Unlike many other bak kut teh eateries, this Ng Ah Sio stands out in that it offers a bunch of local classics like mee siam, chicken rice, laksa, and breakfast staples of kaya toasts and soft-boiled eggs amongst their repertoire.
1) Signature Spare Ribs Soup ($9.80): Fantastic - the broth was as peppery as it was rich in depth of flavour. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and fresh - no "porky smell" here!
2) Braised Duck ($14 for 1/4): sparkling fresh, tender and swimming in the most heavenly braising sauce.
3) Blanched Lettuce ($5):simple but excellent, this was drenched in a sesame oil-soy emulsion, and brightened by copious lashings of fried garlic bits
4) Mee Rebus ($7.80): must-try...the gravy was thick and robust, and the frills were done well too; the hard boiled egg wasn't overcooked like many other mee rebus renditions, the prawns succulent, and fried baby shrimp delightfully crunchy
Keep it up!
