Hong Wen Mutton Soup (Closed)

Hong Wen Mutton Soup has been around for quite sometimes maybe 2 to 3 decades or even more. I still remember my first taste of their mutton soup had got me hooked. Located at the roof top of beauty world centre lies a good childhood days in my memories.

The bowl of rich and well balanced herbal soup was sweet with distinct chinese wine taste. With coriander and strips of ginger added, it had reduced the mutton's smell in Nature, also giving a good punch in the flavour of the soup. While the Indian Version of Kambing Soup (Mutton Soup) is best to go with bread dips, a bowl of chinese mutton soup is best to go well with the plain white rice.

Serving was generous with good chunks of meat and ribs seen.  Unlike the Indian Mutton Soup, Chinese version tasted more herbal and healthy, not as oily. Traditionally, Chinese believed that Mutton is classified as "heaty" meat, therefore I would normally skip such dishes during hot weathers.

The fats of the meat were trim leaving little or none which was quite good to patrons who are health conscious.

Besides the mutton soup in Bukit Timah Food Centre, I think Hong Wen Mutton Soup is still the best so far.
