Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh: Life Changing Bak Kut Teh At Simpang Bedok
Started in 2013, Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh serves not just a hearty bowl of Bak Kut Teh, but also driving a strong message of 2nd chance in life (for everyone). Owner, Jabez Tan, was an inmate himself for more than a decade and turned over a new leaf during his period of imprisonment. Given the chance to help out in the kitchen, he eventually became a chef and now having his own eatery.
Similar to Eighteen Chefs, most of Soon Huat’s employees have records and now given the opportunity to transform their lives for the better.
Came here after training with my team mates. Underneath the smiley faces is a thrashed out body after a grueling sessions of 400m intervals.
The Bak Kut Teh (BKT) has a unique herbal flavour which I’ve yet to encounter from other Bak Kut Teh eateries. On top of that, their original bowl of BKT also includes pig innards ($5.90 for 1 pax, $11.90 for 2-3 pax, $22.90 for 4-5 pax).
Check out this glorious bowl of cholesterol, I mean Braised Large Intestines ($6.9)! Braised and thickly coated with black sauce, giving it an intense colour and flavour.
Braised Knuckles ($6.9) is a mandatory dish during my BKT visits. Despite the thick black sauce, but it wasn’t the best I’ve had. Something is just missing, perhaps the meat itself was a little dry.
Of course, for healthier living (yeah right…), 2 plates of vegetable ($3.9) for sharing!
