Spinach Soup – A Taste of Uncle’s Healthy Recipes
If you were thinking “meh, vegetarian food”, you’re actually wrong. There is more to this dish than just plain spinach spinach spinach. The stall specializes in 2 types of comforting soups ($3.50), which they boil from scratch. Furthermore, the male owner uses only ingredients such as chicken bones and fresh spinach to create a wholesome soup that is light on the palate. (No MSG!) If you wish to have some carbs to fill your tummy, you may opt for a selection of noodles or rice for 50 cents.
The first soup (containing spinach, minced pork, prawns, mushrooms and wolfberry) has a subtle mushroom flavour, which offers the soup some sweetness. What I enjoyed the most was the addition of prawns which were fresh and had a good crunch. I ordered my soup with thick bee hoon ($4). However, this soup was unfortunately a tad too bland for me. Fret not, add their signature sambal belacan sauce which immediately elevates the taste. P/S you can even bring home a jar of the sauce at $5!
Personally, the second soup that featured century and salted eggs, worked for me. It comes with spinach, minced pork and wolfberry as well. To highlight, the eggs added a unique touch of richness and saltiness, which for me, brought the whole dish together. Doesn’t soup macaroni just remind you of home? Well, at least for me, my mother’s cooking comes to mind. If you wish to savour a light yet flavourful dish, you won’t be able to resist gulping down this hearty bowl of soup to satisfy those cravings.
The long queue lining up in front of Spinach Soup is a sufficient testimony of how tasty this simple fare is. These bowls of noodles are great for warming up your tummies on a rainy day (especially during this monsoon season) or when you simply want something light on the palate. Come on! Let’s relish our spinach to become as healthy and strong as Popeye, aye?
