Among the longest-serving, most well-known brands, they still attract long queues daily for their reasonably priced and tasty dishes. Queue moves relatively quick, averaging a 20-minute wait.
.
The fresh and boneless mackerel fish fillets, both natural and fried, are served in a generous portion. Large and chunky, yet tender flaky in texture, each fish slice has lovely meaty sweet savoury flavour.
.
The garnishes of crunchy cabbage and juicy tomato, lend lovely vegetal sweet flavour. Nice pairing with fluffy white rice, with grainy sweet notes.
.
The robust broth carries bold sweet savoury salty flavour, from stewing fosh bones for hours. I prefer the rendition without milk, where you can taste the depth of flavour in the soup.

Like their closest competitor a few stalls away, this renowned decades-old stall attracts long queues during peak lunch periods.
.
Unlike their competitor however, their rendition features mackerel fish which is bone-in, requiring careful consumption. Fresh and thick sliced, the fish is tender with meaty sweet savoury flavour.
.
The soft rice porridge holds grainy sweet flavour, but their broth is more decadent with the addition of pork lard cubes, resulting in a savoury salty sweet flavour.
.
Between these 2 stalls, my preference is for their competitor's version; though this is certainly a note-worthy rendition.

A relatively new contender, this brand is unique as they use only sea bass fish in their dishes, offering it in both soup and claypot versions.
.
Portions are decent, and regulars tend to go for the flavoured versions, as their stand-alone soup is pretty non-descript. This being a chili and lime juice rendition that kicks with sharp spicy tangy zesty sour sweet flavour, yum.
.
Primarily, the main flavour profile lies in the seasoned boneless fresh sea bass fish fillets, both natural and fried, tender chunky in texture, carrying meaty savoury sweet salty flavour.
.
Chunks of juicy tomato, tender bitter gourd slices, crisp lettuce, and soft tofu bean curd, combine for vegetal bitter sweet flavour. Paired with fluffy white rice with grainy sweet notes.
.
Service has been noted to be lukewarm and transactional, and prices are slightly higher than other brands, though they aren't the most expensive around.

This couple-run, under-the-radar stall has been quietly drawing queues, but has very little online or media presence.
.
Still, those who know will visit time and again, thanks to their generous portions, fresh ingredients, and great taste.
.
The boneless mackerel fish fillets are thick, chunky, and tender. Both natural and fried carry meaty sweet savoury flavour, nicely clean-tasting.
.
The robust broth, filled with crisp lettuce, soft bitter gourd, and wispy egg floss, has bold sweet salty savoury vegetal eggy flavour, with barely any bitter taste.
.
The fried fish roe is a popular add-on here. Pairs well with fluffy white rice and its grainy sweet flavour.

Serving for about 2 decades, the success of this stall, with perpetual long queues that form even before they open for the day, has resulted in a streamlining of their menu offerings and opening times.
.
These days, there is only 1 option on the menu (a mixed fish soup and rice set) with a few minor customisations (add-ons). Ordering is simply a matter of stating how many sets you want, dine-in or takeaway - great process efficiency for the kitchen.
.
The appeal lies in their secret broth, a delectable and robust stock, cloudy with hours of simmered fish bones and herbs. Full-bodied and warm, delicious savoury sweet salty flavours, excellent on cold rainy days.
.
The fresh mackerel fish, both natural and fried, are nicely deboned, small but tender flaky in texture, with meaty sweet savoury flavour.
.
There's crisp cabbage with vegetal sweet notes, and fluffy white rice with grainy sweet flavour to complete.
.
The intensity of non-stop serving has led them to open just 2.5 hours every weekday, usually selling out before that.

Now run by the 2nd-generation since its founding in 1997, this humble stall is loved by regulars for its hearty portions and comforting old-school taste.
.
The light broth is warm and comforting, with pleasant sweet savoury salty flavour, and on cold rainy days, simply divine.
.
The soft rice porridge is accompanied by juicy tomato, crisp lettuce, and fried shallots for aroma, lending grainy vegetal sweet savoury flavour.
.
The mackerel fish is sliced thin, but portion is plentiful, each deboned fresh fillet being meaty sweet savoury in taste.

