About Us

B’s Hakka House started off as a humble hawker stall called Mei Zhou Hakka Cuisine helmed by husband-and-wife duo (chef B and Mrs B) in the busy Sembawang Hills Food Centre in 2000. Selling authentic Hakka dishes that follow traditional recipes, coupled with the affordable price tag, B’s Hakka House quickly gained popularity amongst patrons.

As each Hakka dish was carefully handmade from scratch based on traditional family recipes, they are extremely well-liked by many patrons who are looking for the grandmother’s taste (古早味). To cater to a more local taste, Chef B also researched and enhanced many of the dishes.

Some of the most popular Hakka dishes are:

  • Hakka yong tau foo (niang dou foo)(客家酿豆腐)
  • Braised pork with preserved vegetables (mei cai kou rou)(梅菜扣肉)
  • Hakka abacus seeds (suan pan zi)(客家算盘子)
  • Hakka salt baked chicken (yan ju ji)(客家盐焗鸡)

B’s Hakka House quickly grew to become one of Singapore’s favorites Hakka food stalls, and was invited to multiple TV shows and featured in multiple news articles for their delicious and authentic handmade Hakka dishes. (check them out here)

In particular, B’s Hakka House is especially famous for its rice wine chicken (ji ju) (客家鸡酒) and radish balls (luo bo wan)(客家萝卜丸). Both dishes are time-consuming to make and are usually sold out shortly after B’s Hakka House opens its stall.

Over the years, B’s Hakka House rebranded to its current name (宾客好) and shifted from Sembawang Hills Food Centre to Havelock Road to Bugis Food Village before settling down for a coffee shop style eatery in Joo Chiat Road. As B’s Hakka House grow, the menu also expanded to include a wider variety of Hakka food.

In 2013, chef B decided to retire after more than 10 years of helming the kitchen of B’s Hakka House. In his spare time, chef B enjoys cooking for relatives and friends, and his Hakka dishes are extremely well-received during gatherings and parties.

Currently, chef B hopes to share his Hakka dishes with more people and is now operating a small home-based business with a limited menu selling his most popular Hakka dishes.
