Established since the 1950s, Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup Eating House has long been recognized as one of the best bak kut teh places in Singapore. This famous eating house has a loyal following for its Teochew-style bak kut teh. Besides its signature bak kut teh, Ng Ah Sio also serves a selection of pig-related dishes such as blanched pig liver, blanched pig kidney, pig tail, braised pig intestine, braised pig skin and braised pig trotter.


  • The strongest flavour of peppery bak kut teh soup in Singapore: The peppery soup at Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup Eating House is definitely the best option for those who love the typical flavour of Teochew-style bak kut teh. You just need to sip some spoons of soup to feel a peppery blast. The good combination of pepper, garlic and fresh pork ribs in its ingredients makes the soup really fragrant and tasty.
  • A place to enjoy kung fu tea: Definitely, bak kut teh and tea are a perfect match, so you can’t miss out tea during your bak kut teh time. And it is even better if tea is enjoyed in a special way like fung fu tea as it helps maximize the tea and meat tastes.

You can find fried you tiao (S$2.50), salted vegetables (S$3.50), braised peanuts (S$3), tau kua pok (S$3), blanched lettuce (S$5.50), tang-o (S$5.50) and blanched xiao bai cai (S$5.50) on the menu. Among them, fried you tiao and salted vegetables are mostly wanted.

ATMOSPHERE: Ng Ah Sio eating house may fill you with nostalgia. This kind of feeling often goes well with this kind of food – something traditional. The place is packed during its opening hours, so you will find there a typical ambience of a hawker place.

MINUS POINT: Regarding bak kut teh, the quality of the pork ribs is as highly expected as the soup; however, the pork ribs at Ng Ah Sio are quite tough and seem not to meet the expectation of bak kut teh fans for some time.
