Shop front
Boss cooks the food himself inside
They have a variety of braised items too!

Braised Pork Leg! Yums!
I ordered fish slice with fried bones. If not the soup would be clearer. But still yummy!

Intro:
This is another hawker operating for prolly more than 20 years already. They used to be from the corner coffeeshop at the end of Lor 27 Geylang diagonally opposite Ho Kee Pau. I remember driving mum there to have our favourite fish soup and braised pork leg on weekends and usually the place will be packed with regulars. Moving to this current location may be a lot cleaner and neater, but rental is very high as I was told. Nevertheless I’m glad I found them through my staff Ray, and would like to introduce to you guys one of my top ranking fish soup places. 

Taste:

They are those rice-with-soup porridge specialist. The soup looks clear and deceiving but their fresh sliced fish soup is so damn good, you’ll be hit by the yummy fish flavours once the soup touches your tongue! Check out their braised pork leg or braised duck also! Very nice with steam white rice!

Price:

From $4.

海鲜之家 (Seafood House) – Eunos, Singapore

Advertisements

Alright I’m attempting to write my blogs on the bus again. Can only do it when the bus is not so crowded or else very hard to use 2 thumbs.

海鲜之家 or Seafood House in direct translation, is a recent stall at Eunos Hawker Centre which I’ve discovered. Reason is because they opened till 10pm, a time which I can meet after closing the cafe. Stall is owner by a PRC lady who have been living here for the past decade and her hubby is a Singaporean. She goes to buy her fish daily from the market and occasional you may get some premium fish… Just like some single origin coffee beans haha. Heard it’s long queue during peak hours which I doubt I’ll get to see. Anyways check out the pics below:

This was the premium fish order which was red snapper. Paid $8 for this bowl.

 

See the red snapper fillets. no regrets ordering this!

 

 

This was another time when i ordered the regular mackerel fish for $3.50 plus rice $0.50. Fish was very fresh and reasonably portioned.

 

This was the mixed seafood order whichis $5.00 per bowl. loads of seafood!

They use the 扁鱼 to flavour the soup

Northern Thai Food

Was in training today at Foo Chow Building and finished around lunch time. So I decided to pack my lunch back to office as I needed to work on my emails.

Saw Anne packing her lunch as well at this Northern Thai stall located at the coffeeshop round the bend of Kitchener Road and Tyrwitt Road. Basically, the whole coffee shop patrons are eating their food. So I reckon they should be good.

Looking at the menu on the wall, the prices are really cheap. Egg omelette $3.00, Pineapple Rice per bowl $1.50, Stewed Pork Leg $3.00, etc… in essence, everything is cheap and portioning is meant for personal consumption.

So I ordered Tom Yum Soup with fried fish slices and a portion of white rice and pineapple rice. Here are the pics:

The soup is a little milky and separated from the fish so that the fish will not get too soggy

Rice is packed in burger boxes so that it's easier to eat
Pineapple Fried Rice - $1.50 per bowl

Rating: 5/5

Taste: The Tom Yum Soup is extremely good. Probably the best I had so far in Singapore. Very nice and thick soup and you can feel a lot of spices were used to make it so good. The fish slices are all well seasoned before deep frying, hence no smell. Pineapple rice is lovely.

Portion: A lot of fish in the soup and the rice portioning are ok for the price.

Price: $4.00 for Tom Yum Soup (From $3-$5) and $1.50 for Pineapple Rice.

RTE: Definitely… Will try the dishes the next time!
