Loving Heart Cafe

I was feeling low energy and had orginally wanted to visit Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food 观音斋 to take some tonic soup to perk up some energy level but unfortunately it was crowded and tonic soup were sold out for the day. I moved to Loving Heart Cafe, a few doors away to try my luck but they did not serve tonic soup but instead I found on its menu : Indian traditional Soup! It is actually stewed mutton soup and has much similar effect as the Chinese tonic soup. As I had not touched this non vegetarian version of soup for ages, I was curious to try. It was served immediately, with strong herbal smell and coarser than the slight clear soup version that I thought it was to be.  It came with sesame bread pieces which tasted just okay but the mock mutton pieces fully absorbed the essence of the soup. Sprinkled with parsley & mock fried onion slices, it is considered quite a nice "curried" soup. Within minutes of taking, I could feel blood circulating...
On the menu are other interesting dishes like steamed dumplings, Hainan noodles, Roti Prata with banana slices, etc, which I will likely return to try.:-)

Located at Blk134, Geylang East Ave1, #01-219, same HDB block as Kwan inn Vegetarian Food.
