It has been a while since I have gone back to Smith Street Food Centre. This time I was actually there to check out Kent Thong Turtle Soup, but decided to dropped by Mr Fish at the same food centre after reading raving reviews of their Cantonese style fish soup.
Fish Head Bee Hoon 4.2/5
I am sure you have eaten at many fish soup stalls. The first thing they do during ordering they will always asked you whether you want to add milk to your soup. At Mr Fish, a clear sign at the front of their stall states "No Milk Added!" in red. Why so?
The reason for the raving reviews is because of the traditional way the stall prepares the fish soup. The stock undergone long hours of boiling to get that creamy and silky texture. Unlike many other stalls that add milk to achieve it. The portion of the Fish Head Bee Hoon ($5) is also very generous. I like the addition of cabbage for a refreshing touch on top of the richness of the soup.
Braised Bitter Gourd and Sliced Fish 3.8/5
Besides the fish head bee hoon, we also ordered a plate of Braised Bitter Gourd and Sliced Fish ($8) to try. Cooked in a black bean sauce, this is a comforting, home cooked food. If the black bean sauce could carry more depth, then this will be excellent.
Be prepared to wait at Mr Fish as they will come your order dish by dish. We waited for almost half an hour to our two orders. The good thing is you need not queue, they will serve the food to your table.
