Hoongy !

All in the secret sauce...

At a recent dinner, I decided to make an online reservation and check out The Boiler Louisiana Seafood and Beer. Located at Howard Road, this place can be really quiet at night, but once you enter the establishment, it is bustling with life in a bright light setting that brings you back to the streets of Burbon years ago.

As I was with just one dining partner, I went with the Duo Bag ($49), which had generous portions of mussels, prawns, corn on the cob, and clams. The seafood was really fresh, and cooked just right with its juices being retained, but the one thing that stood out was the sauce, which had a strong garlic and tomato base with a slight spice at the end. I recommend going for the "mild" option as it creates the right level of spice without killing the natural fresh seafood after taste.

Paired my dinner with a glass of Kronenboug Blanc. Ah, the right combination for a wonderful evening.

The place is well staffed and one can expect friendly and quick service.

The Boiler – A New, Worthy Seafood Boil Contender

Singapore’s repertoire of American cuisine has been expanding of late. Go-big-or-go-home Southern goodness, in particular, has been wooing local gastronomes faster than you can say “Fried Chicken”. Where chilli gravy on Sri Lankan crabs used to rule, a new wave of seafood boil restaurants like Full of Crab and Crab in Da Bag is widening our definition of what is means to cracker and dig into a crustacean.

Affordable and quality seafood!

The Boiler is located about a 5-minute walk away from Tai Seng MRT, nestled amongst the construction and industrial sites. We thought we were lost while trying to make our way there because it seemed almost impossible to have an eatery in that area. We were actually genuinely surprised when we saw that there were quite a number of people in the restaurant.
 
 Here's the menu for The Boiler, and their promotional price for their lobster at just $49++! Unfortunately, we didn't get this because we are really bad (and lazy) at eating such seafood with shells, like lobsters and crabs! Photo 4-11-14 7 40 25 pm Photo 4-11-14 7 40 38 pm When you are here, you definitely have to go for the bags of seafood, because that's how they roe! Besides, everything just tastes better when you use your hands and that gives you a reason to not use your phone when you're having dinner! Perfect! We went for the Boiler's Duo Bag ($49++), which included prawns, mussels, clams, sausages, corn and buns! It doesn't sound like it's a lot but these are the kind of seafood we love, and we were very, very wrong to think that they didn't sound like a lot. Photo 4-11-14 7 41 48 pmWe went for some sides as well, because like I said, we thought the seafood was not a lot. We ordered a Southern Chicks & Waffles with Maple Syrup ($9.90++) and Sweet Potato Fries ($6.90++). We would have went for the Lobsicle, however there were reviews online saying that they were pretty unimpressive, and hence we went for the waffles instead!
 
 Overall, I was very pleased with my visit to The Boiler! It's indeed quite a fun experience of using our hands "legitly" to have our seafood, just the way I like it. I usually want to use my hands but I'm afraid of being judged and also getting really dirty after that, but the concept at The Boiler changes everything!
 
 Besides, the prices for the food here were quite value for money! They have definitely changed my impression of seafood being expensive food. The seafood were very fresh and the sauces complemented well! The surprising thing was that their other offerings, which were non-seafood related, were also good! I heard their fish and chips are very good as well, so it's a worth a try if you're a fan of that particular dish!
 
 The Boiler would definitely be on the top of my list when I crave for a seafood feast in the future, or when i'm looking for a place for a nice celebration. The ambience, service and food were more than impressive, and I'm glad to be able to celebrate my 22nd birthday dinner there!

Awesome place you couldn't imagine before stepping in

My roommi selected an industry area restaurant for BD. We felt WTH is it place initially. However, we were impressed by its fresh garlic butter lobster n Boiler's Bombdiggity bag which includes Dungeness, prawns, mussels, clams, sausage n corn. This Cajun style is a Southern American-inspired seafood as in boil. It really ignites five senses by bringing back the harmonious spirit of fresh tasty seafood n unassuming dining atmosphere all under one roof. This is one of the great gathering places for those people who're willing pay at high price with high quality food. My roommi said it worths much more than his last company buffet in fullerton hotel.

I'm particular about the freshness of the seafood esp from a seafood restaurant. I must say the seafood here is very fresh. Well cooked too, with the crustaceans tasting juicy and cooked. 

Fried foods, I love fish and chips. Juicy fried fish (not over cooked) 

Try some of their signature drinks, quite nice too :) 

Location might be a little out for central. However if u want a cosy place for gathering or social,  not having to worry abt downtown jam, taste some good food, try this place :) I thought it is worth it.
