One of our favourite, comfort food has to be Tzechar. This is part and parcel of our culture, lifestyle. I am sure no Singaporean would refuse Tzechar. I was recently introduced to Fuman Seafood Tzechar @ Tampines West.
They have 5 outlets, previously we went to the Bukit Bakot branch for their fame collagen broth Mookata and now, we visited another shop for Crab and Bee Hoon. The outlet is easily accessible via Downtown line with the nearest station being Tampines West. Since it is a Tzechar place, we will have an impression and expectation of the dinning area.
This round we are at Fuman Seafood Tzechar @ Tampines West for a Crab and Bee Hoon Feast. We tried a total of 4 Bee Hoon. First is the Seafood Bee Hoon. Sweetish, tasted like vegetable broth with seafood went well with the rice noodle.
Next is the Lala Bee Hoon. Similar to the former dish, however this item was lacking of the shellfish fragrance.
Followed by the Cheese Bee Hoon. It’s either you love it or you don’t due to the strong sweetish note of the dish. I am one who didn’t resonate with the dish.
The last Bee Hoon and also the first Crab dish is the XO Crab Bee Hoon Soup. The broth base was flavourful with strong scent of XO alcohol. Strangely, there was a bitter after taste in the broth.
One of their signature crab dish is the Crab In Da Bag Imperial Pot ($49.90/$79.90). 2 crab weighing about 600g to 700g each is the key ensuring the crab meat tender and sweet and yet meaty enough. Numerous prawns, handful of shellfish such as clams and mussels swam in the lightly hot lousiana sauce. Our feedback was the sauce was too starchy.
Next is an extremely interesting Black Gold Crab ($37) comprising of Cheese sauce and sprinkle with oreo crumble covering the surface of the crab. Another dish that you love it or hate it. I belong to the former. The sweetish oreo complemented the savoury savoury cheese sauce. Importantly, this combination complemented the crab.
Lastly is a personal favourite, the Honey Milk Pork Cubes. A must have at Fuman Seafood Tzechar. Honey sweet among savoury. Yet another sweetish dish, so again, either you are for it or against it.
Fuman Seafood Tzechar @ Tampines West offers numerous Bee Hoon and Crab dishes that doesn’t cause too much damage to one’s pocket.
