Good fish soup!

Full review and photos: http://foodiefc.blogspot.sg/2012/12/hot-spot-cafe-restaurant-burlington.html

Hot Spot Cafe Restaurant dishes out fish soup and cze char cuisines. Located at Burlington Square, just directly opposite Sim Lim Square's food court and also LASALLE College of the Arts. It is located about 15 to 20 minutes walk from Bugis/ Dhoby Ghuat / Little India MRT stations. 

When you are here, take a quick look at what people are eating. Chances are more than 80% of the people here ordered from the fish soup stall. In fact, the fish soup business is so good that they have expanded taking up another unit inside. So now there can serve twice as many customers. So don't just queue blindly, chances are that the queue inside (2nd queue) is much shorter. 

They have also just revised the prices to account for inflation.

The Sliced Fish Soup with thick beehoon came with something unique, which we seldom get at fish soup stalls! It's the fried egg. Besides the fried egg, there were toufu, vegetables, tomato, seaweed and of course the slices of fish. The slices of fish were very fresh and the milky broth was sweet and tasty. The fried egg gave this dish another positive impression. Yummy!

I ordered the Fried Fish Tom Yum Soup with thick beehoon. It was served with fried fish, tomato, toufu, vegetable, onion and a piece of lime. What I liked about this stall was that they were very generous with the ingredients, giving lots of fried fish which were fresh.    The broth, in this case the Tom Yum Soup was delicious with its well balanced spiciness and sourness. Ideal for savouring when it is raining.

The standard of the Fish Soup and Tom Yum Fish Soup is quite good. Let's hope standard can be maintained.

Time for Tom Yam Fish Soup

Hot Spot Cafe Restaurant is located at Burlington Square, directly opposite Sim Lim Square’s food court. And it is next to LASALLE College of the Arts. There are lots of seats avaliable. But sometimes, this place is packed during lunch time. Just from observing, you can see that most people are eating tom yam fish soup or fish soup.

There are several stalls inside. Without doubt, I went to the very first stall in it which is the fish soup stall.

Look at the amount of sliced fish, fried fish, squids and fried eggs.

I ordered the Fried Fish Tom Yam Soup (thick Beehoon). In it, there were fried fish, toufu, tomato, onion,vegetables and a piece of lime. In fact, there were several pieces of fried fish, more than what I expected whereas there was a lack of vegetables. The fish was fresh. It would be good to let it (the fish) stay in the soup a while longer to absorb more of the tom yam soup. The tom yam soup was tasty, sour and yet spicy. Delicious! Would be great to eat this when the weather is cold/cool.

Overall, this is an above average fish soup stall that certainly warrants more visits. The issue I have is that it is not very accessible unless u drive as the nearest MRT stations (Bugis/Little India/Dhoby Ghaut) is a good 15-20 minutes walk away.

Thanks to my colleagues, I found out about this fish soup place and on a day in which my throat was not feeling fantastic, trotted down to have some soup.

The Fish Soup ($4.20) was tasty and the fish was really fresh. I also tried the Seafood Soup ($4.70) which used the same soup base. Unfortunately, the squid had lost its freshness.

Generall, soup is tasty but the only thing is that there is a post meal after-taste two hours later. Having water nearby helps.
