Reviews

From the Burpple community

Run by a husband-and-wife duo since before 2010, it's said that they loved drinking, and thus decided to add XO (extra old) brandy into their dishes.
.
The stall sells a range of zi char dishes, but most come for their fish soup... though be prepared for their gruff, no nonsense, functional service (and don't be undecided).
.
The broth is rich and pearl opaque, with a depth of sweet savoury salty peppery spice boozy flavour, the undercurrent of XO brandy and Shaoxing rice wine being distinct. Pairs well with the long silky smooth rice vermicelli noodles with mild grainy sweet notes.
.
The crisp cabbage lends vegetal sweet flavour, while the large boneless fillets of toman / snakehead fish are chunky yet tender with sweet savoury peppery spice flavour. Shiok.

Besides the XO fish head bee hoon, there are 2 must-try dishes — prawn paste chicken [a.k.a. har cheong gai] and prawn roll [a.k.a. hae cho] which we are head over heels in love with. ❤️

Yay! Sweater weather is back with temperature dipping to between 21 deg C and 22 deg C.

I can finally don my woolly 🧶 sweater again!

At the same moment, I am craving badly for a bowl of sliced fish bee hoon.

We decided to head to this zi char place [previously located at Holland Drive] that I remember fondly back in my younger days where my folks used to bring me to — for their flavoursome XO fish meat bee hoon.

❤️ their rich, milky fish broth with a dash of brandy and copious amounts of fish chunks and wong bok [a.k.a. Chinese cabbage] in it.

It feels absolutely wholesome and nourishing! 😋

Creamy fish soup with rice vermicelli, fish chunks and cabbage. The first time I tried this was more 20 years ago when they are still located at Holland, standard is quite inconsistent over the past years, but still one of the better one in this area.

The soup base was tasty and can really taste the XO. Worth the trip for the soup. The fish could be fresher. The shop owner could have had less of an attitude as well.

Went to this zi char stall upon hearing my friend's recommendation and I was quite pleasantly surprised! The XO Fish Meat Bee Hoon ($15 for 3 pax size) came in a pretty substantial portion and the XO flavour is definitely strong in this one! Although it musked most of the natural sweetness of the fish soup, the fish meat was fresh. I was very impressed by the beancurd we ordered as well, as it has this bold umami coming from the dried fish used to cook the sauce. Absolutely fantastic.

The San Lou Hor Fun ($15 for 3 pax size) definitely has the wok hei, but if not nothing too special. The Har Jeong Gai on the other hand is brilliant, as it wasn't too salty and was very nicely crispy and tender. Definitely a must order!
