Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, Mangga Besar

 

After successfully opening the famous Song Fa Bak Kut Teh in Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) last July, another Song Fa Bak Kut Teh branch is opened in Jayakarta Food Place, Mangga Besar (The restaurant is actually facing to Jalan Hayam Wuruk).

Two weeks ago, I went there for a food tasting invitation. I arrived around 11.30 am and the restaurant was still empty.

But less than an hour, the restaurant became full.

The open kitchen.

Chinese Tea - Rp. 35.000 (refill)

The ordered food. 
It was totally a delightful feast!

Groundnuts - Rp. 18.000 (S), Rp. 28.000 (M), Rp. 38.000 (L)
Imported groundnuts.

Salted Vegetables - Rp. 18.000 (S), Rp. 28.000 (M), Rp. 38.000 (L)
Imported salted vegetables.

 Pork Ribs Soup (S) - 2 Ribs - Rp. 68.000
Pork Ribs Soup (L) - 3 Ribs - Rp. 88.000
The pork ribs were fabulous. So tender and full of flavor. I really enjoyed the soup. The soup was aromatic and tasted peppery from the white pepper and garlic. 


The best part is when your bowl has run out of the soup, the staff will continually pour the soup using a kettle. Do not worry, the refill of the soup is free of charge :)

Pork Tenderloin - Rp. 55.000 (S), Rp. 72.000 (L)

Perfect to company eating the Pork Ribs and all the other soup dishes.

Dough Fritters (Cakwe) - Rp. 9.000 (S), Rp. 12.000 (M), Rp. 18.000 (L)
I like to dip the cakwe into the soup.

Fresh and crunchy Chinese cabbage.

Braised Chicken Feet with Beancurd skin - Rp. 30.000 (S), Rp. 45.000 (L)
Interestingly that the braised chicken feet are paired with beancurd. The outcome of both was enjoyable.

The trotters and intestines were really good marinated.


 Almond Pudding - Rp. 22.000
