Xin Yuan Ji 新源记 @ Bugis

Tan Quee Lan Street has a handful of steamboat places; one of them being Xin Yuan Ji 新源记 which is one of the better choices. Great choice for a meal especially if you are around Bugis area and tired of always dining in shopping malls. 

Bustling busy on a public holiday evening - you might have to queue for sometime for a table but not for too long as the servers are quite efficient in allocating seats.

Their signature dish is their Fish Head Steamboats. Price range is about $30 for red snapper fish head (small), $45 for red snapper fish head (medium), $60 for red snapper fish head (large).

Fish Head Steamboat - $63
The steamboat soup base is very rich and savoury, tasted like it has been simmered with fresh fish and seafood. Top-up is always available upon request. The soup base itself is flavourful enough to complement with white rice. The fish slices are also tender and thick - very enjoyable!

Hotplate Tofu - $8.80
Average, the wokhei fragrance is rather overpowering. The ingredients inside this dish are quite generous but I still think it's slightly overpriced.

Onion Scrambled Egg - $8.80
Another overpriced dish. I find that the scrambled egg could be more salty and flavourful.

Sambal Kang Kong - $8.80
This dish was surprisingly better than the tofu and the scrambled egg. It is quite spicy but really delicious. The wokhei fragrance is light. Recommended.
