I was crushed when my favourite Bak Kut Teh store along Upper Serangoon Road closed down. So I was full of anticipation when Old Street Bak Kut Teh opened its doors in Nex. I craved that familiar fragrant soup which could always make me feel at home, and I wasn’t disappointed.
My go-to Set A ($11.10) comes with a bowl of rice, bak kut teh, beancurd and you tiao (fried dough sticks). There is a free flow of glorious soup, so you can always ask for a refill anytime you’re craving for more of that piping hot broth. The staff members are also responsive and efficient, making it a very pleasant dining experience.
With several outlets popping up all across Singapore, finding some affordable bak kut teh with generous heaps of herbs and spices has never been easier. The next time you start to miss grandma’s cooking, you know where to go!
This store recently opened right at the Serangoon MRT exit in Nex, and the bold Chinese characters declaring ‘Bak Kut Teh. You Tiao. Beancurd.’ instantly made me curious. Being a pretty big fan of Bak Kut Teh myself, I dragged my friend in to give it a try.
The staff were helpful, guiding us on how to order and where to get our utensils. To order, you had to pull open a drawer which holds the menu on an iPad, which I found amusing since the stall was themed like an old shophouse. But wow, their set meals are really value-for-money! I ordered Set A ($8.50), which included Bak Kut Teh, Rice, Beancurd and You Tiao. Their Bak Kut Teh was served in a clear, peppery broth, the kind that I love.
Though the set was affordable, I didn’t have the stomach for it. If you’re in for some peppery Bak Kut Teh, drop by with an empty stomach, and be prepared to be filled to the brim!
