Bak Kut Teh has been one of my favourite local delicacies. Typical there are 2 versions in Singapore, the Klang version that comes in a dark black herbal broth while the Teochew style has a clear and peppery soup. Given a choice, I would always go for the Teochew style that has a peppery kick to it. One of my favourite place selling this type of bak kut teh is Founder's Bak Kut Teh. The original branch is at Balestier Road but I usually go to the Rangoon Road branch which is more convenient and nearer to MRT station.
Pig Liver 2.5/5
Bak Kut Teh Pork Ribs 4.2/5
Bak Kut Teh Spare Ribs 4/5
The Bak Kut Teh basically comes in 2 cuts, the Pork Ribs ($6.50) or Spare Ribs ($9). While the spare ribs are the more premium cut. I usually prefer the pork ribs which are more fatty and tender. The soup here is clear, peppery and pungent. One also can add a bowl of You Tiao ($2) to soak up the delish broth which many locals like to do so.
Beside the Bak Kut Teh, the restaurant also offers many other cooked dishes such as pig trotter, braised beancurd, braised innards and many other vegetables dishes.
