    This renowned joint began as an ordinary stall back in 1965 and since then flavours and fortunes boomed, today they have merged two shop lots along Carnarvon Street, yet it’s still a battle for an empty table. Count yourself lucky if you manage to nab one within 15 minutes. Hands down, it’s definitely worth the wait! Churning out Chinese-style dishes, this spacious and brightly-lid restaurant is a must-go. Their Assam Fish Curry habitually hogs the headlines yet the best-kept secret is their steamed fish. The promfret arrives piping hot, lounging in a teo-chew style sauce and loaded with julienned ginger, chilies, tofus and tomatoes. The secret of such savoury is the simplicity, where the fresh flavours of the fish suffuse throughout the dish.
