Rong Cheng Rou Gu Cha 榕城肉骨茶

Rong Cheng Rou Gu Cha is one of the stalls from the newly renovated Coffeeshop. If you are looking for peppery style Bak Kut Teh in Bukit Batok, look no further as they have been in the Bak Kut Teh industry for more than 50 years. If you heard of the popular Sin Ming Bak Kut Teh, you can enjoy it in the Western part too.

Stall of Rong Cheng Rou Gu Cha

Despite being a Teochew, I do not fancy my own dialect's style of Bak Kut Teh (BKT) as for those that I had tried was mostly peppery and overwhelming to my throat. Instead, all these while my preference will be towards the herbal style of BKT. Well, it seems like everything falls in place as it was a stormy day during my visit and these peppery bowls of soup will be of the right choices. We ordered both the signature Dragon and the normal pork ribs.

Meal Ordered

The Loin Ribs or better known as Dragon Ribs when translated from Mandarin 龙骨 is the largest rib bones from the pig.  The bone is longer and the texture of the meat is firmer. The soup was something out of my expectation as they were not as peppery that what I had thought initially. Instead, it was traditionally light flavoured with the natural taste of the pork with the use of both garlic and pepper to bring the taste out.

Signature Dragon Rib Soup 招牌龙骨汤 - $9

Sharing the same soup base with the Signature Dragon Rib Soup, their standard of meat are fall off the bone tender and with a clean flavour. With their standard of quality and serving, it is no wonder they live up to their namesake. When people talk about food in Sin Ming, Bak Kut Teh can never be missing from the list.

Pork Rib Soup 肉骨茶 - $6.50

Fried Fritters aka You Tiao is always my add on side dish whenever we have Bak Kut Teh. These fritters just taste so good being soaked in the Bak Kut Teh Soup.
