When our friend, Wayne told us that there is a stall in Eastpoint Mall selling fusion popiah, it alerted our food rada and we purposely made a trip down to the far Eastern side of Singapore to check out Souperstar at Eastpoint Mall. The folk behind Souperstar is non other than the 2nd generation of Fortune Food which specialized in popiah skins and kueh pie tee since 2004. The business has since grown from a small hawker stall at Geylang Bahru hawker centre, to a wholesale and home delivery business.
Sesame Chicken 4/5
Creating the new fusion popiahs is Wei Ting and Wei Ling who has grown up with the business, Using what they known best, the popiah skin, they are introducing Singaporean to the new age popiah with a twist. I would prefer to call it the new Singapore Wrap.
Sweet Thai Chicken Popiah 3.8/5
Instead of the usual shredded turnip, the popiah is replaced with salad greens. The Sesame Chicken Popiah ($3.80) comes with slices of roasted chicken, cherry tomatoes, coral lettuce and white sesame sauce. It is like having a bowl of salad but in a wrap form. If you prefer something that is more intense in flavour, then the Sweet Thai Chicken Popiah ($3.80) is an option. It comes with roasted chicken, fresh mango, cilantro, coral lettuce, sweet Thai chilli mayonnaise.
Seafood with Mayo Popiah 3.8/5
For seafood lover, there is the Seafood Wasabi Mayo ($4.10). Wrapped in the thin popiah skin are fresh shrimps, season tuna, crab stick, wakame seaweed, coral lettuce and light wasabi mayonnaise. These fusion popiah is actually bigger than your tradition popiah with generous stuffing. Having one is enough to fill you up. .
Traditional Popiah 4.2/5
Besides the popiah, Souperstar also offers a selection of hearty soups and stew with rice and bread. After eating all the popiahs, I was already too stuffed to try the other items. Anyway my main reason is to try the fusion popiah and I have accomplished the mission. Not only is it yummy, it is healthy too. Thumbs up to the new Singapore Wrap.
