My friend told me that this stall sells good 'Bak Ku Teh' and has an almost signature hot spicy peppery 'Bak Ku' Soup. I have always preferred 'Bak Ku Teh' that are of a much peppery taste, thus i purposely made my way down to Jurong East and try them out.
Hidden in a hawker centre in Jurong East, this shop was located at the circumferences of the hawker centre. So, one simply needs to walk round that hawker centre and you will be able to locate this store. It should be considered as one of the biggest 'Bak Ku Teh' store in that entire hawker center as it occupies two shop spaces instead of a normal one.
They have quite a few certificates (makansutra, where the queue starts, etc) pasted on the store, this indirectly indicate that their 'Bak Ku Teh' would be of a certain standard. Of course, this had also increase my expectation on this store.
Their varieties found on the menu was pretty similar compared to other 'Bak Ku Teh' store. Beside pork ribs, it also have intestines and pork trotters. The 'Bak Ku Teh' comes in two different portion and starts from 4 bucks for the smalles portion.
I ordered the smallest portion of the 'Bak Ku Teh' and it comes with three pork ribs. This portion was pretty similar as compared to other 'Bak Ku Teh' store. However, i find that their pork ribs were bit too small and have much fats in them. Perhaps, pork ribs with fats would made the 'Bak Ku Teh' more tasty but still, i would prefer those of a leaner pork.
As for the 'Bak Ku' soup, it was indeed peppery, however this peppery taste may be too much for those who cannot accept spicy stuffs. Combined with the garlic, it forms a pretty tasty soup overall. But still, i wish that the garlic taste would be bit stronger. :)
They were pretty generous when it comes to refilling the 'Bak Ku' soup where they would refill it up to the rim of the bowl. Although, they only refill the 'Bak Ku' soup for once, they are still willing to refill the soup for me when i asked for the second time. Pretty customer oriented in this case.
Hidden in a corner of a market in the western regions of Singapore is a small Bak Kut Teh gem, going by the name of Joo Siah. Set up by an engineer who was retrenched by his employer some 20 odd years ago and learnt his trade from his brother in law (who owns a popular bak kut teh stall in Sin Ming), Joo Siah has grown to operating out of 3 units in the market and sells close to 100kg of ribs each day - certainly no small feat.
$4.50 gets you a bowl of steaming hot bak kut teh with 3 pieces of bak kut and a bowl of rice. I was initially aiming for the more expensive loin ribs but was promptly informed that those were only available in the morning. The dough fritters were sold out as well. Nonetheless, the meat on the ribs were tender and moist, soaking in the goodness of the extremely peppery soup that was flavourful and light on the palate. I did think that the amount of pepper was an overkill though, almost numbing my senses and overwhelming the inherent bak kut taste. Overall a good eat and I'll definitely be back.
