Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha - 欧南园亚华肉骨茶


Located at the south of Singapore near CBD area, one can actually find this shop quite easily. Introducing the best Bak Kut Teh in Singapore invention. Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha. There are 2 type of  Bak Kut Teh, differentiate by the colour of the soup base, either white or black soup. This shop sell the white soup base. White soup base are Teochew's cooking style, taste more peppery, while the black soup base are more towards herbal direction, Hokkiens style. The soup is made from boiling Pork Bones with garlic and pepper.

Menu - I manage to take a shot

Fried Dough Stick - What are this for?? To dip into the soup and you can choose to eat it hard with the soup or let the dough soften and eat it soft, tasting the full juicy taste of the soup.

Spare ribs 

The soup serve here is very good. It has a sweet savory and peppery taste. Savory that comes from boiling the pork bones, peppery and not over powering. The ribs are cooked until the meat texture are tendering nice and full of flavour too. Try eating the rice with some of the soup, the rice just taste wonderful. Good news to all, the soup are refillable. You can just request for refill as long as you can finish them. I simply just request the soup to be fill up in my bowl of rice. YUMMY!!

I will recommend to select lean spare ribs as the meat are more tender and the proportion of the fats are lesser. Of cause, one can choose to have the fatty spare ribs. Up to individual choice. 
I also like the braised peanuts here. It is soft and sweet with the skin still being intact. 

Braised pig intestine - The intestine are clean properly, you can hardly find any foul tasting texture after chewing one bit. The intestine are braised in dark soy sauce and herbals, you can taste Anise which can cover any dis-likable favour. 

Salted Vegetables - Typical Teochew dish. The vegetables are not very salty, just at the right amount. The vegetables are crunchy too. It is best to eat with rice.

Braised Pig Trotters -  Soft and tender, the meat and fats simply melts in you mouth when you put a piece of the meat into your mouth. The braised sauce is a bit sweet, making one to eat more and more. This is definitely a must to order dish. 

Braised Tau Pok - Beancurd which is flattish and square with a brown, wrinkled skin and soft, spongy interior. The Tau Pok are cooked in dark soy sauce, not over cook and the texture is soft and chewy.

Chye Sim - Nice, fresh and crunchy. No argument on this dish

Mee Sua - Soft and tender texture, eating with the soup, you can actually find that the soup taste differently from the pork rib soup. One soup but different eating styles. I think the contributing factor is the fried onions that are added to the Mee Sua. Bringing the taste of the soup to a different level.

Good tasting Bak Kut Teh with great service to too. Staffs are polite and attentive to customer's needs. They are prompt to refill your soup. Food are served fast too. Simply no delay. Boss are around to help out too, and do not put up any air around him. Good food, great service. Simply wonderful combination!!
