Cantonese Double-boiled Soup . Steamed Fish : good value for money

We were there on a Sunday for a late lunch. I wanted to order the Preserved Vegetable Braised Pork Steamed Rice ($3.30) but it was sold out. I decided to go with Salted Fish Steamed Minced Meat ($6), Sliced Fish Steamed Egg ($6) and Si Chuan Vegetable Stewed Pork Ribs Soup ($3.50) to go along with 2 bowls of rice at 0.50 cents each. I pointed to the table right in front of the stall when I was asked where do I sit. I waited for about 10 minutes before it was served. 

Salted Fish Steamed Minced Meat ($6). My dining companion commented that the texture was a bit too soft and not too much taste of salted fish in it. There was a piece of salted fish right at the corner though. The minced meat was of a generous portion for the price, garnished with chopped spring onions, coriander, and fried shallots. 

Sliced Fish Steamed Egg ($6). We prefer this to Salted Fish Steamed Minced Meat. The texture of the steamed egg was smooth and soft. I did not expect the sliced fish to go so well with it. It was served with light soy sauce and garnished with chopped spring onions as well as dried shallots. 

Si Chuan Vegetable Stewed Pork Ribs Soup ($3.50) was a good choice too. It consists of a few pieces of preserved vegetable with few chunks of pork ribs, slices of tomato and red dates. It was unexpectedly flavorful with nicely cooked pork ribs. 

This stall is definitely worth a try if you are here for lunch, not fanciful but homely and satisfying.
