Saw this new Bak Kut Teh place open not too long ago along Balestier Rd just after Rocca building. Have been wanting to try it, so was there during the holidays to check out if the food has something to shout about since they have converted the entire corner coffee shop into an airconditioned eatery with open air seating for smokers.
Walked into the shop during dinner time, was almost full inside. Basically all the staff there are all from China… No Teochews around… But the aircondition was really bad… it was hot!!! So I moved outside instead which was a lot cooler! So I placed my orders and realise the prices are not that cheap also.
Taste: Soup has loads of pork taste in it which is good. BUT, too much white pepper!!! It was so much that I couldn’t talk after that. I felt irritated at the throat after drinking more than 5 spoonfuls of the soup. MSG can be tasted also… which is bad. Cut the pepper and MSG by half, the soup will be a lot better.
Portion: Below average
Price: Stated along with the pics.
RTE: Not in the near future. I rather pay a little more to have better stuff from the Founder Bak Kut Teh just down the next road.
Location: Round the corner of Balestier Road after Rocca Building
