Joo Siah Bak Koot Teh

If you are talking about Jurong East Yuhua Hawker Centre Food, Joo Siah Bak Kooth Teh is no stranger to anyone who stay around the vicinity. In 2015, they were relocated from the 2 stalls of the Hawker Center to a near by coffee shop which is just a stone throw away.

The soup base is a Teochew Classic Style of White Pepper Style. Despite being a Teochew, I'm not a fan of peppery Bak Kut Teh but I would say that Joo Siah Bak Koot Teh is not overly peppery. Its soup has a good depth and slight pepper.

Our Dinner
We were given the choice to mix sides dishes. Preserved Vegetables strike a good balance of saltiness and sweetness without being too oily. Tau Ki too.
Preserved Vegetables & Tau Ki (Mixed) - $2
Too bad the main item (Pork Ribs) that we wanted to order has sold out. Order the innards as they are all cleanly prepared and not overcook. Soup is refillable with request from them.

Fen Chang - $5.50 , You Tiao - $1, Lean Meat - $5.50
Even the meat is tender and generous portions were given in the bowl.

 As compared to their former location in Hawker Centre, I find that the current location is better as it is not so stuffy. There are alot of chain outlets BKT in the west especially in malls. However if you are looking for quality and a more economical BKT, you may want to consider Joo Siah.
