SongFa Bak Kut Teh, Clarke Quay

In Malaysia, Klang has always got their reputation as the best city to have your bak kut teh in the whole Malaysia. While in Singapore, there is no such city but instead there is a restaurant which are reputable enough to open a few branches in Singapore. If you are a Singaporean, you might know who I am talking about by now...yes, is SongFa Bak Kut Teh.

Xiang Ji Ji @S$5.00++...what a name for a tea. Makes me think of something else....lol!
Every table has this pot and tap to boil your own hot water with it. You are not allow to wash your hands here. Please do not do that because it is really disgusting when everyone do that and the sink surely smells very bad.
Braised Pork Intestine @S$6.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - I am not really like the way they braised the intestine. Prefer them to make them in the Bak Kut Teh hot pot together with other ingredients.

Pig's Stomach Soup @S$5.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - This is the best among all of them. Especially the soup, full of herbal taste and pig's stomach is so tangy and chewy to my liking.

Premium Loin Ribs @S$8.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - They has a normal pork ribs but I selected their premium one to see how premium it is. It is just a pork with more meat. Nothing so premium about to pay that much for.

Dough Fritter @S$2.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 0/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 1/5 - In my opinion about Bak Kut Teh, the first thing you must master is the soup. The second thing is the you tiau/dough fritter. Then only about the ingredients in the Bak Kut Teh. This is horrible! The you tiau is totally stale. I feel like eating flour!

Pig's Kidney Soup @S$6.00
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 0/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 1/5 - Horrible taste of kidney and horrible soup. I taste heavy blood taste in it. Ewww...

This is the branch that we visited. They have another branch at the same row which is located at the corner of the shop lots.
Here is their another branch at the corner. Same crowded restaurant. This has larger size than the one that I visited. Without a doubt that they are really famous. However, I feel that this is an over rated Bak Kut Teh restaurant. If they open a branch at Klang, probably those famous existing Bak Kut Teh restaurant at Klang such as Kedai Makanan Seng Huat Bakuteh will never take them seriously as their competitor.
