Tucked away in a basement corner of an old mall, the ambience and mien of this bustling Hainanese steamboat restaurant hasn’t changed much, although it has expanded into neighbouring shop units in recent years. Founded nearly 40 years ago by former street hawkers who used to ply their trade around Middle Road and Beach Road, it specialises in old-school steamboat, sets replete with tripe, pork liver, sea cucumber and cockles besides the usual prawns, beef and pork. Other perenially popular dishes include pork satay, chicken rice, and zi char staples like Hainanese pork chop. Usually crowded on weekends.
