I tried their normal bak kut teh and the braised pork trotters/intestines combination. I do not mind their bak kut teh but I was terribly disappointed with the pork trotters/intestines combination. The pork trotters portion only had skin and fats with no meat to talk...More

Recommended by our hotel, this was the surprise stand out of our food in Singapore. Loin rib soup was absolutely fantastic. Good service, great price. Highly recommended. Word of warning: If you don't eat pork don't go there - there are absolutely no non-pork options....More

If you're craving for some clear-peppery-soup bak kut teh, Song Fa is a good choice. They serves Singapore's style bak kut teh. If you come during lunch or dinner time, please be prepare for the queue. But it's definitely worth the wait.

You really only come for the pork rib soup - the comfort soup can be really addictive. The pork rib was fine. They refill your soup readily and if you see a lull in that it's possibly they are preparing a fresh lot. The service...More

The restaurant is well managed and service is general smooth and efficient. Ordered the premium pork rib soup; pork leg and intestine. The soup was tasty and was topped up readily by the waitresses. However, I find the pork not quite tender for premium ribs....More

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.

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.
