As an island city, Singapore is blessed with the finest seafood range. Coming to the country means getting to try their many unique seafood dishes cooked in traditional and modern ways, including the popular Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, and Cereal Prawns.
But if a trip to the Lion City isn't possible for now, you'd be happy to know that the popular Tung Lok Seafood restaurant has just opened its very first branch in the Philippines.
Tung Lok derived its name from a Cantonese saying which means “happy together."
It has over 30 branches in its home country and has since expanded to China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and most recently, the Philippines at S Maison Conrad Manila along Pasay. The branch has a 92-seat capacity. It also has four private rooms that can cater up to 20 guests each, and two semi-private rooms that can accommodate 10.
The Tung Lok Group had launched Tung Lok Signatures last August 2022 at the nearby City of Dreams, offering some of the brand's finest dishes.
Crowd favorites include the signature chili crab with a side of mantou or fried bun, deep-fried prawns with wasabi mayo sauce, and lobster sashimi.
Aside from seafood, it also offers meat like salt and pepper spareribs, stir-fried black pepper Australian beef tenderloin, seven spice lamb shank, as well as poultry like steamed lotus chicken and crispy roast duck.
Standout appetizers include mala fish skin, cherry tomato, jellyfish salad, and crisp-fried baby squid.
In terms of carbs, Tung Lok has crispy fried egg noodles, fried mee sua, laksa curry noodles, as well as yang chow fried rice in all its wok hei glory.
Greens include braised house made beancurd with mushrooms, stir-fried spinach with garlic, sambal kangkong, and mapo tofu with minced pork.
For desserts, there are hot taro with coconut, rice roll with lotus paste, and chilled mango with sago and pomelo.
