Introducing New Ubin Seafood’s latest creation - @ubinexpress !

Featured here are the following items:
-Authentic Heart Attack Fried Rice with House Smoked Pork ($8.50): This is a highly recommend main menu item! The dark cloured fried rice is cooked with beef fat and drippings! Every grain is caramelised to perfection! Love the wokhey smoky flavours! The smoked pork was very tasty delicious too! A special ingredient that you rarely find elsewhere for fried rice!

-Boss Bee Hoon with Seasoned Prawns ($8.30): This was SO SO GOOD! The beehoon had lots of wok hey flavours! There is chilli padi, fish cake and egg in the beehoon too! You can also request for more sambal chilli sauce to further spicy up the shiokness level!

-Hei Chor ($10): Who else loves Hei Chor! This is my must order item at every “tze char style” dining. This hei chor contains minced pork with juicy water chestnut. Goes well with the sweet dipping sauce!

Ubin Express may not ring a bell to some, but New Ubin Seafood is a pretty established name at this current juncture within the F&B scene in Singapore. Perhaps best known for serving up tze char dishes that bears a unique identity to their own, Ubin Express is New Ubin Seafood’s fast dining concept that showcases the very best of what New Ubin Seafood has to offer. Taking over the former premises of Lam’s Garden at City Gate (they have since moved to BGAIN Eating House at ARC380), Ubin Express is fairly simply decorated; the interior being really functional and basic. Offering only a small selection of items off New Ubin Seafood’s menu, Ubin Express only serves up limited starters and mains such as the Luncheon Meat Fries, Squid Paste YouTiao, as well as their signature Authentic Heart Attack Fried Rice and the. Boss Bee Hoon; just to name a few. Beverage options at Ubin Express is pretty much limited to various varieties of canned drinks.

Have heard quite a fair bit of New Ubin Seafood’s Authentic Heart Attack Fried Rice and it was something which we could not see ourselves giving a miss here; patrons have an option to actually go for meat options such as grilled chicken, house smoked pork or seasoned prawns at a top-up — we opted for the house smoked pork for our order. Coming in the same dark, lacquered aesthetic that we have seen in photos from those who have had it at New Ubin Seafood, the rendition at Ubin Express does look the part. We might not be able to comment on how closely it resembles the same that is served in New Ubin Seafood since we have yet to visit any of their tzechar restaurants — that being said, the Authentic Heart Attack Fried Rice delivers that artery-choking experience it promises in the namesake; the broken rice grains comes all glistening here and is especially moist and loose, whilst being fried with black sauce for that savoury note. There is also a noticeable hint of wok-hei with the fried rice — that smokiness being prominent throughout the entire portion; a bonus factor to the already sinful affair going on. Those who wishes to up their game on the Authentic Heart Attack Fried Rice shouldn’t give the addition of house smoked pork a miss — basically strips of thick-cut bacon which is fried together with the rice, it provides not only a juicy, meaty bite to the fried rice, but also that familiar saltish note of cured meat that really brings out more flavour for the dish.

Despite New Ubin Seafood’s popularity as seen on social media, we were pretty surprised by Ubin Express was empty when we made our visit — our table being the only dine-in patrons throughout the entire visit on a weekend lunch service. Perhaps it could be due to them being a new opening where there had not been much publicity, though we were also initially hoping for a menu with more variety that had lesser a focus on fried dishes especially for the sides that they are offering despite being an “express” outlet — something perhaps more consistent to the New Ubin Seafood experience without having to serve the whole menu available there. Food is however executed pretty well; we were pretty satisfied with the Luncheon Meat Fries and Squid Paste YouTiao that we have ordered. Prices are also fairly reasonable; with the exception of the sides (meant to be shared) priced at $10, the priciest mains (i.e. rice and noodles) are at $9 — pretty pocket-friendly especially when shared between a number of pax. Wouldn’t really recommend coming down to Ubin Express to experience what New Ubin Seafood has to offer considering the scaled-down menu here, but definitely a great spot to try some of the iconic dishes at New Ubin Seafood that are also available here, or get that craving for their Authentic Heart Attack Fried Rice solved!
