The Soup Spoon started its first retail outlet at Raffles City in Jun 2002. If this company has one thing on its mind - it's creating a sensational product that will turn The Soup Spoon into the premier soup establishment in Singapore. Soup should not be relegated to the wings as a bit player - it deserves a place on centre stage! That's what The Soup Spoon is all about. Creating a soup culture, where soup takes its rightful place as the focus of a meal. We aim to provide innovative, fresh and nutritious soups that stand alone, filling enough to satisfy the hungriest patron. We're all about changing people's attitudes to what soup can be - a wholesome meal in itself and a divine culinary experience. In time, the soup culture will produce soup connoisseurs, capable of detecting subtle flavours, nuances and characteristics of a soup, just like wine aficionados.

Asian soups are not my thing. I feel like asking: where is the beef? Thick chunky western soups that you have to ladle out with a backhoe are my thing: mulligatawny, pumpkin, mushroom, and the Soupspoon, by and large, provide just what I like.

Despite the calories, I love the bread bowls, even if it does mean I have to run an extra 5kms after I eat one.

I mentioned the words “by and large”. I have had one bad experience where I felt that the bread was old, stale, ancient, hard: I spoke to the manager. I wrote to the owners. The reply? Sir must be mistaken. That upset me. The customer is always right, right?

But I have forgiven them. One bad apple may spoil a barrel but one stale loaf of bread can be used as croutons, in stuffing, to make breadcrumbs and, if the worst comes to the worst, can be thrown at burglars.

So go along, and enjoy. Their soups are great.

I am a soupaholic, but I haven't been adventurous enough to try anything else except for their mushroom soup and caesar chicken wrap, but these two are enough to make me smile in glee whenever my friends decide to have The Soup Spoon. Their mushroom soup is filled with yummy mushroom bits even until the very last spoon, and not once have I been disappointed by the quality of their food. Even the caesar chicken mushroom wrap made me leave as a very happy customer!

It's always a delight to see a huge bowl of warm soup sitting right under your nose, and it's an even greater delight when it fills your tummy with utmost comfort. So far I think The Soup Spoon is the best place for soupaholics like myself to get a filling soup fix! I aim to try the bread bowl the next time I visit because soup in a bread bowl sounds extreeeemely tasty.

I am a staunch supporter of The Soup Spoon. I love their Tangy Tomato soup, and their sandwiches, wraps and salads are not bad as well. There's just something about scooping up spoonful after spoonful of hot, delicious soup that is comforting. It warms your stomach and makes you feel better.

The Tangy Tomato soup is my favourite because it's just the right amount of sour and spicy. I prefer thick soups compared to clear, bland ones, so Soup Spoon's soups are perfect for my taste buds. I also love the bread that comes with the soup, whether it's the multi-grain nutty one or the plain one, both work equally well as something for me to mop up the last drops of soup with.

It's a great place to go to if you want to catch up with your friends, because it's never too noisy for you to have to shout.

The Soup Spoon brings to mind warm, satisfying meals in the company of close friends, in a cosy environment. I like how thought was put into the interior of their outlets to provide a place for customers to loosen their muscles over warm, wholesome soup.

I haven’t tried a whole lot of their different soup flavours but know that you can never go wrong with a bowl of their Velvety Mushroom. The soup is generously strewn with mushroom bits and have a deep, rich flavour. I also love the small multi-grain bun that comes with it. Perfect for dipping into the soup or eating it on its own!

Price wise, it can range from $8 to $11 and maybe even more per bowl. Not very affordable as an everyday meal for students like myself, but still a welcome end-of-week treat!

I went out with my friends to The Soup Spoon to celebrate the end of our finals together. Needless to say, it was a good choice to go there for dinner. Upon request, The Soup Spoon provides you a sample of your soup choices so you can consider what you would like to buy. Although it is pricey, the bowl I got was huge and absolutely delicious. For those without a big appetite, this may be too filling for you as it really is that tummy-satisfying.

I don't really like their bread because it has a queer sour taste to it. Their outlet down at Kallang Leisure Park is big and has ample space even during dinner time. It also has a great atmosphere; as a graphic designer, I was already pulled in by the interior design of their store. It's a great place to sit down with friends to chat, especially if you just want to unwind after a long day and take your own time.

For starters, I'm not a fan of their soups just because I find it to be on the bland side. I however like their ceasar mushroom wrap! It's light and tasty, although S$9 for a chicken wrap is slightly pricey.

This is more about the bad service I went through one evening. Soup spoon is free seating, but any self-respecting customers would form a line especially if there was only one narrow entrance to the shop. I arrived to a lady waiting at the entrance so I naturally assumed the position behind her. Another teenage boy and his mother (just a guess) came after me but decided to go around the lady in front me and I and scurry for places inside.

