This Secret Fish Soup Stall at 127 Bukit Merah Lane Doesn't Have a Name!
Today,I am going to share about this rather obscure sliced fish soup stall at 127 Bukit Merah Lane.This stall has NO name!Let's just call it 127 Bukit Merah Fish Soup instead.
Yes,you read that correctly.The yellow signboard simply carries the words "Fish Soup.Fried Fish Soup.Seafood Soup.Mixed Pig's Organ Soup" in green.Interestingly,127 Bukit Merah Fish Soup also sells mixed pig's organ soup,a rare combination with sliced fish soup.We went during lunchtime and there was a long queue of office workers.The queue was slow-moving as each bowl of fish soup is carefully monitored and vwin德赢投注cooked on the spot over a single stove by an uncle.All in all,it took us around twenty-five minutes to get a bowl of Double Fish Soup with yam rice ($5).
Sliced fish soup is one of those things that I vwin备用eat often and,hence,my standards for it are higher.The soup looked cloudy and milky,evident of how evaporated milk has been well incorporated into the fish broth which was richer and sweeter than the usual sliced fish soup.I also thought I detected a slight hint of XO brandy in the soup.However,the freshness and sweetness of the fish did not seem to have been sufficiently infused into the soup — the sweetness of the broth tasted like it came from elsewhere.This was a decent bowl of fish soup that's robust in flavour,but lacking the natural sweetness of the fish.
Moving on to the sliced fish.I know it does not look like much but the fried fish was amazingly crispy.Even after being soaked in the soup for so long,the insides of the fish still remained relatively crisp.Of course,if you want it to look and taste good,don't leave it till it becomes soggy!
I found the fresh sliced fish so-so only.The fish was fresh,definitely,but somehow it was not very tender and its texture was rather lumpy.This is going to be a first for me,but I'll recommend the fried fish over the fresh sliced fish!
I initially wanted to order bee hoon to go along with the Double Fish Soup,but was tempted by the interesting brown yam rice and changed my order at the end.This proved to be a costly mistake because the yam rice was quite a letdown.If I didn't know better,I would have thought that it was a bowl of wet,overvwin德赢投注cooked rice with soya sauce.Even the fish soup could not improve the taste of the supposed yam rice.Only the (surprisingly) sweet and sour chilli sauce,which bore a strong spicy kick,marginally made the yam rice better.Oh well,should have stuck to my bee hoon!
I have come across comments on the internet claiming that 127 Bukit Merah Fish Soup is a worthy contender for the title of ‘Best Sliced Fish Soup in Singapore.' After trying it for myself,I can understand why some would say that as its sweet broth is indeed appealing.However,my personal take is that despite it being a decent bowl of fish soup,I wouldn't go so far as to place it on my list of top places for sliced fish soup.
