  • Turtle Soup

    If you like turtle soup...(i know i know...i'm not a PC)

    403, Guillemard Road (opposite Kong Hwa School)... Park along L.or 36 Geylang.

    Tasted the soup($22 for half) over the weekend and $2 eggs. Nice soup! Got a good sleep after that!

        Can't be any more humane than how they rip the fins off live sharks....no I'm not gonna support the industry by eating turtle soup but I'm just curious what it tastes like.

          since i saw the ripping of fins off live sharks(years ago on a documentary on tv) & throwing of them back into the seas bloody & all, i've stopped eating shark's fins. too gruesome to the eyes to even stomach & enjoy, same reason i don eat turtle soup(not tt i saw the process of slaughtering but hey ppl keep terrapins & they are the same family!)

            I love turtle soup! my fave stall is in Geylang L.or 19 (i think). Just don't let me see how they kill the turtle i usually pretend that i'm drinking some double-boiled herbal chicken soup or something

              Hey Keiko, so does turtle meat taste like chicken or anything? Texture?

              Sorry to gross out you politically correct people...but I'm really really curious and wouldn't drink / eat the stuff myself!

              P.S. Wanda, when you do make it over here, and we take you out to sample our island's gastronomic delights....don't ask what it is....just eat!!! *LOL*

                Hey Keiko, so does turtle meat taste like chicken or anything? Texture?
                some part of the turtle meat (dun know which part) can be quite tough, dry and chewy just like chicken breast after they've been boiled for a long time.

                ok, here's the gross part (my apologies to the PC pple )..........
                i've like the parts that have bits of cartilege / skin stuck on the meat, was told that that's the thigh. Meat texture is softer and the skin adds to the smooth texture.

                Taste wise, can't quite taste the meat cos all its flavour is already in the soup after all the boiling. But i love the chilli dip that comes with it.

                like what Dol said, u can request for eggs (tho' i'm not too keen on those).
                Included in the soup is usually blood cubes.....taste like chicken blood.

                ok.....i think i've totally grossed u pple out.

                  Yup, keiko said it...the meat is much tougher to chew (maybe it brew for quite some time) than chicken meat....it just taste like herbal soup. Err...i don't want to know how they kill the turtles..

                        I know there used to be one near Genting lane, as my dad used to patron that. I would never think of trying that

                          My favourite too

                          Try the one at Lavender Foodcourt, its good, known as Kin Turtle soup.

                          As for the Geylang, I guess you were referring to Tai Seng Turtle Soup, try their branch at Upp paya lebar road.

                            Tried the one at 403, Guillemard Road (opposite Kong Hwa School). You can park along Lorong 36 Geylang. It's just located at a conrner of the shophouses. Soup costs $22 (for half) and $2 eggs.

                            You might want to try a few located at Jalan Beseh Hawker centre, level 2.
