Seng Kee 119 Steamed Fish Head at Chinatown

The steamed fish head is a common dish that is easily available at Chinatown Complex Food Centre as there are a few stalls serving it. And, this is amongst the most popular choices. When we were there for lunch, almost all the customers seated near the stall ordered their steamed fish head. We ordered it too since it is a must-try dish together with Pork Ribs King and 2 bowls of rice.

This Cantonese style steamed fish head is priced at $15 for a portion, consisting half a Song Fish head in their special sauce then topped with crispy lard. The fish though had a little mud taste but was tasted quite fresh. The special sauce was good to go with the rice, it tasted slightly spicy coupled with a slight tanginess and overall, quite savory. The fermented beans and crispy lard added flavor. The fish head was meaty but it came with a lot of fine bones so got to be careful when eating it.

The Pork Ribs King was a disappointment. My dining companion took a bite and said, "The meat is hard and not too flavorful."
