We have been wanting to check out Punggol Settlement, but unfortunately, it was really out of the way for someone without a car, and our friends did not really express interest in going 😦 So when Mr L suggested a double date, we readily agreed!
It was… REALLY Far!
The views were also sadly disappointing, partly due to the haze, and partly because the sea view was really, erm, just looking at the construction. Aiyah, I had thought that the views were lovely! Luckily the couple didn’t take my suggestion to have some pre-wedding photo shoot earlier this year.. Haha…
Anyway, after checking out some of the restaurants, we decided on Leong Ji Seafood 量記海鮮豐食館 for dinner.
- 家乡豆腐 Home Recipe Beancurd ($10): A common dish by almost every zhi char stall. This one was silky smooth and yummy.
- 奶皇排骨 Fried Pork Rib with Salted Egg ($12): Not bad, but not outstanding…
- 白米粉 White Beehoon ($6): It seemed like every restaurant is selling their own version of seafood white beehoon! The version here was quite OK, but the ones at Sembawang and Ang Mo Kio were more flavourful. However, the lala are open!! Bonus points since we tend to have more closed up lala at Ang Mo Kio 😛
- 菜圃河粉 Hor Fun with Preserved Turnip ($6): I liked this dish, especially since I am a huge fan of preserved turnip. This was was crispy and fragrant. Hor fun was quite smooth.
- 黄金卷 Golden Roll ($10): This was just alright.
- 炸鱿鱼蕹菜 Deep Fried Kangkong with Cuttle Fish ($12): This was truly the highlight of the meal, and we were not quite expecting a rojak style kang kong. It was very crispy and absolutely delicious!
Drinks were around $2 to $3, and there was no GST or service charge.
