The stall owner is a particularly sweet lady who has an amazingly photographic memory. She will always remember to hold off the coriander and garland chrysanthemum (tung oh) and replace it with lettuce instead. The Sliced Fish Soup ($4 for a medium portion) comes with silken tofu, tomato, sliced fish, lettuce and garnished with crispy fried onions and seaweed.
The fish is unbelievably fresh and smooth, with nary a hint of fishiness. That's a hallmark of good Teochew cuisine, quality ingredients and a light hand with seasonings to emphasize the natural flavour of the ingredient.
This stall serves the unusual combination of salted bean sauce with sliced chili padi (tiny chilies), despite packing a punch, does not overwhelm the delicate freshness of the fish.
