East Ocean Teochew Restaurant


Few months ago, I went to East Ocean Teochew Restaurant for some celebrations. Got a late reservation and few slot left. Our reservation is at 1pm. If you reach there at 1pm or earlier, remember to inform the counter on your arrival so you may have your table earlier. Too bad for us, we have to wait and my father was getting restless without food.

 lots of ppl queueing

People were scatter around the entrance waiting for their turn to be called. All seem like bursting. You really can’t irritate a hungry man.

more expensive item on display

This was at the entrance. Seem like some expensive item but have totally created zero appetite for me.

wide selection of wine

There is an area where all the wines are stored. Not a bad idea to have wine with Dim Sum.

full house

The restaurant is filled with people even though it is near closing. I even heard the counter saying today no more table. It means the customer are rejected. Really have to reserve a seat before heading down.

steam radish cake

This is Steamed Radish with all the good stuff like chinese sausage and dried shrimps. We normally ordered pan fried type so this is somewhat different.

He Ye Rice

This is a must order. Very fragrant and the rice is so tasty.


Nice Egg century with chicken slice porridge.

egg tart

I thought the Egg Tart was quite good. Small little ones, not too much. I also like it that East Ocean serves the dish in a set of 4 for most of the dishes as we had 4 person which is just nice. Everyone gets to try and no need to share.

chee chong fun

Chee Cheong Fun was average


This dish has more sweetness than the savory taste. Not to my liking. But the little spiciness added some point to it.

radish cake

This is good. But I am a person who don’t like Chinese Sausage. Reduce it for me? Almost every dish come with Chinese Sausage…..

white bun

Look like a normal small white bun on the outside

goodness within

It is goodness within. The bright yellow makes me hungry once again.

Even though food was nice, service was slow. After waiting outside, we waited for another round while sitting at our table. My father face was getting darker and darker until the first dish came. Most of the dish came until it stopped somewhere. We waited another 10mins just to wait for 2 items, and was already full by then. The staff help us check twice before it came.  I believe this is just one case and would definitely go again. I am able to tolerate it for another round of good food. The next time round, hope I it won’t happen again. People who are going have to be prepared to wait.
