We all managed to meet up to celebrate troopie peapodie’s birthday! After a few rounds of suggestions and ‘votes’, we all decided and headed down towards Soup Kitchen for dinner.
We ordered the set for 6 – and the food came super duper fast!
Appetizer: Dried Chilli and peanuts
dan gui and kai lan
Wolfberry and Ginseng Chicken Soup
- Steamed Fish Slices
- Beggar’s Toufu
- Ginger and Spring Onion Venison meat
Broccoli with Chinese Mushroom and Beancurd Sheets
And of course, not forgetting, the main thing that we came here for:
Sam Sui Chicken
Cabbage to go with the Sam Sui Chicken
- Verdict: 4.5/6 of us liked the place. troopie peapodie didn’t end up liking soup kitchen because she thought it was too herby for her delight. But overall taste wise is ok .. probably just not she will crave and go for. troopie ali overall didn’t like the soup because the chicken was “tough like sandpaper” although she said she tried their other soup – the pork rib one which she claims is not bad. I personally like the Samsui chicken – of course standard is still as good- as well as the broccoli and noodle dish. The chrysanthemum tea is presented quite uniquely, although the I kept drinking the flower together. Food wise, I think its quite a nice healthier alternative than the usual chinese restaurants,and of course, the second time that we are actually gathered in a chinese restaurant.
