China Square Fish Soup (Blanco Court), Tanjong Pagar XChange
Working in Tanjong Pagar ("TP") means that for lunch I only eat around here, which is not so bad really, since you have a wide range of choices, from cheap eats to even atas to the max eats if you really wanted. For starters there's Amoy FC, Maxwell FC, all legends of food gastronomy in their own right, and bestway building; then you have mid-tier outlets such as the Indonesian Restaurant "worong Lele", among others. But well, hop down to the tanjong pagar xchange and you'll be rewarded with a gem of a fish soup,China Square Fried Fish Soup. "Za - yu " tang, this place apparently used to be at Blanco Court before moving to China Square and now here.
At lunchtime, the queue is insane; but the good thing is that they are very fast so the food arrives quickly. The fish chunks coated and fried are delicious: with a hint of sweetness, fresh, tasty and pretty generous. The soup's quite robust if a bit oily - good for slurping up noodles with. And the fried eggs on top add sinful pleasures to the dish. This is certainly not one healthy fish soup, if I may caution. But it is good. (8/10)
