A stalwart seafood dining destination since 1983, The Seafood International Market & Restaurant is Singapore’s first “live” seafood shopping and dining concept restaurant. The restaurant has been conferred the World’s First “ASEAN Seafood Restaurant” title by ASEAN Fisheries Federation since 1992, amongst a host of other accolades.
Diners may choose to walk through the spacious marketplace to pick the freshest seafood for their palate or choose from the extensive menu. The restaurant also boasts a wine cellar of more than 150 specially selected wines from all over the world.
A modern contemporary setting housed within full height glass panels, the restaurant offers a lovely view of the sea, surrounding pond and greenery. Al fresco dining options are also available for a tropical and outdoor experience.
hungry and tired (after an afternoon of cycling) we decided to go to the nearest seafood joint available- we were at big splash. we had to make do with alfresco seating as the restaurant was fully booked, but it was ok. sub-standard service from the start - still ok. had a total of 6 dishes - including peking duck that was pre-rolled, kind of takes the fun out of enjoying peking duck. could not really taste the flavor of the duck through the thick omelette and spring onions. steamed soon hock was bland (and expensive for a medium sized fish). seafood youtiao was cut into huge pieces, and tasted like it was made with just fish paste. the only dish we enjoyed was the assorted stir fried veggies (okra, brinjal, celery stir fried with ikan bilis) BUT we found a strand of hair in the dish. service staff also had a tendency to ignore you or not to reply to your requests. all-in-all, we should have had dinner at east coast food centre!
Located at Big Splash, the Seafood International Market and Restaurant is one of the original seafood areas in East Coast over the years and still continues to offer a value for money option especially for those at lunch at $30 per pax for weekdays and $34 during the weekends for the buffet.
With more than 30 items to pick from, one would be spoilt for choice. Not to fear, as having tried every item on the menu, I would give you my recommendations.
Go for the premium items (limited to one per pax), which includes Braised Mini Abalone with Oyster Sauce. I liked that the abalone had a firm bite. Really good quality here.
For the fish, try the Deep Fried Soon Hock which has crispy skin on the outside surrounding its tasty firm meat in a light soya sauce.
The Poached Live Prawns with Chinese wine reeks of freshness. Meanwhile the Sauteed Scallop with Asparagus and the Wok Fried Lobster rounds up the premium items.
Still have room in the stomach, try the Seafood Tom Yum Soup if you need something to spice you up. Another dish that would tingle the spicy lovers it the Wok Fried Top Shell with Spicy Sauce.
For those who want something finer on the palette, there is also the Braised Homemade Spinach Tofu in Oyster Sauce that will melt in the mouth.
In addition to all these, there are also dim sum, chicken and beef options.
Well there you have it, pretty good deal for just over $30.
Go for their ala-carte buffet lunch for it's a really sweet deal!
You can get to eat fresh seafood like lobsters, prawns, scallops, fish maw, soft-shelled crabs, fish. Their dishes are savoury.
The wide array of desserts available are sure to entice families with young children.
However, their dimsum aren't that good, so save your tummy space for the rest of the ala carte dishes.
