Lim Soup (Bukit Merah Central)

Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50
We arrived at Lim Soup in Dong Fong Fatt Coffee Shop at 6pm on a Friday evening. Lim Soup specialises in serving healthy yet tasty soups.


The main purpose of our visit was to try its Double Boiled Old Coconut Chicken. However, we were told that the soup was sold out. In the end, I went over to the next stall to try the dry Minced Pork You Mian which was excellent! On the other hand, the partner ordered Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50 (which was one of the few soup left) and Organic Brown Rice $0.80.
Organic Brown Rice $0.80
The Organic Brown Rice which cost $0.80 comes with a generous helping of stir-fried cabbage topped with fried whitebait (silver fish). The brown rice was a tad too hard and dry.
Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50
The Old Cucumber Pork Ribs Soup $4.50 consists of ingredients such as old cucumber, almond seeds, red dates, Chinese wolfberries and pork ribs. The soup was such a disappointment. The soup was so sweet that it overwhelmed other flavours. I have never drank such sweet old cucumber soup before. In additional, the old cucumber seems to be layered (i.e. thinner). The only positive aspect was that the pork rib was tender. Needless to say, the partner regretted ordering this soup.

Hai Xian Zhu Zhou 海鲜煮粥 (Yishun)

Seafood Koka Noodles with Egg $5
Hai Xian Zhu Zhou 海鲜煮粥 is a stall located at a coffeeshop called Choh Dee Place in Yishun; along Yishun Street 21. 
What makes Hai Xian Zhu Zhou stands out is its Koka Instant Noodles which is available with pork / chicken / seafood and/or tom yam flavour. The stall also sells crispy noodles, mee sua, ee mian and porridge.
Menu
The menu pasted at the side of the wall next to the stall stating the prices of the dishes. The Tom Yam Koka Noodles price was missing. 
Left to right: Seafood Koka Noodles with Egg $5, Tom Yam Pork Koka Noodles with Egg $3.7
We visited on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. We had to wait for a good 20 minutes before our order was served. Do note, you would need to let them know your table number when ordering. We orderd the Seafood Koka Noodles with Egg $5 and Tom Yam Pork Koka Noodles with Egg $3.7. 
Seafood Koka Noodles with Egg $5
The Seafood Koka Noodles with Egg $5 was presented nicely. The addition of the prawns added a bright vibrant colour to this dish. From the above photo, you might not have known that this was cooked with instant noodles if I had not told you! 

There was a variety of seafood such as cuttlefish, sliced fish and prawns. Although the prawns were fresh, the sliced fish had a strong fishy taste. The soup had a strong hint of prawn flavour such that it masked the sweetness of the other seafood. The Koka Noodles was cooked just right; not too soft and not too hard, and the noodles was springy. 
Tom Yam Pork Koka Noodles with Egg $3.7
This was the Tom Yam Pork Koka Noodles with Egg $3.7.
Tom Yam Pork Koka Noodles with Egg $3.7
It consisted of vegetables, sliced lean pork meat, minced meat and an egg. The Koka Noodles was cooked just right. As for the Tom Yam soup, if it was slightly less spicy, it would have been perfect. This was quite a good dish for a cold day.

Personally, we both preferred the Tom Yam Pork Koka Noodles. Instant Noodles had never tasted so delicious! Perfect excuse to eat instant noodles (in moderation - hopefully).
Chicken Porridge with Egg $3.50, Pork Porridge with Egg $3.50
During another visit on a Saturday, we decided to try their porridge for lunch.  We ordered the Chicken Porridge with Egg $3.50 and Pork Porridge with Egg $3.50
Chicken Porridge with Egg $3.50
Chicken Porridge with Egg $3.50
The Chicken Porridge with Egg $3.50 was served with chunks of chicken meat, egg, chopped coriander, fried shallots, You Tiao (deep fried dough fritters), and a dash of soya sauce and pepper. The porridge was disappointing. It was watery, tasteless and not heated up enough such that the raw egg which was added could not even get cooked properly.
Pork Porridge with Egg $3.50
Pork Porridge with Egg $3.50
The Pork Porridge with Egg $3.50 was served with slices of lean meat, minced meat and liver. It was also watery and tasteless. Enough said..

The porridge at Hai Xian Zhu Zhou was such a let down. You would be better off ordering their Koka Instant noodles.
