New Ubin Seafood – Kampong Style Zhi Char Restaurant Moving Out Of Sin Ming To Hillview
Though New Ubin Seafood has its beginnings from a restaurant Pulau Ubin’s north shore, they really made its name when it moved to the rustic Sin Ming area, where the décor is still maintained kampong-style.
It is one of my Top 10 Must Try Zi Char Places In Singapore.
New Ubin Seafood has also been recently included into the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide 2016.
Not the typical zi char dishes, you would find US Ribeye, Chocolate Alexander, Fish Roe Masala, BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Satay Foie Gras, and BBQ Pork Collar among the top selling dishes.
How I look out for dishes to order is the floor-to-ceiling chalkboard where they would indicate their most popular dishes – Heart Attack Fried Rice, Chilli Crab, Crispy Pork Knuckles, Boss Style Bee Hoon, Great Shovel Nose Ray, and Hei Chor.
Some customers call this the ‘ang moh’ zi char restaurant, and order the US Black Angus Ribeye Steak ($12 for 100 grams), served together with caramelised onions, Idaho potato wedges, sea salt flakes, and my favourite… fried rice cooked with beef drippings.
Part of my personal must-order is their version of Hokkien Mee, cooked in rich prawn stock so that the entire plate would become wet and gooey, almost sticky, also full-on in wok-hei.
And so the announcement…
New Ubin Seafood will MOVE OUT of its current venue at Sing Ming Road.
It’s last day of operation is confirmed to be 13th November (Sunday). The move is due to the redevelopment of the Sin Ming Industrial Estate.
The NEW New Ubin Seafood venue will be at Lam Soon Industrial Building No. 63 Hillview Avenue, which is anticipated to start operations on 15th or 16th November (subject to change).
The new location that can seat about 280 people is said to maintain the old kopitiam style mood and furniture, and will offer lunch time sets.
While I cannot comment on the new location yet, I will kind of miss the old-school kampong feeling, which you really do not get any more in Singapore. Oh well.
