Soon Huat Pigs Organs Soup



Once overshadowed by the newly renovated and Chomp Chomp Food Centre, Serangoon Gardens Food Centre is finally putting up a fight and grabbing a fair share of the foodie crowd. Located directly opposite of each other, the new Chomp Chomp Food Centre or Serangoon Circus is no longer its former glory, as an extremely congested floor plan sets the path for a very small eating place which is often overcrowded and hypo ventilated. Similar to the newly renovated Newton Circus, it has also lost most of its stalls with a huge percentage of the current ones comprising of seafood BBQ stalls and other tourist-attracting ones like satay and carrot cake etc.

Seragoon Gardens Food Centre, on the other hand, has evolved from being a ghost town at night, to a buzzing dining place. Previously only opened in the mornings, the food centre is packed with old stalls from the former Botanic Gardens Food Centre with a much attractive variety than its roadside competitor.



One stall worth mentioning is Soon Huat Pigs Organs Soup which commands a long line everytime I pay it a visit. Never a fan of pig innards, I found myself pleasantly intrigued by the wonderful taste of the soup. Deceptively clear but uber tasty, the soup commands a very nice pleasantness to the palate. It is sufficiently porky with a saltiness coming from the salted vegetables which lends a very nice side to the soup and sets it apart from normal Bak Chor Mee-accompanying soup.

Still, I haven't brought myself to chew on that piece of intestine but have learned to enjoy a good piece of liver, which by the way, goes very well with that slightly tangy chilli sauce. The way I see it though, the best way is still to drenched the rice with the soup and slurp it all up.

Haha. First time I see the phrase "hypo ventilated", but a very apt description indeed for the old chomp chomp :)
