Whipping up this mouthwatering dish is no small feat. Every morning, the hawkers carefully prepare the fresh mutton, allowing the meat to simmer for up to three hours until it’s meltingly tender.

The mutton soup here is cooked Teochew-style, which gives it a gentle peppery note. Online reviews have also lauded the broth’s robust flavour, enhanced by herbal undertones that aren’t too overpowering. You can request an extra serving of soup too—for free!

A straw is also included with your dish, so you can savour the bone marrow in all its collagen-rich goodness.

As for the meat, it’s said to be well-cooked with a hint of sweetness. Chai Chuan Tou opts for New Zealand mutton in their soup, which is known for being less gamey compared to the commonly used Australian lamb. The meat is best savoured with a dip of their zesty chilli sauce.

If you’re feeling adventurous, we recommend adding mutton brain to your soup. While this unconventional ingredient may raise an eyebrow or two, we’ve heard good things about it, —it’s said to have a delicate flavour and creamy texture.
