Celebrating Mother's Day 2013 (1 of 3 Parts) : Dinner at Jumbo Seafood Restaurant
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms in the world! How did you celebrate this special day with your loved ones? Mine, was a 2-day affair of good food enjoyment with my family. We started it off with a dinner by the river side at Clarke Quay in Jumbo Seafood Restaurant. It's been years since I last dined in this restaurant and it's good to re-live gastronomical memories from this place known for serving one of the best (if not the best) Chili Crabs in Singapore.
We were seated outside just beside the river, so the ambiance at that night was really nice. I got this beautiful bouquet of flowers from the husband and it adorned the table romantically.
After much careful thought and selection, we opted to try the special set menu for Mother's Day and Father's Day. Since we are a small family, we settled for Set Menu A which consisted of the following:
Everything that's part of the menu was nice. The Braised Pumpkin Broth with Seafood was a star. After tasting the Chili Crab again for the nth time, I would generally conclude that Jumbo Seafood's version is still by far the best, most subtle, simple yet succulent chili crab for me. The overall taste of the sauce is straightforward with less complex profiles and that makes it more appealing and appetizing. Although, I've been hearing mix reviews about this restaurant, personally I would commend it for all that it has to offer. From its food repertoire to its good service and ambiance, it's indeed great to be back!
