Hot Spot Cafe Restaurant is located at Burlington Square, directly opposite Sim Lim Square’s food court. And it is next to LASALLE College of the Arts. There are lots of seats avaliable. But sometimes, this place is packed during lunch time. Just from observing, you can see that most people are eating tom yam fish soup or fish soup.
I ordered the Fried Fish Tom Yam Soup (thick Beehoon). In it, there were fried fish, toufu, tomato, onion,vegetables and a piece of lime. In fact, there were several pieces of fried fish, more than what I expected whereas there was a lack of vegetables. The fish was fresh. It would be good to let it (the fish) stay in the soup a while longer to absorb more of the tom yam soup. The tom yam soup was tasty, sour and yet spicy. Delicious! Would be great to eat this when the weather is cold/cool.
Overall, this is an above average fish soup stall that certainly warrants more visits. The issue I have is that it is not very accessible unless u drive as the nearest MRT stations (Bugis/Little India/Dhoby Ghaut) is a good 15-20 minutes walk away.
