Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy: Lobster Hokkien Mee!
I first wrote about Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy in 2014 and since then we have been back there for our family meals quite a few times. The food has always been good and prices reasonable and we like that it is located at the bottom of a secluded block of flats in Chai Chee. They have just relocated and even though they are in the heart of Geylang, their new place still has that "ulu" (secluded) feel and best of all, there's free parking on the premises!
Our makan new year got off to a great start with lunch at Whampoa Keng's new flagship restaurant at Killiney road. I wrote about them in 2011 at their place in Balestier. Since then, I have been a regular there and at their other branch at Rangoon road.
Hai Chang Fish Head Steamboat: Gem of Tampines Round Market at night!
We were quite pleasantly surprised by the sambal kangkong which had a wonderful smokey aroma and a great prawny umami. The fact that they fry their own sambal came as no surprise. But the real skill comes from the deft hands of their Singapore born Cze Char chef who managed to capture the smokiness of the wok fire! This is the best Sambal Kangkong I have had for a long time!

Whampoa Fish Head Steamboat: Why women do all the work while men sit and enjoy life?
Fish Head Steamboat Let’s face it. It is a man’s world. Ladies, please don’t get me wrong, I am just stating this as an observation, not promulgating it as a value.

Nam Wah Chong (Ah Chew) Fishhead Steamboat Corner: Serving Steamboat Since 1927!
Pomfret Steamboat In my last post on Fish Head Steamboat, I alluded to the fact that Nam Wah Chong is probably the earliest Fishhead Steamboat that is still in operation. The boss here tells me that it was his paternal grandfather who started selling Fish Head Steamboat way back in 1927 in merchant road. I […]

The Whampoa Keng Makan Session will go down in ieatishootipost history as one of the most fun makan session of all time. The best part is that it wasn’t even planned! All I requested of Sharon was that she come up to sing one or two songs for us but it ended up like we […]
