They are good with what they are. Fishhead steamboat

Ordered $55.00red garoupa steamboat for 3-4pax. as always, the fish is fresh like from the ocean : )

Ordered some 'ta orh' to go with it

However, I ain't sure about other dishes. I would have gone elsewhere for other dishes. Steamboat is their forte!! And no complain.  

Soup is salty though...

Satisfying fish head steamboat

For more details and photos, please visit here: http://www.ivyleh.com/2012/10/what-sunday.html Didn't realize the poor ratings here in HGW previously when my sec sch friends and I decided to head over for some fish head steamboat and we decided on Whampoa Keng. I guess many of us agreed that the fragrant soup base was addictive and most importantly, the freshness of fish meat was there. It was really satisfying and all of us love it so much we were constantly clearing the soup!  Prices were slightly higher here for all the dishes as compared to elsewhere but definitely still worth the trip and suitable for large gatherings especially families. Though zhi char dishes we had were average but it was a hearty meal with the highlight of the dinner was good.

Give it a miss

Thought this is quite a promising restaurant from the outlook. But it is not.

They have many dishes on their menu. But they are famous for their teochew fishhead steamboat, or so their sign said. We ordered a set dinner for two. It comes with the steamboat with for two (we chose groupa), one extra dish (we chose their signature "street tofu") and dessert for two.

The steamboat cannot make it. For a steamboat restaurant like this, it is definitely not passable. More hawker fair. Soup isn't of high quality. Put lot of milk inside. So a let down. Doesn't have much fish inside as well.

Tofu dish really nothing to shout about. Simple. Isn't very tasty.

Dessert is simple. Either mango pudding or the medicinal black jelly ("guai lang gou"). I thought the black jelly is ok. But yet my wife did not like it. I always think she is more of a foodie. She seems to taste better. So she must be right, haha.

For service I do see the proprietor there, so it is good. But the staff they hire some are not good. There is a lady from China taking the order for us. She won't quite respond to your questions as she is simply uninterested. I find such workers surprising. They should have done a more honest job. All businesses should observe their service staff and then weed them off or adjust them to another position if their character isn't suitable for serving customers.

For the money you pay, you really don't get much to eat. And it is not well cooked. So it make you wonder what you are paying for. Sure can give this place a miss.

Fish steamboat a bit ex

This restaurant style zi char is supposedly famous for the fish head steamboat. 4 of us came to try and I opted for the pomfret steamboat instead of garoupa as suggested by one of my family members. Since the steamboat was a medium (2-4 people), we only ordered another dish ngoh hiang.

The pomfret is good, but too little. The deep-fried yam was soggy and not tasty at all. The vegetables are also not the chinese type of cabbage (can't remember which they served) so it does not add to the flavour of the soup. The soup's just ok.

The pomfret costs $40, which is rather poor value for money, considering the potions are not generous and the yam didn't deliver.

Fish Head Steamboat

Tastiest fish head steamboat in Singapore. A little hard to find but you'll remember the place the moment you find it and especially once you've given this a try. Main highlight is of course the fish head steamboat where you can pick your type of fish but my favorite has always been the Red Snapper so far. The soup is magnificently fragrant and sumptuous and you just won't get enough of it. There are lots of varieties of side dishes and you can give the famous toufu dish a try along with the cereal prawns and prawn-paste fried chicken. Also worth noting is the large number of celebrity pictures they have decked on the walls. Even Ronaldinho has tried it!
