Quayside Seafood @ Clarke Quay

Special thanks to Joy and Quayside Seafood for the invite!

Quayside Seafood located by the Singapore River can be a place for consideration this festive lunar new year. The location makes it a top spot amongst tourists but locals seeking a breezy alfresco dinner option would be thrilled to know that the tables all face the river and occasionally get romanced by the fleet of cruises passing by every now and then.

Salted Egg Yam 

A tasty appetizer to kickstart the meal, I loved the crispy taro sticks coated in savoury salted egg.

Cucumber in Thai Chilli Sauce

I found this too heavy on the chilli sauce, otherwise, a refreshing start.

"Prosperous" Pipa Tofu

Think tofu with a bit more bite.

Deep Fried "Prosperous" Fresh Oysters in Cantonese "Bi Fung Tang" style

I cannot and will not resist fresh oysters served raw or deep fried. These were fried to a crisp and served with a copious amount of fried garlic.

"Lou Hei" Yu-Sheng 
Lobster, Tuna, Salmon Roe, Conch, Sea Urchin

This possibly holds the record for most opulent Yusheng ever eaten with the luxurious ingredients that the chefs have so thoughtfully included. Lobster sashimi did not have much of a taste in its slippery transparent state whilst sea urchin got lost in all that tossing.

On a frivolous note, these long chopsticks are great for tossing in large numbers without dirtying yourself.

Baked Rack of Lamb

Trust a Seafood Restaurant to also do very competent non-seafood dishes. These lamb racks were served medium with a bed of taro chips - both were well executed and I suspect I have found a new friend in taro chips.

Baked Turbot Fish with Whole Garlic in Claypot

After all the flavourful heavyweights, this fish item came across as more subdued and plain. Great with white rice and a bowl of soup.

Whole Lobster and Seafood Treasures Pen Cai
Whole lobster, Lala, 10 Head Abalones, Fresh Scallops, Dried Oysters, South African Spikes Sea Cucumber, Hybrid Garoupa Fillet, Alaskan Crab Claws, King Prawns, Hormone Free Whole Chicken, Tender WaWa Vegetables, Whole Shiitake Mushrooms, Taro

The extravagance of CNY did not just stop with the Yusheng, it continued into the pen cai that was certainly made for more than 10. A grand start it was with all the ingredients piled on and the server took a good 10 minutes trying to split 10 portions. I suppose one of this is already good enough for a very filling meal and wastage is likely with all the other tummy busting dishes there are available for CNY.

"Harmonious" Claypot Prawns with Tang Hoon

One merry prawn tang hoon dish, noodles were a tad soft with prawns tossed in. A good alternative to the usual lotus leaf glutinous rice I say.

"Bountiful Treasures" Chilled Lemongrass Jelly

Light and tropical dessert with a very refreshing squirt of lime.


Should you consider a place away from the hustle and bustle of city, Quayside Seafood is your answer!
