Ubin Kitchen adds something special and lesser-spotted that one might not expect at the average Chinese restaurant in Singapore. Their stock in trade is the classics of the Teochew region, which is notably more vegetarian-friendly and seafood-heavy than the rest of China, and at Ubin Kitchen, you can take on a few of them by making an appearance at their location on Joo Chiat Road in the heart of Joo Chiat. We could go on all day about the specialities and the delicacies on offer, but instead the best thing to be done is to go down to Ubin Kitchen and find out for yourself what the fuss is about.
Teochew cuisine is one of the lesser-known of the major Chinese culinary traditions, but for those lucky enough to have tasted it, it isn’t one that is often forgotten. There are far more seafood dishes, particularly whole fish dishes, and a more vegetarian-friendly selection, making Teochew restaurants in Singapore perfect for a large group visit, as there is sure to be something that everyone can enjoy on the menu. Ubin Kitchen is one such restaurant, on Joo Chiat Road in Joo Chiat.
The methods of steaming, braising and poaching are more readily used, and thus the cuisine is seen as healthier, due to the lack of oil used in cooking. At Ubin Kitchen, the house signatures include steamed crab with glutinous rice, braised pork buns known as Kong Bak Pau and a Teochew staple, congee. Pay them a visit at their outlet along Joo Chiat Road in Joo Chiat for a Chinese restaurant – actually, make that a Teochew restaurant – to remember in Singapore.
Great food and service was well balanced. Really enjoyed the pepper crab, yam basket and sweet potato leaves with sambal. I would recommend over other East Coast Sea food restaurants.
Refreshingly friendly attentive service the moment you walk in the door. The food came out in a flash and was delicious. If only we had bigger tummies we would have ordered more!
Great food, affordable prices and fantastic service all without corkage charges if you bring wine. What is there more to ask for good tzechar in air-conditioned comfort? Highly recommended!
