Fish Head Steamboat is especially popular in the Teochew culture. As a Teochew, I would say that this place serves food that is just great for a Teochew’s tastebuds. Just one boiling hot pot in the middle of the table, eating while chatting with your family members is one of the greatest feeling ever. The usual ingredients found in a traditional fish head steamboat are the fish, deep fried yam, chinese cabbage, dried seaweed and sun-dried flatfish. Using fresh ingredients, Nan Hwa’s fish head steamboat is savoury and addictive.
You can choose between three kinds of fish: Red Snapper, Pomfret or Grouper. Although the steamboat itself comes with many ingredients, you can still add on more if you’d like. My favourite item in the whole hotpot is the deep fried yam. It was super fragrant which added a nice touch to the refreshing soup. The fish was also very fresh and the portion was pretty generous.
Other than the steamboat, we also ordered some side dishes. First, was the Braised Pig Intestines which was extremely tender. The sauce for the braise was aromatic and the intestine had no hint of foul smell. We ordered Sambal Sweet Potato Leaves that was delicious as well. The oyster omelette wasn’t what we expected. It has the starchy bits in it like those you buy from kopitiams, but nonetheless, the dish was pretty good. Lastly, we tried Claypot Drunken Rice Wine Clam. This dish was definitely a surprise. It had an interesting smell to it, kind of like perfume. Yes, I am not kidding, it smelled like perfume!
So if you love steamboats, fish, or just looking to have a nice meal, try visiting Nan Hwa Chong Fish Head Steamboat!
