Soup Central, Caltex House

Hungarian Goulash

I used to go to Soup Central a lot when there was one at International Plaza, but that has long since closed. Today I found one of their outlets at Caltex House (30 Raffles Place #01-31, 6720-SOUP), with generally the same soups like bacon & cheese (and so-called "free flow baguette") as well as of course the Hungarian Goulash. While many of the other soups here are pretty good too, the goulash is the one that draws 'em in. Fortunately, it was pretty much the same as I remembered it, with stewed vegetables, tender meat, and a pretty spicy kick too. I have no idea if this is authentic or not as I've never been to Hungary before, but even if it's a local interpretation of Eastern European food, it's good (and much better than that Soup Spoon competitor). Too bad they don't have the butter rice that the old place used to have though.
