Legendary Bak Kut Teh: One Of The Best Spots In SG

If there’s one dish that could combine my love for tea and pork ribs, it’s Bak Kut Teh, and Legendary Bak Kut Teh has one of the best in town.

Legendary Bak Kut Teh has two branches, one at Rangoon Road and another at South Bridge Road.

Space and Ambience

Legendary Bak Kut Teh has outdoor and indoor seating.

One notable thing you’ll notice upon entering the restaurant is the large number of photographs plastered across the restaurants’ windows and walls. They showcase pictures of the Legendary Bak Kut Teh’s owners and celebrities– a true testament to their dishes’ popularity within SG and the world.


The A2 Legendary Bak Kut Teh ($11.55) has a mixture of one long pork rib and two short ribs. The soup is rich in flavour from the abundant use of white pepper. The soup itself is thick yet not oily. I definitely had more than one refill of it. The ribs are meaty and tender enough to fall off the bone using your chopsticks.

The best thing to pair with Bak Kut Teh has to be the You-tiao ($2.50). The you-tiao is fluffy on the inside and super crispy on the outside. It’s also not oily.

The Salted Vegetable/Mei Cai ($5) has a satisfying crunch and the right saltiness. I would recommend this side dish along with the Bak Kut Teh soup and rice.

The Sesame oil chicken ($12) has a generous amount of chicken thighs that are juicy and tender. However, I find the ginger in the dish comes off too strong.

The Dou Miao ($10) is crunchy. The addition of garlic and mushrooms helps to elevate the plainness of the dish.

Overall I give Legendary Bak Kut Teh the following rating:

Food: 4.5/5

Space & Ambience: 4/5

Service: 3.5/5
