REALLY GOOD
1st CORN POTAGE コーンポタージュ
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Been wanting to try making this for a while and today it finally happened. Had meant to strain the soup but it was almost like squeezing water from a stone. So I dumped the puréed bits right back to ensure this soup would feed enough of us. Great with Bread Ahead’s freshly-baked grissini.
3rd NZ KUMARA WITH GRUYERE
The Soup Spoon Union, Singapore
Roasted Kumara | Pumpkin | Cauliflower| French Lentils | Onions | Ginger | Garlic | Balsamic Vinegar | Honey | Butter | Marmite | Cream | Milk | Cream Cheese | Salt | Sugar | Grape Must Extract | Spices The soup was delicious: creamy, cheesy, and wholesome, combining two of my favorite vegetarian ingredients: sweet potato and pumpkin. Definitely worth putting on the regular menu! @foodiefoodie you’d love this!
4th THOMAS KELLER'S BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP WITH BROWN BUTTER
Soots Cook Nook, Private
An adaption of TK’s by Amanda Hesser. This one’s completely from scratch (even the stock, y’all)! But so worth it!
5th VEGETARIAN AUTUMN SQUASH SOUP
Panera Bread, Highland Park
A rich blend of butternut squash and pumpkin simmered in a vegetable broth honey, apple juice, cinnamon and a hint of curry, then finished with sweet cream and topped with roasted and salted pumpkin seeds. 
7th CORN CREAM SOUP 玉米奶油浓汤
Saizeriya Star Vista, Singapore
A must try and apparently the recipe has been improved. I liked it and appreciated the generous serving of corn kernels in the soup.
8th 汤师父招牌汤-参鸡汤 SOUPER TANG SIGNATURE SOUP
Souper Tang, Johor Bahru
Double boiled and set to “revive, boost energy, enhance concentration...” and get this, “reverse aging.”
PRETTY GOOD
9th AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN’S SILKY BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Not the silkiest I’ve had (there were still fibers from sautéing the seeds and fibers after pureeing) but still solid on flavor and the cinnamon-sugar croutons helped enhance it a tad.
15th HALF & HALF SET - NZ
The Soup Spoon, Singapore
This season's Souper Chef Special features Kiwi inspirations, namely the Māori-Inspired Boil-Up & NZ Butter Chicken Masala
16th MĀORI-INSPIRED BOIL-UP
The Soup Spoon, Singapore
Inspired by the Māori boil-up, this soup of puréed, slightly sharp watercress is paired with anise-flavored fennel, roasted potatoes and sweet apple. Instead of the traditional pork ribs, the chef has added cream and a special blue cheese aioli using an artisan cheese called Kikorangi Blue for added tang.
17th NZ BUTTER CHICKEN MASALA SOUP
The Soup Spoon, Singapore
Inspired by New Zealand’s butter masala chicken pie, this soup is a non-spicy tomato curry with masala-spiced chicken, chickpeas, sweet potatoes and warming spices, tamed with cream and butter. It was my first time eating curry as soup. Wish I’d had some bread to go with.
18th HALF & HALF SET
The Soup Spoon, Singapore
Braised Chicken in Milk + NZ Kumara with Gruyere Will describe the chicken stew since the kumara soup was described in an earlier post. “Chicken marinated in lots of lemons and mustard, cooked in a milky broth with button mushrooms, chunks of potatoes and carrots and more lemons and mustard to produce a tangy and creamy stew. Tarragon for an anise-like earthy, minty flavour, balanced with the sweetness of prunes and pumpkin.” It was not as sensational as it was described.
21st SOUP OF THE DAY
Jack's Place, Singapore
Cream of chicken and mushroom.
25th 삼계탕 SAMGYE TANG
Sisters BBQ Korean Family Restaurant, Johor Bahru
I didn’t get to have much of this Ginseng Chicken Soup, so it was hard to fully assess. From what little I could tell, it was light and wholesome-tasting.
26th ESSENTIAL FRENCH ONION SOUP
Soots Cook Nook, Private
This was a slightly tastier version of the French onion soup at Houlihan’s and Panera Bread. It was also maybe too much work for what it was worth.
29th 花胶炖海中宝
The St. Regis Singapore, Singapore
Double-boiled Superior Fish Maw Soup, Chicken, Conpoy and Cordycep Flower
30th A LIL’ BETTER THAN WHATEVER...SOUP
A Noodle Story, Singapore
The clear soups that normally accompany many hawker dishes here often taste like a lazy afterthought but this was a little more flavorful (kind of herbal?) than the regular salty but generally devoid of flavor broths. Not out of this world, but you know they gave it a little thought.
