Famously known for its White Pepper Crab, No Signboard Seafood goes far back into the late 1970s. The restaurant first opened as a seafood stall at a hawker centre, selling three crabs per day which were - and are still - made from a well-guarded recipe. Rooting in history and its first foray into the trade, the restaurant goes by its name as the stall never had a signboard back in the day. It would never be too difficult to remember such an eatery with a humble history! Now, the restaurant stands stall at four different locations in Singapore, including The Esplanade Mall.
Apart from its signature crab dish, which also includes the traditional chilli crab, you can also indulge in other seafood specialities such as their crunchy Cereal Prawns, savoury Yang Zhou Fried Rice and the spicy Sambal Kang Kong. Rest assured, No Signboard Seafood serves with the freshest and finest ingredients - you will indeed be in for a feast!
