Nestled along the picturesque river at Robertson Quay, Long Beach Seafood's latest location is a sight to behold.

As you approach the restaurant, you can't help but be captivated by the vibrant alfresco dining area. The inviting ambiance and the gentle rustling of the river set the stage for an unforgettable culinary adventure.

Step inside, and you'll find yourself face-to-face with tanks filled with live seafood. Long Beach Seafood takes great pride in its ability to serve premium live seafood, making sure that every bite you take is bursting with freshness and flavour.

The menu at Long Beach Seafood is a seafood lover's dream come true. From plump and succulent oysters, to lobsters fit for royalty, and razor clams that tingle your taste buds, every dish is a masterpiece.

But it's not just the seafood that steals the show at Long Beach Seafood. They offer a yum cha menu, featuring all your favourite dim sums. So whether you're in the mood for a hearty feast or a light snack, Long Beach Seafood has you covered.

The star of the show is the legendary black pepper crab. Since day one, Long Beach Seafood has made a name for itself with this signature dish.

During our visit, I was determined to try the Original Best Black Pepper Crab, and my local friends were only all too happy to prove how much tastier it is than the famous Singapore chilli crab.

Contrary to popular belief, the Singapore chilli crab isn't the locals' top choice. Instead, the real connoisseurs of crab opt for the robust flavours of the black pepper crab.

However, to our dismay, black pepper crabs had sold out for the day, which was odd considering black pepper is available everywhere. But fear not, as the culinary wizards at Long Beach Seafood had a delightful surprise in store for us. We decided to try their mud crabs with their classic white pepper sauce and the house-recommended jade sauce.

The white pepper crab turned out to be a revelation; the white peppery sauce was both delicate and rich at the same time; it coated the sweet crab meat and shell, and had me licking my fingers. It's no wonder that the locals prefer the pepper sauce over the sweeter alternative of the Singapore chilli crab.

If you're not up for licking your fingers, they provide disposable food-grade gloves for you to handle the crab with.

Let me tell you about the mud crab with jade sauce—an unexpected gem.

As the dish arrived at our table, the aroma of curry leaf and butter wafted through the air, instantly awakening our taste buds. The velvety texture of the sauce coated our palates; I could have devoured bowls of steamed rice with this sauce alone!

We may have ordered extra sauce for dipping and coated everything else we ordered in this delectable sauce.

To complement our seafood feast, we couldn't resist trying some additional delights. Not to mention, one of us at the table was slightly hungover and that calls for fried food and more beer to cure.

The Fried You-Tiao with minced prawns and fresh crab meat was a genius rendition of the classic sesame prawn toast. Paired with jugs of ice-cold beer, it was a match made in culinary heaven.

The deep-fried cuttlefish proved to be another great pairing for beers and hangovers.

The crunchy texture of the cuttlefish, combined with the spring onion and chilli mixture, made for a moreish experience; this dish was one that you couldn't stop eating.

To end our culinary journey on a high note, we indulged in the Homemade 'Golden Brick' Beancurd in a special sauce.

Topped with pork floss and radish, this fried tofu dish was homely and traditional. The tofu was freshly fried and the toppings added a crunchy texture; another great dish.
