Mention 180 Yio Chu Kang and your thoughts might jump to House of Seafood. Started in 2008, this restaurant has garnered plenty of fans willing to queue for their fresh seafood and mouth-watering crab dishes, and has now found a spot at The Punggol Settlement.
It’d be best to go in a group because you won’t want to order just two dishes off the menu. Pan Fried Chicken Cutlet with Special Sauce, Steamed Marble Goby with Soya Sauce, and Sautéed Fresh Hokkaido Scallops with Broccoli are some of the a la carte options you can have, but save some stomach space for their signature crabs. There’re the ever popular options of chilli and black pepper, but for something a little richer, House of Seafood’s salted egg and creamy butter versions are deliciously sinful. What was once at Yio Chu Kang is now at Punggol and the lines are still as long as ever. Who says there aren’t any restaurants in the North worth traveling for? (Dec 2015)
