No Signboard Seafood Vivo City: Chilli Crab and Cereal Prawn

After a long day at Sentosa we headed back on the cable car for Singapore. Our plan was to take the cable car back to Mt. Faber, take a taxi back to our place in Clarke Quay and then head out to either No Signboard Seafood OR Jumbo Seafood depending on whichever one had a shorter wait (if there was any wait).

We ended up hopping off at Harbour Front and going to No Signboard Seafood at Vivo City.

But before going inside to eat, we couldn’t resist checking out the skypark a little bit first. The iconic rooftop water park. There are several (shallow) pools for people to walk into, swim, and even some with those peddle boats.

This is perfect for when you actually want to hang out outside in the Singapore humidity.

No Signboard Seafood is located on the roof, right by one of the many pools.

After going through the menu, Yunti and I decided to go with a set dinner for 4 people for a total of SG$338.

We were first served with the Seafood platter; consisting of 5 different things. Each item hit the spot for us since we were hungry but honestly, it was forgettable.

I chose to switch out the sharkfin soup with the chicken and conch soup. Technically this wasn’t really equivalent to the value of a sharkfin soup, but I really just didn’t want to eat the sharkfin.

Plus, my mom makes this at home for us all the time. I remember this chicken being too dry. Sorry, Mom spoils us at home with her amazing soup.

I knew we absolutely have to have some Chilli Crab in Singapore. It is (one of) the national dish(es) of Singapore. I wanted to make sure I took my family to a place that would give them the best first impression posible.

The Chilli Crab is not as spicy as it sounds and looks. Its creamy, chili, tomato, egg based based sauce covers the whole crab and more. The crab is then served with either a steamed or deep fried (it’s basically what some places would called a chinese donut) and it’s perfect to dip into the sauce.

And then there is the amazing creamy stuff inside of the head of the crab (or is that the inards?). I used to share this with Dad but he doesn’t eat it anymore cause he says it’s very high in cholesterol. I simply stired everything inside with the Chilli Crab sause! That was good.

This was actually my Dad’s favorite dish of the night. He usually doesn’t like eating oily food so I was surpised that this was his favorite.

When I first head of Cereal Prawn, I would think that it is the sweet cereal we eat for breakfast like corn flakes or cherrios. But can you tell what kind of cereal is used to make cereal prawn?

It’s actually oatmeal! And if you can read Chinese you would also immediately know that it is oatmeal. Each shrimp is fried and then pan fried with the oatmeal. I think Dad really enjoyed this because the oatmeal did an amazing job obsorbing some of the oil. The oatmeal also holds onto a wonderful slightly sweet flavor.

And as one of our most expensive meals in Singapore, we were also celebrating Mom’s birthday. Instead of cake, we made sure we hade noodle. Noodles are usually served for birthdays because they symbolize longevity.

And traditionally we have always had a type of noodle called Yee Mien. This noodle has a unique texture where it is chewy and spongy (according to wiki it’s because the noodles are made with soda water) and obsorbes all of the flavors the noodles are stir fried with. Our noodles here, were simply served Chinese chives and shiitake mushroom.

And for dessert we were each served a bowl of iced longan almond tofu. It was light flavors were very refreshing.

And on our way out, we walked into Vivi City to see a moon cake festival thing.
