Fremantle Seafood Market (Singapore)

By , November 6, 2010 9:14 am

If you are a fan of Sunday brunches / buffets, then you’ll know that this is a really good deal! No prizes for guessing who suggested we go there – the Dan the buffet man =p In addition to a fresh spread of mussels, prawns, oysters, raw salmon and cooked codfish, there was pork knuckle, and roast chicken and lotsa salad stuff too. I thought it a very good spread! 


I didn’t go for the buffet because I usually don’t eat my money’s worth (yes yes I am so Singaporean!) and don’t like to stuff my face trying to… So, I ordered the fish and chips which was served on a wooden board. Very good fish and chips!! Even better than the real Fremantle one(Perth) in my opinion, and I was just there a few months back.


What sold me on this was the freshness and quality of the fish – the texture was a little like codfish. I enjoyed it alot with the thick crispy chips =)


I ordered the mushroom risotto too which was all mushroom flavor but lacked something (salt? :P) I thought it a bit bland but liked the picture enough to include it here 😛

Good food with a nice view of the river (if you sit outside that is) – a great way to spend a Sunday!

Fremantle Seafood Market is at Clarke Quay, beside the Gmax bungee ride.

Zhou’s Kitchen

I first visited Zhou’s Kitchen at Square 2 when they just opened. Didn’t find it blogworthy then.

Last weekend, I found myself back at Zhou’s Kitchen because I was craving for Chinese food, we were at Square 2, and I was really starving. It was with a “Oh well, this should be quite quick” mentality that we settled down to order our lunch.

I think they might have changed their menu because all the pictures looked very good on the menu (it could be my hunger). We overordered and then food was sent our way Very quickly.


Their ‘Soup of the day’ was really tasty. Pork Rib with I forgot what vegetable. You can tell it’s properly boiled with quality ingredients by the thin film of oil over the soup. That’s how it looks when I cook pork rib soup at home =)


The crispy chicken comes with the obligatory saucer of salt and plum seasoning which wasn’t needed because it was really good on its own. I like fried to a crisp chicken skin and tender chicken meat. You can tell from the picture it is all that, can’t you?


Very good chilli clams!! Spicy but not overly so. Fantastic with the fried rice =)


 You can’t really tell from this picture but this braised pork shank is HUGE. Dan an tackled it on his own. He says it is very well cooked.


This is the uber yummy seafood fried rice with spicy XO sauce. Can’t tell from the picture, but it had this burnt wok taste that is the mark of good fried rice. We like very much =)IMG_3050

I am a fan of spinach with fried tofu and usually find the places that serve it to cook it well. Same here =)

We also ordered dim sum fare (shrimp dumplings-ha gao, pork buns-char siew bao), roast meats, an assortment of mixed fruit drinks and basically ate til we couldn’t walk.

As we left the restaurant at 3plus pm, the restaurant started getting crowded with the high tea buffet spread which at 16.80++  (adult) is a pretty good deal!

I think their fare has improved from our last visit so you might wanna look out for it if there’s a Zhou’s kitchen near you =)
