Priced at S$9.90++, it comes with soup of the day, house greens and tea. Do note that it’s only available from 11:30am to 2:30pm. Here’s what I’ve tasted:
⌯ A05 Tagliatelle Pasta, Diablo with Clam, Cherry Tomato & Crab Meat🌶
⌯ Dashi Soup
⌯ Salad

I tend to not eat spicy stuff and usually avoid shellfishes (mollusks) cause of the sea taste. However, I’ve decided to order it anyway cause I LOVE crab. To my pleasant surprise, the clams aren’t salty and complemented beautifully with the crab meat and chilli flakes. A flavourful and deliciously spicy plate of pasta. (Had Linguine pasta instead as Tagliatelle pasta wasn’t available)

Salad was not only pretty but tastes great too. Refreshingly light with semi sour and spicy dressing certainly stimulates my appetite though the spiciness stings my throat a little.

Thanks @ViioGastropub for the invite and warm hospitality.

This was one dish that stood out the most for me during lunch the other day. Everyone makes pork curry, but not much places make their curry like New Ubin. Pork is cured and smoked, before added to the curry, along with mixed vegetables to cook, widening its umami-smoky savory flavor base. Break the eggs and mix them up to emulsify the oil with the curry, to enhance the richness and more cohesive. Just go ahead and get a bowl of rice to pair with that delicious curry!

❤ Hoping the work week TROTs along faster!! 😅
.
Tried 2 of Le Xiao Chu’s signatures:
.
🔹️Signature Pig’s TROTters ($28): Looked promising as the huge pig trotters was perfectly browned from the roast. 😍😍😍 However, I found that it was overly cooked. While I very much enjoyed the crisp exterior, the meat was overly tough & dry - definitely not the moist & tender texture that I was looking forward to. 😔 Things were better for parts where there was more fats as the fats graciously lent some grease to the surrounding meat, making it more succulent. For the chunks of lean meats, I felt like I was eating pork jerky. 🤣
.
THE SAUCE THOUGH was a winner for me. 💕 A harmonious blend of lemongrass, garlic, sugar, vinegar/lime, chilli etc., it was like a Thai sweet chilli sauce concoction. 👏🏻 Extremely refreshing & complementary to the meat! 👍🏻
.
🔹️Fragrant Spicy Fish Head (金香鱼头, $26): Instead of the usual curry fish head, this rendition was a dry one, stir-fried with turmeric, curry leaves, curry powder, garlic, chilli padi etc. While I enjoyed the robust flavours of the seasoning very much 😋😋😋, the fish chunks seemed overcooked (probably deep-fried too long b4 stir-frying). Wished the meat was more tender & moist.
.
So these signatures didn’t leave me impressed. Perhaps one should go for their highly-recommended claypot seafood porridge, or just stick to their normal tze char dishes which are decent too! 😊

Preferred the water chestnut pastry and Glutinous Rice parcel.
_
Commonly found only Cantonese Pastry shop and Dim Sum Restaurants, the Water Chestnut Pastry has a sweet, sticky filling made from the water chestnuts.
_
The savoury Glutinous Rice with the Umami dried shrimps and shiitake mushrooms is a welcome treat as contrast with the sweet water chestnut pastry.
_
Though table is provided for eating in, no plates nor cutleries are available.

New Ubin Seafood never fail to impress:D! The Garlic Baked Crab ($68 - 800g) is super tasty and the fragrant garlic cloves complement the sweetness of the crab meat without overpowering it. The USDA Black Angus ‘Choice’ Rib-Eye ($96 - 600g) is grilled to medium rare perfection and the juicy steak cubes are great with the house-smoked sea salt flakes and fried rice caramelised with beef drippings. We ordered two vegetable dishes - the wok hei infused Sambal Kang Kong ($20 for large) and the super rich Smoked Pork Curry ($29 for large) consisting of smoked pork belly with eggplant, cabbage, lady’s finger, beancurd and fried egg - both dishes are quite spicy, fragrant and best paired with steamed rice for maximum enjoyment😛 Last but not least, we had the Hokkien Mee Special ($30 for large) which features a fragrant bowl of Hokkien Mee stir fried with pork belly, squids, prawns and clams - a must-order item every time we visit:P On a side note, this is my first time visiting the Zhongshan Branch (it’s on the 1st storey of Ramada Hotel) and the restaurant is comfortable and the service is great👍🏻 Great place for a premium zichar treat:)!

Spacious, high ceilings, great coffee. Best place for a cuppa with friends over the weekends. Had the yard wagyu burger, portion was huge and the beef Don wasn't too bad either. But food is a tad pricey.

The crabs were fresh and tasted sweet on its own. Had it in either garlic-based or chilli crab sauce. I’ve enjoyed both ways! With lots of fresh garlic cloves for that smoky fragrance and sweet & spicy chilli crab sauce that I could also dip with deep-fried man tou.
.
Garlic-baked live mud crabs starting from S$48 for 500gm.
Chilli Crab with Deep-Fried Man Tou starting from S$48 for 500gm; S$4 for 3 man tous.

Their Weekday set lunch promotion ($9.90++) is so affordable can! Set lunches are available from 11.30am - 2.30pm.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are what you can choose for your set lunches:
Spinach Tortellini with tomato Coulis, ricotta cream & basil oil
Linguini Carbonara with bacon & onsen egg
Tagliatelle pasta, Diablo with clam, cherry tomato and crab meat ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All set lunches comes with soup of the day and house greens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My fav has to be the carbonara. The Chef 👨🏻‍🍳 said that the Carbonara had teriyaki sauce in it to reduce the gelatness and it really did the trick. Loved the jap fusion of the teriyaki and dried bonito! Good marriage between italian and japanese. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Their desserts are so pretty too! We had the banana split and it comes plated in a nice crescent 🌙 reminiscent of a 🌒.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks to @ariane.le for extending the invite and @viiogastropub for hosting us!
