The Third Place 三聚点

Friday, 3 July 2015

The working crowd at industrial areas have more dining options, now that Select Group has opened a new food concept, Third Place 三聚点, at MedTech in Jurong. This is in addition to their Third Place outlet at CleanTech. Another one is set to be opened at Tuas 7 soon.

The concept of ‘Third Place’ stems from the idea of places close to one’s daily life. With one’s ‘First Place’ representing the home, and ‘Second Place’ symbolising the workplace, ‘Third Place’ aspires to be the home away from home –the dining cove for interaction amongst colleagues and friends.


Third Place at Medtech is an eating house and cafe in the day, and by night, it transforms into a swanky tapas and zi-char bar at night.

Let's Eat!
Leafy Arcadia ($10)
This Russian King prawn salad was refreshing and really nice. Loved this, and totally a worth the portion for the price!

Beef Me Up ($14)
This roasted beef rib was really tender and well done. Delicious, I had an extra serving of this. (of course, tasting portion lah).

Krab's Ocean Drink ($18)
As cute as its name, this meaty Alaska Crab leg was served with a metallic glass of red wine. Interesting! I did think that the portion was a little small for a crab meat lover, but please hor, it's Alaskan crab leh. So must charge according to price.  


Five Blessing Platter 五福拼盘 ($80)
This platter is HUGE. It's good for a table of 10 to share, and includes prawn and salted egg wrapped with popiah skin strips, jellyfish with sweet & spicy sauce, fried enoki mushrooms seasoned with salt & pepper, mango prawn roll, green papaya salad.

Prawn Ball with Macadamia Nut in Orange Sauce 夏果橙味虾球 ($18 / $27 / $36)
I hoped they would go slightly easier on the orange sauce for this, and it'll be great! Had the prawns with the crunch of the macadania nuts, it was not bad.

Pork Rib with Honey Peach 蜜桃排骨 ($15 / $22 / $30)
Sweet. It was to my liking, with the interesting mix of the peach. First time I'm having honey peach to sweeten pork ribs. Though, really, I felt they could ease up on the sauce a little more.

Stir Fried Assorted Vegetables 田脆八景 ($16 / $22 / $30)
Ah, assorted vegetables. No hoo-ha over this dish, but I did like the crispy sliced lotus roots with it. A must order here if you need hit the limit of your vegetable intake.

Beancurd with Hon-Shimeji Mushroom 松茸菇扒豆腐 ($12 / $18 / $24)
The beancurd is homemade, every day only limited to 30 plates! While stocks last. Tender and flavourful. I really enjoyed this dish, so comforting and smooth. When I visit again, this is definitely gonna be on my order list - 'nuff said.

Signature Salted Egg Cheese Crab 招牌咸蛋芝士蟹 (Seasonal price)
Does anything with salted egg and cheese need to be explained? NO. Sinful and savoury rich in taste, this crab dish was really good. Eating is all about making the calories worth it, and this is one which is worth taking up your daily calories limit for.



Chilli Crab 辣椒螃蟹 (Seasonal Price)
Other than the Salted Egg and Cheese sauce, we also tried the chilli crab and it was really shiok! The sauce was thick and flavourful. Would come back for this.

Nonya-styled steamed Red Grouper 娘惹蒸红斑 (Seasonal Price)
One of my favourite dishes of the night, fish meat was tender, and well mixed with the sourish sauce. Yums! Best eaten with fragrant steamed white rice. Definitely another dish I would order again when I revisit!
