Experience unique seafood on sampan boat grill at Sampanman in Jewel Changi Airport, now MUIS Halal-Certified

Like a kelong, but Jewel.

Sampanman in Jewel Changi Airport is a seafood restaurant that specializes in serving seafood on a custom-made sampan boat grill.

Started by the same group behind Cajun On Wheels, this unique restaurant pays tribute to Singapore’s fishing village past.

With a huge variety of seafood on the menu, including Sri Lankan crabs, Boston lobsters, flower clams, mussels, prawns, and half-shell scallops, Sampanman offers a one-of-a-kind seafood dining experience.

One of the highlights of the restaurant is the sampan boat grill, which adds a smoky flavour that is hard to replicate. The seafood is grilled to perfection, ensuring that diners get the best flavour out of their meals.

Depending on the type of seafood you want or your budget, the sampan boat varies from the “modest” Shellfish Sampan (S$88), to the XXL Fisherman Sampan (S$238) which features an indulgent spread of Sri Lankan Crabs, Boston Lobsters, and more.

These dishes are perfect for sharing, and they come with a generous serving of seafood.

Another dish that stands out is the Truffle Buttermilk Crab Bee Hoon Soup (from S$48).

The dish is served with bee hoon noodles, which soak up the soup’s flavours and add a delightful texture to the dish.
