Souperstar @ Eastpoint Mall – Popiah with a Twist!
Fortune Foods has been specialising in popiah skins and kueh pie tee since 2004. From its humble beginnings as a small hawker stall focusing only on retail sales, the brand has since expanded to wholesale and home delivery.
Wei Ting and Wei Ling, the two sisters in their 20s, have spent a lot of their childhood helping out at their parents with this family business since young. They have recently started out a new brand – Souperstar, to reach out the idea of “a living craft – popiah” to more people especially the younger generation whom may be missing out the great taste of traditional handmade popiah skin (a hard-to-find skill these days). Using the traditional popiah skin which the sisters are familiar with, they jazzed it up at Souperstar to serve a few fusion popiahs and western soups, retailing at affordable prices.
The Seafood Wasabi Mayo ($4.10) is a great combination of fresh shrimps, seasoned tuna and crab sticks, wakame seaweed, coral lettuce, light wasabi mayonnaise. Resembling a salad bowl but wrapped in popiah skin, it is something light and refreshing. It was a challenge for me to put the huge popiah into my mouth, but I recommend you to do it as well because you will taste how all the flavours come together. Best paired with the refreshing Summer Fruit Tea that is made with homemade pineapple honey instead of raw sugar.
For those who are watching your diet, the Sesame Chicken Popiah ($3.80) is a good option as you can tender slices of roast chicken with juicy cherry tomatoes, coral lettuce and creamy white sesame sauce. I like something more tangy, then the Sweet Thai Chicken ($3.80) was a great option with roast chicken, fresh mango, cilantro, coral lettuce, sweet thai chilli mayonnaise. No complaints about the popiah skins, they are so thin. Perhaps a little too thin for these popiahs because it broke when they wrap it. Or perhaps they were being too generous.
If you still prefer the old school popiah like me, go for The Traditional ($2.50) which has a beautiful harmony of more than 10 ingredients skillfully wrapped into a full-flavoured traditional chinese popiah. I cannot resist the slow-cooked turnips with chopped peanuts, crispy bits, boiled eggs, shredded cucumbers and cilantro. Add a little sweet sauce, minced garlic and shrimp sambal, it’s still the perfect combination.
Stews and soups available too, such as Beef Brisket & Red Wine Sauce ($9.50), Golden Curry Stew ($8.50), Creamy Tomato Basil (from $3.20), Hearty Corn Chowder (from $3.20), Sunny Carrot (from $3.20), Classic French Onion (from $3.20) etc. Stews are served together with their signature three-grain rice (pearl barley, brown rice and Japanese short-grain with carrots) for the hungry ones.
