really enjoyed the turtle soup lunch @ tan ser seng today on 20.8.2014.
we all decided to go early. at 1130am, the – at lor bachok (TSS is at shop unit No.29 lor bachok, alongside geylang lor 21) was quite empty. one friend managed to park along the road right next to TSS. 🙂
we had 5pax taking the turtle soup. the server advised us to get 2xS$50 turtle soup (medium).
2 other friends ordered the S$13 black chicken soup & S$13 cordyceps chicken soup.
i really liked the soup. it was so flavourful, intense yet very smooth. i had turtle soup recently & fu he (OR hock hoe) turtle soup at berseh food centre on 10.8.2014. anyway tan ser seng supplied slaughtered turtles to 15 stalls including all 3 turtle soup stalls at berseh food centre. 🙂 fu he was very good too. i could not be sure, but i think tan ser seng was even better & tastier.
it was more expensive as 2xS$50 shared by 5pax=S$20pax whereas we had S$40 shared by 3 at fu he. but i felt i had more turtle meat which included all the good parts – the legs, the jelly (soft shell) & little bits of fat. overall i am very happy with this lunch.
they have this rule restricting soup refill to 1 time, but the bowl was kind of tiny for refill for a S$50 bowl. at fu he, we got a huge refill of soup. for me though, it was enough & i didn’t need so much soup even though they were wonderfully tasty. 🙂
the black chicken & cordyceps chicken looked great too. again S$13 was kind of ex, but important thing was it must be good. 🙂
& we all decided to order the S$1.30pax yam rice! felt like kook, but white rice also S$0.70. anyway the rice was good. 🙂
i will definitely come back here again to enjoy this yummy dish. 🙂
