SongFa is a pretty famous restaurant from Singapore. It’s famous for its Singaporean style bak kut teh, which means prok rib soup. I like bak kut teh in Cantonese style with medical herbs and strong flavored broth, but SonFa is very different from what I’m used to.
Their soup is clear and very peppery, they also put a lot of garlic in the broth and makes it spicy and warm. You can tell it’s cooked for a long time and taste all the ingredient in every bite. They offers different type of meat to pair with the soup, including pork rib, prime pork rib, white fish, pig’s stomach, liver, and tail. I went with my colleagues after CNY holiday and they ordered almost everything. While some were too daring for me, I did try most of them and all were very tasty and tender. We also got youtiao(Chinese fried churros) and meesua (noodle) to eat with and both taste incredible. I love how juicy the youtiao gets after soaking in the broth. I believe the soup was served for one person, but they provide free refilled for the broth, which makes it easy to share with people.
We also ordered some side dishes, including vegetables and braised platter (egg, toufu and more pork).The vegetables taste fresh and crunchy, and the braised platter is savory and definitely a good complement to eat with the soup.
The soup cost around 56 RMB and side dishes are in between 10 to 30 RMB. The restaurant is in Kerry center and it’s very clean and modern. Great for the winter days like this in Shanghai!
One the side note, the venue in Kerry Center is quite small and crowded with limited seats. I would recommend it for a casual date or eat-alone-place.
*70RMB for one person.
*You'll get bowl of high quality soup with intense pepper/garlic falvor to warm up your body. The restaurant is quite crowded but has great services and friendly staffs. Definitly THE place to get authentic bak kut teh.
We couldn't find any current or previous events for this venue.
