About The Boiler

The Boiler brings Southern American-inspired seafood to Singapore’s Paya Lebar, but with a location in the Novelty Bizcentre at Howard Road, right by Tai Seng MRT station, foodies in Geylang, Hougang and Toa Payoh are just a short trek away. The Boiler’s fresh live seafood, ribs, and burger selection is the result of the food epiphany of a Singaporean banker. Returning to Singapore from LA in 2008, his tastebuds awoken to the possibilities of Cajun cooking, he resolved to bring the flavours of the Louisianian seafood boil to his home city. Though separated by a continent and an ocean, the cuisines are surprisingly compatible – fresh seafood simply prepared in a down-home style with a distinct kick.

More about The Boiler, Singapore

What comes to mind when you think of Louisiana cuisine? Soul. Creole. Cajun. Seafood and spices. It somehow makes sense, then, to find The Boiler serving up Southern-US soul food – or what the Cajun call seafood boil – in Singapore, a culture whose cuisine is strongly defined by seafood and spice. The Boiler can be found at Singapore’s Novelty Bizcentre along Howard Road, and is the passion project of a former banker whose tastebuds could not forget the moment they met Southern American-style cooking in LA. Returning to Singapore, he experimented with backyard crab-cookups, getting feedback from friends and family and to grips with the balance of flavours and ingredients typical of the style, and vowed to bring the taste of the South to south-east Asia.

The result is a colourful menu, enjoyed in surrounds reflecting a subdued, chic Americana. Crab features heavily, often served with a shoal of fresh seafoods in what’s known down south as a bombdiggity bag plus The Boiler’s signature The Works sauce. Taking hold of one of these delicious, rustic swags, it feels like you scored a clutch of briny morsels straight from the Mississippi riverside. The Boiler’s chefs create monthly specials featuring unique and limited-time-only flavours, and there’s also plenty of tex-mex style ribs, burgers and salads for the landlubbers. When you drop into The Boiler at the Novelty Bizcentre along Howard Road, don’t forget to wash it all down with an icy-cold bottle of imported Abita Louisiana craft beer. As The Boiler says, That’s how we roe!

Celebrated my son birthday, a good spread of fresh seafood in a bag. Feel so different when you eat with your hands. Since it was his birthday, we got a complimentary lobster cooked in garlic better. It went so well with a bottle of red wine. The highlight of the night- ms linda lombard presented him with a dessert platter. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality. Definitely, a place for family celebrations. Thank you ms linda, you made his day special...

This is my third visit to The Boiler. The Bombdiggity Bag is awesome with medium the works sauce. It is my birthday month, I have a free boston lobster with garlic butter sauce. The Dungeness crab is delicious that we ordered 1 more crab with the same sauce. I love the Lychee Beerjito. So refreshing. Overall the staffs are friendly and attentive. My family had a wonderful dinner at The Boiler.

The lunch menu looks much comprehensive now. Apart from Boiler's famed seafood bags, their lunch menu also has a selection of reasonably priced 'regular' food. Their Signature Fish and Chips was deep fried to a perfect crisp served with a generous portion of Cajun fries. The Boiler’s Ultimate Burger has a thick beef patty with lettuce, tomato, onion rings and topped with an onion ring and house made bacon jam and the sauce has that that nice smoky sweet BBQ taste.

We've been to cajun kings, and dancing crab. This time round, I ordered their signature bag with the crab @ $145 with a medium spicy sauce. The prawns were fantastic. The right freshness and texture. Well done. The mussels and clams were average and so was the corn. I could do without the sausages. How bout some squid? The crab was fine. Pretty much what you can get at the other 'crab diners'. The servers were polite and prompt but appeared tired and worn out. In comparison, the other 2 diners had chirpy staff who were more attentive. The unexpected 'find' of this place was the music. A medley of slow tunes, rock, new and old... but whoever did the music selection - well done! It worked. I was more impressed with the music selection than the food. Not sure if that is a good thing but my take on this place - go try it sometime and decide if it's for you. The music and the prawns were my favorite.

I had the fish and chips, baby back ribs, and chicken and waffles! Fish was crisp, light, and definitely not over fried as some I've had. Ribs' sauce was really good and not too cloyingly sweet - finger licking good! It was my first time having chicken and waffles and I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. It was a little small but it's a starter so it's expected! I had the lava cake for dessert, and it was baked and had just the right balance of sweetness. The service here is really excellent, and I'm definitely coming back for the dinner menu (Cajun prawns and buttered lobsters, please!)!

Great environment for a crab and lobster feast. We arrived way earlier than our reserved time but were shown to our seats without a complain. Service was good and quick and we waited only 10 mins for the food to arrive. We ordered a lobster, a crab, some fries and a cob of corn. The lobster was fresh and juicy - tasted great. The crab was heavenly. The meat was tender and fresh, the shells were easily removed and I must say that it is the best crab experience I had. Double thumbs up! The only thing that I think could be done better would be to sit couples who wanted some quiet time away from the big groups who are noisy to the max.

Had a really fun experience at The Boiler for Mothers' Day. Excellent service, staff were friendly and patient, explaining the orders and obliging to photos (they had to go clean their hands every time). I recommend skipping the crab and just ordering the large, juicy prawns! The butter-garlic sauce is slightly lacking in flavour, but the spicy sauce was awesome!
