You no longer need to visit the Lion City to have a taste of the distinctive flavors of Singaporean cuisine, because Tung Lok Seafood has now arrived in Manila!
From the same group that brought Tung Lok Signatures onto Philippine soil last year, Tung Lok Seafood has recently opened its doors just by the bay at S Maison, Conrad Manila.
Tung Lok Seafood has a cozy yet elegant place that pops with wooden accents and cool blue-green tones. It is spacious and has four private rooms that could cater to groups of ten to twenty guests. This, paired with the good food they serve can really make memorable moments for families and friends. After all, the Cantonese words “Tung Lok” translate to “happy together.”
Start up your appetite right with Tung Lok’s Mala Fish Skin— crisp and texture-rich with the standout, delicious flavor of salted egg and a hint of spice. If you’d like something more tamed in flavor, you can also start with their Cherry Tomatoes.
Of course, you can’t miss their lineup of seafood dishes. If you’re a fan of truffles, grab a bite of their Sauteed Prawns with Black Truffle Sauce. Their Deep-fried Garoupa with Green Mango, Sour and Spicy Sauce brings you that satisfying marriage of crisp fried skin and the soft white meat of the Garoupa fish, elevated by their special sauce.
The Signature Chili Crab is the star of the spread, with a sizable crab swimming in a savory chili sauce that will get you grabbing and cracking crab shells in no time. It also comes with some fried mantou that’s soft and goes perfectly with the Chili Crab sauce.
If you seek to sink your teeth into meat and poultry, Tung Lok Seafood can also cater to such cravings. Their Seven Spice Grilled Lamb Shank has its lamb meat already separated from the bone and served alongside some lettuce. If you love soft and savory meat dripping with sauce, their Slow-cooked Beef Brisket with Beancurd is definitely worth the try. Other sumptuous offerings include their Wasabi Mayo Prawns, Lobster Sashimi, Australian Beef Tenderloin, and many more.
If you can handle some heat, then you wouldn’t want to skip Tung Lok Seafood’s Firecracker Chicken, which is made with bite-size fried chicken that packs a punch with its myriad of spices plus its distinct crunch in every bite. It’s no wonder why it is one of Tung Lok Singapore’s iconic dishes.
Another dish that takes the heat up a notch is their Spicy Curry Laksa Noodles, made with rice noodles and classic laksa gravy with seafood and sprouts in the mix. As for their delicious greens, their Two Way Kale is served with both crisp and steamed kale, resulting in a fusion of textures in the mouth while the Sauteed Elephant Shell with String Beans offers a flavorful combination of fresh elephant shell and string beans.
Don’t forget to leave room for dessert, which comes in the form of their silky Taro Paste with Coconut Sauce and some sweetened Rice Rolls with Lotus Paste, offering a soft and sticky exterior covered in coconut shavings and a rich filling.
Tung Lok Seafood in Manila is just one of the latest expansions of the Tung Lok Group which started as a family-owned business in Singapore in the 1980s. Today, the brand has over 30 stores across Singapore, China, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The brand is introduced here by the same group under Mr. Eric Teng which also brought here other international brands including Mango Tree, Mango Tree Cafe, Sen-ryo, and Genki Sushi.
You can now visit Tung Lok Seafood on the ground floor of S Maison, Conrad Manila. You can also check out Tung Lok Signatures at the City of Dreams which opened in August last year. For more updates and information, visit and follow their Facebook page.
