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.

I was part of a HGW food tasting party. I have not been to Connexis during weekday day time but I guess most of the shop patrons will be folks working around the area. Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh is found on the 2nd floor at the end of a narrow walk way, tucked in a corner.
 
 The BKT served is the peppery type and a variety of soup dishes are offered, all served in the same peppery...

I had the opportunity recently to try Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh. This old school eatery serves out both the lean and fatty portions of the rib together with a slightly spicy broth.
 
In addition, the place also serves out pig stomach, liver, and intestines, usual items that pair well with the pork bone soup.
 
An interesting must try here is the smoked duck breast. It is rare that a bak kut teh stall serves such a dish...
