Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora @ RWS

Ocean Restaurant opened in 2013 in conjunction with Resort World Sentosa. It was such an irony that one would open a seafood restaurant in an aquarium. SEA Aquarium in RWS was the world’s largest open tank aquarium. And in the depths of the Open Sea tank was Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora. The concept behind…

Long Beach King @ Stadium Walk

Good food, good company, what one can ask more from life? Brought the family to a seafood dinner when sister came to visit. Nothing to offer at home, so we decided to go out. My little princess that unabashed suggested chilli crab. So what was supposed to be a light and healthy meal became a…

Kani-ya Crab and Teppanyaki @ Hong Kong

Snow Crab was in season and we found a place in CWB that served an all-crab-feast. The crab was served in all style imaginable – raw, steamed, cold, grilled, in Shabu-shabu. All parts of the crab was served without waste.

Kum Gao Kei 金九記 @ HK

Seafood in Hong Kong IMHO is the best in the world. Not only do they have the variety due to the central location among the producers in the regions plus an excellent logistics hub that bring in the delicious morsels from faraway lands, the cooks in Hong Kong have always never fail to excite me…

Bluewater Cafe @ Manly Beach

Seaside cafe at Manly Beach. Because of the built-up around the cafe, it no longer can claimed to be beach facing. More pub grub than seafood or restaurant fare. Good choices of beer though.

Doyle’s Seafood @ Watson Bay

Located on the beautiful Watson Bay and a 20min ferry ride from Circular Quay (F7 to North Shores), there’s this little gem called Doyle’s. Once you get to the place, do not get mixed up with their fish and chips stand and a beach club next to it.

Greenhouse @ Ritz Carlton

One of the better buffet in town that featured all you can eat Boston Lobster (my record was six, but that was a long time ago, this time I only managed one). But could be pricey – nevertheless a worthwhile indulgence once in a blue moon (or after that calories burning workout).

Island Seafood and Oyster Bar @ CWB

Hong Kong, culinary capital of the world, the best place to have oysters other than in France in my humble opinion. Oysters are flown in daily from different parts of the world to feed a huge international crowd. One of my favourite is the Island Seafood and Oyster Bar at Causeway Bay. It has been…

Fremantle Seafood Market @ Clarke Quay

I walked past this place several times without stopping because it looked like a tourist’s trap. After all the notorious stories about seafood restaurants in these tourist spots, I was always avoiding these joints. We were hungry after our weekly swim and we felt like pasta and oysters. This place was offering fresh oysters at…

Aquamarine @ Marina Mandarin

In my old blogsite of Live2Makan, I used to list out some of the best buffets in Singapore. My favourite was the Italian buffer brunch on Sundays at Basilico (Regent). With age, we cannot eat too much (cannot digest), and need to watch the fats and cholesterol intake. Also, little princess cannot eat free anymore…

小張龜山島現撈海產 XiaoZhang Seafood @ Taipei

Taiwan is an island just like Singapore and therefore is blessed with some of the best produce of the sea. Unlike Singapore, the produce are from the regional waters around the island and you get the best of South China Sea, Taiwan Straits and Japan Sea. So you get prawns and fishes from tropical waters…

Oyster Bar at Custom House

The Oyster Bar at Custom House is not exactly my favourite oyster bar in Singapore. In fact there are none for me as they are usually over-priced and offer little choice. However, the Oyster Bar offered a credible list of finest picks of Pacific, French and sometime Brittany oysters with a price to match. Not…
