Bak Kuh Teh is the well-known morning meal in Singapore which means " Meat Bone Tea". This soup has 3 key main , ingredients; garlic, star anise and pepper. These herbs that are found in Bak Kuh Teh is known for its health benefits like preventing heart disease, healing herb, helps fight cancer.
Rong Hua Bak Kuh Teh is one of Singapore's oldest and famous restaurants which is popular for its signature pork rib soup. They have 3 branches in Singapore ;MarinaSquare, Punggol Waterway Point, and in Fusionopolis. I heard a lot of good reviews about the Bak Kuh Teh thru my Filipino friends who are working in Singapore.
I was craving and curious to have a taste of this famous dish in Singapore. The good news is, I don't need to go that far since Rong Hua Bak Kuh Teh is opening their door to Filipinos as they opened its first store outside the Lion City.
Yesterday I was invited, to try the famous Rong Hua Bak Kuh Teh pork soups and some of their recommended dishes.
Bak Kuh Teh Pork Rib Soup
If the Philippines we have what we called " Nilagang Baboy" which is a perfect dish to serve during rainy days.
In Singapore their favorite meal in the morning is the Bak Kuh Teh. One of the variations of their Pork Soups is the Pork Ribs Soups. The soup has this garlicky flavor but the first thing that I noticed is that pepper overpower the other ingredients. The flavor and taste were new to me, but as I continue tasting the soup it becomes more interesting.
The soup is a must-try because of its unique and bold flavor. This is best to have during the rainy season. But I was expecting that the meat was tender and it should be like it will fall off the bone, but there is always a room for improvement.
Here are the Rong Hua Bak Kuh Teh Recommended Choices.
I am familiar with some of these dishes since these are likely the same Chinese dishes that I was able to try while I was living in Hong Kong.
This dish doesn't taste like a duck I thought this is a premium cut ham. It is has a sweet flavor and easy to chew. Kids will also definitely love this dish
Braised Chicken Feet with Bean Curd
Did I say Beancurd? I almost finish the bean curd.
This dish has a nice flavor that anyone would love to try. But if you are not a fan of Chicken Feet you may want to try some of the other recommendations.
Steamed Lotus Buns
This is now one of my favorite in their menu.
The lotus buns are freshly made by Rong Hua Bak Kuh Teh. Inside was a soft and tender marinated roast pork belly or loin. Perfect for a take-out or if you are on the go.
Steamed Tofu with minced meat
Tofu is known for its health benefits and if you are on a diet Tofu is one of the nice things to put on your list.
The tofu was perfectly steamed, it was soft and has a nice texture, it goes well with the minced meat that was placed on top of it.
Smoked Duck in Crispy Spring Roll
Rong Hua Bak Kuh Teh was named from the restaurant founders. Chua Ah Hua, the restaurant fou ding ground father and Uncle Rong the stall owner of a well-known Bak Kuh Teh in a village.
Ah Hua migrated in Singapore and become the kitchen apprentice. He mastered the art of cooking Bak Kuh Teh and later created their unique blend of the pork ribs soup recipe. Before Uncle Rong passed away, He named Ah Hua as his successor.
