Lao Jiang Superior Soup (老江一品汤) @ Jcube - Known For their Superior Soup And Dry Mee Sua, Opens 5th Outlet


Founded in 2011, Lao Jiang Superior Soup (老江一品汤) has recently opened its 5th Outlet at JCube. Their traditional soup broth is boiled for more than 4 hours using locally sourced ingredients.

Doubled Boiled Chicken Essence Soup 4.2/5

One of the must-have here is the Doubled Boiled Chicken Essence Soup ($14). I was surprised to be given an additional sachet of essence to be poured into my soup upon served. The soup was flavourful with a slightly gelatinous texture, and the chicken thigh was pleasingly tender.

Superior Soup Noodle 3.8/5

Their regulars over the years head down for their Superior Soup Noodle ($9.50). Akin to a seafood soup, it comes with sliced fish, prawns, fish maw, fish ball and more. There's a variety of noodles to choose from, or you can also choose to simply have it with rice. With all other flavours imparted from the various ingredients, the soup was savoury sweet. And not known to many, you can actually request for a refill of the soup broth for your noodles! However, for the ingredients per se, I feel the quality of them can be improved.

Homemade Vinegar Pork 3.8/5

The same goes for Homemade Vinegar Pork with Rice ($9.50). Served with both trotter and slices of pork belly, the gravy itself hit the right spot- sweet and piquant. But for the meat portion, there were some really tender parts and some really tough parts, which to me is a real pity.

Dry Mee Sua 3.5/5

Another of their signature noodle dish is the Dry Mee Sua ($12). Red yeast noodle is used in place of the regular mee sua. The toppings for the mee sua include minced meat with black fungus and thin slices of crispy pork belly. The latter was quite moreish, and it didn't leave a greasy feel even though it was deep-fried. As for the minced meat topping, I can imagine it flavouring more hardy noodles like a typical Bak Chor Mee, but the delicate mee sua fell flat under it.


In conjunction with their opening, some promotions are going on, including between 1st – 31st Oct, purchase 1 Fried Spice Pork Belly or 1 Prawn Paste Chicken Wing at $5 with every order of soup. $5 local delights are limited to the first 20 orders of soup per day for Oct 2020. Other terms and conditions apply, please check with the restaurant.
