"The only thing CONSTANT in life is CHANGE."
-François La RochefoucauldIn today's fast-paced, ever-changing world, we have been witnesses to things coming and going in such lightning speed. Restaurants opening and later bidding us good bye. Take these past 6 months for example, I've had my heart broken multiple times upon hearing news after news of restaurants closing both here in Singapore and in Manila. Competition is indeed very tough in this business but together with that comes inflation of goods, shocking increase in rent and sudden death of food trends. So, when a certain restaurant reaches a milestone, a big celebration is should definitely in order!
I was recently invited to try the Anniversary Set Menu of Red House Seafood who's celebrating it's 38th anniversary this year. This restaurant first opened at the Upper East Coast Road back in 1976 but has moved out of their original site years after. It later moved to the East Coast Seafood Centre and opened another branch at The Quayside. Then late last year, Red House Seafood opened their flagship branch at Prinsep Street which is very near to Plaza Singapura (Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station).
All of the Scottish lobster and crabs were specially flown in three times a week from Scotland. Compared to the Sri Lankan Crab that most restaurants are serving, the meat of the Scottish Blue Crab was a bit flakier and was more meaty too. The size was on the medium range but was good for more than 6 pax sharing.
In additional to the Anniversary Modern Menu, they also have the Signature Set Menu for the same price. It comes with Drunken Prawns with Hua Diao Wine and Herbs, Garlic Steamed Scottish Bamboo Clams, Choice of the Spicy Seafood Combination or the Creamy Custard Prawns, Sri Lankan Chilli Crab, Crabmeat Pao Fan, Daily Greens and Dessert.
We're also excited to their the Red House Seafood Set Lunch for a reasonable price of S$38++/2 pax. You get a Dim Sum Basket (siomai, mixed mushroom dumpling, scallop & chives dumpling, char siu pao), Creamy Custard Prawns and my favorite Oyster "Yuan Yang" Hor Fun, Daily Greens and Dessert. The Hor Fun alone makes this very very very worth the try!
Be sure to visit Red House Seafood anytime before 30 June 2014 to enjoy these set menus! Happy Anniversary Red House Seafood!
