Overall, the soups were nice and it was a simple, comfortable air-con setting with very fast service. They also serve a number of fried vegetables and dishes. Our rating: 7 out of 10 (Ambience: 7, Service: 8, Taste: 7, Presentation: 7, Value-for-Money: 6.5).
Their original recipe Bak Kut Teh Soup ($7.80, or $10.80 with prime ribs) is the cloudy, herbal type rather than the clear peppery type. We liked the richness of the soup (refill is free), and the meat was quite soft. Just very few pieces for $7.80 though…
The Special Braised Pig’s Trotters ($7.80) came with fragrant, thick black sauce which went nicely with rice (at $0.60 per bowl). The Kidney Soup ($8.80) had a nice, herbal aroma with ginger, but our complaint was again that the portion seemed quite small.
