The rib soup was good, not very strong in pepper flavor (I personally prefer stronger). The vegi in soup was very good too. The only thing that makes me not give a 5 star rating is because the rib was rather hard and not tasty,...More

The unlimited serving of Bak kut teh soup @ Song Fa Restaurant China town is an attractive idea, the soup is tasty, we like the salty vegetables as well

We thoroughly enjoyed our simple serve of the pork rib soup but are now disappointed reading the reviews. Obviously as a Caucasian we don't deserve or receive all of the information and top ups if the soup. We have noticed a trend here that discriminates...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

Johor Road, Singapore, year 1969 - Beads of perspiration gathered at Yeo Eng Song's brow as he served another bowl of piping hot Bak Kut Teh to the table beside his pushcart stall. The Bak Kut Teh is running out, the founder of Song Fa thought. It is time to retrieve his meats from the chiller at his friend's liquor stall down the road....

And so, these were the humble beginnings of Song Fa Bak Kut Teh.

Today, while we do not operate from a pushcart anymore, our iconic pushcart embodies our belief to bring you an original Bak Kut Teh dining experience where you can enjoy our fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs and flavourful, peppery, spice-infused hot broth in an elaborate 1960s' roadside dining atmosphere.

It is at Song Fa, where one can relive the heritage of good old Bak Kut Teh in it's truest sense.
