Tang Xiang Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat @ 5 Kallang Food Centre - Popular Fish Head Steamboat By Mediacorp Celebrity Ben Yeo & Chef Cao Yong


Mediacorp celebrity Ben Yeo and Chef Cao Yong have partnered to open Tang Xiang Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat at 5 Kallang Food Centre. The new zichar stall is located in an industrial food canteen selling Signature Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat and an array of zichar dishes. The stall is so popular that the wait can be up to two hours long.

Red Grouper Steamboat 4.5/5


A must-try here is their Signature Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat which comes with two options - Giant Grouper Steamboat ($40/ $60/ $88) and Red Grouper Steamboat ($48/ $68/ $88). Each steamboat comes with fried fish head, round cabbage, yam, seaweed, tofu, tomato and a separate plate of fish slices. The robust broth s refillable too.


Unlike other fish head steamboat places, the concept at Tang Xiang Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat allows diners to add on ingredients for the steamboat, similar to having hotpot concept.

Fried Prawn Roll 4.5/5

Besides the fish head steamboat, the stall woks up an array of delightful zichar dishes too. We had the Fried Prawn Roll ($12/ $18/ $24). It is meaty and plump, with a light crispy coat on its exterior, giving it an extra textural enjoyment.

Royale Chives with Bean Sprout 4/5

For a balanced diet, we had the Royale Chives with Bean Sprout ($12/ $18/ $24). I enjoyed how the contrasting textures of the vegetables complemented each other for a delectable crunch.

Salted Egg Squid 4.5/5

The salted egg sauce for the Salted Egg Squid ($18/ $26/ $36) is legit goodness. It is probably one of the better salted egg squid I have eaten. Both flavour and texture are executed perfectly, with the addition of curry leaves lifting the taste profile.

Signature XO Yam Ring 4.2/5

Unlike the usual yam ring, the Signature XO Yam Ring ($28) here is black, infused with charcoal powder and comes with seafood instead of the usual chicken and vegetable. It is an elevated version of the traditional yam ring and an instagrammable one.

Claypot Spicy Chicken 4/5

Fragrant and tender is the Claypot Spicy Chicken ($15/ $22/ $30). Though the description said it is a spicy dish, I find it otherwise. The spiciness is very mild. I feel it is suitable for kids too.

The zichar stall is very popular, and the wait can be up to 2 hours. Hence, I highly recommend making reservations and pre-ordering your dishes before going down.
