Red House Seafood 38th Anniversary Dinner Set @ Prinsep Street April 20, 2014

Spicy Seafood Combination (Red House Seafood)

Red House Seafood is probably the oldest seafood restaurant in Singapore.  For those of you who have been dining since its opening will probably know the origin of the restaurant name.  Yes, the original building and premise of the seafood restaurant was painted red.  Bright red lanterns are also displayed outside the East Coast branch (I think the Robertson Quay branch too!) and is also the signature logo of the restaurant.  If you do look close enough, the traditional Chinese lantern is actually two bowls of rice cupped together to form the red lantern.  How more clever can a logo design be right?

This year, Red House Seafood is celebrating its 38th anniversary and will be introducing a host of new dishes, set lunch and two celebratory set dinners at its flagship Prinsep Street outlet.  I was invited to a tasting to the “Modern” Set Dinner and it is so good I am making another booking for a dinner at their flagship branch again before the promotion ends.

Red House Seafood Chilled Spicy WhelksChilled Spicy Whelks ($35)

The first appetiser dish is this chilled spicy whelks that is tossed with a sweet and spicy dressing.  The whelks are rather chewy in texture and there is plenty of onions and mango that enhanced the taste of this salad dish.  It is refreshing and appetising.

Red House Seafood Scottish Bue Lobster Coated with Sweet MayonnaiseScottish Blue Lobster Coated with Sweet Mayonnaise ($148/kg)

The Scottish Blue Lobster is a highly sought after shellfish for its sweet meat.  The lobster is prepared with a subtly sweet mayonnaise.  It is simple in preparation but yet so delicious.

What I like about this dish is that there is a generous portion of the spicy kaffir-laced curry sauce together with a wide variety of seafood in this hot and devilish dish – squid, scallops, Garoupa fish slices and shrimps.  Order some steamed or deep-fried man tou (buns) and mopped up the sauce is the best way to savour the delightful gravy.

Red House Seafood Garlic Steamed Megrim FishGarlic Steamed Megrim($100/kg)

The Megrim is an uncommon flat fish that has a silky texture and delicate taste.  This is departure from the usual Seabass or Garoupa that we are used to savour in seafood restaurant.  The fish is steamed to a perfect aroma with garlic and quality soy sauce to lift the freshness taste of the fish. Do not underestimate this fish it does have a lot of meat to go around for all the diners.

Red House Seafood Scottish Brown Crabs White Pepper SauceScottish Brown Crabs in White Pepper Sauce ($58/kg)

I am super impressed with the white pepper sauce on the Scottish Brown Crabs.  Usually pepper sauce is not my choice when I have crabs because they tend to cover the flavour of the crab.  However, the white pepper sauce has the right balance of taste while not stealing the thunder from the crab.  These Scottish Brown Crabs are also freshly flown in from Scotland so you can be assured of its fresh quality. These Scottish Brown Crabs are firm in texture and very delicately sweet in taste.  This definitely beats the other varieties of crabs I have tasted before.

Red House Seafood Oyster Yuan Yang Hor FunOyster “Yuan Yang” Hor Fun ($20)

This unique “Yuan Yang” Hor Fun is another dish which I like a lot.  What is so “Yuan Yang” about the dish is because it has both normal wok fried hor fun and crispy hor fun enveloped in the omelette.  Topped with a bed of Scottish oysters, this is a deeply comforting dish to end the meal with.

Red House Seafood Durian MochiDurian Mochi

Red House Seafoo Chilled Lime Sherbet with Lemongrass Jelly Chilled Lime Sherbet with Lemongras Jelly ($6.80)

Polish off the meal with its sweet offerings.  I love both the durian mochi (Chinese style) and the chilled lime sherbet with lemongrass jelly.  I particularly like the latter because it of the subtle taste of the lemongrass in the jelly which complemented well with the lime sherbet that is very refreshing.

The dinner set is available from now till 30 June 2014 at the flagship Prinsep Street outlet.  The set dinner menus include a bottle of premium champagne or white wine or two jugs of Tiger Beer.
