I’ve received complaints about how my recent entries have been too specialised / technical and haven’ wrote about mundane stuff like about my boring life. We’ve not had a food recommendation at the Asylum for a long time so here goes…
There’s this place we’ve been going for our sliced fish soup needs. I believe I first went there with my parents. I brought Jo there some time back and she’s been craving for it now and then every since.
Located at the 2nd level of Taman Jurong Market and Food Centre, China Fish Soup serves up a bowl of slice fish soup for 3 dollars. The simple soup contains just some vege, bitter gourd and, the main attraction, the big slices of fish. We’d usually eat it with rice which costs 50 cents each (increased recently from 30 cents).
Unlike other sliced fish where it tend to be rather flaky, the fish served here is big and supple, almost like fish steak! Even with the bitter gourd, the soup tastes sweet and savoury, not pepperish like how Jo claims most fish soup are. I like to eat my fish with the chilli which contains tiny chopped garlic I believe.

For someone who doesn’t even like fish to want to drive down to Taman Jurong just to eat sliced fish soup, I think it speaks for itself. If you like sliced fish, you should really give it a try.
I can’t remember the unit number but it’s on the second level. If you ride the escalator up from the first level, it’s at the top right corner of the food centre. It should be hard to miss. I’ve provided a photo of the shop for reference.
