Sheng Fa Bak Kut Teh [CLOSED]
This place is closed.
The quest for my bak kut teh adventure continues. And this time, I visited Sheng Fa Bak Kut Teh at Havelock Road!
Opened by David and his partner, Ken, both of them decided to venture into business because of their love for bak kut teh. David’s father used to own a bak kut teh stall, so he used to help him out when he was young.
But because they have to move, his dad decided to close the shop and David went into technician line. But he wanted to do business, so his uncle, who is the owner of Founders Bak Kut Teh offered him to work in the kitchen to learn the skills, so that’s where he picked it up again. And after staying in Founders for about a year, he decided to venture start his own bak kut teh business.
We skipped the normal version of the Pork Ribs Soup ($6/pax), and go for the premium Spare Ribs Soup ($8/pax). First sip of the clear soup, it is robust, peppery, and you get the sweet after taste. Then I dived into the prime ribs. Its over 10cm long pork ribs is tender, not that fatty.
We also had a bowl of Pig’s Kidney Soup ($7/pax). I like how the medium-rare kidney retained its tinge of pink, and the robust flavour of the kidney.
Braised Pig’s Trotters ($7/pax) has well balanced flavours and not too salty. It goes well with a bowl of rice.
Braised Pig’s Intestines ($6/pax) is the ultimate winner. I never really like to order pig’s intestines when I eat bak kut teh because a typical bowl will contain the lor (sauce) and pig’s intestines, which is nothing special. But Sheng Fa’s Pig’s Intestines is worth trying because they added fried shallots, raw garlic and fried garlic into the lor (sauce) which gives it a nice aroma and flavour. The pig intestines is wonderfully smooth and tender, yet chewy in texture.
We also ate the Salted Vegetables ($2 small) and Braised Dao Gi ($2 small).
A good bowl of bak kut teh especially for cold weather. With delicious and unlimited soup, good pig’s intestines, Bak Kut Teh in Sheng Fa Bak Kut Teh will satisfy most of the fans of Bak Kut Teh. There is no GST and service charge.
