Been waiting for this meal for a very long time since I left Singapore a couple of years ago - definitely should not miss this if you are in Singapore - fantastic taste and great service

Take note that the soup is pepperish. If you are a herbal BKT fan, this is not the place for you. I love pepperish BKT and this place is so good! Order the pig leg and big intestines!! Ask for some garlic and chili padi!!!...More

Very specific food for Europeans. There is a menu only with pork meat. The service is very fast. However, no one doesn’t speak English normally. The meal was normal, but it’s very heavy for the health. Soup,pork meat and rice are the local Singaporean dish....More

We had a meal there and it was quite good, Bak Kut Teh was good but what we like is the big intestine and braised pork belly, super delicious.

Whenever I come to Singapore Bak Kut Teh here is a must get there before 10.30 and you avoid a long que wonderfull rib soup and a nice old time feel to it.

Good food. Long queues. Small space. Around 20 SGD per person. Worth a try. Free flow soup servings. Extra 10 cents for additional wet tissue.

I was taken here by colleagues in Singapore for a business lunch. This is a common Singaporean dish and they were interested in me trying it. I have to say it was edible, but quite an acquired taste. I went for the more expensive loin...More

The main dish is the bowl of soup. The amount of flavour in the bowl is out of this world, some say its therapeutic some say its hot and junky. Meat was good in the soup, served with rice and a few interesting side dishes....More

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.

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.
