Bak Kuet Teh (Pork Rib Soup)

Restaurant Name: Ng Ah Sio Bak Kuet Teh (黃亞細肉骨茶)

"HK CEO Donald Tsang was in Singapore for a 3-day state visit and thought it would be a good idea to wrap up his tour with supper at the famous Rangoon Road Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup Eating House. Unfortunately the lady owner had different idea… she refused to open beyond the operation hour (6 am to 2 pm) to cater to the V VIP and his entourage." This front page news made this already famous local eatery splashed all over the international medias. Personally, I don’t fancy the Singaporean styled Bak Kuet Teh too much. I love the Penang styled with strong herbs and dark coloured soup.

Bak Kuet Teh (SGD5) with free top up of soup. For the soup, I think pepper taste was too strong, while the soup base was too plain without much herbs. The prok ribs taste a bit little those soup leftovers from mother's soup... too soft & tasteless.

Pig's skin (SGD2) was nicely stewed though, tasty & soft while still keeping the richness in "plastic", rich in cologin.

Stewed Pig's leg with Peanuts (SGD5), good but not fantastic, just normal

Pig's Liver Soup (SGD5) also very normal, same soup base as the Bak Kuet Teh, nothing amazed me.
