Yan Ji Seafood Soup 炎记海鲜汤 – Famous Seafood Soup

Yan Ji Seafood Soup - Top View

The first Yan Ji Seafood Soup in Marsiling Mall started operating in the 1980s. 

The emphasis on fresh seafood and consistent quality paid off during the 30 years of history. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup has since expanded into two more stalls in Broadway Coffeeshop and Far East Plaza. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup has been featured in The Straits Times, and received “Best Food Awards 2009-2014” from The Green Book. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup - Stall Front

Hidden deep in Marsiling, Broadway Coffeeshop is not the most easy to find if you don’t live in the area. You have to take a bus from Marsiling MRT station to reach this coffee shop. 

If you are taking the MRT, the stall at Marsiling Mall is probably more accessible. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup - Menu

There are altogether only 5 options on the menu, so selection should be easy. Most first-timers will probably go for the Crayfish Seafood [S$12/14/16/18], Red Grouper Seafood [S$12/14/16/18] or Seafood Soup [S$6/8/10/12]. 

You can also add on fish maw, pacific clams, venus clams or scallops at S$2 each and abalone or crayfish at S$4 each. Takeaway costs S$0.30 and rice costs S$0.50 per bowl. You can also add thick bee boon for S$0.80. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup - Premium Seafood Soup

I wanted to get a taste of everything, so I ordered the Premium Seafood Soup [S$30] which gives me two halves of a crayfish, 2 prawns, 2 small abalones, 3 pieces of fish maw, pacific clams, venus clams, two huge scallops and two huge meat patties. 

The seafoods are all very fresh but what impressed me the most is the rich and creamy broth. It is not overly salty with the rich sweetness from the seafoods. You can only top up plain soup as each bowl of seafood soup is individually cooked. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup has been franchised and renamed OAR Seafood Soup in Old Airport Road Food Centre and another at Alexandra Village Food Centre. I am curious if these franchises maintains the high quality that Yan Ji Seafood Soup is known for.
