Fish Head Steamboat 4.5/5
My all time favourite fish steamboat place is at Nam Hwa Chong (Ah Chew) Fish Head Steamboat Corner (亚秋南华昌鱼头炉) at the corner of Jalan Sultan and North Bridge Road. This is probably the oldest restaurant in Singapore since 1927. It is said by many that they are the creator of the Teochew Fish Head Steamboat. Now run by the 3rd generation, the restaurant still continues to use charcoal for their traditional Teochew Fish Head Steamboat that comes with slurp worthy rich and sweet tastes. For the fish, grouper and promfret are more popular with the patrons.
Oyster Omelette 3/5
Beside Fish Head Steamboat, the restaurant also serves some delectable Zi Char dishes. The Oyster Omelette was rather pedestrian. The oysters were also rather small.
Prawn Paste Chicken Wings 3/5
The Prawn Paste Chicken Wings were deep fried to a nice golden brown. However it was lacking the pungent prawn paste taste. This is the milder version of the prawn paste chicken wings which suit those who dislike the acquire prawn paste taste.
Stir Fried Sambal Tapiocal Leaves 4/5
The Stir Fried Sambal Tapiocal Leaves was pretty good. It was actually not too spicy but fragrant enough, not overcooked with a nice crunchiness to it.
Prawn Roll 4/5
I like the Prawn Roll too. They were huge and packed with flavourful filling with occasional crunchy bites of water chestnuts.
Thank you Karen, Maureen and Kai for the birthday dinner treat.
