Ponggol Choon Seng Restaurant

Posted by Dawn at Wednesday, November 18, 2009
Now that the students are having their holidays, teachers still have to report back to school for 4 hours from 8am to 12 noon. Its relaxing and quite fun actually. Today, we decided to have lunch together. It was actually a farewell lunch for 2 of my colleagues, Sherly and Alwin.

Went to Ponggol Choon Seng Restaurant for lunch, recommended by one of my colleagues. This restaurant was established in 1956 and was one of the best in the seafood business at the Ponggol End Jetty. They are famous for the chilli crabs and mee goreng.

We ordered a lot of food! It was a 8 course lunch, consisting of fried prawn pancake and ngo hiang



crispy baby squid, which was one of the best I have eaten so far as its not only crispy but very tasty as they added spring onions.


We also had Pipa crispy duck with po piah skin, 2 plates of vegetables (chye sim and brocolli) which was stir fried to perfection. There wasnt any gravy to the vegetables but when you put it in your mouth, it seemed so tasty and fresh! Seemed like a simple, non-complicated dish when you taste it but I dont think it is so easy to create such a dish with immense flavour, without having any sauce.

Then we had their famous mee goreng and chilli crabs


Initially, when I first saw the chilli crabs, I was a little disappointed as the sauce seemed oily and not the usual thick gravy. But then as I ate the crabs, I fell in love with the sweetness of the flesh...the gravy became secondary after that. In fact, the style of cooking, without corn starch in the gravy confirms how skilled and confident the chef is of his dishes.

We also ordered cereal prawns which was huge and succulent! I have to say, I seldom come out from a restaurant, enjoying every single dish that I ordered. Every dish was very enjoyable. I will definitely be back!



If you are interested to go, they are located at 23A-B, TurnHouse Road (Changi Chalets Locality)
