drop by at hong wen mutton soup at bukit timah food centre on the way to meet a friend on 10.4.2015.
apparently the stall previously from beauty world centre has been around for decades.
closing time was 2.30pm & i was there nearer 3pm, anyway the owner served me the last bowl before shuttering the stall.
it should be good, unfortunately it was the worst mutton soup i had tried. will never come back again!
the soup was tasteless except for slight unnatural sweetness of herbs. usually this is balanced by the savoury & robust flavours of the mutton so the soup should be smooth, herbal & very tasty & intense, everything that this was not.
i asked for mutton & stomach. the mutton was soft. there were few for S$5, and basically tasteless even with the chilli.
currently for the chinese mutton soup i have tried, chai chuan tou chinese mutton soup 柴船头羊肉汤 is head & shoulders above the rest.
the 2 stalls at whampoa, yu ji (宇记) chinese herbal mutton soup (羊肉汤) & Herbal Mutton Soup @ Stall #01-75 Whampoa Drive Food Centre were both good.
the stall hougang jing jia mutton soup at old airport road was until today the poorest of the lot. but still better than this one!
