Chuan Jiang Hao Zi Steamboat Restaurant

We saw U channel’s Anna appearing on a newspaper cutting at the entrance of the shop. So, we had our lunch there.

The shopfront 

Decorative MeNu 🙂

Thick wooden chopsticks – I like


Noodle with Minced Pork (Sichuan style) Soup – taste like instant noodles with stir-fried minced pork – S$5 + 10%

Their steamed dumpling does not have much juice in it and has more chives than meat. Skin is also thicker. Probably, sichuan styled – it’s served with chilli. S$6.50 + 10%

We asked if they have steamed dumpling (shui2 jiao3).

The waitress replied “Yes, we have shui4 jiao4” – we looked at each other and giggled. Maybe, that’s how it’s pronounced in Sichuan? So cute 🙂 

We asked for vinegar with ginger – thinking it would come shredded.

Looks like soy sauce with minced garlic, isn’t it? In fact, it’s vinegar with minced ginger. Taste is the same as usual.

We didn’t finish the noodles – not that it tastes horrible. It was too much for lunch.

Probably, they are better at serving Sichuan steamboat 🙂

  1. looks like maggi mee… haha… there are a lot of other better food, at cheaper prices, at this place 🙂

    and… what the media chooses to feature might not always necessarily be good / suited to personal tastes. they may feature bcos the place is has something else tht is interesting… haha..

  2. 7+ years working in the vicinity, I think I’ve tried most of the good food there. Missed the hawker food at Chinatown Complex. They are still doing up the place… why take so long and transit market at Outram is so far… u know Tanjong Pagar food centre is also currently being renovated? Also, a good place for hawker food.

    the sichuan noodle with minced pork is not too bad. It’s just too much for our appetite and on a hot day.

    a stall owner at Chinatown told me one media company asked if they wished to pay to get featured on a food programme. Of course, the pre-requisite is the food should minimally be good. Well… 🙂

  3. have u tried beijing folk restaurant? 🙂

    authentic beijing food, as vouched by my beijing friends haha…

  4. is it the one at Keong Siak St?

    we didn’t like it especially their service. The first time we patronised the place was in 2005… I think. They took like 20-30min later to tell my friend the item he ordered was not available. u can imagine the look on his face.

    Never went back again.

  5. […] for this ever since Tues. Well, actually on Tues, Hyacinthus and I went to this Sichuan restaurant (Chuan Jiang Hao Zi Steamboat Restaurant) at Chinatown and we ordered a bowl of Zha Jiang Mian each. However when it was served, it […]
