A family-run restaurant, Moi Lum is one of Singapore’s few surviving heritage Chinese restaurants and a gem amongst those who value good quality, home-style Cantonese cooking. Many of us—or at least members of the foodie community—would have eaten or even celebrated a reunion there once before.
They are most widely known for their signature Crispy Fried Chicken and Golden Coin Beancurd—both unmatched in its taste, texture and the culinary mastery required to prepare them.
Unfortunately, their 99-year run has come to an end. On 15 March 2019, the restaurant will officially be closing its doors, meaning to say that if you haven’t yet tried their food, then you really really should.
Founded in the early 1920s, the restaurant has paved the way for Cantonese cooking in Singapore, allowing it to prosper in an otherwise saturated society. Moi Lum brings traditional food but with certain contemporary twists to keep up with rising trends.
Among their repertoire of Cantonese dishes, the one dish that you absolutely must try is their Majestic Roast Chicken. The outer skin is crispy and paper-thin, and the meat is tender, fresh and succulent beyond compare.
15 March 2019, that’s how little time you have left to try one of Singapore’s most iconic heritage restaurants so pick up your phones and start dialling to make a reservation.
