The originating roots of "Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh" can be traced back all the way to the 1920s, when our founding grandfather, Mr Chua Ah Hua migrated to
Singapore or Nanyang in search of a better life and fortune for his family. When Mr Chua arrived in Singapore, Bak Kut Teh was already being served by
the Teochews around Char Jung Tao (Clarke Quay).
In the early days, Ah Hua started work as a coolie (manual labourer) and he discovered that by consuming his favorite Bak Kut Teh soup regularly in
the morning, he found the energy boost he needed for his back breaking work of unloading sacks of rice off the sampans. His interest in this dish soon led him to find pulpilage as a kitchen apprentice at a well known Teo Chew Bak Kut Teh stall owned by his village elder, Uncle Rong.
As the years gone by, the young Ah Hua grew in culinary skills and experience under the discipleship of Uncle Rong. What truly impressed Uncle Rong was the hard work and dedication displayed by Ah Hua in his personal goal to perfect the culinary art of Bak Kut Teh.
In Uncle Rong's own words, the highest level of culinary success is when Bak Kut Teh becomes a dish prepared "using your own heart and soul". Before the late Uncle Rong passed away, he named Ah Hua his personal successor and together with the younger Ah Hua, they went on to develop their very own unique blend of popular pork ribs' soup recipe, which eventually went on to be known as Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh.
Me and some friends spotted this newly opened restaurant @ Fusionopolis and decided to try it out. The Place - has a really nice ambiance with a classic theme design. Tables & chairs are placed properly allowing comfortable sitting. The Food - Pork Ribs Soup, Smoke Duck & Salted Vegetables is a must try. Enjoyed the well tendered pork ribs with the peppery flavored soup. Really feel and taste the high quality ingridients that was used on the dishes. The Service - fast and was very good, food arrived not too long after we were seated. Even without asking we were offered soup refills. Nice and well accomodating staffs. Overall, it was a very good experience and looking forward to visit again to try the other dishes.
I was there at the branch at Fusionopolis for lunch. Almost to the end of my meal, I found a mesh wire (the silver colored) in my soup. I notified the staff and they took a while before deciding to change the soup. By then I have lost my appetite and decided to leave. While I was about to leave, the staff told me that they were thinking of giving me a complimentary 'gui ling kao' as compensation.
Well, if you are really apologetic then at least apologize and as whether we could proceed to change the soup or replace it with other items but they didn't. My French colleague was commenting that they should at least give us a refund. Well, I would never ever go back to this restaurant ANYMORE!
