Nam Wah Chong (Ah Chew) Fishhead Steamboat Corner: Serving Steamboat Since 1927!: Pomfret Steamboat In my last

Nam Wah Chong (Ah Chew) Fishhead Steamboat Corner: Serving Steamboat Since 1927!: Pomfret Steamboat In my last

The fish soup here is your classic Teochew fishsoup without the addition of milk like what they do at Whampoa Keng. So the sweetness comes from the fresh fish which they have been sourcing from the same supplier for the last 30 years. I was told that the supplier himself is a third gen owner as well! The umami kick comes from some serious Ti Poh (fried Sole fish) which made the soup wonderfully savoury. Overall the soup is very cheng and tastes very much like an upgraded version of the fish soup that doesn't get served in a steamboat. Rockett girl gives it her two thumbs up. I prefer the Whampoa Keng version which might not be the classic recipe but the milk gives it some body. In the end, I guess it all boils down (pun intended) to individual preference.
