Chinese cuisine is vast and varied, but no matter the region or province, you are guaranteed a delicious and comforting meal. The newly opened Tang Lung restaurant wants to capture that essence — all set against the backdrop of a slick, modern restaurant that pays homage to an era when traditional Chinese opera flourished.
Perched on the breezy Robertson Quay, Tang Lung boasts a wide array of Chinese cuisines from various regions, all with a distinctively modern twist: think luscious Steamed Flower Crabs in Shaoxing Wine, addictively buttery Pineapple Char Siew Tarts and crackling Deep Fried Soon Hock in Superior Soya Sauce.
With an expansive spread of over 60 dishes, Tang Lung is the perfect location for casual business lunches, decadent dim sum high teas, and hearty family dinners alike.
The restaurant’s star dish is undoubtedly the Steamed Flower Crab in Shaoxing Wine. The delicate, luscious meat of the flower crab is given a new dimension with the addition of the restaurant’s special sauce which contains a combination of sweet, fermented rice, spiced Shaoxing wine and soul-warming chicken oil that is made in-house. In this dish, two live flower crabs lie on a bed of fresh vermicelli noodles, which, after absorbing the juices and sauce from the crabs, make for a dish that is near revelatory.
The Steamed Glutinous Rice with Crab Roe might take at least half an hour to reach your table, but it is well worth the wait. The once-ordinary dish of glutinous rice gets a heady do-over at Tang Lung – cubes of Shiitake mushrooms, shredded dried scallops, Chinese ham, and crab roe are mixed into the rice and fried. The two sweet Yellow Roe Crabs and glutinous rice are first steamed separately, and then together for just the right amount of time inside a cheese cloth to impart a distinctive umami taste to the dish. Here is a secret — the best part of the dish is the rice beneath the crabs which soaks up all the juices from the tender crustaceans as it steams.
Zouk Group has recently announced its expansion plans for Five Guys in Singapore and Malaysia. Opening its first-ever Five Guys in the heart of the city, Singapore’s second outlet will be located in NEX, Serangoon, and is targeted to open by early 2021. Building on the success, the first-ever Five Guys outlet in Malaysia will open its doors where Genting Group was founded - Genting Highlands.
Since Five Guys was introduced in the Lion City in December 2019, it has experienced great success and captured the tastebuds of Singaporeans. Building on the popularity and success of its first outlet, Zouk Group is now making the legendary American fast-casual restaurant even more accessible. Conveniently located in a bustling suburban district of the country, and coupled with delivery service, Singaporeans in the north-east region will also be able to enjoy the classic burger from the comfort of their own homes.
Five Guys, with its hallmark red and white colour scheme, is well known for serving up all-time American favourites – it’s fresh-to-order burgers with 15 customisable toppings and hand-cut fries as its claim to fame. A brand built on customer experience, the Five Guys ethos of no freezers, no microwaves and no timers has allowed them to deliver consistent and premium quality food that is made fresh all over the world.
The iconic menu consists of four basic burgers – Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Baconburger and Bacon Cheeseburger – which can then be customised with 15 free toppings, resulting in 250,000 different ways to order a Five Guys burger. Five Guys fries are equally as renowned, using freshly cut potatoes deep-fried to a golden sheen in 100% peanut oil. Also, on the menu are four basic Hot Dogs (also customisable), Sandwiches, and the famous Five Guys Milkshake.

The ShackMeister™ was first created in 2015 for a burger competition in the USA, securing the Judge’s Choice for Best Burger, and eventually appearing on the Shake Shack menu for a limited time that same year.

Exclusive to the new Shack is Matcha Made in Heaven, a strawberry-matcha Concrete for those with a sweet tooth. Rich, creamy vanilla frozen custard is blended with a tart strawberry yuzu jam and buttery shortbread, and topped with premium matcha powder.
As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good®, 5% of sales from the Shack Attack™ concrete at the Shack will continue to go to a charity partner. Shake Shack Suntec City’s selected partner is HealthServe Limited, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing healing and hope to migrant workers in Singapore.
