The ever popular Uncle Leong Seafood Restaurant is now situated at the vicinity of Punggol Promenade. It serves delicious Tze Char Style Seafood at affordable prices. Its signature dish is none other than Singaporean’s Favourite, Crabs. Speaking of which, just behind the reception area, there is a display of “ornament crabs” on the open shelf. There is no doubt that some of the ornaments’ designs are pretty interesting though.
When it comes to ordering of food, the waiters are quite patient and will recommend portions and dishes based on the number of people at a table and the customers’ preferences. The staffs at Uncle Leong Seafood Restaurant are quite warm and approachable. Despite peak dinner hours, they are quite fast to respond to my requests. Half way through the food tasting session, the waiter even offers to change the plates and bowls when they are full of bones.
Do you love to eat Seafood? I am sure that a lot of people do but I only love to eat Chicken. Nevertheless, I still find that Uncle Leong Seafood served delectable Seafood Dishes at this Punggol outlet. I will definitely recommend you to try both the Fortune Chicken and the Shimmering Sand Crab Delight. Somehow, I just love the herbal fragrance of the chicken and the unique signature Sauce of the Crab.
Check out the reviews of the various Seafood Dishes that I have tried during the Food Tasting Session:
This is a dish that I will recommend you to try if you love to drink Chinese Herbal Soup. Even while taking photo of the Chicken, I can simply smell the herbal flavor from afar. True enough, the tenderness of the chicken coupled with the mild fragrance of the Chinese Herbs simply make such a wonderful combination. Unlike some of the Herbal Chicken that I have tasted, it is not too oily in texture and does not have a bitter aftertaste. In fact, the Herbal taste is not too strong but it sure compliments the tender flavor of the chicken.
Frankly speaking, this is really the first time that I have ever tasted a Steam Fish Dish which is cooked with Chye Poh. When I first see its name on the Menu, I am expecting it to be quite salty because of the Chye Poh ingredient. Surprisingly, the Chye Poh has a little bit of sweet taste which is not too salty and it does add that distinctive fragrance to enhance the delicate texture of the fish. I am glad that the chef has chosen to use Red Garoupa (红斑) in this dish as it has a light texture which does not smell too fishy when added to the Chye Poh.
