Lim Soup (Bukit Merah Central)

Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50
We arrived at Lim Soup in Dong Fong Fatt Coffee Shop at 6pm on a Friday evening. Lim Soup specialises in serving healthy yet tasty soups.

The main purpose of our visit was to try its Double Boiled Old Coconut Chicken. However, we were told that the soup was sold out. In the end, I went over to the next stall to try the dry Minced Pork You Mian which was excellent! On the other hand, the partner ordered Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50 (which was one of the few soup left) and Organic Brown Rice $0.80.
Organic Brown Rice $0.80
The Organic Brown Rice which cost $0.80 comes with a generous helping of stir-fried cabbage topped with fried whitebait (silver fish). The brown rice was a tad too hard and dry.
Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50
The Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50 consists of ingredients such as old cucumber, almond seeds, red dates, Chinese wolfberries and pork ribs. The soup was such a disappointment. The soup was so sweet that it overwhelmed other flavours. I have never drank such sweet old cucumber soup before. In additional, the old cucumber seems to be layered (i.e. thinner). The only positive aspect was that the pork rib was tender. Needless to say, the partner regretted ordering this soup.

  1. Oh! seem like a disappointment but at least you tried. I quite like such Chinese healthy soup. Of course minus being overly sweet.
