It’s all about: New Ubin Seafood, local Singapore food

New Ubin Seafood is Zi Char restaurant in Singapore. Zi means cook and Char means fry or stir fry. So Zi Char restaurants usually serve made to order ala-carte dishes at friendly prices. This restaurant started in Pulau Ubin, one of small islands in Singapore then they moved to the mainland but still serving kampong-style seafood.

We had to reserve the table in advance as the restaurant always fully pack with customers. There are variety of dishes inspired by many countries cooked in Singaporean style.

The food was very delicious and there were few recommended dishes on the sign boards around the restaurant. The dish I liked the best was chicken satay or grilled meat on skewers. It tasted amazing with the peanut sauce.

US Black Angus Ribeye Steak and potato wedges came on wooden chopping board. You can have 3 choices of dipping; mustard, ketchup or sea salt.

Another famous dish was Hokkien Mee special, noodles with delicious gravy. We ordered one package home but it was not as nice as we ate at the restaurant because the noodles soaked up all the gravy. Black pepper crab was fresh and black pepper aroma will be on your fingers after you finish the crab. It was not too spicy yet sweet and salty with the special black pepper sauce. The other unique dish was Hong Kong Kai Lan special with crispy herbs on top. We were not sure what was the herbs that sprinkle on top of kai lan but it was so good. Maybe it was secret recipe.
