Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh: This bak kut teh will make you sweat!
MUST TRIES: Bak kut teh, tang orh and tau kwa
A meal at Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh often turns out to be an enthusiastic and sweaty affair. For the uninitiated, bak ku teh is a pork rib dish, where ribs are simmered in a broth of herbs and spices for hours.
At Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh, the bak kut teh broth is always piping hot and the pork ribs tender. And frankly, that’s enough to seal the deal for any decent bak kut teh specialist.
Gwee Peck Hua, owner of this bak kut teh stall, was apparently the right hand woman of Ng Ah Sio’s father. And most bak kut teh lovers would know that Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh is one of the most famous bak kut teh outlets in Singapore.
Ya Hua’s version comes in two variations — a serving of spare ribs at S$6 (more bone than meat) or a serving of prime ribs (with more tender meat) for S$7. The meat was fresh, tender and tasty for both of types of ribs.
But the real star of this stall is the peppery and aromatic teh (soup). The soup was perfect for us; it was hot and peppery, so spicy that it cleared our sinus immediately. It was also very addictive — we had two rounds of refill! Our only complaint was that it was slightly oily.
