A gaze-away from the Marina Bay Sands, No Signboard Seafood Restaurant used to be one of western Singapore's maiden proponents in the hawker-style dining scene. Now a full-fledged restaurant, they established their own culinary haven at an Esplanade prime spot, and so prime that it has been tagged as a "gustatory Venus trap" because it is the first you notice when you're at the place.
Well-lit interior, large circular tables, replete with fine tapestries, and a platoon of diners are but reminiscent characteristics of a restaurant with Chinese descent. Or perhaps the owners are.
No Signboard Seafood Restaurant has been known as a Singapore mainstream home of chili crab, a kind of dish Kate, one of our hosts, coined as delectably Singapore.
Let's see what else we've got.
Spice-induced fresh Sri Lankan Crab cooked in chili sauce flavored with prawn paste, garlic and many others.
Mantao Bun for the chili crab.
Cereal-encrusted deep-fried crayfish sprinkled with cereal with sweet and salty mix.
We were just a group of four and because of their enormous table, we just occupied 40% of that.
Thank you to Kate and Princess for being such a warm and fun hosts that night. Till next time… there will be next time.
