About Jumbo Seafood Jewel

Jumbo Seafood is a brand familiar to many in Singapore and across Asia. It started from just a humble restaurant in East Coast and has since then evolved, adapted and gained the hearts of many in Singapore. Today, Jumbo Seafood has outlets across Singapore, one of them in Jewel Changi Airport.

Jumbo Seafood prides itself on its Singapore-style seafood dishes that encompass the identity and spirit of Singaporeans. Its award-winning chilli crab is a perfect blend of Malay and Indian spices as well as Chinese fermented bean paste and tomato sauce that resembles the flavour favoured by Westerners.

If you would like to try out a variety of signature dishes without being limited to the dishes in the set meal, you can try ordering from the ala carte menu. It features the Jumbo Signature Black Pepper crab that is perfect for any spice lover with its delightful blend of pepper, sweet butter and other fragrant ingredients to bring out the spice and flavour in this uniquely Singaporean dish.

Its classic signature series which claims to be signature dishes for 30 years include the Scallops Wrapped in Yam Ring which combines the texture of both the scallops and the crispy exterior fried with the Ngoh Hiang sauce.

The Live Red Tilapia Deep Fried with Nonya Sauce is another classic dish that is mildly spicy with a sweet and refreshing burst to it. Its sauce is Nonya inspired and includes raw sugar and milk in the making of this dish.

Jumbo Seafood also serves rice and noodles with its most popular one being the Supreme Seafood Fried Rice. It is made with fresh seafood ingredients and skilfully cooked with the fragrance of a wok hei style dish. This dish is included in most of the set meals so it’s definitely worth a try!
