Soup Restaurant (AMK Hub)
I am sure the Soup Restaurant is not a stranger to most of you. In the business for over a decade, the restaurant provides diners with a quick dabble into nostalgia and memories of traditional steamy, aromatic delicacies of old.
We were walking around AMK Hub over the last weekends and were craving for some Grandma’s home cooking dishes, hence we dropped by Soup Restaurant and ordered its “Chinatown Healthy Set Menu”（牛车水健康套餐，$48.80++）for 2.
Steamed San Yu Fish Slices（清蒸生鱼片）is simple yet delicious. The fresh fish slices with steamed with soy sauce and served with coriander and ginger. The light sauce makes this dish more appetizing and healthier than deep fried ones.
I can never understand why must there be Lao Po Bing（老婆饼）and Lao Gong Bing（老公饼）, just like I can’t understand why are there Ah Gong Fan Shu Leaves（阿公蕃薯叶）and Ah Ma Fan Shu Leaves（阿妈蕃薯叶）.
I guess most ladies prefer sweet stuff and can’t eat chilli. That’s why Lao Po Bing is the sweet version and Ah Ma Fan Shu Leaves is the non-spicy version. But I can’t survive without chilli and savory food. Maybe I should be born a man.
Based on the samsui women of Chinatown’s rare delicacy and prepared exactly the same way, Samsui Ginger Chicken（三水姜茸鸡）allows you to taste a little bit of Singapore’s past.
There are many ways to eat this. You can choose to slather some ginger onto the chicken and eat it with the lettuce, or simply enjoy the chicken with rice, like the traditional chicken rice. Which way do you prefer?
The Double Boiled Waisan & Ginseng Roots with Chicken Soup（淮山杞子参须炖鸡汤）was way too bitter for me. Nevertheless, I finished the whole bowl.
