Fresh Thai Coconut
Since House Of Seafood 螃蟹之家 still pride itself on its fresh seafood, and popular dishes like chilli crab, black pepper crab, stir-fried prawns and steamed garoupa. My friend kept telling my mother & me that the food at House of Seafood is nice and she is treating us to Dinner last evening. Therefore, I decided to use Chope mobile app for reservation our dinner last evening 6.30 p.m. after watching Friend Request at Golden Village, Yishun outlet.
We took a while to find the restaurant which is located on the third floor. The directional signs put up by the restaurant along the way are useful. The captain gave us the menu of a la carte seafood dishes. My friend felt disappointed because they had no promotion going on at this outlet after checking with the captain.
Crabs have always been one of my favourite foods around Singapore. The meat of the crabs comes off very easily which means they are cooked to perfection! Great job on that!
One of my worst dining experience of the year must be the red garoupa in this restaurant because the fish is too big for my mother and my friend to eat and the fish fillet were not very fresh. Teochew style steamed 潮州式蒸 garoupa supposed to have red skin, but they served it with black skin. The service crew did not serve 2 bowls of white rice upon finishing all the dishes half-way. We have to remind them in serving.
Paid $242.10 for 3 adults for microwaved food was very expensive, so this restaurant deserves a negative star rating because my mother and me saw the kitchen crew poured the cooked rice into big container manually by removing all rice from a big piece of cloth. Disgusting!
Conclusion: Over-rated seafood as their award winning crab restaurant with all the photographs of famous people on their surrounding walls as compared with Jumbo and Long Beach. When the crab was served, we were shocked at how small the crab was because it's seemed to be 700g, but charged us 1.3kg on their Receipt.
Lastly, I shall consider again going to their other outlets to dine and will never go back to this outlet due to the taste abnormal to me except for their sambal chilli sauce, which served by using big spoon.
