we went at 11am on a thursday & roadside parking was a breeze. there were 2 outlets closeby each other – no. 11 north bridge road which was a coffeshop & no. 17 north bridge road. we chose the latter which was aircon though it was not switched on. we left before 12pm & the crowd were only starting to arrive.

soup was good. the prime ribs were very sweet & tasty. texture was good too, falling off the bones & yet not overcooked. my favourite until recently was rong cheng at sin min road. lately had couple times good baukteh at ng ah sio @ chui huay lim. i thought song fa was better, and price-wise we had 3 long prime ribs for S$8.50+GST vs 2 for S$9.80++ at ng ah sio & S$7 for 1 long rib plus 2 odd bits at rong cheng. the braised trotters were good too & we ordered a second S$6 serving. the fatty collagen bits were just right & even the lean parts were tasty & not sinewy. still i thought it was as good or better at ng ah sio & i had better serving portion for S$8++ shared by 2.

we had 3 prime ribs, 2 braised trotters, 1 youtiao & 1 kailan (medium S$5.50). total price came to S$48, couldn’t say it was expensive but not cheap either. i often buy 1kg pork rib at chinatown for S$7.50 & make very nice bakuteh myself very easily – not quite comparable of course but good enough for my fix. 🙂
