Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup: Highly Addictive

Start your day right with a bowl hot steaming Bah Kut Teh from the famous Ng Ah Sio stall. As early as 6 a.m. in the morning, you'd be surprised to see crowds bustling at this eatery.

Situated at Rangoon Road (near CTE), it wasn't exactly the most accessible spot unless you have your own private transportation. Of course you could always walk from Farrer Park MRT or take a bus in (if you know the way), but most of the customers here were often families and regulars from the older generation (we're an exception).

Service here was speedy and efficient. The moment you got your butts seated, Ng Ah Sio's staff would come over to you with a PDA in their hands, ready to take your order anytime. And within a few minutes, your order (once entered into their system) would be sent straight to your table hot from the kitchen. Thereafter, the bill would also come along, printed nicely and inserted into a black bill holder, those typical ones you would encounter in a restaurant.

Pork Ribs Soup

Pork Ribs Soup,   S$5.50+ (+ S$2 You Tiao, +S$2 Tea),   

Bah Kut (pork ribs) were so tender - one bite and everything slipped off from the bone. The soup was a huge pepperish sensation, which would send spicy tingles to your taste buds. And as you drain the soup to the last bit, you could actually find garlic and crushed peppercorns residue at the bottom. One bowl surely wouldn't be enough, and the good news is, the soup was free flow.

Best companions to along with the Pork Ribs Soup were none other than traditional Teh (tea) and You Tiao (deep fried dough sticks). There are six different types of Chinese tea for you to choose from, and we ordered the Xiao Yue Gan - soothing to the after effects of the pepperish soup.

It was the "Lao Zi Hao" (old brand name) that Ng Ah Sio carried, which kept them maintaining their food quality and thriving business. We recalled when we were kids, our parents used to bring us here, and we would always stick out our tongues and fan them wearing a frown on our faces, because we couldn't take the spciyness. Now, this Ng Ah Sio had becomed one of our personal favourite Bah Kut Teh stalls.
