My cousins and I chose to have lunch here as we wanted to treat our little cousin who is going to enlist in a few days to a nice meal before weeks of BMT. We read raving reviews from a few popular Singaporean bloggers site hence we were all super excited to try out this place. We started off with the Alaskan Cod fish n chips in light batter, and yes, it lived up to its expectations. The batter was crispy and tasty, the cod a little dry but still delicious. The fries that came along were pretty all right too. Sad to say the dishes that followed started to go downhill. The next dish that arrived was the Calamari Frittos. Honestly it wasn't too bad, they came with a really nice tomato sauce. However, we could tell that the squid wasn't exactly the freshest as it is a little soft, lacking the texture of fresh steamed squid, but still within exceptable range, something you could expect from other restaurants as well. Our third dish was Clams and Mussels in beer sauce. Yes, the sauce was flavourful, but the clams were overcooked, dry, and puny, and the mussels tough, and a good portion of the shells were empty. Finally, the highlight of the meal arrived. Sri Lankan crab in honey mustard sauce. It arrived really photogenically. The sauce thick and coating the rather huge crab, and the display was done nicely. Taste wise the sauce was ok, an interesting alternative to the usual chili crab etc. However, it was obvious that the crab was not fresh at all. Sri Lankan crabs are usually known for their succulent flesh. The one that was served to us was soft and mushy, or for the lack of another word, nuah nuah as what Singaporean chinese will say.
Service wise the staff were rather quick and friendly, but I don't think that's enough for any of us to return again.
And I guess the real highlight of our day was going home and having diarrhea. Of course it may not have been caused by the meal we had at FSM, but we all barely ate breakfast at our own homes, and lunch was the only meal we had in common for the day.
