Serving seafood since 1946, this well-established Chinese restaurant has branched out from its original beachfront location at Bedok to a number of restaurants. The black pepper crab and chilli crab are evergreen favourites, and the restaurant even offers de-shelling services for its crab dishes.
I first went to Long Beach before it moved to its current location
jumbo on the East Coast next to the ocean or Long beach - indoors next to the Fusball pitches?
it is difficult to decide.
The chilli crab is better at Jumbo, the yam scallops are yummy and the steamed fish are perfect.
Yest the Black Pepper crab is better at Long Beach, the staff are friendlier and the welcome is less of a rugby scrum.
Even my my wife and I disagree - so we go to both.
I went to Long Beach Main at East Coast Park today for a lunch with my in-laws who are visiting from Italy. Reviews were positive so we were quite sure we would enjoy it.
As my in-laws control their cholesterol, we did not order chili crab, instead, we opted for steamed fish- one sea bass, two red snappers. We asked sauces to be put aside.
What a disgust when we took a first bite. The fish is so TASTELESS. Of course people like it when all they taste is sauce. Try eating plain fish and you would be disgusted. It smelled bad, and there was no taste. It must have been kept in those water tanks for weeks..
I know how fresh sea fish should taste. If it is fresh and has a good quality, all you need to put is just a bit of salt, olive oil and lemon juice and it is a heaven in your mouth. Today I felt c*** in my mouth.
And the bill? SGD 230 for two waters, veggies (sgd 14), two small bowls of rice, peanuts (sgd 2) and three crappy fish... Each snapper was sgd 70.
Waiter just replied that each fish was 700 grams. Seriously? It was so small and the weird thing was that our bill was printed right after we ordered, with our fish not being even fished out yet and put on weight scale...
What a SCAM! Seriously, AVOID IT!
