House Of Bak Kut Teh At 226 Middle Road
Instead of having a regular peppery based pork ($7)/short ribs ($6) soup, I went for their Bak Kut Herbs Bowl ($8) that was served with pork ribs. Together with it were the bean curd skin and golden mushroom.
Pork ribs were cooked till perfection as I managed to pull out the bone while keeping the springy textured meat intact. However, the soup had nothing to rave about.
This bowl of Pork Liver Soup ($6) was Patricia’s order. As the saying goes, “one man’s meat is another man’s poison”, this is one dish that I wouldn’t order on my accord. On the other hand, I’m all in for pork intestine, especially if they are braised.
A mandatory dish to order during my Bak Kut Teh visits is the Braised Pork Knuckle ($6.5). Pocket friendly pricing, but mediocre standard. Despite of the decently braised meat, keeping it a longer in the cooking pot to further breakdown the fats and skin would have sealed the deal for me.
Lastly, eating healthy and having a balanced diet is important (isn’t it obvious), that explains the tiny plate of Oyster Sauce Kai Lan ($4).
Overall, a decent tasting and inexpensive place for Bak Kut Teh within this vicinity. You can also head for Soy Bean Curd and Portuguese Tarts at Selegie Bean Curd just a few units away.
