Kamboat restaurant @Marina Square

J, JA and me went for a simple dinner at Kamboat @Marine Square.
I first went to Kamboat about 8 years back and I've been returning back to the restaurant ever since..
The service is friendly and personel and prices are pretty affordable. Most importantly, the captains do know how to treat their regular customer well ( remembers your name, free dessert, free corkage, free this free that, sibeh ho!)

Kamboat's Rule #1: Customer must be happy. Xiao Long Pao@4SGD: This wasn't the freshest XLP i had. Probably due to the fact that it is dinner time and they'd just resteamed the XLP. Average
SiewMai@4SGD:Big big scallop sitting on top of your royal siew mai. Again, it was not as firm as i would like it to be. Remind ya, no more dimsum at nite!Prawn and Mango@4SGD: This fare much better than the 2 steamed dimsum. Prawn and mango fried with some vermicelli like batter. Crunchy at the outside, juicy in the inside!
Vegetables and 2 eggs@9sgd: A homely food. The broth is clean and flavourful, without being overly salty and heavy. The vegetables are in a nice soft texture, laced with pieces of salted eggs and century eggs. we like this! Comfy food!

Japan Diced Beef with Onions@14sgd: Chunks of succulent beef cubes stirred fried with their special japanese sauce. Slightly on the sweet side but the beef cubes were so tender we easily wiped clean the plates in a matter of minutes. Top grade.
Pork with Preserved Vegetables@9sgd: Again, its a comfort home food. The meat is ultra tender and the vegetables not overly salty. Gooood!
Ee Fu Noodle@12SGD: A very good effort of stir fried eefu noodles from Kamboat. Good amount of wokhei and it is not drenching in oil.. Clean. Yummy to go along with the in house chilli.
Total bill = 72.95SGD for 3.

Free corkage, plus very good service and good food. Do give them a try, and if you are fan of suckling pig, do order one day in advance. Kam Boat makes the meanest suckling pig in Singapore. It is so crispy that you will screammmmmmmmmm!!
