Soup Restaurant- Yummzz

The Soup Restaurant is a nice place to eat Chinese food. Have a look at photos: http://mrupupup.blogspot.sg/2012/07/soup-restaurant-at-hougang-mall.html

Mrupupup really enjoyed their signature dish - samsui ginger chicken, really nice! Mrupupup ordered the 3 persons set although there were four people (which was enough for us). The Soup Restaurant is located at the 2nd floor of Hougang Mall. Soup Restaurant has many outlets in Singapore. The dinner set included samsui ginger chicken, olive rice, beancurd in a claypot, lotus root with pork ribs soup, minced meat with egg yolk steamed and stir fried potato leaves. Samsui ginger chicken also comes with fresh lettuce to wrap the chicken with the ginger and garlic sauce. Soup Restaurant sure makes a healthy meal. The service at Soup Restaurant was good and fast. Yummzz!

Seven of us went to Soup Restaurant in Hougang Mall to celebrate a 21st Birthday. It was a singular experience.

We called ahead, and they told us "No reservations", that the resturant would be full, and that we should expect to wait. What nonsense. The restaurant was half empty when we arrived.

OK, we guess. Maybe they are conservative and want to manage our expectations. As we sit down, we are given a menu with just 2 choices!! Celebration set menu or Appreciation set menu. No a la carte. Service staff could not speak English, and were clearly expecting us to select just one. Requests to modify the menu were declined abruptly and almost rudely, and all throughout, the service staff gave us the impression that we were wasting their time. Perhaps Soup Restaurant hopes that keeping to two items on the menu, patrons can quickly toss a coin to decide. But in that case, surely Soup Restaurant can afford to supply the coin??

Here comes the food. Samsui chicken, three-egg spinach dish, and some kind of braised duck met expectations. Chilli prawns were a sorry mess, and clearly the prawns had seen better days. Perhaps they were recycled from some other branch? And, No Soup Restaurant, you cannot hide stale prawns by dousing them with copious quantities of corn starch. We sent it back, and like a boomerang, the dish returned, reheated and just as bad.

Service is abysmal. To get our tea topped up, we have to wait while the service staff cleared the table next to us. Perhaps Soup Restaurant was concerned that if they didn't clear the crockery quickly, we might get so upset with the lack of service that we would break some of them? They can rest easy. We had no such intention. In fact, with the objective of reciprocating something good for something bad, we hope that this review will enlighten both patrons and staff - one to stay far far away, and the other to get their act together.

As the title of this review says, we left Soup Restaurant thinking "Heads they win, tails we lose"....

PS: The review process requires us to state what the restuarant is suitable for. As none of them apply, we have ticked "take away". We hope there iss something Soup Restaurant can take away from this review. Failing which, we hope that the restaurant itself will be taken away.

Regarding your point about the lack of menu choices, we have a practice of offering special set menus during festive periods such as Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The Celebration Set Menu and Appreciation Set Menu were part of our Mother’s Day special set menus. A la carte menus are available on all other days.

I had a set dinner for 6 pax with my family. No doubt, the service is good and environment is cooling.

Samsui Chicken - Still the BEST. Must try dish in Soup Restaurant.

Root Lotus Soup - Tasted too salted for the soup.

Yang Chow Fried Rice - Still Maintaining, can be Better.

Salad Prawn - The prawn is either not fresh or overcooked. The bite on the prawn is hard.

Sweet potato leaves - Still good and nice.

Tofu - Too tasty with the gravy.

Sliced Fish - Average --
