Yet Con dishes out no-fuss, straight to the point good Hainanese chicken rice ($20+ for three people), with Hainanese steamboat ($20+) (chicken broth and a variety of meats). Good chilli, good garlic ginger mix! Not the most affordable but I’ll bring my tourist friends here for a dose of local tastes!

(Clockwise from top left) Hainanese pork chop, white chicken, chap chye. The chicken was surprisingly mediocre.

It will be not bad of a fix if you just want a simple and affordable meal with your friends. The chicken rice was average. It is nothing special and neither is it bad. Though if only they could make the chicken a little more tender, that would be great.

The additional steamboat set ($20) we ordered was good; the seafood was fresh, the beef was tender but they could have been more generous with the quantity given.

The total bill sum up to be $52 for 4 people, thats pretty affordable but don't expect too much of a service there. You will have to ask for a steamboat set or they will just serve you chicken rice.


In the same street as Saveur and Manzoku is Yet Con 逸群. Their steamboats are kinda different — only one type of soup, and you choose to order beef or seafood platters ($10/plate), and add on veggies. Get the chicken (gizzards and all 🙂) and chicken rice too, and it'll be a super comforting meal.


Epitome of old-school, from the furniture and floor tiles, to the aged uncle expertly hacking down silky-skinned chickens on his thick wooden chopping board. Places like this shouldn't be allowed to disappear.


Operating since 1940, Yet Con has truly stood the test of time and can really proclaim that they have been there, done that. If you have not tried Hainanese chicken rice steamboat, you are clearly missing out. Word of advise, better try it fast before the staff decides to call it a day. This is truly one of Singapore's heritages and heirlooms that unfortunately will not be passed down to future generations. We are lucky to be able to savour it during our lifetime so it's best we cherish the moments now before it's all gone.

Straightforward order without any novelties - just inform the staff you would like to have the steamboat ($10 per pax) and amount of steamed chicken ($5/$10). Do not forget about the chicken rice ($1 a bowl) to have the most authentic chicken rice steamboat experience.

On a side note, I will be boarding my flight soon to Shanghai for a short trip, so do keep a look out for my travel photos soon!
