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
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.
