To me, one of the best things in life is enjoying a steaming bowl of spicy bak kut teh at home on a rainy day. It’s a tummy-warming yummy soup made from pork ribs cooked in a concoction of spices such as peppercorns and garlic.
The weather here has been kinda chilly and wet these days, so apart from having hot showers, wearing long sleeves and curling up in bed, I’ve also been downing a lot of soup and feeling very happy and content.
Singapore is blessed with a blend of Eastern and Western cuisines, so the soup options available to everyone are limitless, and at affordable prices.
These are two places where I love to get yummy soup 🙂

|Lao Huo Tang Herbal Chicken Soup|
Bf and I visited the Bugis Junction outlet last week. We ordered the Buddha Jumps Over the Wall Soup ($7.50) and Herbal Chicken Soup ($6.50), both of which were extremely satisfying. The former, especially, was thick and flavorful, and did not pale in comparison to high end restaurants (think Mandarin Court). The Herbal Chicken gave me a nutrient kick, which was exactly what I needed after a tired day at work. The stall provides free refill of soup so do make good use of this value-added service!

My favourite of all time is the Tangy Tomato with Basil ($6+) and I order it every time. I love how tangy and spicy the soup tastes, and together with the bun, it’s creamy enough to make a full meal. The Souperholic Card allows you to accumulate points to offset your next purchase too so it keeps me going back for more!
