First Soup House

C says:

At the end of Pasir Panjang road, towards the Clementi side, there are a few eating places - a Teochew bak kut teh place called First Soup House, and a nasi lemak place called Hot and Spicy Nasi Lemak.

They sell the peppery bak kut teh, not the herbal kind, but we're quite discerning about our bak kut teh and this is nowhere near the standard of our favourites, Founder and Song Fa.

The soup is a tad too sweet, and they add either coriander or tang oh, both of which I really don't like. The pork ribs are quite tender but not particularly meaty, so $8 per bowl of 3 ribs doesn't get you much meat.

The giam chye isn't pretty salty and not garlicky enough - basically, not Founder's giam chye.

This isn't all bad, as long as you take it at face value and don't compare with any others. If I were yearning for something soupy close to home, this'll do.

Not very good. Pass.
