Balestier Bak Kut Teh has been around since 1966 and with over 50 years of history, this 3rd generation bak kut teh store that is located in Balestier is well-loved by many. They take pride in their bowls of authentic Teochew-style bak kut teh, which is known to be rich and very peppery. They have a variety of different types of bak kut teh made with different cuts of pork, including spare ribs, premium loin ribs and regular pork ribs. They are also open 24-hours a day, so it makes for a great supper spot!

I got the Classic Bak Kut Teh Soup ($7) which came with a decent amount of ribs that are doused in a piping hot peppery soup. You have to order rice and you tiao separately. I was glad to find that the soup had just the right amount of pepperiness to it and was not too overwhelming. It is also is refillable, so you can drink as much as you want. I had been worried that the ribs would turn out dry and hard to eat, but these were decently tender, juicy and flavourful. For added flavour, dip it in the provided sauces such as chilli and dark soya sauce. Overall, a very simple yet well-executed rendition of this popular Singapore dish and if you want to try an authentic bowl of bak kut teh, this is where you can find it.
