Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hoon

Warning: Parental Guidance Required.

----------

Sweaty Prelude

...uhh-uhh-ahh-ahh...

I can't help but recall my virginal experience at this restaurant. If the XO was any stronger, I would have unconsciously knocked someone that day and my kid would be in kindergarten come 2009. What vivid imagination a Piscean has, eh? And perhaps it's due to the romantic sign that I fell in love (or lust) with this place since the first time I was done.

On the subject of fish, this restaurant is reputable for its orgasmic fish head soup, complete with a dose of brandy. Aphrodisiac or what, eh? This time, unlike the green me back then, I came prepared. Equipped with the right technique on how to do it right to achieve multiple peaks of the highest amplitude, thanks to THE VOICE. And of course, there are many foreplays, I mean side dishes to whip up your senses besides the soup.

Dua, Tiga, Empat...Main!

Just the thought of the Har Cheong Kai or fried chicken with prawn paste caused a surge of the mucho macho hormone and got my synapses exploding to that jumpy "Where's Your Head At" tune by Basement Jaxx. Unlike the typical, tasteless name-for-the-sake-of-business type, this version was absolutely wonderful. The thickness of the batter was just right, making the crispy coating not too hard to bite. The aromatic prawn paste was aptly applied and complemented the tender, succulent, fresh wings well. Much like that miraging numerical position.

Interesting mainCourse

Known as Sam Loh or "three stirs", the smooth strips of fair-skinned, flat rice noodle were stir-fried together with beansprouts (both ends trimmed, mind you), scallion and slices of haruan (snakeheads). With a lightly charred aroma and savoury taste, the simple dish was simply, a winner. Threesomes never tasted this good.

Main of the mains, the fish soup was equally flavourful. It was also slightly creamy and came with a dense whitish colour that maketh many a man proud. All thanks to the evaporated milk. The generous pieces of fish were flaky and no earthy taste was detected. The vegetables provided additional crunch. The main attraction being the strong XO aroma which amplified the wonderful concoction.

Remembering THE VOICE's advice, the soup was mated with the noodles and indeed, caused a climaxing sensation, complete with a post spasm reaction. Ok, that was an utter exaggeration. In a more sane manner, it was delicious. Imagine a combination of the richness of the soup, charred aroma of the noodle and the strong XO scent. And tell me you are not salivating.

Embracement

Like makeup sex, the S$28 dinner (for two) was very much satiating. Sans the breakups, fights and silence, of course. Oh, and the service. Known for its hostility, I was surprised to find the cashier (the boss, I think)..well, normal.

Should I consider pre-kindergarten education too?

Hi!

I dropped by that Buona Vista coffee shop where the fish soup stall once was, and that whole place had been newly renovated into yet another China-infested foodcourt!

I asked the drinks operator (who most likely runs the new XO stall which tries to emulate the original stall run by the previous fat owner), and he tried to trick me into thnking that the famous stall still exists in the same foodcourt but under new ownership. I had my doubts and asked him again. This time, he reluctantly revealed that the previous XO stall had moved away and a new XO fish soup stall has replaced it. As expected, he refused to tell me the relocation address of the previous stall.

Does anyone have any idea where the new location is?? If you do, pls let everyone know. Appreciate if you could also email to me at 'auntypanty@hotmail.com'. Thank!!
