    Sometimes old school is the best school.

    I’ve had a childhood love affair with red rice wine chicken mee sua (红糟鸡汤面线) since my mom used to make this when I was growing up. There aren’t that many places in Singapore that still serve this dish, so this establishment is where I come to when I feel like a taste of comfort and nostalgia.

    Seow Choon Hua is decidedly old school. The signboard and decor looks unchanged from the past 30 years, there is no IG handle or QR code menu, and you order from one of the family or staff and pay directly in cash.

    But the red rice wine chicken mee sua hits the spot. The $8 medium version comes with a generous amount of chicken pieces, but the star is undoubtedly the chewy mee sua and tasty soup. I know that some people prefer their soup to have a stronger taste of the rice wine, but as someone who doesn’t like alcohol much, Seow Choon Hua’s flavour profile is perfect for me.

    You can’t come here and not order the handmade Foochow fishballs. The small bowl of Foochow fishball soup (福州鱼圆汤) ($6) is enough for sharing among two pax, and the fishballs, which are stuffed with minced meat, have that deliciously chewy texture from being made with fresh batang fish.

    A steamy bowl of traditional chicken in red wine soup helped revive my day. An equally traditional kopi sealed the deal. Expect the chicken meat texture to be tougher as its juice has drained into the soup. Finish the soup and for those with strong teeth, first finish off the chicken with the sliced red chilli in soy sauce. Leave a little soup at the end to wash down the chicken. Satisfaction.

    Quality Fu Zhou fishball soup! The fish balls and dumplings are freshly made and have a very tangy bite to it. They also serve great red wine chicken mee sua, a rare traditional dish these days. My only gripe is that for $6, the portion is slightly small. Nonetheless a great bowl of fishball soup!

    Old school kopitiam serving Foo Chow cuisine. Depending on personal preference, the handmade fishballs are those soft type and not ‘QQ’ type.

    I love the fishball and yen pi, the rest are ok only. Worth eating if you are nearby and craving for Foo Chow’s stuff

    A rundown old looking small coffeeshop located near Beach Road at Sultan Gate and a short distance from the Nicoll Highway mrt stn, selling popular handmade fuzhou fishballs and also other items etc….
    I visited that place every year especially nearing Cny period. This year 2021 as usual I made the effort to go all the way from Wdlds to get handmade Fuzhou fishballs for my family almost weekly. I was disappointed that the female staffs shown unfriendly n unhelpful attitude when I bought only 60pcs 2 weeks ago. She was trying to press me to get more items from her.
    I went again on Tues last week to buy 200pcs and this time she shown better face.
    I thought business was not good during this Covid 19 period so I wanted to support them so that good traditional food can carry on. Now I m thinking maybe business been very good for them so the staffs proudly cannot be bothered with small purchases.
    I felt down hearted with them.

    Discover this fuzhou eatery by chance. Read about it on some food blog and decide to give this place a try since its near my workplace. I had the 福州三鮮麵 SGD$5, dry noodle version. Noodle tasted nice so was the homemade foochow fishball. Very unique because it has pork filling in it. Other than that, it also comes with fish dumpling as well as wantons. I think its worth it because for $5, you get to try a variety of items. They are popular for their red wine chicken as well as the fish soup.

    Seow Choon Hua Restaurant Review: Red Wine Soup And Fuzhou Fish balls At Bugis

    Fuzhou food is more than just fishballs stuffed with meat. It’s also about mee sua bathed in bright red soup. Prized for its replenishing properties, red rice wine is just one of those uncommon foods that’s actually good for you – and Seow Choon Hua is one of the few places in Singapore that serve this delicacy!

    Best Fuzhou fish ball in the whole SG.. u cant find another stall that can do it this good..

    I’m from a Foochow family, so this is a great place for me to have food that I grew up eating. This is my first time here, so my review may get updated in the future. I ordered the red wine Mee sua during this visit and it’s really good. Sure, there are a few bones to pick (pun intended), but this is the closest thing I’ve had in Singapore to food from home.

    If i could turn back time…as the song goes.
    Its the history and memories that are delicious with this place. It is replete with Singapore’s history and people stories. The young mother who did her own start up that from helping out in grocery funds to funding the family and buying the current shop. From hostile takeover to maintaining corporate control. Do you know where SCH started from, hint…coffee shop nearer Sultan’s gate, just lower down at Beat metal street. All sorys of metal shops line the avenue in days past.

