A sudden obsession with bak kut teh lately which is hard to explain. Unknowingly, i had 2 weeks of bak kut teh already haha. my first one will start at old street bak kut teh where i happened to drive pass upper paya lebar road over the weekend. a pleasant surprise to find lots of eateries there too.Old Street (PL) Pte Ltd129 Upper Paya Lebar RoadSingapore 534840something special that draws me to this eatery is their high tech food ordering system.

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. for those who loves premium ribs, you can also ordered it as a individual item. the bowl of hot bak kut teh will consist of 2 premium ribs. The soup is not overly peppery. preserved vegetable is one of the must order! a small bowl that is 3 bucks which is quite expensive haha. the vegetable is quite well cooked for those who are the tau kee lovers, do not forget to order this ! Tau kee @ $4 bucks Overall my food critics
