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

One of the few stores that offer authentic pork rib soup. Staff will keep refilling your bowl with bak kut soup until all the ribs are finished. They have a few stores & we visited the one in China town. Try to go early to avoid the long queue.

Ordered the Pork Rib and Pig Stomach Bak Kut Teh Soup, Braised Chicken Feet with Beancurd sheets, Choi Sum, and their homemade Water Chestnut Water. Pork Rib soup was very peppery but delicious too, if you want more soup, you can ask them to add more to your bowl at no additional charges. Braised chicken feet and beancurd was tasty... More

Always visit here for lunch or dinner as I enjoy the food and also the prompt service. Staff are helpful(helping you with orders and topping up with soup), the waiting time is short for the food to be serve but of course if it's during their peak periods, you'll need to queue quite some time before getting a seat. Enjoy... More

Really nice food, nothing fancy but the food alone speaks for itself. Not just the Bak Kut Teh, but other dishes too. Worth a visit.

I love this restaurant! The Bak Kut Teh is good. The fIavor is just right! They also refill the soup for free. I just don't like their drinks.

Reasonably priced and tasty foods, with a great variety of dishes to choose from. The famous "pork bone tea" is basically the signature dish every customer must have! Very cheap eats but yummy food for tourists who wants to try authentic Singaporean food!

Price: Average Taste: Good Service: Average Atmosphere: Average but the a/c was a great help (Personal opinion. If anyone don't agree and insist its the 'Best', 'Bestest' in the world, good for you) The wait is fine (10 minutes or so). Service is ok but the way the queue is handled, lots of improvement required. Food wise, its just so-so.... More

We searched this place out via trip advisor Because of its strong reviews BUTR when we go there we looked at the location ... right next to McDonalds and waited in line for 15 minutes all the time looking inside ... we finally decided it wasn't worth waiting any more!

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.
