Old Street Bak Kut Teh (Kallang Wave Mall)

Old Street Bak Kut Teh is a prime example of how using technology can reduce the need for manpower. Orders are made using the iPad which is attached to your table. The menu is clear and easy to understand. 

This place is the Chinese equivalent of McDonalds- the food came within 5 minutes of placing our orders. 

We ordered Set A ($11.10) which consisted of bak kut teh, you tiao, rice and beancurd. The servers were friendly and kept coming by to refill our soup, which was light but I wished contained more flavour and pepper.

You might have thought, if the service was so fast, they had probably left the you tiao lying there for quite some time so that it can be delivered to the tables quickly. Contrary to that expectation, the generous portion of you tiao was crispy when it arrived. The tender pork tore off easily from the bone and tasted even better when it was dipped in the black sauce with chilli padi.

We ended off the very filling meal with a bowl of silky beancurd.

An affordable and filling option if you want to eat bak kut teh, although I would have preferred a more intense soup base.
