Our History


Bao Gong, was once a struggling fish head beehoon cook trying to perfect the …dish at his sifu (master) Restaurant. At work, his suppliers appeared regularly and showered him with hampers filled with goodies and XO brandy.

One nights after work, Mr Teo add a little brandy to the fish beehoon soup. He never suggested selling it as cost made it prohibitive but his partner, Mr Tan (Ah Tan), at Bao Gong XO Fish Head Beehoon restaurant supported and championed it.

Now, it’s a Singapore makan icon.

In fact, the legend of the dark complexioned Justice Bao appeared on Mr Teo’s face, in the form of a dark blemished patch. Hence his nickname, hence the stall’s name.

Three words describe Bao Gong’s makan…(Simple, Clean and Confident).
