Herbal Soups at 阿2老火汤 Superbowl Leisure Park Singapore JK1109

Today is one of those days when I just wanted a comforting soup for lunch; been eating a little too much and the sweltering heat is also getting to me.

So, I made my way to Singapore's west at Superbowl Leisure Park, Yuan Ching Road for the popular soups at 阿2老火汤.

阿2老火汤 is one of the dozen of stalls at the large food centre at Superbowl Leisure Park.

The large food centre here serves mostly residents and workers who work around the Jurong area. It's bright, clean and reasonably cool without air con.

The boss, Mr Mah who hails from Ipoh, has been running 阿2老火汤 soup stall for 4 years now.

There are altogether 12 types of Cantonese style soups at 阿2老火汤 soup stall.

Overall, all the three soups we had had strong flavours and full bodied, viscous consistency broth. The piping hot soups were also generously loaded with ingredients. Not too greasy and no MSG is used according to Mr Mah.

We happily drank up all 3 bowls of soup to the last drop.

If you like heavy broth, savoury sweet and not overly herbal flavours, 阿2老火汤 is for you.

Besides the white rice there are the pumpkin and olive rice options. The rice are flavourful but not too fluffy and of average quality grains. They are value for money at 80 cents for the pumpkin rice and SGD1 for the olive rice.

  1. If I not wrong... they have a brancj in Ang Mo Kio, used to have enough ingredients per bowl of soup. But now they changed helper and the ingredients are so pathetic, very little, only one or two VERY small pieces of meat on the lotus root soup. The new China helper lady has very bad attitude anf refuses to let us contact the boss.

  3. Not standardized... after they hired new helpers... their soup sometimes very little ingredients... sometimes normal. As if everytime we buy must depends on luck to get normal portion. Just wondering if the boss knows the PRC helpers are reducing the portions in AMK branch... the one besides courts and post office

  4. Now everything seems good portion already but shall continue to observe. Nowadays stall holders or bosses must keep an eye on the PRC helpers. Not all are bad but I did witness other stalls closed down because of these helpers mess up because of their attitude problem or reduce a large portion in the meal. This stall's soup very nice but just that the boss need to be careful of the helpers he hires.

  7. What I am saying is all the truth. I love the soup there. That's why disappointed with their drop of standard suddenly. I went there to look for the boss and in the end the helper refused to give the contact. I contacted mediacrop... they asked me to write in. No choice but to complain here... just hope that the boss will notice the helper was reducing the ingredients... maybe with him noticing? Just find that is such a pity that such good soup with good ingredients suddenly reduced the portion by half... maybe due to hire the wrong person... and we couldn't tell the boss... can't find him. What a joke to scold people like this. I Don't find the soup bad... I just find is a pity. Anyway the branch closed down. That's what I heard. If you don't want people to be anonymous then don't publish. All the while I was praising the soup... only commented the helper may be reducing the ingredients... may be without the knowledge of the boss. I love the soup that's why hope the boss can check about this.How can you scold people like this.

  8. Will not visiting this website again. The author is rude and he is also speaking ill of others too. The way the author never read properly about people's comments and the way the author commented is no difference from speaking ill behind others and anyhiw wrong people... and put words into other people's mouth. Please don't judge people with your own perspective. Won't be visiting this unfair website which only can say praises but nit the truth

  9. Last thing to say is that the soup is very delicious which I mentioned many times... so will be still buying from other branch... just hope the boss will hire good helpers.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
