Originally located in Cantonment Road and Bukit Pasoh, Capital Restaurant is now located at New Bridge Road. A simple Cantonese restaurant that enjoys a loyal following, it is famed for its Shanghai hairy crab and traditional yu sheng. Helmed by the family of the late Cheung Weng Kee, this restaurant takes pride in their heritage. We did ask the staff for a some historical information, and were given a very confident reply of “we’ve been serving our diners for over 50 years!”. Other must-try dishes are chicken wrapped in paper, noodles in soup with conpoy, roasted duck in goose flavour and the crabmeat noodle.
