Uncle Leong Seafood 龍海鲜螃蟹王 @ Toa Payoh Lorong 8

It’s been a while since I last ate with May and Ross and this night, we caught up over a meal. I told them that if we didn’t meet up, a year would be gone, lol… That’s because I was flying off the next day and would return after the New Year.

Longevity Noodles (寿面) is thick wheat noodle that looks like Ee Fu Noodle (伊府面) but taste like Mee Sua (面线).

Longevity Noodles:
The portion was generous. So liberal in fact, that when it was served, Ross asked how we could finish a large size and more food that’s coming along? I remembered ordering  all our dishes to be in small portions. We asked the waitress and she confirmed that this was a small.  Soft to the bite, smooth but not springy (al dente) as is the nature of this type of wheat noodle. Mushrooms, Bok Choy, Nappa Cabbage (the white shreds), carrots and prawns made up the secondary ingredients. We opted out the pork so Ross could enjoy the dish. The gravy had thick silky consistency but watered down towards the end and that’s actually good to know as it means this dish was not heavily starched. We didn’t feel bloated after the meal.

Broccoli with Prawns:
The bright green florets retained its crunchiness and natural sweetness. The sauteed prawns were juicy and had good “bouncy” crisp texture.

Onion and Chilli Padi Omelet:
This was a made-to-order dish. We couldn’t decide if we wanted more prawns or crab to go into our eggs and Egg Fuyong was out as it contains charsiu (pork). In the end, the waitress suggested onions and I asked her to put in some chilli padi. The chef obliged.

Black Pepper Crab:
Give and take about 1kg in size. Ross said it wasn’t peppery enough but I quite enjoyed it. I think I have mentioned that I do not fancy black pepper crabs but this one wasn’t overpowering and had buttery flavour.

May and I scavenged every single bits while Ross enjoyed the noodles and broccoli most. He reasoned the omelet to be ordinarily good and that he preferred a more fiery version of black pepper crab but he was quick to add that Uncle Leong Seafood has never failed him whenever they (May and himself) dine here.

Another happy meal shared with good friends 😀
