S$7.00

Pig Intestine are well braised and not that oily. No foul smell was observed.
Cost: S$7.00

Our late dinner for the night. A guy will be walking around to refill the soup. It was hard to grab attention of the service ladies though, we were waving for quite sometimes before she comes to us. Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha occupied has alot of seatings and those with blue table tops are for smoking zones.

Overall, I find that this place is overpriced and overrated. For a similar pricing, we are able to get something bigger portion and better elsewhere.

We ordered spare ribs soup, pig's kidney soup and beancurd. The soup base was too peppery and overpowering. I love peppery bak kut teh soup but this was really too peppery for my liking, almost like those powdered packet bak kut teh where you can simply find in supermarkets.

Gave it 3 stars because it still tastes better than the average BKTs, but one of the bests? Probably not.

What is your first meal for the year 2013? Ours was a Bak Kut Teh meal at Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha. As we drove into the carpark around noon on New Year Day, it seemed that most of the shops and even the coffeshops next to it were all closed.

The you tiao (fried dough sticks) had improved in terms of the crunchiness since the last time we were here. If I remember correctly, their you tiao used to be too soft without the crunch.

My bowl of Bak Kut Teh (Lean Meat). The bowl was rather small but you can ask for free refill of the soup. I felt that the soup was peppery hot but quite salty. However, it was good that we didn't feel thirsty after gulping 2 bowls of soup.

The Food
I ordered the signature spare ribs soup, braised pig trotters, my favorite salted vegetables and youtiao. When I take the first sip of the soup, it is very fragrant and aromatic with a robust peppery taste. The pork ribs are tender and soft as it melts slowly in my mouth.
The salted vegetables are not overly saltish and goes very well with the rice.
The Youtiao also not so oily and remain crispy.

The Service
Service was prompt, and rather smooth as I went on weekdays hence not so crowded.

The Ambience
I like the quiet ambience and surroundings which made me feel relaxed and comfortable.

The Price
Reasonably-priced at $6 for the spare ribs soup, $2 for the salted vegetables and $1.50 for the youtiao for the excellent quality.

Overall
I will definitely come back again and highly recommended to try this!

Here's the receipt/price list for all those who wanna know how much the different chunks of meat cost, because you cannot get the price on the menu. Isn't it strange? They only have pictures and words in the menu but no price. It made my family quite embarrassed to ask how much each dish cost, so we decided to order blindly and simply enjoy our midnight supper. We spent a total of $27.40 for 3 people. We ordered a bowl of pig's trotter, which cost $6.00 for just a few chunks of delicious meat. W

We ordered a bowl of pig's trotter, which cost $6.00 for just a few chunks of delicious meat. When you bite them through with your teeth, the sauce spurts out in your mouth and there is no sign of foul smell. The tender meat do get stuck in-between your teeth though, but you would surely forget your dining etiquette when you come dine in with such delicious pig trotters!
Remember to bring your toothpick because they don't provide any like that. Oh yes, they have a box of free tissue as well so it's very taiwan-style, and being a person who loves to use a lot of tissue, I really made sure that I used a good portion of them!

I have no idea which is the spare ribs soup and the pork ribs soup. The spare ribs cost $1 more than the pork ribs, but both taste as scrumptious. I wish the waitress would introduce us the dishes though, but the sad thing is that there is no garlic in the bak kut teh. We love garlic! The spare ribs soup ($7.00) had more meat than the pork ribs soup ($6.00), i guess that's the difference in pricing. One in particular had tougher meat while the other had more fats. If you could identify which is which, please do leave a comment below!

I was very extremely pleased with the service there, because my family (of 3) had only ordered 2 bak kut teh and 2 rice, but they automatically gave us an extra bowl of soup and an empty bowl without charge. They were quick to refill our bowls and came quickly everytime we asked for their service! I guess it's because the shop was quite empty at the point of time (we went about 1a.m).

I simply love their dough fritters there, it's so much better and tastier compared to their branch at Old Havelock Road. It soaks up the soup of the bak kut teh (Rou Gu Cha) much easier and there is a spongy feeling as you chew on these dough fritters. It cost only $2 for a large plate of dough sticks, enough to fill 3 people.

This plate of salted vegetables ($3) may not look appetizing, but we all gobbled down in a second! With a mixture of crunchiness and sogginess, it goes well with the rice and is a perfect combination if you add in a bit of pork. I think it is really worth it considering for having it at only $3, but sadly there's only one clove of garlic, which our family had to share amongst the three of us.

The portion of rice was quite huge, we were quite filled or maybe it's because we are eating it late at night. Each bowl of rice costs $0.50 and they're the average normal rice you get outside, and I felt they could improve the texture of it to be similar of that from Taiwan's, so that it can go well with the bak kut teh soup.

We were told to pay when the food arrived, but because of the little people we had that day, they only collected payment from us after we've finished eating. I really enjoyed myself there and there were a lot of loyal customers going back, and I saw for myself how the waitress actually memorized the common orders from customers who frequented their shop! I was impressed and would definitely visit this place again someday.

Love drinking ba kut teh, since my mum is lazy to cook, we decided to eat out. Each bowl cost $7 and we were given a choice of lean meat or fatty meat. The soup base is a clear base type, and the pepper taste is there but definitely not too strong. The meat was cooked till soft, tender, and easy to chew. The you tiao taste good too after soaking into the soup.

This joint serves up Teochew style Bak Kut Teh which is similar to that of Founder's. The soup is clear, tasty and peppery and goes down best with a pot of concentrated Chinese tea. However, I found the meat a little too dry and tough, not as tender as I would have liked it to be. The side of intestines tasted rather normal to me. Although Ya Hua's BKT is slightly cheaper, I still prefer Founder's rendition because of the discernible tenderness of the meat and hey! 50 cents more isn't alot to pay for bigger servings and better meat.

Expect regular refills of soup without having to ask for it. Prompt service, and happy chinese staff.

The tender pork ribs are served in a nicely balanced soup ($7 a bowl) with a peppery kick that you may happily indulge in with a bowl of you tiao. We were surprised to see the pork ribs were served in either lean or fatty which you needed to indicate your preference for while placing the order. If rice didn't suit your fancy, you can choose to have a bowl of mee sua instead.

While the menu isn't very extensive, you get braised pig trotters, salted vegetables and dried beancurd (aka Tau pok) should you find the need to augment this already lovely meal.

I'm definitely happy about their opening hours.

Midnight Foodies listen up.
Open from 7am to 3pm and from 6pm to 4am; closed on Monday

You can request them to top up your soup! Mixed the youtiao with the soup and you will never regret it! Heavenly =) Their other side dishes are delicious as well namely, preserved vegetables, beancurd and pork's belly soup. Yummy !

Normally I will order a bowl of pork ribs and rice to go with it. The pork ribs are damn tasty and the meat falls off the bone easily. The soup is tasty and intensely peppery. Like I mentioned earlier, you will sweat a lot drinking it. I also always order a big bowl of "you tiao" to soak up the excess soup once I'm done eating the pork ribs.
