World Oysters Festival 2015 begins here

Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro holds their very own "World Oyster Festival" , and this is the 3rd year already! Every year, over 20 types of oysters are sourced, procured and airflown from all over the world in for this event. Some will even be flown in 2-3 times a year to ensure freshness and a wide array of choices for you oysters lovers out there! For this year, the Oyster Festival commences from 27 June 2015 to 25 July 2015.

The first platter of Oysters was served - encompassing 7-8 different types of fresh, juicy oysters. The pinkish dip in the middle was a special concoction comprising of raspberries, shallots and vinaigrette. While it has a fabulous flavour, true oysters lovers are encouraged to abstain from using (too much) of it so that we are able to taste the natural flavours of the oysters. We started with NZ Pacifics oysters - light creamy texture with delicate and clean flavour with a sweet finish. I really enjoyed this large and juicy oyster.

Then we tried the Tsarskaya oysters - firm to crunchy texture with flavours of iodine, almond and hazelnut - one of my favorite oysters of the night. It felt almost like chewing on crunchy black fungus when I nibbled on this oyster.

Next, we attacked the Kumamoto oysters - very sweet with a honeydew finish, another absolute palate pleaser.

Besides fresh seafood, Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro also does some pretty fabulous meats and sandwiches as well. Here was a sampler, encompassing the crackliest bread I've ever eaten on any sandwich, thus gaining lots of points instanteously.   On the left, there were the Mashed Egg with Mackerel, Pulled Pork, Spicy Octopus and Smoked Mussels. The mashed egg with mackerel was a favorite of mine, encompassing the fragrance of mashed hard-boiled egg with mackerel's umami taste. I also enjoyed the chewy and smokey hints of the fresh mussels - never thought these delicacies could be encompassed into sandwiches, but I would certainly love that.

Finally, time for desserts! This Cherry Tart was so pretty and fluffy-looking with its mount of fresh cream. The crust was buttery, crunchy and very delectable; but what I loved more were the plump fresh cherries hidden underneath the mount of fresh cream and bursting with sweetness when bitten into. It was the perfect dessert to conclude an evening of seafood with.

If you like ABSOLUTELY BLAND AND TASTELESS FISH & CHIPS, this is your place. Seriously. Its totally like eating a piece of fried moist paper. It's so bad that i'm sitting in the restaurant right now, typing this because my tastebuds are so offended. 
First of all, the crab cakes is mostly made of potatoes and all I could taste is the cumin. Who the hell adds cumin to crab?? or anything seafood for that matter. this dish ought to be shot. It's only acceptable if renamed to cumin cakes. 

Then came the jumbo prawns. Nothing special and really expensive at close to $50. Sashimi were normal. 

All these are are still acceptable since they are not offensive. 

But the fish and chips totally screwed the evening  big time. As mentioned, it's totally devoid of any flavours and taste. Why would any respectable restaurant serve a dish with no flavours? I think white rice has more flavours than what I just put into my mouth. My fish was Atlantic cod. So we thought maybe it's the nature of the fish. But came the fish and chips made from Pike. It's the same case for borh dishes. I'm so angry with myself right now. For ignoring the previous reviews and for even deciding to venture out and try something new. My total bill for 3pax added up to a whopping $192. That's a horrendous figure for a meal that taste so terribly wrong. 

My favorite item today is the small mesclun side salad served with the main dishes. The raspberry vinaigrette was the only thing the palette enjoyed. 

Oh and in the beginning, I asked a server if our main dishes come with side dishes, he has the audacity to tell me that he doesn't know and he did not attempt to find out or answer me. That is really unacceptable.

Eventually, the only decent person in the restaurant, the floor manager, gave us a discount. Honestly he made the experience less of a nightmare. While that soothe my heartache a little, it did nothing for my ruined mood and evening and ruined dinner. I had to endure S***** food in my stomach for the rest of the evening while feeling totally unsatiated. 

The chef ought to be shot. period.
