Amoy Street is one of my favourite places to pick up food or eat dinner – there’s the choice between Thai, Japanese, French rotisserie chicken and a bakery/patisserie that also does salads. Recently, in June, another new shop opened – it’s called Tallore, which fittingly translates to ‘soup bowl’ in Flemish.
So I’m sure you can guess what the shops is serving? Fresh soup, different tastes – to eat in or take away. The soups are made in-house with fresh ingredients, and change every day, so make sure to check their Facebook page for daily updates.
The soup comes in three sizes — regular (HK$38), large (HK$48) and XL (HK$58) — which include one free topping of shredded cheese or croutons. One the evening I went, after reading lots of positive reviews (SCMP, SassyHongKong and Openrice), I had the choice between pumpkin, green peas and mint, tomato and beetroot.
I opted for beetroot – one of my favourite vegetables, but I’m always too lazy to prepare and cook it. I ordered a regular option with some croutons and bread, to take it home. It was still piping hot when I arrived home and it tasted very beetrooty – but I had to add a little more pepper for my own taste.
Still, a very good and healthy dinner option, considering the cooks don’t use MSG and use fresh ingredients! I’ll make sure to come back for another taste test soon – pumpkin is another flavour I really like.
