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.
