With their different flavours, variations and ingredients, soups are loved the world over. Let’s see which soups are the most popular in restaurants, hotels, kopitiams and cafés across Singapore!
The classic mushroom soup has a universal appeal, and it rings true at home too. You’ll find mushroom soup in most soup-serving restaurants and eateries in Singapore – but a high quality, fragrant mushroom soup will differentiate yourself from the competition and keep diners coming back for more.
For times when diners want a richer and more filling Western alternative compared to mushroom soup, seafood chowder is usually their next favourite choice, and for good reason too. This soup packs lots of flavour, and contains bits of seafood that beautifully complement its creamy texture.
While this soup packs some calories, its rich taste and overall shiok factor make it all worthwhile. This dish’s perfect mix of spices and wonderful aroma means that the smells alone can lure diners at the next table to peek over and consider adding it to their order.
Pig’s organ soup
This popular Teochew delight is a favourite among Singaporeans for its mixture of zest, peppery hotness, and soft, chewy pig parts – including stomach, liver and pork slices. Onion leaves, pepper and salted veggies are used for refining the soup’s flavour, giving it a perfect combination of sweetness and saltiness.
Sliced fish soup
Seafood is a staple in Chinese menus, so it should be no surprise to find sliced fish soup in this collection of Singapore favourites. The highlight of this soup is the succulent, thinly-sliced pieces of fish that go perfectly with chopped chilli and light soya sauce, and can be served either boiled or fried. Not just that, the soup also tastes great with both noodles and rice – making it one of the most versatile soups in this list!
An All-Time Japanese Favourites
Since its introduction to local menus in the 90s (back when Japanese pop culture reigned supreme), miso soup has stayed a hugely popular choice in Japanese restaurants all over Singapore.
Made from miso paste and basic dashi stock and accompanied by seaweed and tofu, this simple Japanese soup may not be the reason why most people visit a Japanese restaurant. However, it’s almost always a part of their meal because it’s a heart-warming appetiser and complements almost any Japanese dish well.
So there you have it, 6 of Singapore’s most popular soups. Add some to your menu and give them a go!
