XIANG LAI BAK KUT TEH – KRANJI, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

Spotted this stall on Google Maps and have been wanting to try it for the longest time. Just that you know, Kranji is not exactly a place that is near anything except the Zoo and Johor Bahru. Stall is operated by mother and son tag team. Took over the stall from someone else but made it better under her charge. At least for most of the food that I’ve tried. Check out my vid for my reviews!

DFTBA Kitchen – Farrer Park, Singapore

Advertisements

One look at the name you must be wondering what this kitchen is cooking right? Well this place is a little hidden gem which I discovered recently for BKT… Yes, Bak Kut Teh!

Weird is the fact this place is located nearby 2 other famous BKT places! Why compete with these big guys? Well they have an advantage. They sell herbal BKT and also dry ones. Other advantage is, their prices are cheaper than the other 2!

So WTH does DFTBA means? It literally means Don’t Forget To Be Awesome. And owner Connie,  a retired police officer, never fails to be. She has since invited old folks from homes for lunch at their premise and they all enjoyed the food! Opening DFTBA in May 2015 is totally out of passion for cooking and good food!

I have since visited DFTBA twice and both occasions the food didn’t fail me. Check out the pics below!



Housed in Hoe Lye Coffeeshop
Located at far left corner
Yummy herbal BKT. Not exactly like your Malaysian dark soup type but this is a pleasant light herbal soup
Dry BKT. Love the way they fry it with shredded cuttlefish. Damn yums and eating with white rice is a must!
Latest inclusion. Braised pork leg. Very nice and very tender.
Ngoh Hiang. Very nice side dish.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Very nice. The passion is felt through the food from the owner. Try their Sesame Oil Chicken and Sambal Lady’s Finger if you have a bigger group.

Portion: Average.

Service: Excellent. Their laughter a are contagious!

Ambience: Coffeeshop. Can get quite hot.

Price: In the range of $5 and $10 portions.

RTE: Oh yeah when the craving comes!

老街肉骨茶 (Old Street Bak Kut Teh) – Upper Paya Lebar, Singapore

Advertisements

I was looking for a place for lunch one of the early afternoons around Paya Lebar area when this super loud signage caught my attention. So I went in and found a table at one corner. Although it is named Old Street, this joint has the latest gadgets for their Order Management System! I was so impress with the iPads on every table and patrons can order their foods at the comfort of their table! Check out my review below:

The loud signage I was talking about… Quite cool right?

iPad order management system

I’m impressed!

Wah this set looks worth it! At $8.50 you get a bowl of bak kut teh, you tiao, soy bean curd and a bowl of rice!

Side dishes!

After adding your orders, this message pops up to let you know your order has gone through.

For the tables not along the walls, you pull this out to order!

This is at 12.15pm…

Help yourselves with the condiments and sauces…

Traditionally, bak kut teh is usually accompanied by brewing a pot of chinese tea… Check out the tap for topping up the water by the side….

I was expecting a small bowl of bak kut teh prolly with 3 miserable pieces of pork ribs/bones. But there was 4 pieces with 2 rather meaty ribs. Soup was really wholesome and peppery, love it!

You tiao (doughsticks) are served hot and fresh to go with your soup! Awesome selling point!

Braised small intestines. Really nice and good portioning! – S$6.50

Soy bean curd is smooth and silky!

My damage…

Overall Rating: 4.5/5. Although it is a little on the pricey side with GST, the food is really of good quality and taste. It would be cheaper if I wasn’t alone. Nevertheless, thumbs up and would revisit soon!

Location: 129 Upper Paya Lebar Road.