For over 2 decades, this humble stall has been drawing queues - thanks to their meticulous pot-by-pot preparation and fresh fish filleted or fried just moments before.
.
I typically order without milk, but the broth is sufficiently robust on its own, carrying decent sweet savoury salty flavour, a taste that appeals across generations.
.
The garnishes of crisp cabbage, crunchy garland chrysanthemum, juicy tomato, and soft silken tofu bean curd, combine for pleasant vegetal sweet savoury flavour.
.
The thick and chunky tender fillets of boneless mackerel fish, both natural and fried, hold meaty sweet savoury flavour, yum. I like it paired with fluffy white rice, and its mild grainy sweet flavour.
.
Queue stretches up to 45 minutes during peak lunch hour.

Soup stock boiled with fish bones for hours, till the broth turns a creamy yellow white shade, laced with black pepper, white pepper, ginger, evaporated milk, and a dash of XO (extra old) brandy. Bright sweet salty savoury spice peppery boozy flavour.
.
Paired with smooth thick rice vermicelli noodles with grainy sweet flavour, and crisp cabbage with vegetal sweet notes.
.
The medium chunks of bone-in toman / snakehead fish fillets are flaky and tender, with sweet savoury salty flavour, pulling off the bone with a bite.

This stall, which uniquely sells 3 different meats (fish, duck, pork), has been run by Tay Kim Song and his wife since 1985, though his father founded the brand way before that.
.
The clear soup packs bold flavour, from boiling pork and fish bones over hours, beautifully sweet savoury in taste.
.
Garnishes include crisp lettuce, wispy seaweed, juicy tomato, and crisp coriander, with vegetal earthy herbal sweet flavour.
.
The generous portion of large, thick cut, boneless mackerel fish fillets, in the mixed duo of natural and fried slices, carry lovely meaty tender flaky texture with sweet savoury salty flavour.
.
Served with fluffy braised vegetable rice studded with cabbage and dried shrimp, lending grainy savoury earthy sweet flavour.
.
A personal favourite rendition, an occasional craving. Yum.

This unassuming stall offers a range of zi char dishes, alongside a traditional fish soup. You have a choice of adding XO (extra old) brandy or not, the default is without alcohol.
.
If you opt for the non-alcoholic version, the broth remains decently rich, with primary notes of the white pepper, black pepper, ginger, and evaporated milk, being milky sweet savoury peppery spice in taste.
.
The long silky smooth rice vermicelli noodles carry mild grainy sweet notes, while the crunchy chye sim / chinese flowering cabbage lends vegetal sweet flavour.
.
The medium fillets of boneless toman / snakehead fish are chunky and soft, with meaty sweet salty savoury flavour. I like to add chopped red chili for a spicy kick.

Run by a husband-and-wife duo since before 2010, it's said that they loved drinking, and thus decided to add XO (extra old) brandy into their dishes.
.
The stall sells a range of zi char dishes, but most come for their fish soup... though be prepared for their gruff, no nonsense, functional service (and don't be undecided).
.
The broth is rich and pearl opaque, with a depth of sweet savoury salty peppery spice boozy flavour, the undercurrent of XO brandy and Shaoxing rice wine being distinct. Pairs well with the long silky smooth rice vermicelli noodles with mild grainy sweet notes.
.
The crisp cabbage lends vegetal sweet flavour, while the large boneless fillets of toman / snakehead fish are chunky yet tender with sweet savoury peppery spice flavour. Shiok.

They've refreshed their brand name across their outlets in 2022, though some of their stalls still carry the former name.
.
Auspicious name aside, there are 2 unique points to their rendition - the use of chewy white clams which lend a beautiful sweet savoury note to the soup; and the inclusion of a fried tofu bean curd skin roll stuffed with fish paste, bouncy and tender with sweet salty savoury flavour.
.
The broth is also garnished with tender bitter gourd and wispy egg floss, lending combined eggy savoury salty vegetal bitter sweet flavour.
.
The duo of deboned mackerel fish, both natural and fried, are tender with a slight springy spongy texture, and carry fresh sweet savoury flavour. Sliced medium thin, nicely chunky. Pair with white rice.
