Yan Ji Seafood Soup [Media Invite] [Closed]

Have you heard of the famous Seafood Soup humble hawker stall in the Former Woodlands Food Center? I still remember those days when I travelled there just to have this umami-filled soup. 

Yan Ji Seafood Soup was established in 1984 and its first seafood soup stall is located at the former Woodlands Food Center.

Just recently in September, Yanji Seafood Soup opened a new outlet in the bustling Bedok Central to commemorate its four decades of soupy goodness. The man behind all this is actually Mr Chia Tok Whee, the current second-generation owner who took over his late father's business to fulfil his father's dream of expanding their family heritage dishes across Singapore.

The homemade deep-fried Prawn Rolls aka "Ngoh Hiong" was painstakingly made from scratch. Minced meat and prawns were mixed together with other ingredients. Afterwards, they were wrapped under the beancurd skin, forming a roll and deep fried.

Pulling out a segment of the Prawn Roll and we can see the chopped pieces of chestnuts with the minced meat. With the crispy wrap and its sufficient hints of 5 spice powder dipping into the house chilli sauce, it's so yummy.

The Dory Seafood soup is Yan Ji's best seller. It has slices of dory fish, prawns and minced pork. The soup base is very flavourful and packed with a good sole fish taste. The natural sweetness from the minced meat, seafood, mushroom and tomato produces robust flavours of seafood soup.

Their rich and flavourful broth is slow-cooked for up to 6 hours, using premium seafood ingredients. 

Crayfish Seafood Soup (Dory) 虾婆海鲜汤(多莉鱼)- $14

Besides the soup that caused my addiction, the next culprit in line is the mass of finely minced meat that contained a unique flavour.

Every order is cooked individually, with the right amount of broth with precise timing and heat control.

Each and every ingredient used is premium and with quality uncompromised. The prawns used were fresh, plump and succulent. 

Yanji Seafood Soup is also located in Marsiling Mall Hawker Center, 21 Marsiling Lane. and 219 Jalan Besar.
