Jumbo Seafood (Riverside Point)

AsianChineseSeafood

A long-time favorite on the seafood restaurant scene, Jumbo began as a beachfront restaurant at East Coast and now has different restaurants scattered across the island. Nevertheless, the focus is still on preparing good Chinese-style seafood dishes. The black pepper crab and cereal prawns are perennial favorites.

Delicious Chilli crab and cereal prawns!

Adapted review: 

I had a delicious meal at Jumbo Seafood at Riverside. The restaurant's main claim to fame is its Singaporean Chilli Crab,  which was beautifully executed. This delicious dish consisted of a large pot filled the brim with meaty mud crab pieces,swimming in a chilli, tomato and egg sauce. The result is a spicy, sweet, and savoury concoction which is utterly addictive. The meat on the crab was plentiful – especially in the crab claws where you can chew on huge hunks of sweet crab meat.   The cereal prawns were also extremely tasty, and I loved the crispy, sweet flavour of the cereal juxtaposed against the savoury prawns.    The view was also excellent- overall a great meal at Jumbo!

Chili crab!

The best chili crab in singapore.  We got the cereal prawns too and sweet buns.  Was a perfect evening with another couple.

Good dinner but a bit expensive

We had a good dinner with our friends from out of town but be careful with the fresh seafood about the price as we were caught out.

JUMBO Seafood Restaurant @ Riverside Point, Clarke Quay

This is an adapted review from my blog. The full article is available via the following link: http://draftsfromcoffeetable.blogspot.sg/2013/05/jumbo-seafood-restaurant-riverside.html

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Singapore. Even though it is claimed by some to be a hubbub of cuisines, which is not wrong in all sense, most have difficulty to recall what is truly Singaporean, and not some imported taste made local. If you are one of them, look no further than JUMBO, one of the chain of seafood restaurant, and its famed chili crab.

Despite its name, the pot of chili crab is by no means salsa hot, merely a tad spicy to the Malaysian taste bud. For beginners dining in spicy food, this would be a good start. The fragrance wafting out from the pot is positively mouth-watering, with the egg-filled gravy mixed with chili and assorted spices covering the hard shelled crustaceans beckoning for a bite. If you know how to twist the flesh out from its protective casing that is. 

Scallops Wrapped in Yam Ring (荔茸干贝) is one of the recommended dish in JUMBO. It is really worth the price to try this dish. A crunchy exterior allows me to satisfy my love for crunchy food before the chewy scallops sweetness reach my taste buds. Everyone could be grabbing for the last piece while you are still savoring the taste.

The number of desserts in JUMBO's menu is quite high, so there is enough for everyone to try something out from the list. Here are but a few of those colorful ones. Some of the desserts are served warm, so it is best to consult the waiter/waitress before placing the order so as not to be surprised by the served item.

Jumbo Seafood - Riverside

For full review with pics: http://www.weeatsg.com/2013/01/jumbo-seafood-riverwalk.html   Came here one might for a friend's going away party. Got lucky and was sent to a table instantly, rather than the party ahead of us who had to wait 45 mins.   This jumbo seafood restaurant is at Riverwalk, across from Clark Quay and on the water still. This night we got a table outside but still under cover, the rain had just stopped also.   Since we had a few other people in our party, we ordered a bit more food than usual and it turned out to be just enough.   The black pepper crab was the single best item ordered. The crabs overall seemed a bit small compared to Spring Court but not bad still. The chili crab was OK but the sauce was a bit thin and definitely not as good as East Coast or Spring Court.   The fried buns were delicious as always (but are these ever bad? anywhere??), the kang kong tasted the same and the fried rice was good too, nothing especially good though.   An enjoyable meal overall but not the best of anything.
