good and affordable

the simple things are done right. i always order these two dishes (must tries);

the samsui chicken. chicken is tender and fresh, steamed to perfection. the minced ginger that goes with it gives the chicken its flavour. i eat it with the cucumber slices and lettuce. very refreshing. similar to how koreans eat their bbq meat with lettuce. samsui chicken comes in two sizes. the small feeds two people well.

beggar tofu. tofu is smooth and it is bland. however, the sauce goes superbly well with it. i enjoy putting lots of sauce onto my rice and eating it on its own.

their new dish, ah gong's fried rice is good. not oily and fragrant. even me, as someone who detests eating fried rice, fried noodles of any kind, find it tolerable and quite delicious.

chinese tea and chrysanthemum tea are refillable at $1.20 and $1.80 respectively.

rice at 1.80 per bowl.

in total, i spend about 30bucks inclusive of gst and service charge for two. so $15 for each person.

ambience is suitable for family dinners. it is cosy, not a noisy eating place (unless you have a crying baby at the next table). warm lighting, and interesting chinese fixtures.

after eating there for a few years, i have not encountered any rude staff or ridiculous waiting time.

It’s Not All Soupy At Soup Restaurant.

http://thechosenglutton.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/its-not-all-soupy-at-soup-restaurant/

Like what most of us would think, me inclusive. I had the conception from the name of the restaurant that it only serves soup, or maybe mostly soup dishes. It was until I went up to have a look at the menu that I realized, it was just like any other Chinese restaurants – like Dian Xiao Er and PuTien – it’s a high class zhi-ca, where you order dishes to go along with a bowl of rice, in general.

Interior design was pretty intricate – I do think that the designs of Chinese restaurants generally are, more often that not. Comfort level is definitely higher than that of Dian Xiao Er’s (they have bigger tables for the many dishes coming up), but lower than that of PuTien’s. After some tough decision-making, we narrowed it down to some of the dishes we thought would suit our appetite that evening.

Beggar Bowl Rice with Chicken ($5.50++) :: Reason why we ended up ordering this on top of our bowls of plain rice is mainly because we wanted to both look at what exactly a Beggar Bowl Rice is, and how it tastes like. Now, that’s why our Marketing Lecturer used to remind us the importance of capturing the interest and curiosity of customers, lol. Stirred and mixed with the small side dish of garlic, this bowl of rice is definitely worth more than just its name. If you like garlic, you’d like how it goes well with the chicken, the rice and its gravy.

Sambal Kang Kong (Small) ($7.80++) :: Even though we unanimously agreed that Dian Xiao Er’s rendition of this is tastier, I personally still think that this at least hits the average mark. It’s not too bad, although it might come across a little too salty.

Fried Venison with Ginger and Spring Onion ($13.80++) ::  This is one that disappointed me a lot. I’ve always been a fan of venison (ie. deer meat), especially when it’s done with black pepper. This dish was way too salty for all of our likings. Furthermore, it was served last, which wasn’t very tactical, because we were almost done with our portion of rice that we ended up eating it without the company of plain rice to neutralize the saltiness. Could have been done better.

Hand Chopped Minced Pork with Salted Egg ($8.50++) ::  This new series of hand chopped minced pork (only 30 servings are served per day) comes with either salted egg, salted fish or waterchestnut. We went ahead with the one with salted egg. Portion was just right for 4 persons, although we wouldn’t complain if we could have more. I don’t know, but to me, the sauce, the pork, the salted egg, it all blended well together, it was a good dish.

Fried Man Tou ($4.00++) :: I was slightly taken aback at the number of pieces it served at only $4 – 8 pieces, so it’s about 50cents per piece, I thought it was quite reasonable in such a place. If you eat it alone like the way it is, it’s quite bland. But what we did, we dipped it in the gravy of the Minced Pork dish – it was considerably compatible :D

Waisan & Ginseng Roots with Chicken Soup ($5.80++) ::  Again, we ordered this so that we actually tasted Soup Restaurant‘s soup. This is one of their popular dishes. It is said to be for those who are fatigued and for stress-relieving. I love this soup and how it tastes – considering their kitchen to be MSG-free, this is impressive.

Subjectively, I feel that the food here at Soup Restaurant  is comparable to that of Dian Xiao Er’s, but PuTien‘s is definitely a notch higher. Worth trying. Service I received here is surely the best though. Very courteous waitpersons around.

—> Note #1: Hand towel’s $0.40 per piece, and so will the starters be charged. If you don’t wish to pay, you can ask the waitpersons to remove them. Iced/Warm water’s free though.

—> Note #2: Payment is done at the counter and not table.

—> Note #3: I had my dinner on a weekend. Queue was rather long, so in case you are rushing but still want a good meal, you might have to think twice.

—> Note #4: They have specialty dishes in respective outlets. You can check out their website for more on the dishes they offer in the different outlets.

阿婆蕃薯叶

Simple yet big on taste

I was in the mood for a simple dinner and since I've been here before, albeit a long time ago, decided to drop by again for a no-brainer meal.

The 三水姜茸鸡, being a signature dish, was extremely popular as it was seen on almost every table. The poached chicken wasn't exactly mind-blowing on its own but coupled with the robust and savory ginger paste, it was absolutely divine. The fresh lettuce provided for wrapping added a nice crunch though we found the chicken went really well with plain rice too.

We ordered 阿婆蕃薯叶 for some dietary fibre. Even though the sweet potato leaves were just simply stir-fried, they were delectably soft and flavorful being doused in a sauce that was savory with a hint of sweetness.

Needless to say, the meal was pleasant and thoroughly satisfying with a prompt service to boot.

SOUP RESTAURANT -JURONG POINT

Last Saturday Feb. 23rd I visited Soup Restaurant with my spouse and ordered the Lunch set at $38/-.

Unknown to us, the portions of their famous Samsui Chicken had shrunk miserably and instead of the usual chunky morsels of chicken meat on a platter, the portions were "horizontally" halved through the expert stroke of the chef.

The plate of fried fish slices were totally meagre with only 5 ~ 6 small slices on a smaller plate. The set too comes with a pot of soup and to our very surprise, when it came - 2 bowls minus the pot .

Usually there would be 3 ~ 4 servings left on the pot but now, its only one ! Also rice is missing on the set menu and you need to order it .

We were aghast by the 'value' that we received compared to what we had paid . I thought the servers should have the courtesy to tell us that rice is now not included rather than at the time when we settled the bill.

We used to great fans of the Soup Restaurant but under such circumstances, we will probably not return again .
