Fish Soup from An Ji in Chinatown
Yep, it's back to Singapore, and back to fish soup again. Tonight we headed over to An Ji in Chinatown, where - among many other things on the menu - was a listing for fish soup. But rather than get the standard sliced fish version, I opted for something they called fish fillet noodles, which came with thick chunks of fish that appeared almost chicken breast-like. They seem to have been stir fried in sesame oil and white pepper first, giving this bowl a fragrant aroma that resonated instantly with me.
It was distinctive enough that this immediately leapt to the top of my list of favorite fish soups around town...and the fact that the tasty broth didn't use milk was all the more impressive (it's interesting that there are so many variations of this dish - it's almost as if one could build a museum showcasing all of the varieties). This was only the cheapest S$5 (US$3.45) version too...I wonder what the top-end S$15 (US$10.35) version gets.
