Best Seafood including Black Pepper Crab

Heading to Singapore in May and already going to my favourite restaurant, Jumbo's on East Coast Parkway for Chilli Crab, but looking for good Black Pepper Crab? Also, has anyone been to any of the Longbeach restaurants lately?

Take a look at Red House Seafood, located near Jumbo East Coast as well. They have a better taste in my personal opinion for Seafood compare to Long Beach and Jumbo.

Take a walk around all the seafood restaurants at East Coast Parkway and look for the most crowded restaurant at about peak time in the evening. You may have to wait longer but it is worth the waiting for the best in Chilli Crab or Black Pepper Crab or Fried Beehoon Crab or whatever crabs..

if u want a local feel to the place (east coast seafood center is kind of touristy nowadays and I love the feel of the seabreeze when dining on local seafood) and one of the better black pepper crabs, try :

Eng Seng

hungrygowhere.com/singapore/…

But be warned, this place is HOT and CROWDED (noisy), a few expats here and there but mainly locals who as the reviews had mentioned, if u dont call ahead to "book" your crabs, by the time u show up, there may be none left.

Good luck and enjoy this wonderful dish.

PS. The one thing that is not mentioned in this forum is the amazingly yummy cold crab. The one popular one is Lee Do

but others are :

_de_last_one, I second you on Eng Seng! Most of us know it as Still Road pepper crab. On weekdays, reaching there before 6pm is still safe, can get a table immediately. But the weekend crowd is crazy. My friends had to reach there at 5pm to get the crabs.

Yes, you are right, Kevin...only if Jumbo is the most crowded.

What about "No Signboard" Restaurant at Gluttons Bay?
