The Soup Spoon Union is actually a union of 3 restaurants, namely the said Soup Spoon, The Handburger and the Soup Broth Asia. They have an open concept kitchen where you can see the chefs working around preparing the dishes.
The restaurant boosts a combined menu with an infographic at the back which explains how you go about ordering your food. I ordered 2 slider burgers ($3.50 each) – Battered Dory and Caesar Chicken and one Mocha ($4.80). After placing my order at the cashier, I am handed this disc-like thing to be placed on the table. I thought I will collect my food once it starts blinking because it is an electronic device but the food was served to me. Hmm.
I tried the Chicken Cesar but decided to order it again for my sister to try since I thought it was nice. I like the burgers as they are toasted with butter and cheese at the undersides. Really yummy. It is a bit messy when eating this mini version of the Handburger. Its over in a few mouthfuls but it is good if you do not want a full meal.
The Mocha came in a cup which I thought looked pretty cool but it looks like it has seen better days. Anyway I was a bit disappointed cause I thought there would be some cool latte art like what was featured on the menu but didn’t have any. Still. The coffee is served lukewarm. Nothing to rave about.
Overall I like the restaurant concept and would definitely return for a mix of soups, burgers and noodles. There is also no service charge and for the nice ambience, why not?
