Founded in 1969, Song Fa Bak Kut Teh started out as a pushcart stall along Johor Road and has grown to become a popular chain of restaurants that is famous for its hearty, comforting bowls of bak kut teh. Its founder, Yeo Eng Song, started out in the food scene when he was 19 at a zichar stall and at 21, he opened his own stall, the now Song Fa Bak Kut, selling pork rib soup and braised pig’s trotters. In 1975, he moved to a more permanent store within a coffeeshop along Victoria Street. After years of cooking, he finally passed down the store to his 3 children, Diana, Hart Pong and Zhi Yong, who have been helping him out with the business since they were children. They have even expanded out of our little red dot, and asides from the 10 outlets in Singapore, they also have 7 outlets in Indonesia, 6 in China and 1 in Bangkok. They have also included more dishes to their ever-expanding menu such as ngoh hiang and sliced fish soup.

I’ve passed by Song Fa Bak Kut Teh a number of times but have always been intimidated by the long queues. I finally managed to get a seat one rainy day when I went around an odd time of 4pm. I got myself a bowl of pork ribs soup with a side of you tiao and rice. I will be honest and say that I wasn’t expecting much because I expected the food here to be overhyped up, but surprisingly, the food here was really good and I can safely say that it’s one of the best bak kut tehs i’ve ever tried in Singapore. As it is a Teochew-style bak kut teh, one can expect the soup to be peppery, which it was. I like how the soup here was rich and concentrated without being too overwhelmingly peppery, and all the flavours were very nicely balanced. Most bak kut tehs i’ve eaten have pork ribs that are on the drier side, but the ones here at Song Fa have a good fat to meat ratio so each rib was tender with a good bite to it. The you tiao here admittedly is on the pricier side but it’s well worth forking out money for because they were extremely crispy and fresh. Overall, truly worth the hype and it is definitely worth queuing for.
