Tender fresh meat. Nice peppery soup. Pork belly is a must try.
Excellent location! Clean shop! Friendly staff! Love the herbal soup!
One of the best bak kut teh places around for peppery soup
the bakuteh still remain quite salty. but overall the meat is nice and tasty and the service can be improved due to one of the work is not really friendly
Went there around 8pm and the premium bak kut teh were all sold out! Meat was tough for popularity version. But the you tiao was nice and cripsy - freshly fried. I think there are better places out there for bak kut teh. But at least this place has quite a lot of promos (from Burpple, Eatigo, etc.).
Soup is tasty as always, but can't help to feel that it was missing it's usual heat level that enhances the good peppery spiciness. Also the meat was slightly dry. But overall enjoyable! One of the staff was very helpful in helping us redeem our Klook voucher.
We ordered two bak kut teh which was served very quickly. The soup and rice were nice. Some of the meat felt a little too dry but it was pretty decent. We'll probably return again.
It is opposite bugis junction. The staff are very friendly and polite. The food was served hot and fast. It is nice to have The bak kut teh on a cold day
Peppery soup with a nice fiery punch; but too salty! Ribs are fatty and not fall-off-the-bone tender, so looks more like marketing hype at work justifying the price premium!! My wife cooks a better bkt anytime :)
i like founder bak kut teh, the taste are great and i always request them to refill the bak kut teh soup again and again .
