Despite its less than accessible location, this famed Bak Kut Teh chain restaurant along Keppel Road is still the go-to supper spot for many. It opens till 3am daily, and nothing comes close to warming your tummy (and soul) better than a hot bowl of tasty, peppery soup. Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang describes the broth to be robust in flavour yet peppery enough to give you that kick! Swing by early in the night to have their popular Spare Ribs Soup (from $8); otherwise go for Tastemaker Amanda Liu's pick — Sliced Pork Loin Soup ($7). The latter features bite-sized slices of pork, which is great if you don't fancy messy eating. For sides, Amanda recommends ordering You Tiao ($2) to dunk in the soup, and the gravy-ladened, collagen-packed Braised Pig Trotters (from $7) to drizzle all over your rice or Mee Sua ($2).
Avg Price: $10 per person