    Ordered their Foo Chow combination noodle dry and the red wine chicken vermicelli. Not sure why the service staff kept recommending the menu of fish related stuff to all their customers when most were there for their traditional Foo Chow delicacies. If anyone got persuaded to order. Do leave your comments here for our reference, haha…My wife happens to be Foo Chow. So I’m familiar with FC dishes. Overall I would say the taste is indeed authentic especially their best sellers I ordered though I would prefer the chicken to be stewed longer so that the red wine gets soaked into the meat.

    The foo chow fish balls, yen pi, dumplings and fish dumplings are all handmade. Therefore, their texture is unique and not something you can find in machine made varieties. These fishballs and dumplings are also available to be bought individually as dishes for steamboat at home.

    The noodles are seasoned with a blend of soy sauce although quite delicious is quite common.

    The red rice wine chicken is also very tasty and rich. It’s a traditional food for women who has just given birth. You can even buy the red rice wine extract and the red rice wine to cook the dish yourself at home.

    Came here when I was a kid. Can’t really remember the taste though. Now that I visited it again, I must say that this is unique. Not many people serve Yan Pi. You can still get Foochow fishball as convenience food though. Ordered dry noodles with mixture of Foochow balls, Yan Pi, Wantan. Costs $5. The noodles is simple & can taste the mushroom sauce. They serve big cut chili which is a pity. The soup has a tinge of sweetness & is quite flavourful. Overall I would say it is a must try if you are in the vicinity. Parking can be a headache though.

    Great food.

    I tried the Red Glutinous Rice Wine Chicken Mee Sua (hong zao ji mian xian, $6/bowl). The soup is not too thick and has a subtle sweet taste from the rice wine. The chicken is also tender. It is quite a comforting soup.

    I also tried the soup consisting a mix of Fuzhou fishballs (with and without filling), yenbi, as well as dumplings. I personally like the texture of the fishballs — it is not too bouncy. It is also not fishy at all. The yenbi is also quite good — the skin is unique with a well-seasoned filling. The soup itself has a light, slightly sweet taste.

    Tucked within a row of shophouses, Seow Choon Hua Restaurant 箫钟华餐室 serves up nostalgia with their traditional and homely Fushou dishes.⁣

    𝗥𝗲𝗱 𝗪𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗡𝗼𝗼𝗱𝗹𝗲 𝗦𝗼𝘂𝗽: A really comforting bowl to have on a cold day or if you’re feeling a little under the weather! The chunky chicken pieces were tender and well-marinated, taking on the hue of the red rice yeast. We were impressed by the robust flavours of the fermented red wine lees (ang zao/红槽) and the strong taste of the wine in the broth.⁣

    𝗙𝗼𝗼 𝗖𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗯𝗶𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻: Comes with Fuzhou fish balls, dumplings and yan pi (燕皮)- this is one plate we definitely recommend! The star of the show is the Fuzhou fishballs! Unlike the conventional ones with a springy & compact texture, their version has a softer and more mochi-like texture. The minced meat inside is nicely seasoned as well, making it even more satisfying with every bite! ⁣

    The yan pi is also quite interesting and not something that can be seen often. Made from hammering the pork shank meat mixed with glutinous rice, the wrapper provides a tensile chewiness different from the usual dumpling skin!⁣

    The place I can feel at home for speaking my Fuzhou dialect! The boss can speak fluent Hokkian and Fuzhou dialects!
    The Fuzhou delicacy representative is so rare in Singapore nowadays, even the Red Yeast chicken that was easily found last time is diminishing.
    The Fuzhou have their own wanton style, which the wraps are not the normal texture-less smooth ones but thicker and more springy. Just sample all the different types of wantons to tell the difference: 肉燕 扁肉 云吞
    And of course the iconic Fuzhou fishball! I appreciate that the fish paste of the fish ball is not the overly springy type but rather taste more like the more authentic handmade ones made by my grandma.
    With the Chinese food scene here in Singapore saturated with Cantonese, Hokkien, Teochew food, it is certainly refreshing to see this shop, focus only on the Fuzhou food!

    New premises are nicer, very unfortunately the food didn’t upgrade. Full review:

    1) mee sua, still decent but seems a bit watered down and chicken is tough as leather. Feeling generous, so 4

    2) fishballs – they must have changed the recipe, because these used to be great, now rubbery can use to play squash, 3

    3) breaded fish – was recommended to me, wafer thin sliced fish for $8. Per slice more than a dollar, and very ordinary. 2

    A very comforting bowl of Red Wine Mee Sua as it’s hard to find this dish. The soup was filled to the brim. While the soup looks diluted, it was actually quite flavourful and strong taste of the wine. I love how they are not stingy with the soup as the soup is the main point.

