Interesting taste and flavor. Mid range budget. They will keep pouring soup into the bowl until your done. The queue is long but it moves pretty fast. Worth it if you like pork.

You knpw you are in for a good feast when (1) you have tp line up; (2) all the locals are here; and (3) everyone has ordered the exact same dish. The taste was very peppery and not too herbally and delicious. Worth coming here. You are paying for the meat and soup is unlimited refills.

Do yourself a favor and get over to Song FA Bak Kut Teh, either at its Chinatown Point location or any of the others located in Singapore. You're in for a treat. They specialize in Bak Kut Teh, simple short ribs in a clear and surprisingly peppery brother. During my visit I tried the regular short ribs and the "premium"... More

I had many Bak Kut Teh in my trip in Singapore, this was by far the most delicious. The meat was, of course, juicy and tender but the broth is amazing. And free refills too - win! Fast friendly service. It was soo good I had to go back a second time and bought some of the tea bags to... More

Johor Road, Singapore, year 1969 - Beads of perspiration gathered at Yeo Eng Song's brow as he served another bowl of piping hot Bak Kut Teh to the table beside his pushcart stall. The Bak Kut Teh is running out, the founder of Song Fa thought. It is time to retrieve his meats from the chiller at his friend's liquor stall down the road....

And so, these were the humble beginnings of Song Fa Bak Kut Teh.

Today, while we do not operate from a pushcart anymore, our iconic pushcart embodies our belief to bring you an original Bak Kut Teh dining experience where you can enjoy our fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs and flavourful, peppery, spice-infused hot broth in an elaborate 1960s' roadside dining atmosphere.

It is at Song Fa, where one can relive the heritage of good old Bak Kut Teh in it's truest sense.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
