Tanjong Pagar, Telok Ayer and Chinatown are filled with a substantial selection of good food — authentic Korean and Chinese cuisine, hole-in-the-wall cafes, izakayas and bars — you name it. But where do you go when you want to find something that’s comforting, filling and affordable at the same time?

Look no further, tucked inside the Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre just a few minutes walk away from the iconic Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, Hot City Seafood Soup is a must-try for those looking for an easy and indulgent meal that’s also (super) forgiving on the wallet.

For just S$3, you can get a satisfying bowl of either Braised Pork Belly Rice with Peanuts or Braised Pork Trotter Rice (or S$6 for both, because it’s so economical!) — and yes, the servings are generous with heaps of tender pork and gravy blanketed over a bed of fragrant white jasmine rice.

If you’re looking for something soupy to go with your rice, there’s also the Classic Seafood Soup (S$5) and Handmade Meatball Soup (S$5). Imagine this — a hearty bowl of braised pork rice and a full serving of umami seafood soup at just S$8 in the Central Business District area, it’s a pretty tough deal to beat!

At a slightly higher price (but still really manageable), you can even get the Crayfish Seafood Soup (S$10), Red Grouper Seafood Soup (from S$12) and many other variants of seafood soups — perfect for cold and rainy days (and hangovers). 

The next time you’re in need of a comfort meal that’s a bang for your buck and a hug for your soul, check out Hot City Seafood Soup in the Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre!
