Steam Sea Bass with Thai Lime Sauce ($19) – A good size sea bass simmering in spicy and tangy Thai lime broth.

Claypot Tung Hoon with Prawns ($10) – A huge serving of savoury tung hoon with firm large prawns.

Tung hoon is brimming with robust flavour of prawn and a char aroma. Prawns are deshelled for ease of consumption.
Fish Maw Soup with Crab Meat and Quail Egg ($12) – Served in a claypot with generous amount of fish maw for the price.
Fish maw has a spongy texture and absorbs the robust gravy. With no fishy taste, it goes well with the creamy quail egg and gooey gravy. Add a dash of black vinegar and some pepper if you wish, the same way you would enjoy a bowl of shark fin. This is a good substitute for shark fin soup as fish maw soup is also a priced delicacy due to its high nutrition value and taste.

Kang Kong soaks up the savoury gravy. Peppered with so much chilli, garlic and sambal, this has to be intensely flavourful.

Mussels are a tad chewy with custardy innards. Get to these before the rest of the seafood to enjoy them at the optimum texture.

Rich creamy coconut gravy with good amount chicken. Soft tender long beans and firm golf ball size Thai egg plants with a delicate flavour coated in thick gravy.
