Secret Dinning and Prawn Fishing Place @ Punggol Tebing Lane
This new setup at Tebing Lane is still a hideout and unknown eating place for most of us. I had driven pass the place a couples of time but did not realize of its existence until I read a report about it recently on the newspaper. So armed with my trusted pocket camera (Lumix TZ-3), I searched for the place again this week. Now, after reading this article, you’ll know the secret hideout too!
One of the main reason why it is a hideout is that it is not visible from the main road. There are no obvious sign that tell you there is a happening place right by the side of the new Punggol estate.
At the heart of the hideout, are the Prawn Fishing Ponds. It reminds me of the other prawn fishing place at Ang Mo Kio. However, here seems neater and cleaner which could be because it is new.
There are BBQ pits that you could immediately cook what you have caught which is rather convenient. I saw the “prize” that one person had caught and the prawns are really big and lively!
What I like most about this place is that it is located just next to the river. The view is fantastic and only a few eateries in Singapore have such nice setting except those along the coastal area and Clarke/River Quay. However, unlike those areas, here is relatively peaceful and close to the nature! There is a nice jogging track along the river which is linking to many parts of the Punggol town. I’m sure be back to check out this track. There are a few nice restaurants at this hideout such as the Xian Seafood Restaurant & Bar, Shin Nichi (新日) Japanese restaurant, Popeyes and Frienzie Bistro & Bar.
Just like most typical Singaporean, I went for the most popular restaurant which has the most patrons. So we ended up eating at the Uncle Leong Seafood Restaurant.
As the name suggests, the restaurant is famous for crabs and seafood. The outdoor seatings will be quite nice with the evening breeze and the sunset view.
We ordered the Chilli crabs ($40 – around $45/kg) , a deep-fried garoupa ($30), craypot toufu and a few fried buns to go with the chilli crabs sauces. Total damage is around $110.
