[CLOSED] Shen Xi Soup 沈希老火湯 @ Foodfare, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital

[Update 08/06/14: Outlet is now closed. Please click on their website below for other locations islandwide.]

These days, I frequent KTPH so regularly that it is almost becoming a hangout place for me as it’s where my ailing parents have been heading to for medical consultations & treatments. Even I also see a urologist there for my kidney stones condition. What a life for the entire family, really.

I love the idyllic surroundings of the hospital which is located next to a lake with lots of greenery. It is like a ‘hospital in a garden’ as well as a ‘garden in a hospital’. It claims to be a ‘healing environment’ which is possibly true as being there has kind of help put my worries aside and ease some troubles in the mind. One of my favourite things to do is to enjoy my all-time favourite lotus root pork ribs soup at the food court. Imagine, having a warm fuzzy feeling in your tummy as you sip hot soup while admiring the green scenic landscape.

Lotus Root Pork Ribs Soup (S$4.50) with Brown Rice ($0.30)

The soup is very rich in flavour after being simmered for long hours. The pork ribs, peanuts and lotus roots are tender. You can also see strips of dried cuttlefish added to the soup to enhance its flavour. Best of all, no MSG is used so you won’t feel thirsty even after gulping down the entire bowl of soup. A simple and down-to-earth recipe of home style cooking, with big flavours and nutrition that make me always come back for more.
