Food Review: Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh


Since 1973, Founder Madam Gwee Peck Hua has lived and breathed pork ribs soup. Together with her sister, Gwee Guek Hua, both sisters worked tirelessly to perfecting the recipe for the finest bowl of Teochew-style Bak Kut Teh, at a stall in River Valley Road.

Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh has its humble beginnings in Outram Park estate, one of the first HDB estates in Singapore. When the land was reacquired by the government in 1995, Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh shifted to its current premises at Havelock Road. In 2006, due to overwhelming demand, Madam Gwee and her sister Guek Hua opened another branch at Keppel Road.

I went to try out their kovan outlet with my family.

Chinese Tea - 

Pork Ribs Soup - 

The broth was light and flavorful. But it wasn't peppery enough. The pork meat wasn't tender enough too as we find it was a little bit too dry.

Pig Liver and Kidney soup - 

The liver and kidney was cooked still soft and chewy. The broth taste slightly different from the pork ribs soup as the liver and kidney enhanced the pork ribs soup taste.

Pork Trotters - 

The gravy wasn't flavorful too, it was lacking of flavor and spies. We feel that the gravy was on the bland side. The meat wasn't tender enough too. It should boil longer.

Food: 0.25/5
Ambiance: 1/5
Service: 1/5

My Verdict:
This bak kut teh restaurant we will only try once and definitely won't be back again!! We still prefer "Song Fa Bak Kut Teh".
