Tai Seng Fish Soup – Hidden Gem in Ubi Industrial Park
I was introduced to Tai Seng Fish Soup many years ago when my parents first brought me here.Located at Bing Garden vwin备用Eating House in Ubi Industrial Park,Tai Seng has the longest queue in this small vwin体育coffee shop during lunch hour.I once queued at Tai Seng Fish Soup for 30 minutes,all just to get a bowl of fish soup.
At Tai Seng Fish Soup,there is a friendly uncle who takes orders.He may seem intimidating initially as he asks for orders in a gruff manner.But you will later realise that he endearingly calls everyone (yes,everyone) ah boy and ah girl.He is cheerful,and fatherly in the way that he reminds customers to take the chilli or extra cutlery.
I have tried their Double Sliced Fish Soup Bee Hoon ($5.50) on multiple occasions but seeing as it took over an hour just to get to this inaccessible area,I ordered an extra bowl of Tomyam Soup ($5.50) for good measure.
Tai Seng Fish Soup does their fish soup light,milky and sweet.Trust me,you will want to finish the entire bowl of broth!The milkiness may be due to the addition of evaporated milk,but it also seemed like the careful boiling of soup stock and fish bones contributed to the depth in flavour.However,I must admit that I remembered the soup to be a lot richer two years ago.
The Double Sliced Fish Soup Bee Hoon comes with both fresh fish and fried fish slices.I loved the firm,fresh and sweet slices of Batang fish which were so tender that it was difficult to kiap them up for a shot without them breaking apart!My only gripe was that the fish slices were rather small,and there seemed to be only a few of them.The fried fish was less memorable,probably as they were soaked inside the soup for too long and became a little chewy.
Apart from fish slices,Tai Seng Fish Soup offers fried egg strips in their fish soup.The strips were fragrant and soaked up the broth nicely.Do be careful as the egg might squirt out piping hot soup into your mouth!The fish soup was also made healthier with the addition of xiao bai cai.All the well-executed ingredients,together with slippery,slurp-worthy bee hoon,makes for a wholesome meal!
It was my first time trying the Tomyam Soup at Tai Seng Fish Soup and it impressed me tremendously.The tom yam soup was sour,with just a hint of sweetness at the end.The first sip fools you into thinking that the spice level is manageable,but it gradually builds up and soon,your lips will be numb and burning!I felt that Tai Seng really nailed the Tomyam soup as not many fish soup places can crvwin备用eate that lightness and spice flavour that gets you hooked onto its taste.The tom yam soup comes with sliced fish,onion and cabbage.Although I found it a tad pricey,it was really satisfying,especially when paired with some rice.
When I first visited Tai Seng Fish Soup a couple of years ago,the lunch queue seemed longer and the grvwin备用eat quality of fish soup left me yearning for more.Now,their standards seemed to have dipped a little but nonetheless,Tai Seng remains one of my favourite places for fish soup.The next time you head out for a food adventure,why not head to Tai Seng for a bowl of comforting fish soup?
