SBA

Yay! This cow has returned from a 2-week long reservist! :D

So here's a post! Moohehe.

Seeing how Singaporeans like acronyms (those 3 letter abbreviations), here's one...what does SBA stand for? Singapore Badminton Association? Serangoon Bridal Arrangements? Sentosa Building Authority? Si Bei Angry?

Okok, before this turns into a lame episode of We Are Singaporeans.... I meant it as Soup Broth Asia! Lol.


The Chicken Tonic ($7.20) sounded more potent than it was. I would have liked a more robust herbal influence but I guess people who prefer a mild herbal taste might take to this better. The addition of a friend wanton into the soup puzzled me a little. Anyway, this was a clear chicken broth flavoured mildly with Chinese herbs. The pea shoots added a sweet vegetal touch.


What I liked much better was the Sumo Wrestler ($8.60)- a good stock with a light creaminess and natural sweetness of soy milk. Ingredients included pork, tofu, mushrooms and veggies. Nice!


Each order of soup comes with white rice but for an additional $1, one can get Yam Rice. Quite alright with the sprinkling of fried shallots adding fragrance.


Upgrade your meal ($3.80) and get to choose 2 side dishes. Here we had, clockwise from top left, Fried Fish Slices, Cold Tofu, Papaya Salad and Chicken Adobo. I like the variety that these side dishes added. The tofu was well-chilled and had a ponzu like sauce. The Papaya was tangy and slightly spicy. The Chicken Adobo (not sure if this was supposed to be the Filipino dish since I have not tried it before) was fried chicken wing coated in a sour, savoury and spicy sauce. Can be quite addictive!

Hmmm the Hainanese Beef Tripe Soup sounds tempting...Maybe SBA = Souping Back Again.
