Pier Seafood 提头海鲜 @ Xiamen

Many years ago, I was posted to Shanghai. One of my favourite restaurants in Shanghai was a seafood restaurant called Suyou which originated in Xiamen. Years later, I finally got a chance to go to Xiamen and of course, try the seafood there.

Pier Seafood is a small seafood restaurant directly opposite to The Westin Xiamen. I chanced upon it when I was looking for a nearby spot for lunch with some colleagues as we were preparing for a user conference.

Give it a miss, the trotters were really hard and difficult to eat.

The poached sea snails were marinated in a vinegar soy sauce. Very challenging to take out from the shell. Again, give it a miss.

Finally something that was quite nice.

The surf clams were very fresh, so simple sautéed with simple aromatics like ginger and garlic will do.

海蛎豆腐羹 Oysters and Tofu Soup

海蛎豆腐羹 Oysters and Tofu Soup

Fujian-style soup like to add cornstarch to make it thick. Not a big fan.

But there’s quite a fair amount of oysters making the soup tasted like Taiwan oyster rice noodles.

Crispy and nice, but it would be even better if they had used smaller shrimps.

Fresh mud crab done in a popular style from Hong Kong. Been a while since I have been there, so this was a good replacement.
