I’ve visited Seletar Mall a couple of times since it opened a couple of months ago. And it is quite common to see a queue outside Song Fa Bak Kut Teh and I cannot imagine why. Don’t people enjoy their bak kut teh at Geylang or some kopitiam by the road? Why would anyone queue (long queues, by the way) for bak kut teh in a rather fancy shopping mall?
Today, we managed to pop in for an early dinner before watching Ah Boys To Frogmen. And I have to say that the food here is decent. Not mind-blowingly awesome so I cannot explain the queues either. But the best part about the meal is that you get complimentary unlimited top-ups of the soup. And there’s no service charge when dining here too. 🙂
We ordered the bak kut teh you see above. The bowl with more ingredients is his. I like my bak kut teh plain and simple. And we had a additional dish of kai lan too.
The feedback I received from one of my facebook fans (whom I believe stays in the Western part of SG) is that the soup is oily. I had no such issue with the soup at this particular outlet in Seletar Mall. The soup was addictive (not sure if it is MSG or just salt) and not too spicy (doesn’t have that pepper-ish kick you get from bak kut teh elsewhere). But I did not find it oily. Another fan commented that she’d head to the Changi outlet though I know she doesn’t stay too far from this mall. LOL!
Ok, so the point is that I’ll have to try Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at their other outlets before I can decide whether I’d recommend my friends from overseas to dine with them.
This meal cost us S$22.80 (including the 40cents we were charged for the wet tissue packets they placed on every table).
And if you’d like to check out the menu and pricing, I have taken a picture of their menu too.
You are welcome…
