The old stalwart still does it best. That wonderful crunch, the super yummy marinade. And doesn’t it look just beautiful! Even good dabao. Doesn’t come cheap though

Had high hopes as it was one of their signature dishes. However the salted egg sauce didn’t survive the wait of 20 mins before I could eat it. Solidified and was wierd. Probably one dish that must eat immediately and not ideal for dabao or wait

Haven’t eaten this in forever! The famous har cheong gai has literal sound effects - a very loud crunch when you bite in. Can taste the salted fish & crunchy beansprouts in salted egg fried rice. The salted egg pork ribs were boneless and amazingly tender too. Not cheap but such a satisfying dinner!

Many working around the area may recognise this restaurant, due to its quality dishes. I must say, the Sliced Fish Bittergourd Soup (~$8, comes with a free drink) is really good, as you can taste that the soup indeed has natural ingredients, making it really refreshing and addictive. The fish slices were extremely fresh I must say, but they did not give many pieces sadly 😢

Feature :
1. Signature fish head steamboat soup (Batang Sliced Fish), $40.
Its comforting, flavourful and the fish were fresh, and they gave extra soup.
2. Specialty Food Street Tofu, $14.
My son favourite dish, he literally finished this by himself, the gravy very tasty, cooked with egg and dried shrimp.

3. Salted Egg Yolk Sotong, $20
Very tasty, coated with thick salted egg sauce.

4. Deep Fried Nan Lu Pork Belly, $16.
The pork belly tender.

Currently they have promo free island wide delivery daily for orders with a min spend of $50 and also 15% off for pick up orders.

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!
