Everything you need to know to get your Han Kee fish soup fix


If you are looking for a satisfying and healthy meal, you can't go wrong with the famous Han Kee fish soup at Amoy Street Food Centre. This is one of the best fish soups I have ever tasted, and I'm not exaggerating. The sliced fish is so fresh and tender, you can tell they use quality ingredients. They use Batang (mackerel) fish and it's 100% boneless which is awesome. 

The portions are generous too, you won't feel hungry after finishing your bowl, but definitely recommend getting the $6 medium portion because it's just so yummy. The soup is clear and light, but full of flavour. It's so refreshing and comforting, especially on a rainy day. I always feel like having more after I finish my soup. 

The chilli padi in soya sauce is a must-have for me. It adds a kick to the noodles and fish, and makes the whole dish more exciting. If you love spicy food, you will love this combination. You can choose between thick beehoon, thin beehoon or rice to go with your soup. I personally prefer the thick beehoon, because it absorbs the soup better and has a nice chewy texture. Another option is to add fish eggs, which are not on the menu, but you can ask for them. They are soft and creamy, and add more richness to the soup. They also have porridge option, which I have not tried yet, but I heard it's good too.


The price is very reasonable for the quality and quantity you get. Only $5 for a regular portion, which is a bargain in my opinion. The price has not changed for over 7 years since I discovered this stall.

Some tips to enjoy your fish soup experience:

1. Know what you want to order before you join the queue. The queue is very long, so when it's about 15-20 people away from your turn, the stall aunty will come to you and take your order. They are very efficient, but they don't like to waste time, so be ready with your order when they ask you.

2. Be prepared to wait for a while, 30-45 minutes on average. The queue moves quite fast, but there are always many people waiting. Trust me, it's worth the wait.

3. Bring cash with you, as they don't accept other payment methods from what I know.

Conclusion

This is hands down my favourite fish soup in Singapore, nothing else comes close! If you haven't tried it yet, you are missing out on a great dish. Do yourself a favour and give it a try, you won't regret it!
