You get to place your order first while queueing and what I like about this place is once you get assigned to your seats, the food will be served to you within just a few minutes. This is what I called efficiency. Song Fa Bak...More

Well, I’ve never eaten feet and insides before, so this was a bit outside my comfort zone. Unless you know what you are doing, stick with the ribs! Line was a mile long, so it must be the real thing. They were nice to us,...More

Was very busy but service was fast and efficient. Not a lot of choice on menu but enough for a quick bite. Braised pork belly was lovely. Cheap and cheerful.

Omg, I tried few Bak Kit Teh in Singapore, and this is definitely the most of the most, the meat was soft and soup was tasty with black pepper favours. Not expensive at all. Free refill of soup, eat those meats with chilli soy sauce.

No doubt the bak kut teh is good (though not exceptional) and even at 1.30pm on a weekday, we had to queue for a table. However, the service is as bad as the food is good, the guy at the door won’t greet or even...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

Johor Road, Singapore, year 1969 - Beads of perspiration gathered at Yeo Eng Song's brow as he served another bowl of piping hot Bak Kut Teh to the table beside his pushcart stall. The Bak Kut Teh is running out, the founder of Song Fa thought. It is time to retrieve his meats from the chiller at his friend's liquor stall down the road....

And so, these were the humble beginnings of Song Fa Bak Kut Teh.

Today, while we do not operate from a pushcart anymore, our iconic pushcart embodies our belief to bring you an original Bak Kut Teh dining experience where you can enjoy our fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs and flavourful, peppery, spice-infused hot broth in an elaborate 1960s' roadside dining atmosphere.

It is at Song Fa, where one can relive the heritage of good old Bak Kut Teh in it's truest sense.
