REVIEW: Song Fa ba kut teh has the BEST pork ribs soup in Singapore (if not the entire planet)

After that tiring yet rewarding trip to Science Centre, my mom and aunt were starving! Hahaha! They were also craving for anything SOUP! So I messaged my  fitspo buddy Marga of @margabanaga who recently stayed in SG and asked her local friends for recommendations.

“Where can we eat good soup without making our wallets cry?”

SONG FA bak kut teh! That was their unanimous answer.



We were supposed to go “shopping” at China Town. Didn’t know it was deserted like a ghost town on Sundays. 🙁

It was around lunch time so the place was packed. But not full enough that we need to wait before seating.

They have a straightforward menu of their best-selling dishes. I decided to order 2 large pork ribs soup (9.50sgd), rice, rice noodles,  and a kiddie set for macho kid.

My mom was pretty excited! 

At first glance you might think it looks like an ordinary soup. But wait till you take a bit of the meat and sip of the soup. It’s an explosion of flavors! 

The meat is tender and falls off the bone. You can tell it’s fresh by the way it melts in your mouth. Ahhhh.. satisfying. The broth, which they proudly mentioned made for 16-hours was flavorful with a spicy kick that warms up your body real good! Best partnered with an ice cold tea!

The pork ribs soup reminds me of what my lolo used to make when he was younger and able. A dish made from time and dedication. 

Macho kid had the kiddie meal (11.90sgd) which includes minced meat noodles, pork chops, broccoli, and black currant juice.

Jop is a picky eater and I didn’t expect him to eat a lot. Surprisingly he ate everything except the broccoli.

The servers were friendly and we didn’t experience any racial bias. Writing this food review makes me wish I was in Singapore again just to have their best pork ribs soup T_T

Bring it to the Philippines. Please? 🙂
