Last week Fukuoka Now staff celebrated the new year at the recently opened Singapore Seafood Republic Tenjin Fukuoka – one of our magazine’s newest sponsors. Fresh mud crabs are their specialty and you can choose your crab from large tanks near the kitchen. We ordered the Traditional Set which included nyonya popiah (spring rolls) and nyonya tofu for starters, Singapore hawker-style fried fish and shrimp toast, pork in tamarind sauce, Chinese-style shrimp fried rice and of course, the main dish: braised crab with glass noodles. It’s an ideal place to go with a group, but fine for couples too. And – it’s open for lunch. Show this coupon on your phone – or the ad in Fukuoka Now magazine – and get a free drink (until Feb. 28).
