Simple Eats: No Signboard Seafood Restaurant, Singapore

When in Singapore, do what the locals do – Eat, Eat and Eat. Where did my diet go? It went out the door the moment we stepped into the island of Singapore.

One of Singapore’s well-known dishes is its Chili Crab. And of course, we had to try what people have been considering to be the best Chili Crab in the island – No Signboard Seafood Restaurant. We took the MRT going to their main branch located in Geylang road. The ride cost is SGD1.80 each.
Was a bit surprised to find an outdoor setup. Since we didn’t have reservations, we were escorted to another side of the restaurant.

Chili Crab: SGD50/kg
We were served a pretty big crab with lots of meat in it. The sauce was on the spicy and salty side. It was so-so for me. Actually, I preferred the one in Thailand, Somboon. Will try another restaurant known for their chili crab tomorrow.

No Signboard Beancurd: SGD20
Reminded me of the lomi sauce. Good combination of beancurd, mushrooms and vegetables.


Salted Egg Shrimps: SGD25
This was a nice dish. Loved the salted egg sauce.


All in all, the food we ordered was so-so. Hoping to try a better chili crab tomorrow. I personally prefer one that’s a bit on the sweet and spicy side.

We took a taxi going back to Orchard. The ride costed us SGD10.

Simple Eats: Tao Yuan

Today’s new destination for Warren is Resort’s World. I haven’t been around the area as well so it was a discovery for me. The ground floor has your luxury brands – Ferragamo, Lacoste, Rolex, Lucerne, Ascot Chang among others. The Mall had other brands as well – Mango, Hush Puppies, Giordano, and more.

Interestingly, there were a lot of food places to try – Mr. Kurusawa, Crisostomo, Parmigiano, Red Crab and Tao Yuan, just to name a few. Since I was craving for crabs, we decided to get a table at Tao Yuan. Unfortunately, since we didn’t reserve beforehand, we were seated outside.

I love the food served. We decided to try something new – laksa. It tasted really good with the squid balls, laksa soup and the big oysters in it. Of course the chili crab tasted great. Armed with mantou bread, I wasn’t sure whether to dip it in the condensed milk or in the chili crab sauce. As usual, the Hainanese Chicken was cooked to perfection. Total bill is Php2533.00. Expensive but it was definitely yummy! 🙂
