Sembawang White Bee Hoon @ Punggol Settlement
Most of you must have tasted the famous Sembawang White Bee Hoon located at Jalan Tampang. The food is delicious but there is nothing special about the surroundings. If you want tasty Sembawang White Bee Hoon plus a cosy ambient with beautiful sea view, you should visit its branch at the Punggol Settlement.
Just located along the Punggol promenade at the new Punggol Settlement, you will find many newly opened eateries. The restaurant name which sells the famous Sembawang White Bee Hoon is called the “White Restaurant” which must be proudly named after their famous White Bee Hoon. It is located at the ground floor which could be easily located. The restaurant floor area is not too big and could not occupy too many tables. If you want to enjoy the cool sea breeze and sitting under the starry sky at night, there are also tables located outdoor. As the seating is limited, reservation is highly recommended, especially during the weekends.
To begin with, I would recommend to start with some of the White Restaurant’s signature starters. The “Meat and Seafood Roll” (蝦棗) is stuffed with minced prawn and pork and fried to the right crispiness.
Another starter I would recommend is their well marinated Fried Chicken Wings. They are served hot with a wonderful aroma that will definitely whip up your appetite.
All these starters go well with a cool chilled beer. Strangely enough, they only sell “Heineken” and not other beer brands.
The next dish that we ordered is the “chilly prawns with the sticky beans”, which is palatable.
Of course, the main star-dish of the White Restaurant is the Sembawang “White Bee Hoon”. This dish is signatory and is a MUST if you even patronize this restaurant. The dish is equally savory as the original one found in the Sembawang White Bee Hoon Restaurant. In fact, my visitors from other countries (the USA, Korea and Japan) gave high praise for this dish which is unknown to them in their countries. It proves that if a dish or food is good, it crosses geographical and cultural boundaries.
The pepper venison which is served piping hot is very tender and well-liked by my visitors too.
The mackerel fish which is $12 per slice is deep fried and tasty.
We also tasted the sambal Sotong, the Sambal La-la and their famous fried Tou-fu which never disappoint us.
Compared to the original Sembawang White Bee Hoon, this White Restaurant seems served a slightly variety of food that are not found in the other branches. All dishes are very local and very home-made. All of visitors who wanted very local food are surprised at the delicious food and good value of the food.
We paid a reasonable low price of around $180 having 9 different dishes for 7 of us plus the many drinks we have ordered. This is definitely a well worth meal and I will definitely bring more people back to here.
With mouth-watering food and a beautiful cosy atmosphere, I defintely would recommend this branch of Sembawang White Bee Hoon to you. Good to bring your family or friends here for a chill out. After dinner, there are a few shops on the 2nd floor that serves more drinks, coffee and deserts. It will be cool nights out!
