Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hoon is one of my fav haunts about 20 yrs ago when it was located at the Bouna Vista coffee shop. I loved their San Lao & fish been hoon soup. Even their fried rice, horfun, sang mee were a cut above the rest and most of all, they come with generous thick slices of toman fish fillet.
I visited them occassionally at their Dover venue on my way to SP for evening class, simply because there is a dearth of decent eating place within walking distance in the evening. But every visit has turned out to be disappointing.
The horfun gravy is insipid and and the hor fun is cold. I had a few gathering after class. The prawn paste chicken has more dough then meat, San Lao is really expensive for a small portion.
My ambivalance stems from the fact that I enjoyed about a decade of dining at their old place and I keep hoping to capture those delightful moment at the Dover venue but kept getting disappointed time and again. I wish the gold chain boss will receive an epiphany and start to serve the type of food that earned him his first gold clains.
