Opening their doors this week in the growing culinary scene that is TTDI, Alison Soup House's focal point are recipes inspired by the cooks' mothers. The establishment shines a light on the humble soup and offers a variety of Asian and Western offerings, made without MSG and boiled or stewed for hours until the soup is packed full of flavour.

Also another fairly new contender to the TTDI neighbourgood, Cocott' serves casual French fare in a well, a cocotte, a pot in which food can be both cooked and served. The diverse kitchen team can whip a number of signature French dishes, such as beef bourguignon as pictured above that takes two days to achieve the desired flavours.
