Japan Foods diversifies into bak kut teh

JAPAN Foods Holding on Friday opened its first non-Japanese concept restaurant with a "bak kut teh" pork rib soup outlet at Clementi Mall in Singapore, the Japanese restaurateur announced on Friday.

The restaurant is opened under a franchise from the 40-year-old "New ManLee Bak Kut Teh" group based in Malaysia.

Unlike the traditional bak kut teh restaurants in Singapore that serve their soup with jasmine rice, Japan Foods' restaurant will serve its soup with Japanese rice or Japanese udon noodles. Japanese roasted tea hoji cha will also be served instead of traditional Chinese tea.
