The Soup Bar

After spending 10 years working in the kitchens of places like The Ritz Carlton and Brasserie Gavroche, chef Gary Lum decided to set up shop in a hawker space selling soups, pasta and salad at pocket-friendly prices ($4.80 to $5.80). Take your pick from choices like carrot and cumin soup, beef stew with red wine, spaghetti bolognese, tuna nicoise salad and more.
