Rainy days always make us crave for a hot and piping bowl of bak kut teh. I was having dinner at ABC Market last month and came across Sin Thor Eunos Bak Kut Teh Kway Chap. The full display of steamed fish got me curious, so I went back to try their food.

I met 70-year-old Uncle Tan Nee Tong at the stall and he was busy preparing all the dishes together with his assistant. His son was cooking the food at another outlet in Pasir Panjang and had just delivered them over.

Uncle Tan started the business in 1977. His kampong was at Fort Canning Hill and that’s where he learnt how to cook bak kut teh. Every morning, he will be at the stall by 3am to prepare the ingredients.

For one small hawker stall, they sell a lot of things. In the morning (7am to 2pm), they do kway chap. In the evening (5-9pm), they sell bak kut teh, trotter and steamed fish. Their Teochew-style bak kut teh is full of peppery flavours but they are not overpowering at all. The good combination of pepper, garlic, and fresh pork ribs makes the soup really fragrant and tasty. The pork ribs were so tender!
