Cantonese Soup Kitchen's Healthy Soup Selection

A “Soup Kitchen” is usually identified to charitable activity that provides food for the homeless and those who are hungry during wintertime; since then, the term has been used everywhere to mean a feeding program for the poor or the malnourished.

This restaurant is far from being a feeding program, but nonetheless, it provides a variety of good food and nourishing soup and tea selections.


More than its food which you, more or less, can find in other Chinese restaurants (some of which you may find in pictures here below), I would like to highlight its selection of “Chinese Herbal Soups.” True to its name, “Cantonese Soup Kitchen,” this restaurant offers a wide variety of traditional soups which have medicinal properties good for one’s health.


The “Chinese Herbal Soup Menu is a most natural dietary way to good health. Adding Chinese herbs to soups is a long tradition and is a distinctive feature of Cantonese cuisine. Chinese herbs have very well known curative functions for the human body. And one of the most common way to use Chinese herbs is to brew them together with meats over slow fire for 2 to 3 hours, releasing all the essences and nutrients of the ingredients into the soup – which the body can absorb and assimilate quickly without having to digest and breakdown the meats and herbs.”

This is the most ideal and natural way to obtain loads of nutrients minus the calories.


Sibot w/ duck soup (Php 195) Sibot duck is one of the oldest and most popular Chinese herbal Soup recipes. This soup is famous for restoring energy and strengthening of the immune system, and is very good for men and women of all ages.


Black Chicken w/ 3 kinds of Ginseng soup (Php 220) This herbal soup is most beneficial to restore chi or energy. It is good for lungs, and invigorates blood to counter fatigue and stress, and effectively strengthens liver functions.