None of the staff who witnessed this happening stopped them. In fact they helped them look for tables! I just stood there dumbfounded, engaging in my own pity-party. I got a table and my wrap in the end but also ended up feeling like a really stupid customer.

The Soup Spoon is one of those places where I am sure I can go to in order to get a really decent and affordable meal. Every time I'm in the Orchard area and can't decide what to eat I usually end up in The Soup Spoon.

I honestly haven't tried a soup here that I haven't loved. I usually get the Tokyo Chicken Stew which has generous chunks of succulent chicken in it and never fails to make me feel full and like I'm being super healthy. The pumpkin soup is also great for all the vegetarians out there.

Price wise, its pretty affordable and if you feel like a soup isn't going to do enough to fill you up you can actually get a set with one of the delicious sandwiches too!

The Happiness Meal for Soup Broth Asia Noodle Bar costs $12.80. It includes Vietnamese Braised Chicken Noodles, Side Salad, Iced Milk Tea.

Vietnamese Braised Chicken Noodles is served in quite a big plate. It looks like crispy fried noodles on egg flower sauce, topped with a huge grilled chicken leg. It reminds me of the typical ‘shen mian’ by the zhi char stalls. The chicken is quite tender with the meat easily tears from the bone. The only disappointment is the sauce which is very salty and starchy.

The Side Salad is served with the dressing separated. Tastes quite green by itself but when mixed with the dressing, it tastes quite tangy and refreshing with a hint of fish sauce and lime juice. The Iced Milk Tea is quite forgettable as it is not as milky as I like.

Overall the food is still okay and is served quite fast.

If you're on a diet and trying to avoid too much carbs, go ahead and pick The Soup Spoon. With a range of soups and sandwiches to choose from, the Soup Spoon offers surprisingly heathy options!

I'm a mushroom lover, so my favorite is always the mushroom soup. It's perfectly thick and creamy, yet not overwhelming, and served with finely diced mushrooms bits that are oh-so-yummy in your mouth! For petit-sized girls, I think this will definitely be worth your money because it keeps me full, simply with a small bread on the side for dipping. I tried their Pumpkin soup once and it was very good as well. Smooth and not thick, their pumpkin soup was fragrant yet not overpowering on the taste buds. Topped with those pumpkin seeds, it just made the dish so textural and complete.

For those who are big eaters, there's a range of salads or sandwiches to top up as sides for a very worthy set meal price of just over $10. I'd recommend the Beef sandwich because their patty is juicy and well seasoned, but the Hummus Wrap is always a good and healthy alternative. The Soup Spoon is definitely well worth the money spent!

I love all types of soups, and Soup Spoon is one of my favourite place to go to for a nice, hearty and filling bowl of soup. Some might be skeptical about just having soup for a meal, but the portion is surprisingly filling. All soups come with a free piece of bread too, so the food here is actually quite filling, even for guys.

My favourite soup has got to be the Boston Clam Chowder. The soup is so creamy and choke-full of ingredients. I like how the chunky pieces of chewy clams go well with the soup and vegetables. Perfect combination! Those who are not found of creamy soups should try the Tokyo Chicken Stew, which has a clear but extremely flavourful broth, topped up with huge chunks of chicken meat and vegetables.

Other than soups. Soup Spoon offers salds, sandwiches and wraps as other food options. I like buying their take-home packs too and enjoy their delicious food in the comforts of my home.

Soup Spoon has been a favourite amongst all ages, and it isn't hard to see why. Their soups consist of many healthy and flavourful ingredients and the soups taste divine in a simple, homemade kind of way. Its always my go-to eatery when I'm craving for some comfort food!

I usually have the pumpkin soup, which is simple yet super creamy and tasty soup which always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling in my tummy! I also like the contrasting texture of the crunchy apple and almond bits in the soup. If I'm craving for a more broth-like soup, I'd go for the tokyo chicken stew which has a generous portion of chicken chunks in it as well as an assortment of veggies and mushrooms.

I do feel that a regular bowl of soup with a bread roll is simply insufficient to leave me satiated as I always lick the bowl clean while wanting more. However, Soup Spoon offers a combo meal with your soup - which comes with a drink/fruit, a half salad/sandwich and a soup. This is great as it would turn your whole meal into a wholesome and hearty one!

Another great thing about Soup Spoon is that they also have take-home soup packs, which are convenient soup packages for you to bring home to heat up whenever you want, and you can enjoy comfort food in an instant while chilling on your couch!
