Uncle Soup @ Engineering Canteen, NUS

As they say, you can get value for money eats in NUS Canteens. Colleagues and I, we headed to the Engine Canteen yesterday.

Not feeling 100% well, so decided to have some soupy stuff, another colleague too had this. We saw that there's a new stall. Uncle Soup. What a 'cute' name.



The Ginseng Chicken soup is not bad at all. Comparable to the food court ones, but not the food court prices. It's only $3.50



Rice extra 30 cents, forget the rice. We both did not finish our rice.
The other colleague had Indian food that he was craving. haha...

Personally as someone who eats at engin canteen on almost a daily basis (saturdays too!), I think the Ginseng Chicken is probably the only thing good about the stall. Their Bak Kut Teh is literally pepper water (ok my standard for bak kut teh is quite high), their fish soup seems rather plain.

Oh yes, sometimes they have special dishes like Apple Fish soup :D

Arzhou, thanks for the tip. OK, looks like we chose the right food to order. Two person ordered same thing too. LOL..

All the best for your exams!

Hi there, Keropok Man, thanks for dropping by my blog. I love keropok by the way, once I get started, I can't stop! Hmmm.. I like soup , but nothing too herbal. I don't mind the Goji berries, but I don't quite like the smell of ginseng. Where do you find the time to do 2 blogs? I'm finding it harder and harder to make an up-date once a week!

Cheers,

Carol

Thanks Keropok. Maybe you want to try reviewing all the canteen food in NUS?

arzhou,

think there are many more cheaper and more tasty food around NUS than in campus itself! hehe...

oh for the love of food,

i use to hate it too, the smell of ginseng, mum used to pack it for us to bring overseas when we were all studying, i would bring the whole pack back end of the year and get a scolding.

i guess when i get older, my taste buds changed. haha...

KM, Arzhou mentioned about Apple Fish soup, that would be good for your throat too. Cooling. It might be good for your running nose too :)

i've tried the fish soup...quite bland, actually. The preserved vegetables did not add savouriness to the soup. must try the ginseng chicken..thanks for the info!
