Aside from its impeccable service, this restaurant is popular with the locals for its abalone and wide-ranging fresh seafood cooked to order in an assortment of flavoursome and delicious ways.
You can’t go wrong with fish, a Chinese seafood restaurant staple. Here, it can be cooked in a whopping 12 different styles, but do try it steamed in the signature Nyonya style. The fish is split in half, then laid on a hotbed awash with Nyonya gravy – a well-balanced blend of tanginess, sourness, sweetness and heat that goes delightfully well with the meat.
Likewise, diners can choose whatever cooking style to their liking for all other marine creatures on offer. Prawns are great Nestum-style – deshelled and deep-fried with generous oatmeal flakes awash over the good-sized prawns.
Save the house speciality for last. The braised abalone in special sauce is fresh as the sea, its texture just nicely so, every bite giving a good mouthfeel without being overly chewy.
A refreshing end to the feast, the double-boiled longan sea coconut is sweet yet cooling with its slices of sea coconut and heaps of longan.
