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.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