    Yam abacus was disappointing though… the abacus taste like just plain mochi and not fragrant. Don’t like the chili as well and the mushroom is the sour kind.

Can’t tell what type of sauce they used to marinate it. The taste still lingering in my mouth even after a day. The noodle sauce was flavorful as well. Totally worth the visit, will definitely try out once again and more of other dishes.

    Wanted to go this place for a very long time, finally we’re here this morning! Soup was not salty, we’ve ordered the $10 portion. The bowl consist of Foochow fishballs, dumpling, fish dumpling, yanpi, normal fishballs. Handmade Foochow fishballs were much better than machine made I had to say. Harder to find this type of authentic and tranditional Foochow dishes and food found in Singapore. We also brought a small bottle worth of $7 of their handmade fermented red rice红糟to cook meesua at home. The aroma of the red rice were really power, as factory made ones are not so fragrant. Give it a try!

    The old school red rice wine mee sua is tasty with mild sweetness. The small portion at $6 is sufficient for one but not much meat from the chicken pieces. Good to order a mixed soup of handmade Foo Chow fishball and dumplings as side dish, perfect. The fishballs has the Q-ness unlike the mass-produced kind. Order at the table and pay cash when the food is served. Went during lunchtime, almost full house but no need to wait for a table.

    Heard that this place is one of the few that serves Foo chow food, something not that commonly found in SG. Nice customer service. Among all the dishes, I like the soup based of the 红糟鸡面线, however the taste didn’t penetrate well into the chicken. The rest of the items I think it’s just average.

    A small but popular eatery famous for the Foochow noodles, Red Yeast Chicken Noodle Soup, and the fried fish soup. The Foochow noodles are springy and comes with a variety of dumplings. Delicious. The Red Yeast Chicken Noodle Soup is another hot favorite. Very flavorful though the chicken part can be somewhat tough. They also sell the Red Yeast in various sizes, quite pricy.

    Tried the Foo Chow Combination noodles and also the traditional 算盘子。Noodles wise taste not bad overall but not superb. Ingredients are not bad. 算盘子 is average as we’ve tasted better elsewhere.

    Traditional Coffeeshop and it feels like we’re in Malaysia.

    Overall 3/5 stars

    The fish balls here are not the most authentic Fuzhou fish balls, but they are much better than those bought in supermarkets. The skin of the fish balls here is quite Q, but the meat inside is not authentic.

    Ordered the 2 dishes that seem to be the most popular, i.e. fuzhou fishball noodle and red wine chicken mee sua. The fuzhou fishballs are really bouncy and full of flavour, different from the normal fishball out there. The noodle has nice texture and not too salty also. The red wine chicken tastes quite mild and it can be stronger but it’s quite comforting. They’re $6 a bowl

    My to go place for foochow food! It’s hard to find authentic foochow food in Singapore, but the fish balls & “yan pi” are the best I’ve had (the skin is delicious). The red wine chicken noodles are really comforting too and they’re pretty generous with the chicken portions.

    Great for breakfast in the mornings. Not very crowded. The non spicy noodles have a very curious sweetness, and the fishballs are quite authentic to Fuzhou (according to a friend from there). Not too crowded too on a Saturday morning. Ample parking.

    A very comforting bowl of Red Wine Mee Sua as it’s hard to find this dish. The soup was filled to the brim. While the soup looks diluted, it was actually quite flavourful and strong taste of the wine. I love how they are not stingy with the soup as the soup is the main point.

    Yam abacus was disappointing though… the abacus taste like just plain mochi and not fragrant. Don’t like the chili as well and the mushroom is the sour kind.

    Interesting blast to the past feel in this homely restaurant, reminiscent of Malaysia. The red wine chicken soup was thick and rich and definitely the star of the show. The rest of the dishes however e.g. foo chow fishballs, dumplings were subpar. The dry noodles had an unique tasty marination and were well cooked.

    Overall, would recommend for a one time visit if around the immediate vicinity!

    The red glutinous rice noodles are not fragrant enough and have no wine taste. The dry noodles are much better than before, and they look clean when they arrive on the table. I don’t think they used to add a bunch of strange chicken insides, which would affect my appetite.

