Usually my mom is very into sharing food so she can share the calories but this is one dish that she absolutely refuses to share and insists I get my own. Also, according to her, this is the best food recommendation I’ve ever given to her.

Yan Ji’s Seafood Soup is made from chicken stock boiled with scallops which ends up as an incredibly thick and rich broth. It’s savoury and bursting with umami flavour that you definitely can’t help yourself from slurping everything up. The basic soup comes with dory fish, but if you’re feeling slightly more fancy, you can opt for the giant grouper slices (pictured here). I felt that the giant grouper slices were a little on the fishy side, but the flesh was still pretty bouncy and tender anyway. I might just go for the cheaper dory fish next time I visit. There are other deluxe options that include abalone or crayfish as well. Apart from fish slices, the soup comes with prawns and meatballs. The real showstealer here are the meatballs - they’re packed full of flavour (perhaps with some salted fish) with a great soft and chewy texture. I could eat these with the seafood soup without any other ingredients and be just as satisfied!
