Ka-Soh Restaurant Closing Michelin Bib Gourmand-Winning Flagship Outlet In Outram

Ka-Soh Restaurant Closing Michelin Bib Gourmand-Winning Flagship Outlet In Outram

The pandemic has been a trying time for many in the F&B industry, including Cedric Tang, 37. He and his brother Gareth, 39, are both third-generation co-owners of Cantonese-style fish soup and zi char restaurant Ka-Soh. He tells 8days.sg that Ka-Soh’s flagship outlet in Outram, which has consistently been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand nod since the inaugural 2016 list in Singapore, will be closing for good on June 26. The Bib Gourmand is awarded to eateries that “offer diners very good value for money, with a complete and high-quality menu priced at a maximum of S$45”. It’s not to be confused with Michelin stars, which are awarded to eateries of exceptional standards as determined by Michelin inspectors.

After shutting its 100-seat Outram HQ – established in 2007 within a medical alumni club on the grounds of Singapore General Hospital – Ka-Soh will be left with just one outlet in Greenwood Avenue, which seats 60 (there are also four Ka-Soh outlets with franchisees in Indonesia). This restaurant isn’t the first in their stable to fold during the pandemic. Last May, sister eatery Swee Kee Eating House shut its doors after a 26-year run on Amoy Street, because the crowds in the CBD dried up during the pandemic. 

The restaurant group’s history dates back to the ’30s, when the brothers’ grandfather, Tang Kwong Swee, started selling fish soup at a push cart stall under a different name at the old Great World Amusement Park.
