Chong Yen Steamed Fish Food Stall 壮源(松鱼头)饭档 @ Chan Sow Lin

We were bored one Saturday and decided to hang out for food. Somewhere not really regular to us. Somewhere populared.

Fishy thoughts crossed our minds and headed for Chan Sow Lin.
Arrived at a hutlike stall full of patrons. Each and everyone seemed satisfied with their dishes and every table has the familiar order.


No one was petered out by its small and disregarded exterior. Customers here were willing to wait for their turn to be seated. And lining up was unavoidable during our visit. Another catchy service they offered is; sauna. A joke made by customers with the boss as honestly, the environment  is hot. However, as I mentioned earlier, patrons do not mind at all despite some flaws in areas of surroundings with this stall.


What’s their call?
Steamed Fish.

Chong Yen has made up a towering achievement when it comes to running a business for years, even generations, and loyal customers will know where to go when the cravings for some steamed proteins drops by. Choose to steam your fish with either ginger with fermented bean paste. But these two options are most probably secured by every table.

Steamed Fish with Ginger. I heart this share most. You could enjoy this smooth portion better when tasted with the minced ginger and the tasty sauce showered on it.


Needed a tangier flavour? Order the Steamed Fish with fermented Bean Paste. This goes well with the rice. Tangy sauce with spiciness that’ll make you sweat extra apart from the hot environment in this eatery.


Some choy sum to go with the fishy orders 🙂
The man in charge. This is the chef behind the recipe. This is the boss who manage to capture his loyal fans appetite and get new customers returning.
