House of Seafood – Get “High” with the Stunning Seafood Tower
Founded in April 2008, House of Seafood is a household name and the to-go place for seafood for many Singaporeans. They are famous for their crab dishes but the rest of their seafood dishes are as delicious too. Besides two outlets in Singapore, they have outlets in Cambodia and Malaysia too.
We visited the Punggol Point Branch which is located at the tranquil Punggol Settlement. It is a good place to feast, unwind and chill out with friends and family. The ambience is also romantic in the evening, making this place a popular spot for couples. Enjoy the scrumptious seafood spread before taking a lovely stroll along the promenade.
They have launched a “Beauty” in a Seafood Tower ($228/4pax, $318/6pax, $438/8pax) which consists of 7 layers of seafood. Expect crab, prawn, bamboo clam, clam, mussel, scallop, squid, and vegetables. You can request for the servers to steam the seafood for you, or you can simply refer to the instruction manual and follow the steps.
After a few minutes, you’ll be able to savour the broth which is now infused with the sweetness of seafood. The broth is highly addictive and so tasty!
Look out for the specially designed lemon spray which you can pair with the chewy squids and plump mussels. Our favourite item has got to be the bamboo clams which are topped generously with garlic. Drizzle some dollops of soy sauce on these bamboo clams before devouring them.
House of Seafood has close to twenty sauces for you to mix and match. One of the most popular combinations is Thai Chilli with Chilli Padi, Sambal Chilli and Spring Onions. This is, however, not for the faint-hearted. If you can’t really take spicy food, go for a blend of Lao Gan Ma, Spring Onions, Chicken Chilli and Fried Garlic.
Crab lovers will definitely love the award-winning Black Pepper Crab which features a relatively strong peppery taste. A humongous crab cracker that’s exclusively made for all House of Seafood outlets is provided for you to de-shell your crabs easily and conveniently. We had the medium-sized crabs, which were quite huge, sweet, and really juicy. Though the taste of pepper was strong, we thought that it would have been better if it was even stronger! We just love that satisfying kick!
The Signature Salted Egg Crab surprised our tastebuds. The sauce is done incredibly well. It’s buttery and creamy, yet not too overwhelming. This complements the mildly sweet flesh and piquant roe of the crab, adding an oomph to the dish. The spice is subtle, and easy on the palate. We couldn’t resist finishing up the salted egg gravy even though we’ve already devoured the crabs. Do note that the crabs served at House of Seafood are sold at seasonal prices.
The restaurant also offers set meals, with prices starting at $178++ for 4 persons, to $688++ for 10 persons. Here’s a piece of good news for seafood lovers – there’s a 40% discount for the 8-tier “Beauty” in a Seafood Tower daily at their Upper Serangoon branch, but only from Monday to Friday at their Punggol branch. The promotion is valid for both lunch and dinner. Remember to call and make a reservation to avoid disappointment and long waiting time!
