Xin Yuan Ji, located on Tan Quee Lan Street, is a famous fish soup option in Bugis, with waiting times stretching over 30 minutes during peak hours. The Bugis outlet opens till 11pm daily, so keep this on your late dinner rotation. They offer charcoal fish head steamboat, but what you must come for is the ubiquitous bowls of fish soup that you are likely to see on every table. It's so good, you won't want to share. Of the three versions available — sliced fish, fried fish, and fish head, Burpple Tastemaker Justin Teo's personal favourite is the Fried Fish Soup ($5.80). He explains that the fish chunks are thick, fresh and complements the sweet soup stock well. For maximum satisfaction, opt for milk in your soup and throw in some freshly cut red chillies.
Avg Price: $10 per person
