Whether you’re Team Pepper or Herbal, the bak kut teh at Joo Siah Bak Koot Teh is worth trying. With over 30 years of history, the Michelin Bib Gourmand stall offers Teochew-style BKT in a casual setting. Sink your teeth into the Premium Loin Ribs Soup ($9), which features two long and meaty pork ribs steeping in a potent, peppery broth. This signature dish is only available before lunch though, so best to get here early! Those who love braised meat should try their Braised Pork Belly (from $6), which sits in a rich lor that has been painstakingly boiled for hours.

Familiar favourites are the Png Kueh ($1.40) and Soon Kueh ($1.10). To help cope with rising inflation, a minimum order of two pieces is required if you’re dining in, while the requirement is increased to five pieces, if you want to take away these handmade kueh in a box.
