During the award ceremony for the Singapore Blog Awards last Wednesday, my mum and I went to The Soup Spoon to grab some light dinner. Somehow we felt we would be having a rumbling stomach throughout the night.
Mum ordered Beef Goulash. It was good, savoury and chunky pieces of tender beef were served. It was what I would call “A creamy Minestrone” and the loaf of mixed wheat bread (I think) provided made the Goulash into an excellent umami dip. Burp. That was good.
I particularly enjoyed the Garlic Bread or as it is known at The Soup Spoon, Garlicky Herbed Foccacia. Crispy toasted Foccacia bread with the fragrance of garlic served with a dip of what I suspect to be a thickened version of the Beef Goulash. Very nice though. But why only 3 pieces..
Boston Clam Chowder in Breadbowl – Its a meal all together.
For me personally, I ordered the Boston Clam Chowder upsized to the Breadbowl variety. Woots! Its chunky, creamy clam chowder served up in a huge hollowed piece of bread. It was a treat decimating the “bowl” bit by bit when I slurped all the soup up.
A generous portion was definitely given and even I had difficulty finishing it up. Lovely clams and the potatoes were a major plus! Though it was a little sweet, with perhaps it could do with a little more salt and a big dash of ground black pepper, it was still enjoyable.
I dare you to finish this by yourself. Double dare!
Gordonator (another finalist) made his presence in a Stormtrooper’s outfit. I think he’s part of the security team for George.
I was the first to arrive, so managed to grab a quick shot of Supper Club. The real deal is further in where there are elongated beds for teams of people to lie back and relax.
