Singapore may not have the best amusement parks or the nicest beaches but one thing that Singapore definitely has is the best food. Being a small island surround by water, it’s no surprise that us Singaporeans can cook up some mean seafood dishes.
Whether you’re looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or you’re looking for something a bit more casual and laid back, the East side has it all.
(Be warned, the following post is not for the hungry)
1. Long Beach
Image credit: may be the best seafood restaurant in the island. Long Beach Seafood was first established way back in the 40’s. Back then it was patronized by the British Army where it grew it popularity attracting local Singaporeans.
Fun fact: Long Beach Seafood was the very first restaurant to cook up Singapore’s favourite black pepper crab, and it remains the restaurant’s best seller.
70 years and 5 branches later, Long Beach Seafood can boast several awards and accolades throughout its establishment.
The selling point of this popular seafood restaurant is its Outlet Specialities, dishes that are only available at a specific branch. Look out for the Portuguese Style Live Lobster and Thai Emperor Prawns only available at its main East Coast branch .

2. Jumbo Seafood
Image credit: is a Singaporean household name, established in 1987 at the East Coast Seafood Center by the Ang family (which is now their flagship restaurant) the restaurant had a rocky start in its early years. However, after the Ang family took more a more active role in running the restaurant, Long Beach soon gained a loyal following.
