The Soup Spoon #2
#B1-K4/K7, Paragon Shopping Centre
6738 3860


It's official. I am a soup convert now. Not only are they affordable and filling, the versatility of soups means that there are many different varieties to choose from. This time, I tried the Meatless Minestrone ($5.60 for regular) with whole grains roll. Thick with ingredients such as zucchinis, kidney beans, tomatoes and pasta, each mouthful is a burst of various flavours and textures.

I liked Betty's order of Velvety Mushroom Stroganoff ($7.70). It was a very robust and full-bodied with the aroma of mushrooms. However, after a few spoonfuls, it could get a little overwhelming on the stomach as it's creamy. This is really for serious for mushroom lovers!

Betty got an additional half a Roast Beef Sandwich and a glass of iced tea by topping up another $3.90 for a full meal. And almost regretted it because it turned out to be too much. Trust me, if Betty had difficulty finishing everything, it's really a lot of food!

Hui Yi opted for the all time favourite, Roasted Pumpkin with Toasted Almonds. Delicious!

I think older generations like my mom or grandma will think that having a bowl of soup doesn't constitute a full meal because it's just liquid. That's just plain nonsense! They are so big on flavour and satisfying!

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
