Souper Tang Is Now Boiling Their Nutritious Menu In Singapore
Fans of Tang Shi Fu’s nourishing soups and hearty broths no longer need to cross the causeway just to get a sip of comfort. This famous Malaysian chain restaurant that’s known for their healthy concoctions and carefully thought out menu is now known as Souper Tang in Singapore.
And with their humble beginnings as a traditional Chinese medicine dispensary, their oriental influence is evident – both in the decor and menu, as well as the various herbs and spices that go into each of their wholesome soup dishes.
Take for instance the Souper Tang Signature Soup ($26.90 for two), which is their signature soup that comes with fish maw and chicken and simmered with conpoy, mushrooms, American ginseng and ginseng root. The result is a light and delicate broth that’s heavy on its medicinal and anti-ageing properties.
And if a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, then the Shi Quan – The 10 Herbs Soup ($13.90) is a robust medicinal broth that’s surprisingly smooth and delicious, with none of the intense bitterness associated with the usual ten herb soup. With natural sweetness derived from a careful blend of herbs like angelica root and osmanthus bark, this nutritious dark elixir can help boost the immunity and alleviate insomnia.
But aside from herbal soup bases drawn from an extensive knowledge of the Chinese medicine, the Signature Souper Pesto Pot ($25.90) also highlight Souper Tang’s commitment to serving healthy food. And don’t let the name put you off – the house-made pesto sauce made with a revitalising blend of vegetables, basil, mint and pine nuts might sound like an unconventional creation, but it’s flavours are reminiscent of thunder tea rice. Complementing this guilt free bowl of natural goodness is a slew of fresh vegetables, mushrooms and tofu that basically makes this a hotpot equivalent of a green vegetable juice.
The Stir Fried French Beans With Pu Er ($11.9) is another uncanny update on the usual vegetable dish, with a combination of crunchy sticks of french beans tossed with minced meat and pu er tea. It had a temptingly luscious sheen, but we would have preferred the notes of tea to come through a little stronger.
Meat-lovers should not discount a trip down Souper Tang – they aren’t just all about health soups. Their Stewed Chicken Cordyceps Flower And Essence Of Chicken ($19.90) is part of their healthy protein dish arsenal that features chucks of free-range chicken chunks stewed with ginger, goji berries and red dates, and ultimately topped with their own chicken of essence to help bolster your immunity. The Claypot Atlantic Codfish Maw ($29.90) is a generous fillet of codfish braised in a rich seafood stock with nai bai and red dates to lend some natural sweetness. The resulting sauce help coat the fish maw slices and omega-3 rich fish fillet for a healthy, yet protein packed dish.
Home Braised Pork In Rich Dark Sauce ($18.90) might sound mysteriously dubious, but the meltingly tender pork belly slices will instantly remind you of a familiar kong bak pau. Souper Tang’s rendition comes slightly different – the pork slices came suspended in a sauce made up of oolong tea, angelica root, star anise and mandarin peel, and were served with pandan mantou slices and refreshing cucumber sticks tossed with walnuts, sesame and broad bean sauce. We liked that meat slices were so delicately braised, and the pandan fragrance worked surprisingly well with the notes of tea.
Serving as the perfect accompaniment to their various main dishes and soup creations is the Mee Suah Tossed In Abalone Sauce ($3.90). It might look deceptively plain, but the scoop of homemade XO sauce and abalone sauce elevated the clump of vermicelli to addictive strands of glossy noodles.
And at the end, Souper Tang is more than just serving healthy and comfort savoury dishes that’ll warm your bellies. Their Caramel Beancurd ($3.50) was the perfect way to end your meal on a sweet note, literally. Drizzle the caramel sauce for good measure, or enjoy the silky smooth beancurd pudding that’s equally good on its own.
