New Eatery By Popular Nan Hwa Chong Fish Head Steamboat Corner Offers Cheaper Charcoal Fish Hotpot
Nan Hwa Chong Fish Head Steamboat Corner claims to be the oldest fish head steamboat restaurant in Singapore, with its fourth-generation restaurateur Jessie Tan, 41, telling 8days.sg that it is "a brand established by my great-granduncle in 1927." The 240-seater eatery occupies three shophouse units along North Bridge Road, where it dishes out the communal Teochew dish in a pot heated with smouldering charcoal alongside zi char fare.
But good news for Easties: there is now a more convenient place to get your fix of fish head steamboat from the storied brand. Jessie recently opened a spin-off eatery in a Kaki Bukit industrial estate called Nan Hua Chang Traditional Fish Head Steamboat (notice the slightly different spelling).
Open since October 1, it comfortably seats 350 in a fully air-conditioned space, whereas the North Bridge Road restaurant is only partially air-conditioned with around a quarter of its seats alfresco.
