Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy Steamboat

We are back to Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy, this round the visit was to review their steamboat, since this is one of their Chef’s recommendations signature offering here.

The Charcoal red grouper steamboat $30/37

The steamboat was served in the most traditional manner – the aluminum chimney pot with burning charcoal. Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy offers only red grouper for the fish, so you don’t have too many choice. The steamboat came with cabbage, seaweed, yam and of course chunks of fish, broth base was milky white from the collegen yielding from the dissolved gelatin.

The red grouper was fresh and portion was reasonably generous, broth was alluding with a peculiar taste, the refilling broth maintained a good standard and had not altered the sweetness and savoury of the taste. Honestly, we distaste steamboat using diluted broth for the refilling, a pleasant start could end with a disastrous nightmare, fortunately, three time of refillings were proven the consistency in the standard at Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy steamboat, a good experience and a thumb up for them.

Fried Bee Hoon with Pig Trotters $8/16

Besides the steamboat, Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy is popular with their zi char, they serve pretty decent standard of pork trotters fried bee hoon, this is always one of our favorite and must order dishes here, however, the taste was completely off this round, our favorite dish was bland and tasteless (or actually tasted bitter!), we called for the waitress to vent our disappointment but nothing was done, service standard obviously need to be improved.

Fried long bean with prawn $15

The tempura style long bean and prawn were masterfully cooked and hit on the right note. Thin but fragrant crispy coating make you hard to resist the temptation. A highly recommended one.

Salted Egg Chicken $11/15/20

Fall into the same destiny as the rest, ordinary and run-of-the-mill chicken chunks fried with salted eggs. We expect a little more efforts to make the dish a little warmth.

Four Treasure Beancurd $12/18/24

Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy Steamboat Our Verdict

We are on the best steamboat hunt and Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy Steamboat will be under the stress test to compete with the rest steamboat stars. The limited choice of fish probably taken some marks away but luckily the freshness of the fresh and succulent broth made up the gaps.
