Hualong Fishhead Steamboat 華龍鱼頭爐 @AMK

White beehoon

White beehoon

This is currently the place we go to whenever we have cravings for seafood white beehoon, especially when the queue at Sembawang is really getting far too long.

Located at i Coffee Shop just opposite AMKHub (Blk 347 to be exact), it is fairly easy to get to, and we have always managed to find seats without much hassle.

Hualong Fishhead Steamboat (華龍鱼頭爐) is the zhi char stall, and while we did enjoy the steamboat (which they are famous for), we much preferred the white beehoon! This version is of course, not quite the same as the Sembawang version, however, the $6.50 small version is delicious enough with lots of seafood, like prawns, sotong, and lala, all served on old-school banana leaf!

Sembawang White Beehoon @Sembawang

Lunch spread!

Lunch spread!

After our mini brunch (actually we had wanted to come straight from home, but alas, this place only opens from 11.30am, and we were really getting hungry), we made our way to You Huak Restaurant (友发餐室, better known as Sembawang White Beeboon! We made sure to reach slightly before 11.30am, because we were worried about the crazy crowds, especially when it was showcased in the newspapers a few weeks ago (when they announced another branch at Punggol).

We managed to reach around 11.25am and got the last table! So happy that we did not have to queue 🙂 Seems like they opened much earlier today, as some of the people were almost done with their food. We were just settling down and browsing the menu when, just like magic, at 11.30am sharp, a queue suddenly formed, stretching the entire length of the shop 😮

We settled for White Beehoon ($8 for medium size), Sambal Pedas (臭豆, $7 for small size), Sambal Lala ($8 for small size), and my favourite Sour Plum drink ($2.20), while hubby had mineral water as usual ($1.20).

Food arrived rather quickly, just like the previous few times that we were here. While the beehoon was still delicious, we felt that the rich seafood gravy was too little today, and was not enough to give the beehoon a really good soak. Today’s sambal lala was alright, and I still think the version at Causarina Road is the best! The pedas was delicious as usual 🙂 I just hope that the standards will not keep sliding…

If you are thinking of trying the beehoon here, it would be best to come before 11.30am, or at odd hours like 3pm, to avoid the crazy queues. But if the queue is really too long, there are still many other food options nearby… In fact, the restaurant next door offers its own version of “wet white beehoon”, but this version is definitely not comparable.

Note: There is no GST or service charge.

After so many years of working in this area, I finally discovered Whampoa Market and Food Centre!

There were 3 blocks – Blk 90 caters to the evening crowd, Blk 91 is more for day crowds (only the fish head steamboat plus a couple of drinks stall opened on both evenings that we were there), while Blk 92 is the wet market.