    Passed by the restaurant many times on my way to Golden Mile Food Centre. Finally tried the Foo Chow fish ball soup. It did not disappoint, the fish ball is plumpy with a nice texture and bits of pork inside. The soup is piping hot, light with a hint of vinegar. The small soup is $6 with 6 fish balls, I think there are $8 and $10 size too.

    You can also add noodles to the soup, or buy the fish balls to cook at home. Will be back to try other selections on the menu.

    They have both inside and outside seatings.

    Patronised their old shop many times over the last ten years, very satisfied with their red wine chicken all the time. First time to this shop along beach road which is a short walk from the old shop. A little dissapointed that the red wine chicken doesn’t taste like before as it wad somewhat diluted. However, the shop is much bigger and more comfortable compared to the old shop.

    Visited “Seow Choon Hua” after hearing about their Fuzhou delicacies from my parents.
    A casual eatery with indoor and outdoor seating, I was told by the gentleman manning the counter that they make everything in-house by hand. So it seemed logical to order their Mixed Bowl.
    In it were “Yuan Pi” (the small, juicy pork balls with the thinnest, most delicate wrapping – my favourite of the lot), Wanton (medium size pork dumplings), “Shui Gao” (large triangular dumplings), “Yu Yuan” (fishballs) and Fuzhou “Yu Yuan” (huge minced meat-filled fishballs with a mochi-like texture, so they’re unlike the ones you find at the usual fishball noodles stalls). I had mine with plain rice while @huatkaliao opted for the version with dry noodles (it’s really tasty as they dress the noodles in a sweet-savoury sauce and pork lard oil).
    As this dialect group’s cuisine is getting increasingly hard to find these days, I reckon it’s worth giving the food here a try.

The place is usually crowded at lunch time and my only complaint is that the place gets very hot and stuffy. I usually prefer to visit during cooler days.

    I hadn’t eaten much Foochow food so I can’t tell how authentic the food is at Seow Choon Hua Restaurant. But judging from the old-school setup and how the owners run the restaurants, it’s hard to doubt the authenticity.

    My grandmother hailed from Fuqing, so I grew up eating chicken cooked in red wine. What SCH served was close to what I had tasted before. In my books, that is the real mark of authenticity.

    This authentic Foo Chow eatery place has been around for more than 50yrs. Located in a old sch coffee shop. I like the traditional dry noodle where the char siew is fresh n not overly coated with the red colouring, noodle cooked to the right texture. The Yenpi (a kind of Foo Chow wanton) is a must order food, skin is made from meat. Their lor mee are kind of bland, very different from the strong flavour dark Xiamen lor mee.

    We visited on a Sunday noon with only a lady waiting in front of us. We packed the 福州传统面 home for lunch, $6 each as we asked for additional toppings. We brought our own containers and the uncle was very nice to help us put the food nicely into them, separating our soup and noodle.

    Overall, we enjoyed our meal. Despite the commute, the noodle was great and tasty. The fishball is a little soft (not very Q) but I am not sure if it is because it was soaked in the soup for awhile.

    Will love to visit again and dine in this time round.

    Not too bad a place for Fuzhou fish balls and fish raviolis. For starts, order the noodles with fishball/ravioli combination. You can taste the handmade quality goodness when you bite and chew on those fish products. Parking can be challenging on weekend as this place is very near the Malay heritage area. Expect to pay about 20 for a family of three pax.

    Famous for their traditional and authentic Fuzhou fish balls and 肉燕. The noodle is cooked nicely with generous portion of fried scallion and anchovies. Soup is flavourful as well. The down side would be the famous Fuzhou fish ball is not the Crunchy type, more on the soft type, which I personally do not like it. All others are good, especially the chilled that mix well with the noodle that give an explosive gastronomy experience.

    Edit (after the move to their new location):

    Such a pity, the fried fish soup is no longer on the menu, however the fried fish slices are still on the menu, however did not order it so unable to give my verdict on it.

    The wings, the standard has dropped a bit. It’s by no means horrible tasting but it is no longer anything to rave about. In all, I probably would not head back for my meal. *Disappointed*

    Original review (was 5 stars):

    Fried fish soup is nice! Fried fish is cooked differently from the majority of the places. Very old school vibe! Fresh fish and flavourful soup without using MSG. Should give this a place a try if you’re looking for fried fish soup that has that nostalgic feeling. Would also highly recommend the old school fried wings!
