Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup Eating House: Bak Kuh Teh

Wow the name of this place is quite a mouthful. I just call it the Bak Kuh Teh Place.

Here you get a wonderful peppery pork rib soup (also known as Bak Kuh Teh which literally means Pork Bone Tea) which I love to have with dough fritters. You need to soak those dough fritters (called You Tiao or You Char Kway) in the soup and they taste so divine. It’s the best in Singapore in my opinion and in many other more qualified people’s opinions too. It was once reported in the newspapers that even Thak Sin, the former prime minister of Thailand, likes this place.

I am not a fan of boiled pork, but I just come here for the soup. These days the place is run so efficiently that your soup is refilled for you. The last time I was here you had walk to the counter and top up your own soup.

You can even try drinking Chinese tea the old fashioned way. If you’re a tourist it would be a great activity to try out.
