I love how Soup Spoon offers an alternate choice of food, not pastas, not fried chicken, not Asian cuisine, but hearty soup. Love it, especially on cold days!

I had always viewed The Soup Soon as an over-priced place that served Western-style soups, something I was not used to growing up in an Asian family. I had always thought that soups couldn't possibly be a meal on its own, much less a healthy alternative to regular fare. That was until I tried their soups, which won me over easily.

The soups are thick and flavourful, with each bowl of soup usually comes with a side of artisanal bread. The first soup I tried was the mushroom soup, which was chockful of sliced mushrooms and was creamy and rich. The bread, although not warm, was an excellent accompaniment to the hearty soup.

My first experience at The Soup Spoon totally changed my outlook on Western-style soups and following that, I have tried various soups at The Soup Spoon. I am not disappointed by the different soups that I have tasted thus far. A nice warm bowl of soup indeed warms the heart, and The Soup Spoon has warmed my heart with their delicious soups.

Don't be fooled - a warm bowl of soup may not seem sufficient for a meal, but after downing one of the Soup Spoon's creamy soups (or their one non-creamy one), one would beg to differ.

Whatever it is the soup you order, you can be assured that it will be two things: hot, and homely. Having tried their Boston Clam Chowder, Velvety Mushroom Stroganoff, Tangy Tomato, and their Simon/Garfunkel Chicken and Mushroom Ragout, I can safely say that while their different soups offer different variety and flavours, they are all tasty nonetheless. They are certainly generous with their ingredients when it matters - plenty of mushroom in their VMS and clams/seafood in their clam chowder.

They keep 8 soups on their permanent list - these are soups that people have generally shown to like, but if you get bored of them, The Soup Spoon has seasonal promotions where they have "chef speciality" soups (with three choices) which can spice up your Soup Spoon experience if you've grown tired of drinking the same soups over and over again.

Of course, there are also their wraps and salads, which are done surprisingly well for a company which specialises in soups. For under $15, you can get a full (and rather filling) meal with a half salad/wrap (which really, is a full one especially if you're a light eater), soup, bread, and a drink (I recommend Ice Lemon Tea since it comes in a cup instead of a can).

The Soup Spoon provides a wholesome and complete meal experience - it's my go to restaurant when I'm feeling under the weather, in the mood for something lighter (that's where the salads come in), or simply have no idea where to go. Their homely environment and warm soup will complete your experience. On a final note - they also offer a 10% discount with NTUC or Nebo cards, so that's quite a plus point there.

Soup Spoon is where I will go when I want to have a healthy meal. The calories are all displayed on the menu board so you will know how much calories you consume when ordering a soup.

I love the SG chicken and mushroom ragout, meatless minestrone and tokyo chicken stew, although I find meatless minestrone and chicken stew not filling enough for me. Hence, I will usually order a set with the Caesar salad.

I like it that when I order the set meal, I have the freedom to choose between a drink, a packet of chips or an apple.

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.

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!

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!
