This heritage stand is located in East Market and Geylang Food Center. It has been open since 1958 and is run by an elderly couple. Due to their age and the fact that they are all fresh, a little patience is required. Expect to wait up to 45 minutes for your order to arrive, but know it’s worth it!

There are four courses on the menu, with prices starting at $3. $5, $8, $10and $15 options are also available. The most popular item is their Sliced ​​fish soup, which you can also enjoy as a porridge. Thick slices of fresh horse mackerel are served in a fish broth boiled for hours with pickled vegetables, ginger and greens – light, sweet and far from stingy in flavor.

If the fish head is your favorite cut, it is also available. Alternatively, they also have a fish roe option, which comes with a thicker white broth.

They also have a selection of braised duck offerings, which you can have as a side dish or with porridge. The braised zhup is both savory and herbal, making it a surprisingly good accompaniment to the light flavors of their fish soup and a bowl of white rice ($0.30).

You have the choice between meat or wing. Alternatively, duck entrails are also available from $0.70 a piece, with options such as liver and stomach. You can also get braised duck tongue every Wednesday.
