The Naked Finn – Lobster Roll, Prawn Noodles And Seafood

The Naked Finn

Talk about hidden gems and what do you think of? Somewhere inaccessible, somewhere inconspicuous, or somewhere secretive that is not known to many?

The Naked Finn might just be all of that. This beautiful restaurant in Singapore has been around for a while, and we thought you might want to know they dish out awesome lobster rolls, prawn noodles and other seafood dishes.

Sitting within Gillman Barracks at Alexandra Road, getting there might be a challenge; doesn’t help that they do not have a visible signboard too. But take that drive, look out for a glass unit of sort that is covered with cascading vines, and there you have it—The Naked Finn. Not so naked, after all.

Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro Has a New Lobster Roll on The Menu

Quayside Fish Bar Lobster Roll

With daily fresh imports of wild-caught seafood and fish from different parts of the world, Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro is our go-to place for seafood and late night nibbles. The restaurant has recently introduced Lobster Roll (S$49) on the menu. Its rendition comes with a whole live Boston lobster (600g of meat) in a buttered roll, homemade chili and kaffir lime aioli, and super addictive truffle shoestring fries.

Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro takes its seafood seriously, and boy are we glad that there is a new option when we are craving for lobster rolls in Singapore. From what we’ve heard, they are currently working on other variations like Seafood Roll and Shrimp Roll; we definitely hope to try them soon!

Late Night Dining at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro

Quayside Fish Bar Late Night

While Melody and I don’t have the habit of eating late at night, there are times when we want a nice spot to have supper with friends and hangout till midnight. Most kitchens only operate till 10pm, and more often than not, they only serve a limited menu of finger food and drinks after that. Which is why we are happy to let you in on a little secret.

Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro, one of our go-to places for fresh and good quality seafood, opens till when the owls come out to play, and they have a late night nibbles menu which not only features your usual snacks, but also a pretty comprehensive selection of appetisers and mains.

Regulars at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro will be thrilled to know that the signature Chilli Crab Linguine (S$28) is available on the late night menu. Other supper options include Tiger Beer Battered Halibut (S$26), Tuna Tataki (S$19), and Homemade Pumpkin Gnocchi (S$25). And if you want to do a little guilt-free indulging, there is always the Baby Romaine Lettuce (S$16).

Quayside Fish bar desserts

Feeling peckish and just want a light bite? Go for the White Truffle Scented Shoestrings Fries (S$9) and a Bloody Mary Shooter (S$4) – you are ready to rock and roll all night! Besides, any time is a good time for Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro’s Truffle Fries!

Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro is a great destination for desserts, too. The Homemade Tiramisu (S$14) remains one of the best that we have had in town. And here’s the deal – we tried the White Truffle Flavoured Lava Chocolate Cake (S$12) recently, and we fell head over heels in love with it. We can’t say what exactly, but it is one rendition you must not miss out on. Alternatively, the Black Sesame Cheese Pound Cake (S$14), with chocolate soil, dehydrated lychee, and a scoop of chocolate gelato, is a fine way to end your night.

10 Reasons Why Dancing Crab by TungLok is a Heaven for Seafood Lovers

Dancing Crab

Dancing Crab (www.dancingcrab.com.sg) at The Grandstand is the latest project by the TungLok Group. The whole concept is that you eat directly from the table with your bare hands – of course, you can use utensils or eat from the plates, but we won’t encourage that because it takes the fun away.

It goes without saying that eating at Dancing Crab is a messy affair. Waiters line the tables with a plastic sheet, then bring you your seafood combo and other yummies, and pour them all on the table for you to pig out ala communal style.

Dancing Crab Singapore

What makes Dancing Crab a place we can return to again and again is its varied menu of seafood dishes featuring imports from all over the world. There will always be something to look forward to, whether you are a fan of crabs or you are craving fish. And the best part is its super affordable price tags that we have no complaints about. Yes, not all seafood places charge exorbitantly, and Dancing Crab is one of them. Now, it is legit to eat prawns, lobster rolls, crab cakes and mussels every week!

If you love seafood, and don’t mind getting your hands dirty, Dancing Crab is the place to dine at with your family or a group of friends. Here are 10 reasons why Dancing Crab is a heaven for seafood lovers.

Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant, Carlton Hotel Singapore

Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant

A steward in the local dining scene, Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant at Carlton Hotel Singapore went through a major renovation last year and now sports a new modern interior with matte-finish stone wall and brass metal accents.

Wah Lok is one of the most popular spots in town for dim sum and its refined Cantonese cuisine. It features classic items such as Baked Mini Egg Tart, Steamed Glutinous Rice and Baked Custard Bun. My personal favourite is their Baked Barbecued Pork Buns – it is as good, if not better, than the ones that I have had in Hong Kong.

The talented dim sum chef Yiu Cheuk Yin at Wah Lok has also created several new items that you should look out for. Deep-fried Crabmeat & Scallop Balls with Chilli Sauce, Deep-fried Rolls with Seafood & Sea Cucumber, and Steamed Vegetarian Beancurd Skin Rolls are some of the new dim sum that will make you return to Wah Lok again and again.

Chilled Foie Gras and whole AbaloneChilled Foie Gras & Whole Abalone

Besides dim sum, what I really want to share with you is Wah Lok’s offering of signature dishes with an emphasis on premium, fresh, live seafood like Australian King Crab, Snow Crab, Alaskan Crab, Live Abalone, and Bird’s Nest with Crab Claw in Clear Superior Soup.

Be it a formal business luncheon with associates, or a family gathering for yum cha on the weekends, Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant at Carlton Hotel is the to-go place. The dining space is modern and stylish, and the food is always prepared to a very high standard and consistently good. It is a place where you know you will always have an excellent meal.

Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro Singapore

Quayside Fish Bar

There has always been a debate over the difference between farm-bred and wild-caught fishes. The former, while much more readily available and affordable, has a higher chance of being contaminated, hence more prone to getting disease. The latter live in their natural habitats out in the open waters, and is hence a lot healthier. We can go on and on about the benefits of wild-caught fishes, but we will leave that for another day. While I am always happy to order wild-caught fishes when I dine out, restaurants in Singapore hardly place an emphasis on it and hence stick to using conventional farm-bred ones.

Quayside Fish Bar Seafood Platter

This is why I am so happy to introduce Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro as it is really a heaven for seafood lovers. Located at the charming Quayside Isle at the luxurious Sentosa Cove enclave, Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro has daily fresh imports of wild-caught seafood and fish from different parts of the world.

Appetising starters include Hokkaido Scallops Crudo (S$19), freshly shucked oysters, and the beautifully-plated Torched Holloumi Cheese (S$18). The pastas (S$28) are too delicious to a fault, and nobody can resist the Baked Half Boston Lobster (S$54). But the highlight of the menu – and something that you must order – is the qsfb’s Fresh Seafood Platter (S$150).
