Bak Kut Teh

Literally, this place sells meat bone tea or pork ribs soup. Unlike the ordinary tea that is usually sweet or bitter, in this place,a tea means a soup with savory flavor. The history of this place is quite interesting. Some stories tell that the place came up with the idea based on a true event. One day, a starving beggar came by and begs for food. Instead of making the beggar leave, the owner who was also in poverty made a cheap soup for the beggar. He cooked leftover pork bones and added cheap spices to the pot. The flavor was unpredictably amazing. That was the story behind the pork bone tea recipe. However, some other history states that the tea was a tonic invented by the Chinese coolies. We can buy the besdfsst Bak Kut Teh at Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh. The restaurant is located at 7 Keppel Road, #01-05/07, PSA Tanjong Pagar Complex, Singapore 089053 (closed on Mon).
