Giant Grouper Seafood Soup ($14) 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!
Affordable Premium Seafood Soup We ordered premium seafood soup. It’s for 2-3 pax. The soup is thick and delicious. And the portion is generous considering the price! Have to mention there were two giant scallop hidden at the bottom of the soup. And the minced meat is really nicely done!
Yan Ji Seafood Soup in Orchard Road? The portion may be small, but it still packs a luscious flavour. The newly opened outlet of this popular Woodlands brand is at the basement of Far East Plaza, close to where Ya Kun is. Seats are very limited though!

Seafood Soup w/ rice $6.5 After seeing @veronicaphua wax lyrical about the seafood soup here I knew I had to make my way down to try it. The broth proved absolutely stunning. Rich, intense and suffused with umami, the liquid gold fairly swam with fresh, delicate pieces of fish, large succulent prawns and loosely ground clumps of fatty mince pork. I’m ordering the large bowl next time. Taste: 4/5
New Name, Almost The Same Solid Seafood Soup. My favourite seafood soup at stall #01-122 inside Old Airport Road Hawker Centre has undergone a name change. It’s now rebranded as @oarseafoodsoup which I think it rather clever as “OAR” alludes to the sea which is the source of the ingredients, and it also happens to be the acronym for “Old Airport Road”. Because it is basically a takeover of the business by the same guys who have been doing the cooking since day one of the previous brand, I found the taste to be extremely similar. My order today was the $12 Red Snapper Seafood Soup which came with big pieces of the fish (on-bone), the familiar huge, chunky meatballs and fish maw (I asked for the default prawns to be replaced as I didn’t fancy peeling them) in the signature concentrated broth. If you like your soup even sweeter, I was told that you should stick to the crustacean. Oh and another thing I noticed is they give more of that incredible soup now. Although the taste isn’t strictly identical, I think OAR Seafood Soup’s recipe is as close as anyone can possibly get to the original. And frankly, that’s good enough for me to want to return for more.

Crab Steamboat Crab Steamboat ($55) . After facing rejection countless times due to the need to brave the heat eating at a hawker centre, I finally managed to grab a companion to join me at Wen Wen Pork Rib Prawn Noodle to try their Crab Steamboat on a rainy evening. According to the stall, it is best that this steamboat be had after 6pm as that’s when the stock has developed enough flavour after simmering for the entire day. He was right! Most prawn mee stock I’ve had is usually murky from all the pork being cooked. Instead, Wen Wen’s was a clear broth that packed mainly the sweet umami goodness of all the seafood. So for the price, we get pork ribs, pig’s tail, pig intestines, big prawns, clams, and the crab full of roe. With so much seafood simmering over a slow fire during the meal, the prize really is the taste of the soup towards the end of our meal. Do note that you are also allowed to bring your own ingredients to add to the steamboat and I would strongly recommend bring more vegetables as it’ll cost $5/bowl from the stall.
Wen Wen Hotpot ($55~$80) Wen Wen Big Prawn Mee is now back at the newly renovated Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre! All I can is that soup is just as shiok, uncle Richard is just as friendly and the experience just as fun as before (sadly, no more lala). He even has his own add-ons now like veg and fresh pork shabu shabu so you don’t have to bring your own (though you still can).
Large Steamboat ($80) Back to Wen Wen (in Geylang Bahru) ‧⁺◟( ᵒ̴̶̷̥́ ·̫ ᵒ̴̶̷̣̥̀ ) Love the seafood flavors and the super generous ingredients; it came loaded with crab, prawns, pork ribs, intestines (also you can order their prawn noodles FOC), and you can always bring your own ingredients to add! Also uncle is seriously the nicest hawker ever. Only downside is the hawker setting, but this is really worth the sweat.
