Founder Bak Kut Teh (Bugis) – New Outlet, New Items!
Comforting. Peppery. Rich. Garlicky. That is how a memorable bowl of Bak Kut Teh should be like. And when we are talking about the epitome of “soup for the soul”, you simply can’t miss out on Founder Bak Kut Teh, one of Singapore’s longstanding Teochew-style bak kut teh eateries. Expanding from their Balestier and Hotel Boss outlets, Founder Bak Kut Teh has set up a new branch in Bugis (conveniently located just across the street from Bugis Junction). Look forward to mouthwatering new dishes, which are exclusive to the Bugis outlet, to complete your BKT experience!
Nothing can be better than a bowl packed with amazing pork flavour enhanced by fragrant herbs and spices. Every bowl boasts of the freshest pork ribs, which is one of Founder Bak Kut Teh selling points. Don’t forget to dip your fried dough fritters into the broth to soak it up. That combination, just takes the cake. Even while presented with an entire table full of food, we still couldn’t resist finishing every piece of you tiao that’s completely soaked up the delicious broth.
Let’s dive straight into the exciting new items on the menu, shall we? The Steamed Cod Fish ($18.80) is the most eye-catching dish on the menu which comprises around 3 dozen options. The cod Is complemented by a traditional soy-sauce based sauce. The tender and sweet flesh of the cod is hard to resist, but do watch out for bones. We fell in love with the fresh slab of fish and this was easily one of our favourite items of the day.
I enjoyed the Trio Steamed Egg ($5.80) which consists of a simple egg custard graced with bits of salted egg and century egg which lent the dish extra creaminess and saltiness. The velvety smooth egg custard is bound to curry favour with all ages.
Here we have Crispy Prawn Rolls ($5.80/$10.80), commonly known as Ngoh Hiang. Adopted into many households and eateries, this dish shouldn’t be foreign to most of us. Minced meat and prawns are encased in a thin and crisp brown skin that carries the earthy taste of 5-spice powder. This is definitely a great side dish to go with your BKT.
The Steamed Minced Meat ($6.80) is another classic Chinese dish that is easy to prepare, but not easy to perfect. It’s close to the hearts of many, so if you love this dish but don’t get to savour it often, you might delight in the tasty rendition here. Expect a juicy, tender and moist meat “patty” that holds crunchy chestnuts chunks, laying in a flavourful sauce.
Founder BKT’s new outlet is situated in such a convenient location, so there’s nothing separating you and this quintessential Chinese dish. Perfect for any time, any day, this bowl of legitimate goodness will replenish your energy and rejuvenate your soul. You may wish to try out some of the crowd’s favourites such as Pig Trotters ($9.80/$12.80) and Braised Pig’s Intestines ($8.80/$11.80) as well. Quick! Gather your family and friends for a hearty meal at Founder Bak Kut Teh! Pssss there’s no service charge too!
