a friend bough lunch today on 17.10.2014. 🙂

we went to whampoa drive food centre to try the chinese herbal mutton soup. we had both taken mutton soup from the other stall yuji (宇记), just a few stalls away on the same back row of whampoa food centre, and also the at chai chuan tou chinese mutton soup 柴船头羊肉汤 @ bukit merah view, and wanted to compare notes. 🙂

we had a small S$8 mixed mutton soup 羊杂汤 PLUS a S$7 large mutton rib soup.

the verdict?

it seemed to me that there was no a great deal of difference between the 2 stalls at whampoa – this one & yuji (宇记). the mutton balls (not my favourite) seemed better than yuji, the ribs & tendon were good, & not much of tripe, same as yuji. quantity wise, S$8 here & S$7 at yuji also not much difference.

the mutton rib soup had a lot more mutton (of course). the soup was good both here & at yuji. 🙂

for me, overall  chai chuan tou 柴船头 offered much better satisfaction, a lot more shiok! the tripes were the large pieces type & quantity wise i think more for a S$6 (large) serving, and the mutton ribs were tastier. the soup was very tasty but maybe slightly less sweet herbal taste & more robust mutton taste? not sure…reason to go back to chai chuan tou 柴船头 again. haha! 🙂

Good Chinese Herbal Mutton Soup (羊肉汤) @ Yu Ji Whampoa Market on 19Sep2014 Whampoa Market on 19Sep2014

ning kee mutton soup

yu ji (宇记) chinese herbal mutton soup (羊肉汤)

i came to whampoa drive food centre with my sis recently & i had the hoover fish soup & 幸福潮州小食 pig trotters.

i saw then there were 2 stalls with mutton soup so decided to try out yu ji (宇记) chinese herbal mutton soup (羊肉汤) on 19.9.2014.

i ordered the 4 in 1 mixed soup which had mutton balls, mutton ribs, tripes & tendons, small portion for S$7.

the soup was good. the portions were ok overall. mutton balls not good. there were hardly any tripe, very tiny pieces & not many. the mutton ribs were ok. there was 2 pieces of mutton leg so quite a bit of tendons.

comparing with the very shiok S$6 mutton soup at Chai Chuan Tou 柴船头羊肉汤 at blk115 bukit merah view, i have to say that 柴船头羊肉汤 is still better. it had a lot more mutton ribs & they were more tender & tastier, and there were a lot of nice tripe pieces. but it was a 2 in 1 which had only mutton ribs & tripes, so quantity wise maybe quite comparable & tendons are more expensive & yu ji’s tendons were very nice & generous portions. 🙂

anyway this is definitely a stall i would come if i come to whampoa market.
