We like the pig stomach soup and braised intestines besides the pork rib soup. The pig stomach is cooked just right and you get a large serving. We don't cook pig stomach soup at home anymore, if we feel like eating this we go to Song Fa. The soup here is the Teochew style, no black soya sauce in it,... More

The restaurant is quite small but very cozy. 2-4 people is suitable. Ordered ribs soup and some dish I can't remember the name. They taste good. Recommended!

Incredibly delicious! And they keep topping up the soup as mush as you want! The herbs was so well balance and not overpowering (which is good for the likes of my dad who does not like the taste or the smell). They over a 'bag cover' to protect it from the splash .. in case you enjoy it too much..... More

Really enjoyed our dinner out with the kids. Everything was good, especially the pig trotters. The soup refills were especially appreciated and they even brought a covering cloth to protect my handbag from spills -how sweet is that ? Ps. Don't miss the homemade honey lemon drink.

The restaurant's specialties - bak kut teh, broth, cooked from pork ribs, kidneys, liver or tail (on request) with pepper and herbs: What - the secret of the cooks. Bouillon invigorates and energizes the forces so that he was in the restaurant are lined with seven in the morning.

I've tried several bak kut teh joints, and this chain for me is the best. The service is quick and they always make sure your soup is refilled. On top of that, you can buy bak kut teh sachets and try cooking it at home.

Great bak kuh teh for a good price. We highly recommend this as part of your SG itinerary. Great way to experience the culture. Good eats. There can be quite a long queue. We went at 11-ish and didn't have to wait. At 12, the long line appeared.

Bak Kut Teh Pork Rib is excellent together with Bak Kut Teh Pork Fillet. You can have extra pepper. The lime juice is a good combination with the meal

Description
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.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
