Founder detail


Having served aromatic “Rou Gu Cha” (also known as Bak Kut Teh in the Hokkien/Teochew dialect) for over 40 years, Founder Rou Gu Cha Cafeteria has established a reputation as one of the best Rou Gu Cha in Singapore.

The customers come first and foremost for the Bak Kut Teh, and hail from all over Singapore as well as the regional countries (Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, etc.). The multitude of celebrity photographs that fill the walls of the eatery and the crowds that throng the restaurant during its opening hours are proof of Founder Rou Gu Cha’s appeal and the authenticity of the food served.

The secret to the quality of Founder’s Bak Kut Teh is in the insistence of its founder, Mr. Chua Chwee Whatt, in using only the freshest meaty pork ribs, simmered in a specially formulated broth of herbs and spices. In fact, Founder’s broth is created using a recipe created by Mr. Chua himself, and perfected over many years of serving the wonderfully peppery dish. Hence, the naming of the business as “Founder Rou Gu Cha”.
