The most tasty seafood soup I’ve ever had – Yan Ji Seafood Soup. Stall owner Aaron Khoo, banker turned hawkerpreneur, learnt from the original Yan Ji Seafood Soup owner in Woodlands, and setup this branch here at Old Airport Road.
He tells me that the reason it’s good is because it’s not the standard pre-cooked soup stock, and then just add in noodles and fish when the order comes. Each order is cooked fresh for 3 minutes on high heat to bring out the full flavour of all the ingredients, just like a home cooked meal (for this reason, you can’t just ask for more soup top up because they don’t have it pre-cooked!).
I had the crayfish soup ($10) and the bowl was full of good stuff – cray fish, a large prawn, fish, minced pork and veggie’s. Wifey had the standard seafood soup ($6) and it was really good too! Highly recommended!
