A Fishy Hot Pot

Situated at the corner of a coffeeshop between Jalan Sultan and North Bridge Road – directly opposite Textile Centre, is Nan Hua Chong Fish Head Steamboat Corner.

Without a doubt, whenever my family craves for a good dinner of fish head steamboat, this stall is the place for it. Their specialty lies in their 松鱼头, or Big Head Carp Steamboat. A freshwater fish, it is value mainly for its large scale-less head.

Those who are knowledgeable about freshwater fish would be acquainted with its “muddy” taste when cooked, however at this stall, the fish head is skilfully rid of that – leaving you nothing but the delicious chunky fish meat. The soup is also tasty and overflowing with seaweed, vegetables and yam in it.

And if you are still not convinced, or cautious against consuming fish head, there is always the reliable Pomfret to dip into the steamboat. These pomfret slices are very fresh and comes thick and big.

And fear not if you are not a big fan of fish. Besides fish steamboat, they also served other side dishes. The Oyster Omelette was a little disappointing though – the egg was thin and the oyster was overcooked, thus shrunk. However, the Deep Fried Beancurd was simply delightful.

It was crispy on the outside but soft on the inside – a good balance.
