Mei Xiang Black & White Fish Soup – Find them by the long queue!
Having been around for over a decade at Berseh Food Centre, Mei Xiang Black & White Fish Soup whips up a delectable bowl of mixed fish soup. Spot the queue on the second floor during lunch time and you will know how popular the stall is! During our day of visit, the owner is doing one man show as the wife fell ill. From taking in orders to preparing the fish soup to mending the cashier … It’s a really tough and exhausting job! So, if you have to wait in line for this fish soup, please be patient.
There is only the small portion ($6) and big portion ($8) of mixed fish soup served here. The winning factor is the robust stock. One sip and it’s apparent that the stock was the result of hours of simmering fish bones to yield such sweet and full-bodied flavours. On rainy days, we’re pretty sure the slurp-worthy soup will be gone in a blink of an eye.
As for the fish, “black” simply refers to the fried fish while “white” refers to the fresh sliced fish. The former was tastier and had a nice chewy texture. Do be careful of fish bones as this fried fish isn’t the usual fillets you get elsewhere. The fish slices were delightfully smooth and succulent, especially when you dunk it into the superb chilli sauce. The first punch was full of zest which enhanced the taste of the sliced fish. This chilli sauce is also a great complement to the plain rice. We were eating while wiping perspiration from our foreheads throughout our meal.
Mei Xiang’s Black & White Fish Soup stall is really worth returning for. Do note that you’re only allowed to dine-in at this stall. If you want to take-away, you have to bring your own containers. They are open on Sundays and public holidays although most of the stalls at Berseh food centre are closed on these days. Priced at $6 per bowl, you might find it a little steep for food centres but the quality beats those ordinary food court standards hands down.
