This post was initially intended for the black bean sliced fish hor fun from Sun Seng Gourmet's Corner (#02-061) which is located at the far end of Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre.

Unfortunately, the stall was closed when I visited on a Tuesday (their off day is on Sunday and Monday).

Thankfully, I recalled that Mr Fish (#02-073) which I visited a week ago for its sliced fish bee hoon offered the same dish therefore, I retraced my steps back to the stall.

I have never had had black bean sliced fish hor fun ($5) before therefore I ordered a plate with the purple-haired auntie to try it out.

Unlike the usual seafood hor fun that come with a light-colored gravy, this was topped with slices of fish and drenched in a dark-colored gravy instead.

Flavor wise, they were light-handed on the salt so I had to add a little soy sauce to make it more pleasing for my palate.

However, I find the taste of pepper is more pronounced than the black bean. I feel like I am having black pepper sliced fish hor fun more than anything else.

To give credit where credit is due, the slices of fish are very fresh. The texture of the sang yu (snakehead/toman) used in this dish is firm, not flaky and does not crumble or break into pieces easily.

But taste aside, I had to admit the portion is value for money indeed.

Online reviews touted the hor fun for its excellent wok hei but somehow, I find the prized 'breathe of wok' quite lacking here. Perhaps the wok is not scorched enough for the hor fun to be seared properly?

Nevertheless, this black bean sliced fish hor fun did not impress me as much as their sliced fish bee hoon soup did which I will stick to for future visits.
