Best Teh Tarik in Singapore (Nameless Stall at Kampong Glam)

The elderly white bearded uncle at the little nameless tea shop, just opposite Kampong Glam cafe makes the best tea in Singapore hands down. It’s called a Sarabat stall (selling mainly drinks and run by mainly Indian Muslim owners) and is located at the junction of Bussorah & Baghdad Street. It actually worries me if lovely stalls like this disappear. It’s the most wonderful part of Singapore culture.

I was too shy to ask if I could take a picture but I did get a shot of his accolades including a magazine cut-out from as far off as Japan. It’s pretty cool that his tea is recognized by not only me. The coffee shop was buzzing with old Malay men when I was there. They have probably been regulars here for years. I just love the taste of rose esssence in the teh tarik but this time I had teh alia (ginger tea). I prefer the ginger tea at tekka as I like the ginger to be really strong but I haven’t had better teh terik anyway else.

Just look out for the building at Kandahar Street painted blue. It’s diagonally across from the little public car park.

I have been here quite a few times and wish I could come here daily:
