amazing, savoy pork bone soup in clarke quay.Bak kut teh (肉骨茶), or literally translated "meat bone tea," is a traditional Chinese soup very popular in Singapore and Malaysia. Made of pork ribs, which are stewed in a broth of herbs for a long time, the resulting soup is rich, salty, and peppery.
Song Fa is quite famous in Singapore for their bak kut teh, and rightfully so--the soup here is amazing and the pork is incredibly tender and flavorful. Get some white rice to go with the soup and make sure to get some Chinese fried "donuts" too. While the fried donuts, aka oil stick or youtiao (油條), on their own are not good, soaked in the soup they are amazing.
While this might not sound like a typical breakfast item, it makes for a nice hearty breakfast. Or, if you'd rather, get it for lunch or dinner. Note that the line around lunch and dinner can get long.
