Crown Prince Kitchenette Bak Kut Teh has claypot BKT in Changi
If you reside in the East, bookmark this spot for your next family dinner. Crown Prince Kitchenette Bak Kut Teh is a new restaurant in Changi Airport Terminal 3 that specialises in Teochew-style bak kut teh, claypot bak kut teh and many more!
Helmed by 70-year-old Chef Ah Peng, who boasts over 50 years of culinary experience, the casual eatery specialises in old-school Teochew bak kut teh soup and claypot dry bak kut teh, alongside a few other comfort dishes.
Crown Prince Kitchenette Bak Kut Teh is tucked away on the third floor of the terminal—it’s fairly under the radar at the moment as its location isn’t the most obvious.
A must-order is the Dried Bak Kut Teh ($15++) served in a sizzling hot claypot.
You get a generous portion of pork ribs coated in a sticky, sweet-savoury sauce that’s packed with umami notes from dried cuttlefish and shrimp.
It pairs excellently with a side of Pig’s Stomach Mee Sua ($9++), soaked in a peppery Teochew-style bak kut teh broth. You can even top up $2++ to get extra pig’s liver, pig’s stomach, or lean meat, if you wish.
You can’t miss out on the Loin Ribs ($9++) too, served in the same clear BKT soup. We found the meat less tender than expected, but the broth was just the right balance of garlicky and peppery.
If you’re visiting in a group, zhng up your meal with the Claypot Chinese Wine Chicken ($12++) that comes with a full-bodied, heavy gravy.
Alternatively, the Traditional Assam Fish ($8.80++)—a whole mackerel doused in a tangy assam sauce—is another worthy pick.
Whatever you do, don’t leave without trying their house-made Hae Bee Hiam ($6++), painstakingly cooked with dried shrimp and chilli for a deliciously smoky, umami, and not-too-spicy kick. This sambal paired extremely well with every dish we tried; it was so good we suggested that they have it bottled and sold!
The restaurant offers a mix of cosy booth seats and round tables for communal dining. Save this place for the next time you’re looking for legit bak kut teh in Changi with the fam!
If you find yourself in Terminal 1 instead, try out Woke Ramen, which offers Singapore’s first wok hei collagen ramen. Otherwise, venture to Jewel to check out Nesuto, a homegrown patisserie that has just opened a chio cafe with IG-worthy cakes.
