Kampung Glam / ECP Seafood Center

kg glam

In Malay, the word “Kampung” means “village or settlement” and “Glam” is the name of a particular tree, which grew in abundance in the area in early Singapore. In the beginning, Kampong Glam was a fishing village situated at the mouth of Rochor River. It became more populated and grew into prominence after the Sultan of Singapore, Hussein Mohammed Shah and the Temenggong signed a treaty with the East India Company in 1819. What we see today in Kampong Glam is a variety of rich heritage passed down from generation to generation. Some of these long enduring traditions are in the form of monuments, trades, cultures and practices.

Haji Lane is now revived with many shop houses selling independent fashion mainly street fashion from all over the world. One is definitely able to spend a whole afternoon checking out all the different types of shops here and chill with some ice cream or cup cakes from the multiple cafes along this street.

Ratten baskets and decorations in Arab street too.

ECP
Guests can should never leave Singapore without a stop to have some seafood along the famous UDMC seafood stretch.

seafood
The choice tonight was Long Beach Seafood, the food choices were deep fried prawns with oats, seafood paste with deep fried fritters, sambal kang kong, satay and deep fried crayfish.

crabs
The top 2 must have seafood in Singapore – Black pepper and chilli crabs.

bamboo calms
Highly recommended would be steam bamboo clams, vermicelli with deep fried minced garlic steam with fresh bamboo clams with a dash of light soy sauce. The combination of all these just made every mouth of the tender chewy clam flesh yummy.

Address:
1202 E Coast Pkwy, Singapore 449881
