Long Beach Seafood To Close Kallang Outlet In June
Long Beach Seafood, with over 75 years of history, is among the most famous places for Singaporeans to dine on the delicacies of the sea.
Come June, however, one of its outlets will be shutting for good.
Famous for its bright red signboard and spacious carpark, Long Beach King – located near the Singapore Sports Hub – will close in about 3 months’ time when its lease expires.
Long Beach Kallang outlet will close in Jun 2021
According to Lianhe Zaobao, Long Beach first moved to the location in Kallang in 1985, some 36 years ago.
Some time after, the outlet moved to East Coast after its lease expired.
In 2008, Long Beach King moved back to Kallang, and has been operating there ever since.
However, operations will cease come June when the restaurant shuts for good.
Besides the delicious seafood dishes, long-time customers of the restaurant will certainly miss the huge crimson logo and the spacious carpark outside.
The place was reportedly a popular spot for family gatherings in the 80s and 90s.
