Tracy extended her invite to me to the Pre-Launch of the Soup Spoon's 'The 2nd Edition, Japan Souper Inspiration' event at their Suntec City's outlet.
We started off our tasting with some addictive healthy Japanese sides, such as Edamame beans and Iced Sencha.
I love the yummy Chirashi Soba very much! I simply can't get enough of this appetiser as the soba and chicken meat chunks tasted super delicious.
Vegan Miso Red Rice Stew with Wakame was the first soup that was rendered to us at the tasting event. In Japan, vegetarianism is not a common practise and lately, there was a push by the Japanese government to list restaurants serving vegetarian food in a bid to cater to tourists who are vegetarians or who have special dietary needs.
Souperchef Anna created this healthy vegan stew which is made of tofu, cabbages, sweet potatoes, wakame and healthy red rice. Togarashi is then added as a special condiment for the stew.
The soup tasted light but was flavorful. I love the generous portions of ingredients that were served within the soup.
Another nice soup creation from Japan Souper Inspiration is the Mizutaki X Keihan Chicken Stew. It is a truly traditional, nutritious and comfort food from Japan. To me, this is one of the best chicken soup I've ever have, as the soup is rich in flavor and filled with collagen. Mizutaki is one of the classic stews eaten in Hakata and Keihan is a soup with rice and chicken, shredded omelette and Shiso leaf.
I love the barley rice which blended well with the soup and the marinated chicken tasted yummy too!
The last soup of the night was Barramundi Miso Stew, and it won our hearts. I rated it as my favorite among all due to its strong aroma and enticing flavor. The ingredients used for the stew were Kuhlbarra Barramundi fish, cabbages, leeks, carrots, shitake mushroom, potatoes and onions which made the soup an extremely delicious one!
The Barramundi Miso Stew is a miracle soup food and brain booster that keeps us looking youthful too!
We ended our tasting session with a slice of Sesame Cake. The texture was light and fluffy and the sweetness was just right for me!
