We ordered a whole steamed chicken and some roasted pork. The chicken was dry and tasteless. The roast pork was very dry and hard. Service was not existent and the place has a nostalgic feel, but it is very dirty and unsanitary. Last but not...More

My favourite steamboat in SGP. I have visited this restaurant since 1980s. Simple steamboat without highly processed meat you get from other restaurants.

The service was bad, the chicken looked like leftovers, and the rice was cold. Just not worth it!

If you're looking for a slice of old Singapore, you could do much worse than going to Yet Con for lunch. Authentic chicken rice and the steamboat soup is a pleasant bonus. Must try the steamed white chicken.
