Not the whole head but this is more than enough...

From time to time, I would like to give something different a good try. Therefore, rather than giving the usual 'cze char' dishes a try, I ended up eating something much more funkier and bigger. Introducing...

'Steamed Song Fish Head in Hot Sauce'(驰名酱蒸松鱼头)
Even though this is merely half a fish head, but it's much more
bigger than those that you are getting from your neighbourhood food
stall or a restaurant. On top of that, the price of the fish head
over here is ridiculously cheap. They are selling it at a relatively
low price of S$13. @.@""

For a start, the sauce is pretty interesting. The gluey texture and
the nice mixture of salty and sweet taste(soy beans) makes it pretty
delicious and unforgettable. Usually, the chef over here will topped
it with crispy pork lard, but you can also have it without the pork
lard just by asking. (In fact, if you like the taste of the bottled
'Soya Bean' sauce that you can get in the local supermarket, you
should give this dish a good try.)

Meat wise, it's pretty fresh but the taste isn't super fantastic.
However, if you dipped it inside the sauce, the taste of the sauce
will blend with the meat nicely. In fact, the fish head over here
also comes with 1 of the eyeballs(=.=""), a reasonable amount of
fish meat and also the slimy bits around the mouth. And if you have
a gigantic appetite, this dish is big enough to help you to empty
more than 2 bowls of white rice. :P

As for the drawback, I guess that would be the bones. This isn't
an atas fish head, where the waiter will help you to remove all the
bones. But if you ask me, when I compare the amount of fish meat
and the fish bones that I'm getting, I think that the fish bones
are simply nothing at all. :D

So where can you give the fish head a good try?
The name of this stall would be
'Cheng Ji Steamed Fish Head in Hot Sauce'(成记驰名酱蒸松鱼头).
It's located inside 'Chinatown Complex Food Centre'.
