The Soup Restaurant never fails to please. First tasted them more than 10 years ago, they are today still serving up delicious meals in a lovely Chinese coffee-shop setting. Their signature samsui chicken is a platter of fully deboned steamed chicken accompanied with a ginger-sesame-stock dip.
You are also given a mound of fresh lettuce leaves for the samsui chicken. Wrap a cold, crisp leaf around a slice of plump, juicy chicken, and voila! Refreshing bites of savoury heaven.
Yes, this is a soup restaurant after all, so they do offer a variety of Chinese herbal soups. Ginseng chicken, black chicken, pork ribs with various herbs. We tried the lingzhi with pork ribs. A tinge of herbal bitterness kept hubby away from it, but I drank it all.
The de rigeur plate of vegetables to balance out the meal. Nice rendition of sambal kangkong. Crunchy, savoury and spicy.
This was a new or promotional dish, may not be a permanent feature. Salad prawns that came deep-fried in batter and drizzled with salad cream. I'm not sure I relish the macabre row of decapitated prawn heads guarding their dismembered bodies. Hubby enjoyed this dish, but I thought it was a little bland and didn't really care for the heavy salad cream. The prawns went better with the sambal kangkong chili gravy, I thought.
But all in all, a satisfying meal with decent service despite it being a busy outlet (Suntec City branch).
