Nam Hwa Chong Fish-head Steamboat Corner is one of the fish-head steamboat stall with rich history, they have been in the business for more than 90 years according to their website. This shop is located at the conservation shophouse along North Bridge Road.
As with all other famous stalls in Singapore, they got other “replicas” around town. The closest in terms of location being another stall named Nan Hua Chang Seafood Restaurant right across the road in Crawford Lane.
Not sure what’s the history behind these same-same but different stalls. But for me, I have heard from more than 1 source that this one in the shophouse is the original one. Not my first visit here, but haven’t get to write a post about them till now.
Had their Grouper Steamboat, other options include Pomfret/Red Snapper/Song Fish. Fresh meat (which is expected), savoury soup filled with small rectangular pieces of yam and strong umami of the fried flat fish. I thought the soup was slightly overly savoury when we were drinking the soup at the bottom of the steamboat.
Ordered side dish of prawn paste chicken which was pretty ok though there are many others that beat their version.
Compared to the other fish head steamboat stalls that I frequent, this shop has one of the most comfortable dining environment. Spacious and able to accommodate large groups.
