I went to Long Beach Main at East Coast Park today for a lunch with my in-laws who are visiting from Italy. Reviews were positive so we were quite sure we would enjoy it.
As my in-laws control their cholesterol, we did not order chili crab, instead, we opted for steamed fish- one sea bass, two red snappers. We asked sauces to be put aside.
What a disgust when we took a first bite. The fish is so TASTELESS. Of course people like it when all they taste is sauce. Try eating plain fish and you would be disgusted. It smelled bad, and there was no taste. It must have been kept in those water tanks for weeks..
I know how fresh sea fish should taste. If it is fresh and has a good quality, all you need to put is just a bit of salt, olive oil and lemon juice and it is a heaven in your mouth. Today I felt c*** in my mouth.
And the bill? SGD 230 for two waters, veggies (sgd 14), two small bowls of rice, peanuts (sgd 2) and three crappy fish... Each snapper was sgd 70.
Waiter just replied that each fish was 700 grams. Seriously? It was so small and the weird thing was that our bill was printed right after we ordered, with our fish not being even fished out yet and put on weight scale...
What a SCAM!
Seriously, AVOID IT!
