Jumbo is an award winning seafood restaurant that has been in the business for almost 30 years. They set up their first outlet at East Cost Seafood Centre in 1987 and now they have established 6 outlets (5 in Singapore and 1 in Shanghai) also a catering service.
I heard that the restaurants are always busy and it seems to be true (at least in one of the outlets). My family dined at the Dempsey Road outlet and it was packed with lots of people despite it was already 9.00 PM.
1. Chili Crab ($54.40++)
Do you know what it is called when you successfully crack the thick skin of the crab and find plentiful meats inside, Happiness! The crabmeat was so delicate and sweet with a little spark of chili. You can never leave this restaurant without eating this famous chili crab.2. Deep Fried
2. Mini Bun ($0.60++/pcs)
Crispy and beautifully browned. Soak it in the chili crab sauce and enjoy the fluffy and flavorful bun. 1 bun / person is FAR less than enough.
3. Deep Fried Beancurd Special ($10++)
Very crispy on the outside yet soft enough on the inside to melt in my mouth without the need to masticate. The sauce was quite sweet and the beancurd itself was already seasoned well so I did not dip it in the sauce.
4. Fried Rice with Seafood ($36++)
I’ve encountered many fried rice that are wayyyyyyyyy too salty or sweet but this one certainly was not. It had just a precise amount of salt.
5. Mee Goreng ($14)
Be careful, because this one although sweet, it was surprisingly spicy.
6. Prawn with Cereal ($30++)
The prawn was generously breaded with cereal, which made it crunchy and tasty. It even had a heavenly aroma. Surely, one dish that should not be missed.
7. Broccoli with Scallop ($36++)
It’s time to eat some greens to calm down those high cholesterol. This perfectly sautéed broccoli will work its magic. If you are not much of a herbivore, you can still devour the scallops.
They live up to their name. The seafood was so rich in flavor and the staffs were so helpful and polite despite the crowd. I could not find anything to be complaint. Now, I know why Jumbo has been winning loads of awards, they nail it!
