A popular Bak Kut Teh place in Singapore is facing business troubles due to the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.

May Close Down

According to Nigel, the second-generation owner of Founder Bak Kut Teh (发起人肉骨茶), their restaurants have been struggling even after Phase 2 when dine-in was permitted and will be shutting down if the situation doesn’t get better in the next couple of months.

Here’s his letter of appeal to the public to save his BKT business, which has been around for 42 years since his father started it.

Due to the pandemic, the original founder (Nigel’s father) has even made his way down to prepare the Bak Kut Teh broth himself.

Confirm very original taste.
