Directions to Jumbo Seafood Restaurant- the Riverside Point
With 25 years of activity and 6 outlets throughout the island, Jumbo Seafood is a safe bet for live seafood fare. When you have a name like Jumbo, you expect your portions to be served accordingly and at Jumbo Seafood restaurants, you won't be disappointed! Especially the crabs; you'll find there the biggest ones, directly air flown from Sri Lanka. The main draw is without any doubt the Jumbo's Chilli crab, this is a spicy-sweet stew like local crab recipe. Not to worry! Even with a spicy hot name like that, the dish is very civilized in term of spiciness. Even for Western standards! Be sure to order some fried 'mantou' or buns. These buns are perfect for you to soak and lap up every last bit of that delicious sauce while your mouth waters over the crab. Forget about etiquette, the best way to enjoy this gastronomic delight is to go all-barbaric and eat with your hands. The springy flesh coupled with the spicy sauce will cause you to overcome your inhibitions and tear the crustaceans apart to extricate every last morsel. To help you stay clean and get the most out of your meal, apron, cracker and pickers are available for use.
Another popular and local way of serving crabs is cooking them with black pepper. Fiery and spicy, you may need to reach for your water to douse the flames. Every last bit of the white succulent flesh, hidden under that shell will eventually make its way to your mouth.
The Fried Cereal Prawns is another must try on the menu. Fried with cereal, the prawns are crunchy and tasty, even the shells can be eaten. The curry leaves and light butter flavour serves to accentuate the natural sweetness of the prawns and together with its pleasing golden colour, it makes an appetizing sight.
For those looking to try something new, there is the Dragon Fruit Lobster Salad with Lumpfish Caviar: this delectable appetizer is light and refreshing. There is also the Steamed Bamboo Clams with Minced Garlic. The garlic eliminates the fishy smell of these shellfishes and creates a nice foil to the taste of the bamboo clams. The sliced chilli adds a light spicy flavour and some nice aesthetics to the dish. Though this dish is rather pricy, you will hardly be disappointed.
Fish is another main draw of the restaurant, from Garoupa to Soon Hock and Codfish, there is something for everyone. You can walk around the aquarium and choose something to your liking and the chefs are happy to cook it in a variety of ways. For fresh fish, it is best enjoyed steamed rather than fried.
If you still have space for more food, the crispy baby squids are highly recommended as well. These tiny squids are deep fried and are crunchy and delightful, not unlike crackers. They are bite sized as well so heap them happily into your mouth and crunch away.
The service staff at Jumbo Seafood Restaurant are polite and responsive. They will be happy to recommend you the signature dishes on the menu and the seasonal catches.
The overall ambience at Jumbo Seafood Restaurant at Riverside Point is quite relaxing and enjoyable. You will tell yourself it is okay to eat more because you will take a stroll along the Singapore River to walk off the extra calories, unless you prefer a romantic ride on one of the boats that cover the stream.
Prices here are quite reasonable with average cost person of just over $50. Just a caveat, many of the 'seasonal price' items like the Bamboo Clams can cost a pretty penny.
Last orders can be placed at least 45 minutes before closing time.
