This quite famous Bak Kut Teh stall, which is just a stone’s throw away from the other more famous Bak Kut Teh stall (Ng Ah Sio) has certainly got its share of fans. And I suspect that they might even had new fans coming across from the recently renovated Ng Ah Sio, which has now lost a lot of its authenticity since they were bought over by Jumbo. Somehow, eating Bak Kut Teh in a run down coffeeshop still has its charms.
For those who don’t like their Bak Kut Teh with a peppery kick, Heng Heng might just be your less abrasive alternative. The soup here is sweeter than what you would expect of a Bak Kut Teh with strong hints of cinnamon and star anise. The meat is nice but you will need good incisors to bite into them as they can dislodge ill fitting dentures. While we we sitting there, we noticed that there were a lot of people ordering steamed fish which we missed ordering. I came away with the niggling feeling as if I just walked out of Disneyland without seeing Mickey Mouse. 4/5
This Bak Kut Teh is good for those who prefer Jazz to Heavy Metal. The soup is smooth and sweet and not as peppery as other places. It’s not cheap though, we ended up paying more than $30 for three pots of Bak Kut Teh, one Teh Kah, some chye bueh and you tiao.
Has anyone here tried their Abalone version?
