Unlike the spinach soup with century and salted egg, the one with YTF is much lighter. The broth is mild and clear with natural sweetness in there. Somehow the taste of YTF overwhelmed the natural taste of the soup and I preferred the former instead. Add $0.50 for rice or noodles if you need some carbs to fill your belly but I feel that the portion is huge and good enough to go light on carbs 》$4

The spinach soup with century and salted egg comes with minced meat, mushroom, wolfberries and a huge amount of spinach. The soup is light and savoury while the century and salted eggs added a touch of richness and saltiness to the soup. The eggs did help to thicken and intensify the soup, giving it a more satisfying fuller-bodied consistency - lots of umami flavours in there. Add $0.50 for rice or noodles if you need some carbs to fill your belly 》$4

Comes with fish slices, chunks of handmade meatballs and prawns in fragrant and flavourful seafood soup packed with umami.

They serve three different types of fish (dory, batang, red grouper) where I chose to go with batang that was fresh and firm. The prawns were big and plump while their handmade meatball was flavourful with bits and pieces of mushroom 》$8/big

**They were previously known as Sin Kee seafood soup back when they were in Marsiling and have since rebranded to Jia Li seafood soup in Aljunied.

The dumplings were soft and firm in texture but the soup was too lightly seasoned/bland that I feel it could have been better 》$4

The red grouper seafood soup comes with ingredients such as slices of red grouper, 3pcs of tiger prawns, handmade minced pork balls, chunks of tomatoes and fish maw. The unami seafood soup is savoury and naturally sweet from the seafood. The red grouper was fresh and succulent while the prawns came with a nice crunch with sweetness. This is a perfect hot bowl of unami seafood soup with rich flavours to counter the cold evening weather 》$12 + $1 Fish Maw

The soup of the day on our visit was pork ribs with lotus root. It was something light, sweet and flavourful to start off our meal while waiting for the claypot rice to arrive 》$9.80

As recommended by the stall owner, I got myself the herbal chicken soup which helps to

• Improve Blood Deficiency
• Improve Energy and Shortness of Breath
• Improve Lung and Spleen Immune Function
• Dispel Cold and Warms in the Body

It came with a drumstick and goji berries. The soup was light and the taste of herbs was not too strong. I ordered this as an add-on to our meal. Alternatively, you can order a bowl of rice to pair it with their soup and complete your meal 》$6

It's made all-in-one pot with a chicken leg, fish maw, mushroom, sea coconut, red dates, and wolfberries. The soup was rich and slightly thickened with a distinct taste of Chinese herbs. The soup is also refillable so fret not and just indulge in it. We ordered this together with their pumpkin rice to go along with other dishes 》$29.80

The XXL bowl is recommended to be shared between two pax, served with a choice of thick/thin bee hoon or rice. Featuring in the huge bowl is a whole deep rock lobster, flower crab, batang fish, squid, pacific clams, white clams, tomato and tofu in a broth packed with rich flavours from different types of crustaceans.

The soup contains sweetness from flower crab and lobster, accompanied by a good mix of seafood and umami goodness. We added huge scallops for $3 each and found it worth every penny. What we got was definitely a huge bowl of premium seafood at affordable prices. Indeed a comforting and satisfying meal when we paid them a visit on a cold and rainy evening without the need to brave the long waiting time as seen on other reviews.

For those who are looking for smaller portions, they also have L ($8.80) and XL ($18) bowl meant for one pax. The L bowl excludes flower crab and lobster which also means that you will be missing out on some sweetness from those crustaceans or go for XL bowl that is similar to XXL except it is 40% of the portion served for one pax.

This place is highly raved for their herbal chicken mee sua/soup. It does not have a very strong herbal smell with a hint of dang gui. We gotten a large bowl of mee sua seperately hence no herbal noodles for me. Guess I’ll be back for their herbal noodles.

I'm in a relationship with food. Why can't we just declare our never ending love and vows towards some food item? I'm sure that would not result in divorces.
