Founder Bak Kut Teh Restaurants in Singapore

There are two Founder Bak Kut Teh restaurants in Singapore to choose from, including one outlet within Downtown East (1 Pasir Ris Close).

Established by Mr Chua Chwee Whatt in the 1970s, the restaurant has a reputation as one of the places to go for the best Bak Kut Teh in Singapore.

Behind the restaurant’s success in terms of their signature dish has been an insistence in using only the freshest meaty pork ribs, simmered in a specially formulated broth of herbs and spices.

In fact, the broth is created using a proprietary recipe that has been perfected over the years.

Flagship outlet for the restaurant chain is located in Balestier (operated by the founder’s son), and the company also has locations in Hangzhou (China), Jakarta (Indonesia), Taipei (Taiwan), as well as Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam).

If you like the flavour of the signature offering, you can purchase specially formulated spices via the official website.

The spices are a secret blend that let the natural sweetness of the meat shine through and ensure that each bowl of Bak Kut Teh is aromatic and intensely flavourful.

You can find the restaurant‘s current menu and prices on the official website.
