Fishy Business – 7 Special Seafood Feasts With Deliveroo
Enjoying seafood is always a good idea. They are sweet and decadent, and make for a hearty feast that will have everyone at the dinner table feeling full and satisfied. But if you’ve had a seafood feast outside, you’ll know what we mean when we say that there’s no elegant way of going through a meal of seafood. Your fingers get drenched in sauces and your hands act as cutlery, and you do that all with a table napkin (or disposable bib if you’re lucky) hanging by the collar of your shirt. It’s all a hugely unglamorous affair, to say the least.
Having a seafood meal is clearly more convenient and enjoyable when enjoyed in the comforts of your own home. After all, your family and friends won’t judge you when you’re reaching for that crab claw with sauce dripping all over your mouth. Deliveroo’s ‘Get Trout and About’ is a limited time offer (20 March to 2 April) to help you savour the best of seafood meals. With exclusive discounts and special set meals at seven seafood restaurants., you can now sample the freshness of the sea without having to step out of your home.
Deliveroo orders can be made through www.deliveroo.com.sg or the Deliveroo app, available on iPhone and Android.
1. Greenwood Fish Bistro
This seafood restaurant has been serving up freshly shucked oysters, live Boston lobsters and other delectable freshwater catch for 11 years. Opt for the sashimi platter ($42 for 30 slices; $65 for 50 slices) to enjoy a premium selection of salmon, yellowfin tuna, swordfish belly, kingfish and snapper. Also available is their smoked platter ($59; serves two to four pax) with 300g of hot smoked mackerel and cold smoked salmon, 200g of smoked mussels, hot smoked ocean trout, smoked mature cheddar and homemade smoked bacon, and sides of olives, sweet onions and crisp bread.
2. Fish & Co.
It’s never just fish and chips here. Take a tour around the world with their selection of internationally inspired fish and chips – from the New York fish & chips stuffed with parmesan cheese and lemon butter sauce, to the Bombay fish & chips with a herb and spice infused batter and served with a curry mayonnaise dip.
Or simply go with their best fish & chips for a no-frills option. Can’t decide? Get the fish & chips bundle ($32.10), which comes with your choice of two fish and chips, two canned drinks and one side dish top-up. You can also swop the mains for the grilled fish bundle ($32.10) with two grilled fish, two canned drinks and one side dish top-up. For a heartier portion, the bundle for four ($53.50) includes your choice of four main courses, four canned drinks and one side dish top-up.
3. Red Hill Rong Guang BBQ Seafood
Craving for some barbecue seafood, but want none of the smoky smell getting caught in your hair and clothes? Order the Seafood Platter ($30; for two pax) where you can choose how you want your stingray, lala (clams) and fried rice to be prepared.
We’ll recommend the sambal (chilli) stingray – an ubiquitous classic that can do no wrong. Those feeling hungry should go for their larger seafood platter ($50; for three to four pax) which comes with oyster omelette, and your choice of stingray, vegetable, chicken and fried rice. You can now beat the crowd and the stuffy fumes, and enjoy your favourite barbecue seafood dish in your pyjamas.
4. Yaowarat Seafood
You don’t have to fly to Thailand to indulge in their seafood. While we cannot compete in terms of price, the same Thai treatment is being used on the dishes here, and particularly on their small steamed seafood combo ($40; for two pax). Decide how you want to have your squid, prawns and clams prepared – in classic Thai garlic lime chilli sauce, or Hong Kong soya sauce. They also serve a larger portion ($60) which is good for four people.
5. Gurney Drive Penang Culture
Penang is known for its vibrant street food culture and delicious local delights. And this restaurant is said to be Singapore’s first halal Penang-themed restaurant, bringing you the best of authentic flavours. Their gold BBQ platter ($36.95; for three to four pax) lives up to its namesake, with barbecued lobsters, scallops, stingray prawns and satay (grilled meat) – enough to spice up any party. A close second is their silver BBQ platter ($28.95; for two pax) which comes with barbecued prawns, squid, lala and stingray.
6. Shi Zhi Wei
Enjoy the best of our hawker food served right to you at Shi Zhi Wei. For seafood prepared in a variety of ways, try the set 1 ($30; for two to three pax) which comes with clear seafood soup, seafood with tofu (beancurd), stir-fried vegetables with seafood, sweet and sour fish fillets, and fragrant steamed rice to round up the meal. Ladle some luscious gravy over your rice, or savour the sweetness from the clear seafood broth.
Larger groups can opt for set 2 ($50; for four to five pax) which comes with cereal prawns and their signature curry fish head.
7. Weili Seafood
It’s hard to decide on what to get when browsing through their menu. Their comprehensive menu covers everything from perennial tze char (coffeeshop eateries) favourites to modern hawker creations. To make things easier, opt for their 3 dishes + 1 soup combo ($48.50; for five pax) where you can choose from one fish dish, one meat dish, one vegetable dish and a soup.
