Tribute to Hard Work

Hopscotch Paint Splat

Inspired by the local ‘Bak Kut Teh’, or ‘Coolie Tea’. Believed to originate in the 1920s as a vital tonic made from meat scraps such as bones and cheaper cuts of pork as a form of nourishment for coolies who endured back-breaking labour in the sweltering heat. This warm cocktail pays homage to their labour of love which helped shape Singapore into the nation it is today.

Drinks of Labour served is based of the original “Hokkien” style with many herbs and spices to add to the nourishments. However, the peppery version has since garnered more popularity, and the herbal version is rarely seen nowadays. Served with a ‘You Tiao’ or fried dough stick, which is commonly served with Bak Kut Teh to soak up the liquid goodness.
