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.

Poor Fish Head Steamboat 鱼头卢 & Crab Beehoon @ New Food Town Seafood on 12Nov2015

crab beehoon

S$25 crab beehoon

went with sis & b-i-l to the new zi char stall at 6th avenue kopitown coffeeshop for dinner this evening on 12.11.2015. the stall occupies the 2 stalls which the roast duck noodles was previously, which has now moved to an inside stall.

i came by the other day & took the roast duck noodles at tao xiang kitchen which was expensive & not great.

we thought of having crab bee hoon & did not want to go far.

crab beehoon

S$25 crab beehoon

we ordered a crab beehoon.

it was only S$25 for maybe 400g crab but it was quite poor actually. the photos gave it too much credit.

S$25 crab beehoon

if the crab beehon at ming kee & at kamjiazhuan is 9 & 8, this one would be like 3.

my own crabless beehoon is much more tasty than this.

& the fish head steamboat was even worse.

S$25 fish head steamboat 鱼头卢

not even 1 point out of 10.

it was angkoli fish (red snapper). but there was not much fish for S$25, and not very fresh fish.

& the soup is (thumbs down), miles off the excellent intense broth we had at whampoa keng recently.

S$25 crab beehoon

i want to support the small new zi char actually, but this was not worth eating, even though it was just S$50.60 for 3pax.

wouldn’t go back for sure. 😦
