Soup Stock Tokyo @ 313 Somerset

It was really early in the morning, and Soup Stock Tokyo might have just started its service for that day. Part of the Tring 313 Food Trail and our first pit stop, we were going to have soups and rice for breakfast.

It is a self-serve styled place known for its selection of soups. And by that, there are plenty of options to choose from. Have asked the manager, and as of current, its bestseller is the Hokkaido Crab Bisque. Liked that it has three soup sizes for customers to choose from; small, medium and large. The large size is about 350ml, while the small size is about 180ml.

For those that must have rice, good news as Soup Stock Tokyo had introduced two types of curry rice; The Onion Chicken Curry and the Tomato Chicken Curry rice. Better still, they have a "Buddy Curry & Soup Set" combo. Usually, a Curry Soup Set where one gets a curry rice and a small soup for $16.80. Now, with the "Buddy Curry & Soup Set", one gets two sets of curry rice and two small soups plus one drink for just $30.80. That's akin to getting a small discount and a free drink. Now, where's my buddy...

Frankly speaking, am liking the curry rice, especially the Tomato Chicken Curry. That tangy flavour with sweetish undertone from the tomatoes, very likeable tender chicken pieces and plenty of sauce ontop the Japanese rice. In Japan, it is usually served bare, without the parsley garnish. I agree. Can do without. Had thought that I wouldn't want to eat rice early in the morning, but can't help but take in scoops after scoops of rice and curry. Yums.

The brown rice was enjoyable and the onion chicken curry was really mild but fragrant. Comforting flavours.

As for the soups, the Hokkaido Crab Bisque has a smokey flavour to it but was not quite how I'd imagined it to be. The Chicken Vegetable Soup tasted like something that I might choose if am feeling under the weather. It was rather mild and tasted homely. Pork and Tomato Stroganoff might be considered if I want tangy flavours in slurpable form. Personal favourite of mine, would be the Tokyo Beef Borsch. Really flavourful, and has that essence of beef.

Currently, the beef used in the beef borsch soup has some fats. Word has it that it will be changed to a leaner cut sometime soon. But, I must confess that I actually liked it the way it is/was now.

SG50 Challenge before 9th August, hurry!
