Ivy's Hainanese Herbal Mutton Soup

Stumble upon this stall during my visits to Pasir Panjang Food Center and it has been long in my mind that I will want to try them one day but the thing that holds me back every time is my concern on the heartiness after consuming mutton. Coincidentally, that day was raining and the weather temperature was cooler than usual, thus we decided to go for something hot. Drinking Mutton Soup is very comforting especially on a rainy day.

I was shocked to see that the smallest portion costs $13 considering a dish that sells in Hawker Center but since I have been longing to eat this, I just told myself to try it. Frankly speaking, there are no regrets. The Hainanese Style of Mutton Soup is definitely different from the ones I usually had. The broth is robust and of course flavourful.

The mutton soup is served in a traditional clay pot and is only cooked upon ordering. They have different variations in the menu. Patrons can choose, a mix of mutton meat, shanks, leg meat or tendons. I like the part whereby the herbal soup fragrant lingers along the walkway of every table that has a pot of mutton soup on their table from Ivy's. The Herbal has rich flavours and ingredients in the mutton soup consists of Wolfberries, Tau Pok, black Fungus, mushrooms and spring onions. 

Tau Pok & Ingredients

There is no gamey taste of mutton and no overpowering flavours in the pot. It was a total different mutton soup that I ever had all these years.

Look at the colour of the broth

The dish is indeed unique on its own and maybe pricy as it seems but the taste and quality of standards say it all. There will be a second visit from me definitely.
