Traditional flavors you can’t find easily

As a Singaporean I am brought up and grown to eat local food, but as I often travel quite a fair bit, I had the opportunity to try different cuisines from various countries. However I will still miss the local flavors that I am used to as if it runs in my blood. There are a few established local seafood restaurants that have been around since 20 years ago, one of them is Ubin First Stop. Recalling back to the olden days my parents often brought me to Pulau Ubin for a seafood feast, it was from that time I began to fall for the famous chilli crab. Wanting to find back the old taste, I went over to their newly relocated place at East Coast Seafood Centre. Amazingly the taste was still the same since the day I tried 26 years ago.

The freshest, meatiest, juiciest crab that I know of, the seafood are brought in from local fishermen which explains why it is so fresh. Stir-fried with thick, tangy and savoury sambal chilli sauce that is not too sweet, the succulent flesh is coated evenly well which still taste as good after so many years.

A lobster dish must not lose it’s natural lobster flavour because it is already quite tasteless. Freshly caught and supplied daily, the lobster is tender and juicy. Drizzled with subtle sweet pumpkin gravy that is not too overwhelming, truly one of my favourites here!

Ngoh Hiang

It is not easy to find hand-made Ngoh Hiang in this era due to the tedious preparation, back then it was a family staple in most household. If you are missing your childhood flavor, you can still enjoy it here traditionally. Fried until lightly brown, it is filled with minced meat, prawns, chopped carrots, water chestnuts, spring onions and many more, the various ingredients sum up to a delectable burst of flavour.
