This is the famous stall that made the headlines in Singapore and Hongkong in July 2006, when it refused to open beyond its usual operating hours to serve Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang. It made the news again in January 2007, when ex-Prime Minister of Thailand, Thaksin Shinawatra, 4 months after his ousting in a military coup, made his way here for lunch in a visit to Singapore. He reportedly ate with an entourage of 17 and after that gave the thumbs up to Mr Ng, the shop owner. What more can I say ? And where else can you pay less than $10 for a meal and maybe get to eat beside the movers and shakers of Asia ? Right here at this little corner of Rangoon Road.

The bak kut teh here is the clear and peppery type, although the spiciness of the peppercorns used is very mild and weak. The pork rib meat was done just right, tender (seemingly from long slow-cooking) and not overly stiff like what you usually get at the Balestier Road stalls. Overall, this stall is one of the better choices for BKT and braised pork trotters in and around the Toa Payoh region. $30+ will get you and 3 companions a full meal - a generously-sized braised pork trotter; 4 bowls of pork rib soup; a plate of mixed pig tripe/intestines/innards, tofu and braised eggs; one plate of steamed peanuts; a plate of garlicky (lightly) salted vegetables; and rice per pax. Incredible value for money !

This 24-hours bak kut teh shop is found next to a bus stop along Balestier Road. I found prices here quite unjustified when benchmarked against Founder's (unit 347 a minute's walk away). The usual BKT bowl costs $4.50 and the not-so-generous spare ribs soup cost $6.50. The chye buay (preserved vegetables) costs $2 - double that of Founder's (as at this time - early 2007). To be fair, most of the side dishes were rather well-cooked and tasty. Would I come again ? not likely given the many other BKT choices in this area. Also, I'd rather try the late-night porridge supper buffet at Quality Hotel not far from here.

Lao Ah Di's bak kut teh (pork ribs soup) belongs to the clear-peppery-style category. The meat was rather bland and tasteless and you'll need the black soy sauce and chilli they provide in the small saucer. The soup, though, was sufficiently peppery without being overly spicy. The whole cloves of garlic in the soup no doubt helped as well. Open from 7am to 3pm, and closed on Mondays.

The bak kut teh here comes with bony pieces of pork and is really run-of-the-mill and disappointing. The braised pig trotters does better and is a more popular choice among diners. Don't confuse this stall with Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh, located at Block 341 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, which is a better choice by far.

Joo Siah's bak kut teh still maintains its consistency after all these years in business. The soup is as peppery as ever. Unfortunately they were out of the meatier $6 spare ribs portions even though I was there at 530pm. So go in the morning or during lunch time for more choices if you want a wider selection. The nearest train station is Chinese Garden MRT station which is about 5 minutes walk away.
