Han Kee Fish Soup – Low-Profile Homey Fish Soup Stall in Bedok
‘Han Kee' may be well-known in the CBD — it's the famous fish soup stall at Amoy Street Food Centre.However,this Han Kee Fish Soup stall in Bedok is operated by a different owner.Cheerful Chan Lam Meng first started selling fish soup in Joo Chiat in 1979,before relocating to Blk 216 Bedok Food Centre and Market 25 years ago.
Looking rather clear with a layer of oil on the surface,Han Kee's fish soup ($4) was not as bland as it looked since the batang (Spanish Mackeral) fish slices were quite fresh and sweet.The smooth tofu and vegetables went really well with the rice with braised sauce (additional $0.50).What a homey bowl of fish soup that's perfect for a rainy day!
I preferHougang Lee Chen Cooked Food‘s fish soup because it has a more flavourful soup that comes with fragrant fried garlic and smoother fish slices that are marinated with a type of special powder.Both stalls are located in the same hawker centre,so be sure to try both to find out which stall you prefer.
Tran Thi Anh Thu (Chan's wife) decided to help Chan out 20 years ago,so now both of them take turns to be in-charge of the cooking.A question which has been bugging me since my first fish soup hunt is,"why do some fish soup stalls offer options of braised meat and beancurd-related ingredients?"I asked Chan but he just said: "It's just like that."Han Kee Fish Soup is not the first stall to offer such a combination,and I'm more than glad that there is such a combination because white rice with braised sauce and sides will never go wrong.
