From the Burpple community

The signature steamboat here comes with 3 types of fish options (in order of price from lowest): bardan fish, red garoupa, bucket pomfret in 4 different sizes. We got the largest size for the red garoupa (for 8pax+) at $75!

The broth from the soup is rich, flavorful and well balanced. Apart from the thick slices of fish, there are yam chunks, seaweed, cabbage along with 30 other herbs and ingredients that are said to go inside! It is said that the use of charcoal elevates the flavor by adding that robust smokiness.

The menu here is rather extensive for a comprehensive dining experience. We ordered several other dishes.

Fu Rong omelette [L-$16]

Deep friend prawn rolls [S-$14]

Specialty Food Street Tofu [L-$26]
This dish is prepared by steaming the blend of mashed silken tofu with egg mixture before steaming then topping it with the signature seafood sauce.

San lor horfun [L-$22]
Wok hei check box checked! Generous amount of fish. Just didn’t like the slightly undercooked beansprouts.

Mushroom with broccoli [L-$30]
You can’t really go wrong with this!

Marmite pork ribs [L-$27]
The kind that is diced into smaller chunks. Great sauce makes up for the fact that it’s not boneless.

Crispy yam basket with chicken [$24]
Slightly on the dry side for the yam ring, comes with a generous amount of shredded chicken!

Very generous amount of cereal on the deep fried prawns. Crispy shell.

Very very crunchy and crispy fish strips. The pork meat is boneless actually.
