Best Black Chicken Herbal Soup: Seng Kee Mee Sua and Best Pork Liver Claypot

The Famous Seng Kee Mee Sua

Best Black Chicken Herbal Soup at Seng Kee – get yourself down to 467 Changi Rd and visit the lovely staff. We did this day with our mate Spencer Campbell. After a few beers chatting about work Spencer suggests a wee walk to grab some grub. Well, it started with; “Do you like liver?” I know right, so nothing to do with Seng Kee Black Chicken. But the liver is there front and centre in the Seng Kee black chicken herbal soup menu, if only I could read Chinese.

Sorry for this Mum, but as you know you did cook yours a little overdone, and that big lump of pig liver looked more akin to an Aero bar because it was all dry and full of holes. Not my favourite thing as a kid, even with some damn nice onion gravy. But this dish at Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup, now this dish was just incredible.

In the vibrant realm of culinary Hawker adventures, we embark on a delightful journey exploring the depths of flavor with the iconic claypot pork liver! Brace yourself for a mouthwatering escapade as we dive into the rich and aromatic world of this classic dish that has been tantalizing taste buds for generations.

Each bite is a celebration of tradition, where the earthy essence of the clay pot meets the boldness of perfectly cooked liver.

And this is why because this is some classy hawker food court food. This is not Seng Kee Black Chicken, I think this is their signature dish. Thinly sliced pork, with thinly sliced pig liver, Spring onions, lettuce, ginger, a truly wicked unctuous gravy and some soy with chilli padi to give it some major punch. Wow, and I mean wow!!! This dish would be worth coming back for the very next day. It is a STUNNER. Move over Seng Kee black chicken herbal soup, this should be your signature dish.

“I’ll have prawns thanks, Dad.”
“OK, Baby Jude.” Funny, he hates prawns now… 2022 onwards.

Don’t want liver? Quite a few choices on offer folks if not. Notice anything here? OK no menus. You walk to The Wall and choose from there. Now one slight issue you may see there on the menu wall. Yep, no English. So you need to ask for the English speaking staff or borrow Spencer’s wife to translate. But as we were there for one dish and one dish only we were groovy and of course, for Jude’s prawns, we resulted to a point and grunt.

My mate Spencer in his element – “You talking to me…”

I don’t know if you can see from the photos but have a look at the tables. You get these little buzzers, more food is one button, a drink is another button – can’t remember what the third button was for. Maybe for ice for your bum after the chilli.

Spencer recommends the Seng Kee Mee Sua Soup

Check out this White Seng Kee Mee Sua Soup which is made with wheat vermicelli. The soup/broth is sweet yet peppery, absolutely delicious!
