Lovely peppery soup

The location was by the main road so very easy to spot; the interior was spacious and brightly lit. The small touches of decor strewn around the restaurant were rather delightful in their simplicity.

The Beau had the Signature Pork Ribs Soup while I had the Signature Spare Ribs Soup. The meat was tender and the soup was heavily peppered, giving it a strong taste very welcoming especially on a rainy evening as such.

It was tasty but the flavor was lighter, unlike one of its competitors' in the vicinity. I was also hoping they would have the ribs + innards soup, but over here they do not serve it. We also had some rice, you tiao (fried dough rolls), xiao bai cai veg and braised egg along with the soup.

Overall, the food and service here was better than average. The portions may look deceptively small, but they were very filling. Like many Bak Kut Teh restaurants, one may ask for refill of soup as well.

Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs (黄亚细肉骨茶) Soup Eating House at Rangoon Road

Cooked in a distinct Teochew style in the 1950s, the newly improved recipe by Ng Siak Hai since 1977 is situated at Rangoon Road. It is believed that Bak Kut Teh was invented by coolies whose jobs involved much physical hardship and their meagre salaries couldn't afford the luxury of meat then, they used the bones of pork to brew their soups as a form of nourishment.
We wanted Pork Ribs, however, it was sold out by 8pm. Really? Or was it a marketing strategy to boost sales of Signature Spare Ribs Soup.
Soup had a good peppery blast, however, was clouded with lots of garlic. Fans of garlic will definitely love this robust version of Bak Kut Teh. Personally, I preferred if they had held back a little on the garlic. Meat on the spare ribs was tender.

Worth a try but not a personal fav!

For more detailed review and photos, please see http://yentravels.com/tag/ng-ah-sio/

Nice peppery bak Kut teh. Meat is so tender it comes off nicely off the bones full of flavour. Tried the braised duck too which complements the Bak Kut Teh nicely. Braised peanuts were hard and bland.

Not suitable for young children as the soup is very peppery and they don't have non-spicy versions.

Overall worth a try but I personally prefer the white pepper version from Outram Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh with lean meat!

good place

I live close by, and originally don't go to this place. Has something happened in the past 6 months? Now it is the best place to eat. The meat is usually very good, the soup very peppery and nice. I can't eat ribs anyware else now. Lime juice could be better
pork ribs and spare ribs

passable, but not the best

in itself, bak kut teh is a very strong-tasting soup with (hopefully-not-too-dry) pork ribs. the broth served up here is hot and strongly peppery, but I think a little too salty (though I find more bak kut tehs a little too salted for comfort), and slightly akin to what I boiled up from a packet*, while studying in london.   (*I haven’t yet decided if this is an insult or not.)   I’m more confident talking about the braised trotter, especially given my recent spate of pork-hunting – but it does probably matter a lot on how you like your meat. I prefer it soft and pink (that sort of cooked pink you’d recognise in expert barbecue), tender and flake-able, chewy but not tough, and no fat or sinew or skin (thanks very much, please).   over here, it’s a chopped up mass of meat and skin and fat – which makes it difficult to sieve through for the lean meat, and the flavor isn’t nearly as deep or as satisfying as the former. I still ate it, but there’s nothing quite like breaking down an entire trotter.   but what’s impressive here is the array of sides you can order with your bowl of rib soup and trotter. it’s more quantity than quality though.   the food is passable, but only just. it loses to founder bak kut teh, and both lose to the ang mo kio eng kee (no photos, but I’ll try next time!) – but it’ll work in a pinch for a craving.
