Fodor's Review

Come to this beautifully restored shophouse for such well-prepared Malaysian/Chinese fare as udang goreng tauyu lada (sautéed prawns with pepper in sweet soy sauce), ayam panggang Blue Ginger (grilled boneless chicken grilled in spiced coconut milk), and ngo heong (rolls of ground pork and prawns seasoned with five spices). Blue Ginger's specialty dessert, a sweet mixture of red beans, pandan (screw-pine)-flavored jelly, and coconut milk, is finished

with puréed durian, perhaps the most polarizing fruit on the planet. You'll either love it or hate it—but you should try it at least once.

I hope you like Sambal!

After nearly 7 years in Singapore, I tried the "famous" Blue Ginger (Tanjong Pagar Rd) for lunch. It will probably be another 7 years until I try it again. The menu was limited, and unless you liked Sambal (which I think smells like old gym socks), you were out of luck. I love spicy hot food and have been in Asia for over 10 years, so it's not the spice that I didn't like. I just found the food to be totally average and not particularly anything

exciting at all.

A must visit in Singapore.

I had the opportunity to eat at the Blue Ginger restaurant in ChinaTown a few years ago, and highly, HIGHLY recommend it- the service staff is warm and smiling, the food is mouthwatering, and the ambience is cozy and soothing. Oh and DO try their Durian "pudding" for dessert- even if you have just a teaspoon.
