Chinese soup with juicy pieces of pork and fresh garlic is popular among Singaporean palate. Then, right here at Koon Bak Kut Teh you can experience the classic version of it. Using the fresh ingredients without any preservatives, each bowl consistently delivers a strong aroma and light flavor of the soup. To what extent, no bowl cost you above S$ 10.00 which means really affordable and wallet friendly. Sounds interesting? We will take you a tour for what to expect from this old-fashioned stall.
Located directly across Beauty World MRT (Downtown Line), this food stall is packed with white collar worker during weekday and family during the weekend. Adapting the minimalist interior design with wooden furniture and big pictures on the menu, diners can expect for the warmth atmosphere somehow. However, when it is too crowded and the staff not in a really good mood, they will just deliver a negative attitude of serving.
First stop is this simple Bak Kut Teh (S$ 6.00). A naturally sweet soup with tender pieces of pork and finishes off with a nice black pepper is just delicious. We do highlight the right fat layer on that pork to keep the meat moist and chewy whenever you bite it. For the best experience, just dipped it in the chili sauce on side.
The most affordable Singapore Braised Meat Rice (S$ 4.90) is also enjoyable. The protein is well marinated with tender meat and a thick layer of fat at the center. Paired with the additional salty vegetables, nicely boiled egg and roasted peanuts, your meal supposed to be perfect. Juicy, tasty and fragrant for each spoon of it.
Luncheon Meat with Matcha Sauce (S$ 5.50) is absolute must try. Despite the fact it looks so simple, the taste is absolutely impressed us a lot. That sauce is well executed with balanced matcha flavor and creamy mayo sauce. Even the meat itself is juicy and tender. This menu absolutely goes well with a couple of steam rice.
Still not enough? Fragrant Spicy Fishcake (S$ 3.20) can be your last stop in here. Featuring the chewy pieces of fish cake topped with homemade red chili. In terms of flavor and texture, it is just attracting. However, the price seems to be too high compared with its contender around the area.
For the choice of drinks, guest can order a cup of Teh-O-Peng or maybe Kopi-O for the classic favorite. The Mineral Water, Coca Cola or Pokka Green Tea also available. Do ask the staff for more assistance.
Koon Bak Kut Teh offers you a good local dishes at reasonable prices. Even though the staff sometimes reflecting their mood, not at the right place, we still enjoy our meal. Worth a try.
