Croutons Soup Bar (Take 2)

Well, I am back at Croutons Soup Bar. Kelvin, the owner of the soup bar, had read my recent posting about the soups I had at his place and kindly posted a comment on my blog. Most especially he wanted to comment on my comments of the Boston Clam Chowder (Croutons Soup Bar).

He found my comments on the chowder constructive and invited to me to drop by and sample the revised clam chowder. Honestly, I was stoked that Kelvin had found my post and responded to my comments. It is great that he was not dismissive of my blog and felt compelled to provide me some feedback.
Kelvin - the proprietor
I introduced myself to Kelvin, who showed me the revised Boston Clam Chowder. The colour of the soup is much lighter than before and a few things have been tweaked. Firstly, the carrots are now added to the soup towards the end of the process and not in the beginning (as it used to be and caused a lot of colour bleed). The butter used has been changed. I was given a sample taste and I must say it did taste very nice, I even managed to get a nice piece of clam which was lovely! So, thank you Kelvin, a much, much nicer clam chowder!!!!

While I was there, I thought I should try out another soup. It was a perfect day for a bowl of hot soup. It was grey, wet, and windy, very windy!!! So this time I ordered the Indonesian chicken soup, better known as Soto Ayam. It was delicious and having the chilli jam tossed into the soup gave it the right amount of kick, which I so enjoyed!

So far, this one is my favourite.

Thanks Kelvin. It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to hearing news of you opening your second outlet sometime in the near future.
