Singapore Tatler Best of Singapore
LONG BEACH SEAFOOD
The creator of the original Singapore famous black pepper crab, Long Beach Seafood continues to tantalise palates with its wide range of live and exotic seafood as well as delectable cooking styles
An icon of the Singaporean culinary experience, the famous black pepper crab was first created by the chefs at Long Beach Seafood restaurant. While many other renditions of the dish can be found in eateries islandwide today, foodies who prefer the original version insist on heading to the restaurant for their fix of the fiery dish.
Aside from the Singaporean classic, they can feast on a wide selection of other live and exotic seafood from various parts of the world, including Alaskan king crab, geoduck, dungeness crabs, Australian lobster, Australian snow crabs, king shell, abalone conch, tiger sea mantis and many more. Large tanks filled with live catch do more than just decorate the restaurant. Rather, they assure diners that every dish that ends up on their table is made with the freshest catch.
From its humble origins at Bedok Rest House in 1946, Long Beach Seafood has grown to have five outlets islandwide, namely Long Beach Main (which has since moved), Long Beach @ Dempsey, Long Beach UDMC, Long Beach IMM and Long Beach King (Kallang). The newest outlet, Long Beach @ Stevens, will open in January 2018. Step into any of the outlets and you’ll find a bustling ambience with the lively chatter of families, friends, co-workers and tourists. Scale of the business aside, the group’s list of prestigious accolades keeps growing. Among them are Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years and
Singapore Tatler’s Best of Singapore award since 1996.
Freshness has always been a priority for Long Beach Seafood, which is why it uses only live seafood for its dishes. This is one of the main reasons why the business has been successful for over 70 years. Despite its culinary heritage and prominence in the F&B arena, the restaurant continues to push boundaries by introducing new dishes to the menu at its various outlets so customers can enjoy their favourite signature dishes while teasing their palate with something different at every visit.
