A Healthy Affair @ Soup Restaurant

Jan 3, 12 at 12:15 am

Singapore food chain is fast making its name here in Malaysia. As the newly renovated old wing of 1 Utama Shopping Centre is coming to completion, more new shops are opening, such as this restaurant. As the name suggests, Soup Restaurant (三盅两件) looks like your typical Chinese restaurant that serves nutritious and overly-priced soups just like Tangshifu. I beg to differ though, and I think it’s worth a mention here.

Classy yet serene, the interior is adorned with nature elements. It gives you a feeling that you are dining in the bamboo forest. What about the food?

Soup Restaurant prides itself with Samsui Ginger Chicken (三水姜茸鸡). The chicken was smooth and bone-free, and served with ginger sauce. Adding extra oomph to the meal was the crunchy lettuce which you used to wrap the chicken dipped with ginger. Great stuff.

We also ordered Steamed “San Yu” Fish Slices (清蒸生鱼片). It tasted normal and a bit bland, but it could be due to the strong ginger taste from the chicken. Nevertheless, still a healthy choice considering the restaurant emphasizes on MSG-free food. Great for health freaks.

Hometown Tofu was sold out that time, hence we settled for another choice of tofu, which was Beggar’s Bowl Tofu. (Note: I couldn’t recall the exact name of the dish. Will correct it the next time I pass by) The gravy was sweet and lovely, definitely a perfect companion for white rice. 🙂

Not to be missed from menu was Ah Kon Fan Shu Leaves (呵公番薯叶), sweet potato leaves stir-fried with sambal chili. There’s a mild version which is called Ah Por Fan Shu Leaves. Talk about yin and yang.

A complete meal should end with a hearty, hot-piping soup. We ordered soup of the day, which was Wintermelon with Pork Ribs Soup (冬瓜排骨汤). It was very sweet and full of flavour.

There are many other dishes which we have yet to try, perhaps a second visit soon?

LDM Mutton BBQ @ Geylang, Singapore

I’m hungry now and my comrades are all still busy with their business, so while waiting why not write something interesting which I tried not too long ago.

~*~*~*~

I’m sure everyone is quite aware where is Geylang and why it is so famous in Singapore. Well, apart from being a “red light district”, this place offers some interesting food as well.

Geylang is actually famous for its frog porridge, which I actually tried the other day, but there is another place which is worth mentioning here, LDM (刘大吗) Mutton BBQ. This small establishment located by the main road is basically a skewer shop where charcoal grill is provided at each metal table for a more personal bbq-ing experience.

Pick your food from the ever extensive menu and choose if you want the meat raw or cooked. We chose the latter in order to save time grilling them.

We ordered a plate of Japanese cucumber as appetizer and it turned out to be a wise choice. Great finger food!
