The famous Sembawang White Bee Hoon 白米粉 is one of those local dishes where people are prepared to travel North to Sembawang from all parts of Singapore just to have a plate of white rice vermicelli fried with seafood. The Original Sembawang White Beehoon has rebranded itself as White Restaurant and their seafood white bee hoon is now more accessible. Besides the restaurant at Jalan Tampang in Sembawang, White Restaurant has several outlets including a new one in Jewel Changi Airport, with another outlet to be opened soon in Suntec City.
Little Island Brewing Company is a restaurant / pub / micro-brewery that is next door to the Tekong Seafood Restaurant at Changi Village which we wrote about a few days ago. These two eateries are so complementary. Little Island Brewing Co is a rustic western food and drinks place. It is a ribs, pizza, burgers and beers kind of place with the best seats outdoors. Tekong Seafood is a traditional seafood air-conditioned restaurant that serves local and Chinese food. We were early for dinner at Tekong that day and could not resist grabbing a drink or two before dinner.
Tekong Seafood Restaurant in Changi Village was once on Tekong Island. It is now on the Singapore mainland, at the north eastern tip of Singapore which is about as close as you can get to Tekong without taking a boat. It is a no-frills Chinese restaurant specialising in seafood, some of which are caught by local fisherman.

Yun Nans Jewel 云海肴, Singapore Changi Airport is the first overseas outlet of Yun Nans restaurant from China. Yun Nans (云海肴) has more than 150 outlets in China and is the largest casual dining restaurant chain from Yunnan. And no prizes for guessing that they specialise in Yunnan cuisine. Among the many new restaurants, we thought that Yun Nans is one of the most interesting restaurants in Jewel Changi.
