Loy Sum Juan Restaurant – Review


This is my second time here since the restaurant moved to Tanjong Pagar. The capacity here is much smaller as compared to their old outlet at Tiong Bahru Plaza and booking is recommended.

The food is still delicious and reasonable priced.

Our Hong Kong Fishhead, served on an oval dish atop small flames was delicious. The Song Fish Head, $18, was a good deal, albeit small for our family of Teochews. My father-in-law commented this fish was very fresh.

We contemplated ordering a Special Roast duck, served wrapped in Beijing style, but Aaron wanted the prawn-paste chicken ($15), which he declared was marinated to perfection. The claypot tofu with seafood ($$16) was also Aaron’s choice.

What Aaron didn’t like was the ginger prawns, which meant I could eat more. I love the combination of the spicy ginger and succulent prawns. At $24 for half a dozen fresh large prawns, it was rather reasonable.

What was disappointing was the selection of vegetable dishes. I wanted their famous stir-fried watercress and it was sold out by lunch time. Kailan was not available as well. In the end,  we settled for stir fried Brocoli with garlic. At $14, I found it a tad expensive and over-cooked.

Service by the local (or Malaysian) staff was friendly and plates were changed after the fish and prawn dishes. Perhaps because we were early, we found the attention a refreshing change from their Tiong Bahru  era.

With the usual tea, tower and peanuts and taxes thrown in, our total dinner cost $116.17 for a family of 6. Quite a good deal for a satisfying meal.
