Bak kut teh (literally "pork bone tea") is a popular Singaporean dish made by simmering pork ribs in a broth flavored with fragrant peppercorns, garlic chunks and Chinese medicinal herbs. It's the tasty specialty of the house here at this cheerful basement dining spot, where they also serve soup curry and a number of other budget-friendly Singaporean dishes.
A bowl of ribs in broth costs Y980 and comes in either boneless or boned versions, with rice, noodles or fried bread on the side. Take-out service is also available, for an extra Y200.
