With massive green spaces and nature reserves, Upper Bukit Timah is a perfect place to recharge your energy after a long and tiring week at work. However, be prepared, as strenuous activities like hiking or just by walking and appreciating the beauty of faunas and floras can surely make you go hungry.
Check out these five recovery meals at Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre that won’t hurt the bank.
1. Mutton Soup at Chin Hock Mutton Soup
It may not look as aesthetically pleasing as some famous hawker soups in Singapore, but mutton soup or locally known as soup kambing has captured the taste buds of many locals. Made with different meat offcuts from either lamb, sheep, or goat, patiently tenderized in a hearty herbal broth full of herbs and aromatics–this soup is loaded with nutrients that can help you regain your energy and may even help you with limb pain.
You may also enjoy the soup with ribs and meatballs only. Prices range from $4 to $8.

2. Braised Duck at Jie Jie
Duck meat is a very good source of protein. Like fish, it is also packed with healthy acids that are good for the heart. Slowly cooked in its thick and savory sauce, the duck meat is tender and evenly coated with flavors. Comes with some tofu, egg, and peanuts on the side, you’ll meet your daily protein count.
Prices range from $3 to 3.50.

3. Sliced Fish Soup at Leng Kee Fish Soup
Fish is lighter as compared to other protein-rich food, but that doesn’t mean it lacks the nutrients you can get from meat. The best thing? Just like pork and beef, fish has natural umami. A bowl of Sliced Fish Soup is packed with generous fish slices, tomatoes, green veggies, slices of tofu, and other kinds of seafood in a nicely simmered healthy clear broth.
Prices range from $4 to $8.
