Teochew Traditional Steamboat Restaurant started from humble beginnings. The Owner who is a teochew is very particular about freshness and quality of his ingredients. In order maintain the freshness of his food, he sources locally and overseas to bring in the best fresh foods available.

 Nestled along Joo Chiat Road, the Teochew Traditional Steamboat Restaurant offers only the freshest meats and seafood cooked in their signature soup stock brewed from shark bone and chock full of vegetables and other goodies, while containing no MSG, making it good enough to drink on its own.

 

Choose from a range of ingredients including US Prime beef as well as in-house handmade wanton, dumplings, meat balls,fish balls and squid balls prepared in-house to the chef's special recipes which contains no flour compared to most establishments. The house specialty, Fish Kway Teow, is also a must try, promising to tingle your taste buds and have you coming back for seconds. Another item would be their superior fish maw which is selected from one of the best grade around many Indonesian islands.

If you still have room left after the steamboat, you can select side dishes from the menu, including the Crispy Fried Pork Knuckles, Egg Plant with Floss, Scallop Mushrooms and many more!

We were around the area and I chanced upon this place on HGW. Decided to give it a try.

We love the gao gao stock, it was thick and flavourful. My youngest daughter ate 2 bowls of rice with the stock... it must be good.

The garoupa slices and the marbled beef we had were also very fresh and nice.

The sambal belachan was to die for, my hubby loved it so much he bought from the owner, a tiny little tub for $3... but he says it is worth it!

IMPORTANT: IT IS AN ALA-CARTE STEAMBOAT.

-7 thin slices of pork belly cost $9
-It state LIVE fresh prawn when serve but all the prawns in the tank are almost dead, frozen prawn was serve instead. some of the prawns was as small as your thumb
-Vegetables too costly. $5 for a handful of golden mushroom. All vegetable dish cost minimum of $5.
Imagine 3 pieces of dry seaweed cost $5. 
-When asked for rice, the lady boss said they have sold all of their rice when the restaurant had no more than 5 table of customers  
-Tomyum soup taste like tomato soup 

Do not be tricked by the ambience of the shop whereby there is lots of photos taken with celebrities after they have patronized. 

Although my spouse and I received a warm welcome by the lady boss, we were shocked and saddened after the dishes we ordered arrive. We felt cheated as the bill came out to be est. $70

 The fish was very good and fresh, and the soup base was very tasty. However, I'm almost absolutely certain that there’s also use of a copious amount of msg and those soup essence things. The meal was also rather expensive especially given the nature of the place (quite run down and basic, with a couple of aunties and uncles as service staff (Read: not fantastic service)).
