Easties, rejoice: There is now a New Ubin Village right in your backyard. The tze char trailblazer is located on the ground floor of Space@Tampines, a modern industrial building just across the road from Courts Megastore, Giant Hypermarket Tampines and IKEA Tampines.

The 5,700 sq ft canteen cluster houses three New Ubin concepts and four other tenant stalls. The brand’s tze char eatery, New Ubin Tampines, sees the return of dishes like the classic Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat (S$28), which was a speciality at the Hillview Avenue outlet until its closure in June. And, of course, the signature Ubin Nasi Lemak (S$15).

Beyond tze char, there is the New Ubin Test Kitchen. As an incubator, there are plans for the Test Kitchen to collaborate with a food delivery platform to roll out meals ranging from South Indian to organic Western. Ubin Nasi Lemak will be the first dish to be launched on this new platform, for a trial period of three months.

A third New Ubin concept will be announced in November. Details are scant at the moment, although a spokesperson hinted that it will involve dry-aged meats.

Finally, in keeping with its image as an innovator, diners can scan a table QR code, place their orders, and then pay for their meals using one of four cashless e-payment channels: AliPay, GrabPay, PayNow or WeChatPay.
