Tuan Yuan Pork Ribs Soup – How Successful is Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh’s Descendant?
Owned by the children of Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh, Tuan Yuan unites “reunion” and “fate”, and this is exactly what they are about. They hope that customers will enjoy a special dining experience, that promotes togetherness as they savour authentic Teochew Bak Kut Teh. The restaurant interior and friendly service staff made us feel very welcomed. The menu includes Tuan Yuan pork ribs soup, pork liver soup, pork kidney soup, steamed fish, an array of vegetables and side dishes.
Tuan Yuan Pork Ribs Soup ($7) packs a good peppery punch, with flavours enhanced by the large cloves of old garlic. Only quality ingredients like fresh pork from Indonesia, Sarawak white pepper and old garlic are used. Pork bones are boiled for hours, resulting in the full-bodied broth. Do you know, a light-coloured pork flesh means the pork is fresh, as compared to those that are dark or reddish? The ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender, hence very easy to eat.
For a complete, hearty bak kut teh meal, order the Classic Tri-Mix ($6) which consists of braised peanuts, braised soy knots (tau kee) and salted vegetables. These go very well with rice! Also, don’t forget to order the Fried Dough Stick ($1.50) which is superb when dunked into the heartwarming broth.
As Tuan Yuan is about reunion and gatherings, bigger groups can go for Tuan Yuan’s steamed fishes. Diners can choose from steamed threadfin fish tail (teochew style), grey mullet, and baby grey threadfin. We shared a Steamed Threadfin Body ($15) prepared in Teochew style. The meat is very fresh, with a tinge of sweetness. The gravy complements the fish, while the tomatoes accentuate its sweetness.
Tuan Yuan Pork Ribs Soup is not just a good place for rainy days. We will patronise whenever we have a gathering with friends and family to enjoy comforting bowls of peppery broth in a homely environment.
