Tired of MSG laden soups or soups with too strong a body? Soup Guru intends to change this, with their mini restaurant launch at 313@Sommerset. With reasonably priced soups, one can start the day, or end the day on the right note with their variety of options.

Classics like the Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup ($5) has a subtly sweet finish and is apparently good for detoxifying the body - ideal after a night of partying.

Other light soups include the Papaya Pork Ribs with White Fungus Soup ($5) which is well balance on its levels of fruitiness and savoriness.

Need something heavier, the Buddha Jumps Over the Wall ($8) comes with a dry finish from the many hours of boiling in its high end ingredients. Alternatively, go for the Ten Tonic Ginseng Chicken Soup ($8) which is very strong in taste and would warm your body up on a cold rainy day.

Looking for something peppery? They have the Gingko Pork Tripe Pepper Soup ($5.50). This milky white soup may be one of the strongest soups on offer, but it will not kill your throat like some of the bak kut tehs out there.

My favourite soup though had to be the Pear and Apple Pork Ribs Soup ($4.50), which is light and slightly sweet. I am not much of a fan of fruits in soup but the way it is done here, in its level of lightness makes this an ideal dish to try. I also liked that not too much pork was used, which means that the pork only comes at the finish and does not dominate the soup.

Overall, I must say that I enjoyed the soups on offer at the stall and it is certainly one of the better soup places out there.
