As soon as my plane touched down at Changi Airport, I found myself yearning for a specific meal: my go-to dishes from Soup Restaurant Jewel. Despite having visited various Soup Restaurant locations in Singapore numerous times before, I always seem to gravitate towards the same items on the menu. However, my love for these dishes never fades, especially when it comes to the Double Boiled Dried Scallop with Black Chicken Soup.
Soup Restaurant not only has a branch at Jewel Changi Airport, but it also has multiple locations at other places in Singapore including Clementi Mall, Compass One, Holland Village, Hougang Mall, Vivocity, NEX Serangoon, Paragon, Suntec City, and United Square.
I’m keeping this blog post straightforward, as I just want to share some must-try dishes from Soup Restaurant. Whether you’re a first-time visitor to Singapore or new to Soup Restaurant, these signature dishes are definitely worth checking out.
Double Boiled Dried Scallop with Black Chicken Soup
The Double Boiled Dried Scallop with Black Chicken Soup is a must-try at Soup Restaurant. According to their website, this soup is great for boosting blood circulation and relieving stress. I always feel comforted after finishing a whole bowl of it, almost like when we indulge in chocolate during stressful times. The soup is packed with flavour, while the other ingredients like mushrooms, black chicken, dried scallops, red dates, goji berries and Chinese herbs are rather mild since their flavours have blended into the soup. This makes it a nourishing and fulfilling soup to enjoy.
Hometown Fried Fish Belly
One dish you definitely have to try at Soup Restaurant is the Hometown Fried Fish Belly. Even if you’re not a big fan of fish, this dish won’t disappoint. The fish belly is perfectly deep-fried to a golden brown and then stir-fried with tasty seasonings to create a delicious and savoury flavor. It’s similar to the Ginger and Spring Onion Fish dish, but with the added bonus of being fried and more flavourful.
Another must-try is the Hometown Tofu. The soft and wobbly tofu is fried until golden brown on the outside, and the dried shrimps add a deep and umami flavour to the dish.
Ah Kon Fan Shu Leaves
If you’re a fan of spicy food, be sure to try the Ah Kon Fan Shu Leaves, which are sweet potato leaves stir-fried with sambal chilli.
Samsui Ginger Chicken
And of course, you can’t leave Soup Restaurant without trying their Signature Samsui Ginger Chicken. The chicken is tender and moist, with a flavourful ginger sauce and crunchy lettuce on the side.
Teochew Olive Rice
Last but not least, make sure to order the Teochew Olive Rice if you’re a fan of carbs. The rice is greasy and savoury, with a delicious fragrance from the preserved olive vegetables. It’s a great dish on its own or as a side dish.
Soup Restaurant offers classic Chinese dishes that are well-executed and satisfying. It’s a great option for family meals, especially if you have elderly members who may prefer traditional Chinese cuisine. The restaurant’s emphasis on nourishing soups and dishes that are made with quality ingredients adds to its appeal. In terms of service, the staff is generally attentive and friendly. Overall, Soup Restaurant is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a reliable and delicious Chinese meal.
