Established in 2012 by husband and wife Mr Chen Hua Qiang and Ms Qu Fa Di, Ah Er Soup has been serving traditional herbal soups for almost a decade now. Their rich herbal soups, full of premium ingredients, have earned them the Michelin Bib Gourmand award. With eight outlets across the island, their popularity is evident.

Ah Er Soup offers eight types of soup on their menu. Besides their signature dish, Buddha Jumps Over The Wall ($7), they also have fan-favourites such as the Lotus Root Peanut Pork Ribs Soup ($4.50) and White Radish Pork Ribs Soup ($4.50). You can pair the soup with two different types of rice, Steamed White Rice ($0.50) or Pumpkin Rice ($0.80). Head down before peak meal hours as they tend to sell out really quickly!

2. Herbal Soup


An interesting take on the usual ceramic pot soups are Herbal Soup’s charcoal-fired herbal soups. Here, you get a range of soups from clean and light to rich and heavy, great even for those who don’t fancy the taste of Chinese herbs. If you like stronger flavours, check out their Black Bean Pig’s Tail Soup ($4.50). Alternatively, go for Sweet Corn Pork Ribs Soup ($4) for something cleaner-tasting instead.

Note: Leong Wei Roasted Delight is temporarily closed from 25 July to 12 August 2023.

From its name, you may think that this stall does not belong on the list. On top of serving delicious roasted meat with rice, Leong Wei Roasted Delight also serves soup at an incredibly affordable price. You can choose from 10 different variations of soups, such as Chicken Lotus Roots Soup to the more traditional Cantonese-style Salted Vegetable with Duck Wing Soup. The soups at Leong Wei Roasted Delight are all priced at $2.50 a bowl: the cheapest on this list. Head down early, because there’s always a queue at this stall! They also sell out pretty quick.
