Nice but Expensive Seafood Dinner

3 of us went a friend’s condo in the east to watch nadal vs wawrinka autralian open finals on sunday 26.1.2014. 

post match, we decided to go to red house seafood 小红楼for dinner. i had not been to 小红楼 for >10 years. the place was quite well patronised on a sunday evening, but its neighbour jumbo was simply overflowing.

my friend ordered the famous bbq squid, 椒盐salt pepper crayfish, 1 steamed sri lankan crab, steamed razor clams, fried garlic asparagus & mee goreng. the food was better than expected. the price was quite steep. with OCBC card 10% discount (20% for lunch) the bill still came to S$238nett for 4pax w/o drinks (only tea).

the red bbq squid with jelly fish was their house special. like a friend said it was more like cuttlefish (cuttlefish had a cuttlebone & the difference i saw in wet markets being that cuttlefish were squat & flat so looked round & from my experience had a lot more ink for squid-ink pasta, while squid were long & cylindrical). i had never had this before. it was excellent! the seasoning was a bit sweet but i liked it.

the steamed razor clams with tanhoon in garlic sauce was very good as expected. many restaurants now do this very well. so i didn’t think it was better than long beach or jumbo or ah yat, but anyhow it was a very nice dish. i also did a good steamed razor clam in garlic oil myself but of course there was no comparison with what these restaurants produced. 

the crayfish was fresh & sweet. 椒盐 pepper salt was not my preferred preparation as it came with a light batter. i preferred the usual sambal or the teochew style with yellow onions & egg.

the “medium-size” sri lankan crab i estimated about 1.2kg. my friends didn’t want pepper or chilli so we had it steamed with wine. it was quite good, the meat was sweet & quite firm though the crab was not “thiond” meaning firm & filling the shells.

the garlic asparagus was good. the mee goreng was very tasty with good amounts of seafood. my friend picked very nice dishes. the food was good & better than what we anticipated. great tennis get-together & great dinner!

Been there in early Jan 2014 for a birthday celebration. Food was so-so and service was slow.

We decided to give it a try again in early Feb (mainly because we couldn't get a table at Jumbo Seafood). Service was super slow this time, and food quality was worse. The chili crab, kangkong and mee goreng were very disappointing, and many zhi-char stalls can produce much better food than this)! This being CNY period, the prices were exhorbitant. Totally not worth a cent.

We have decided to write off this chain of restaurants.

We visited Red House Seafood this evening because it was the least busy restaurant in the area; We don't mind the standard of food as we wanted a touch-and-go dinner with Salted Egg Crab, Kang Kong, E-Fu noodles & Mee Goring. Waited 40+ minutes at the table when at least three groups of diners who came later were served but not ours. The bespectacled supervisor's service attitude was arrogant and poor. We finally gave-up on waiting and asked for the bill for my glass of half-drank beer. To our surprise, no one attended to us. We complained to the branch manager on the ground floor who told us that there is nothing he can do for us…

Red House Seafood is a disappointment! 

The family had a brilliant time with excellent local food at the East Coast Hawker Centre which the diners were treated with respect and prompt service!

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
