Yi Bing Qing Fish Head Steamboat (意槟情鱼头炉) @ Nagore Road, Georgetown, Penang.
Yi Bing Qing is a big name when it comes to steamboat restaurant in Penang, the well-established steamboat restaurant is known to serve some of the best Teo Chew styled Fish Head Hot Pot in town. The signature Fish Head Hot Pot would consist Deep Fried Fish Head and meat in milky broth, Yam, Cabbage and Pork Balls, additional items can be ordered at additional costs. The restaurant is fully air-conditioned but in the event the place is fully occupied, diners may be required to be seated outside (if they are willing to). Advance reservation needs to be made early to avoid disappointment, walk-in as early as possible otherwise.
Traditional Charcoal Fish Head Set (Rm 65)
Diners have the option to choose between milk-added fish broth or without; we opted for latter choice. The basic package of the traditional Charcoal Fish Head Set consists some huge chunks of Deep Fried Fish Head, Pork Meat Balls, Cabbage, Yam and Seaweed. The texture of the broth was a little thicker than usual, due to the presence of Yam but it was still alright, though we'd prefer the broth to be more well-seasoned. They were very generous with the Fish Meat nevertheless and we enjoyed ours with a simple Garlic-Chili dip. If there was something that one should not miss, it would be their Deep Fried Fish Skin... perfectly deep fried and spot-on seasoning.
