Seng Kee is probably the most famous steamed fish head in hot sauce merchant in Chinatown Complex, and with very good reasons. Firstly, this titanic fish head is fifteen bucks nett. Secondly, it’s incredibly fresh, and the sauce it’s been steamed in is decently delicious. ⠀

The sauce seems to be soya sauce & fermented bean paste blended together into a watery yet savoury sauce, combined with a generous helping of garlic and just a smattering of chili. The flavour profile is definitely deeply umami, with just a little hint of spice & a little appetising sweetness. The hot sauce ain’t quite so hot, but it’s stunningly sapid. ⠀

Combined with the fresh, firm & flaky fish which is probably batang (Spanish Mackerel), this is a fabulous investment at just $15. While it won’t go to the moon like Doge, the sensational flavours will send you over the moon.
