Bak Kut Teh, literally translated as "Meat Bone Tea", is a dish well known to many Singaporeans. What appears to be a humble dish which coolies used to take as a form of nourishment for their back-breaking work, has transformed into a dish adored by Singaporeans from all walks of life.
Bak Kut Teh is so famous that it has become a must-try dish for every tourist, including international celebrities and dignitaries who visit Singapore. Nestled in the streets of Balestier, we have a row of shops selling Bak Kut Teh. One shop in particular, Founder Bak Kut Teh Restaurant, managed to stand out from the rest. The snake-like queues during lunch-time peak hours are a testament of how good their Bak Kut Teh really is.
