Top 11 Best Oxtail Soup in Singapore

There are actually a few different kinds of Oxtail Soup. Perhaps one we’re more familiar with is the Indonesian oxtail soup, or sop buntut. In the Indonesian version, slices of fried or barbecued oxtail is served with vegetables in a rich, clear beef broth. For the Chinese version, a broth with a mixture of vegetables is slow-cooked in medium heat. Then there are the British and even Korean version too. Whatever you prefer, here’s a look at the Best Oxtail Soups in Singapore.

1. Impian Wahyu


Impian Wahyu means Wahyu’s Dream.

Together with his wife Madam Wahyu Ning, Abang Batman (whose real name is Abdul Rahman bin Mahadi) has been in the food business for over 20 years. Regulars might recall their previous location along Jalan Besar, where they were for almost eight years until the business was badly affected by MRT construction works. What started as a dream had turned into a nightmare.

Holding back tears, Abang Batman said it was thanks to food reviewers who helped get the word out that business eventually picked up. He’s now happy to have moved just a stone’s throw away, so his old customers don’t have to travel too far. At this cosy corner of Kelantan Road, he also has four HDB blocks of new customers to cater to.

Almost every sign at Impian Wahyu is emblazoned with whimsical statements that tell their story, like “Arek-arek Suroboyo” which, according to Abang Batman, means “Children of Surabaya”, a reference to where his wife is from and where their three daughters are based, running the bigger Indonesian branch of Impian Wahyu.

Then there’s “Diiringi dengan taburan ayat-ayat cinta”, an Indonesian movie reference that also means “accompanied by a scattering of love verses”. I assumed that main chef Madam Wahyu Ning wants customers to know that she cooks everything on their extensive menu with love.
