curry fish head

S$25 curry fish head

i passed by sanpo foodcourt everytime on the way to phoon huat or joyful palace at clementi central.

i could see the banner advertisement on their fish head steamboat as i drove by. i thought one day i would drop by to try.

so today wife & i decided to go try the zi char stall there on 16.1.2016. ^^

i asked about the fish head steamboat. it’s priced at S$30, S$40 etc. we were not taking that this evening,

but i was thinking at that price, i would rather go to whampoa keng…at least i am certain what i get will be good.

sanlo horfun

S$4.50 sanlo horfun

we ordered a small S$4.50 sanlo horfun. it was good, nice wok hae, a small portion but that was enuf carbs for the 2 of us. 🙂

the fish head had 2 pricing S$23 & S$25. did not really make sense to me. asked the girl & she said S$25 bigger fish head. really???? S$2 difference???

anyway, being kiasu, we ordered the S$25 fish head. it was assam, with quite a bit of coconut milk quite lemak. fish head was fresh & meaty. my wife liked the fish head.

for me it was quite good, but not really comparable to the thai fish head at forture restaurant at old holland road.

one thing they gave a lot of vegetables & also taupok.

it was a good fish head. i didn’t mind it, but maybe didn’t hold any special attractions for me. 🙂

Tak Shiok Fish Head Steamboat @ SICC Bukit Room on 4Dec2015

fish head steamboat

S$36 1/2 fish head steamboat

not been to bukit room for sky knows how many eons?

got a S$20 birthday voucher to use, need to spend S$50 to redeem, and only 2 of us this evening, can’t do that at 19th hole, so decided to go bukit room on 4.12.2015.

the 1/2 red garoupa head steamboat is a promotional item at S$36, so we ordered that.

asparagus

S$12 asparagus

also ordered the aspagaragus S$12.

the fish head steamboat?

well, how to say? can’t say fish head steamboat was no good, but it’s 1/2 fish head in a steamboat rather than fish head steamboat la! haha! 🙂

fish head

pre-fried fish head

more like a decent salted veg tofu soup at an ordinary coffeeshop zi char & added some fishhead…

miles from the real thing like whampoa keng intense broth standard..

S$36 1/2 fish head steamboat

dinner was just over S$50, so after $20 voucher, about S$31 maybe…

after dinner, we tapao cha kuay teow from 19th hole..basically tak shiok… if you know what i mean. so the S$30 is much better spent at the 19th hole. 🙂

this restaurant is really like old fashion zi char stall higher price, surprise to see quite a few tables occupied, so the restaurant does have some regulars i guess.

Expensive Not Great Duck Noodles @ Tao Xiang Kitchen 6th Avenue on 4Nov2015

S$7 roast duck noodles

S$7 roast duck noodles

i dropped by 6th avenue around 4pm to take a late lunch today on 4.11.2015.

was deciding whether to have the nice roast chicken rice which i like or to try the duck noodles.

S$7 roast duck noodles

S$7 roast duck noodles

this tao xiang kitchen had been around for a while & previously occupied the front stall but now have taken up the stall to the back of the coffeeshop.

it is supposedly helmed by a hong kong chef. i used to take the roast duck a few times many years back but have always found the stallholder & servers very abrasive & unfriendly, basically the nazi chef type. at the time, i thought the roast duck was pretty good & flavourful.

so today i decided to try the roast duck again, since i have not done for so long.

the stall holder was not very friendly but still tolerable today. but it’s the food that counted.

however i found it quite poor today. the drumsticks noodles was S$7. at S$5.50 i would find it very mediocre. at S$7 i think it was quite below par.

there was roast & duck flavours but it was just very average for me.

i think by comparison the roast duck at joyful palace 怡乐坊@ food loft clementi was just so much better! and still cheaper.

i tossed the noodles. noodles was loose & qq. chilli was good. both the noodles with the sauce & the chilli were slight salty.

overall, it was a expensive & forgettable S$7 roast duck drumstick noodles. don’t think i will try this stall again.

there is though a new zi char stall there that occupies the prvious tao xiang front stall location straddling to stall units that served fish head steamboat & crab beehoon (both the thick beehoon soup & the thin wet fried beehoon styles). i would want to try that.
