Palm Beach Seafood restaurant was our choice as we were in a true seafood mood (and their website is quite well designed… Merchandising, always does the trick when a new-bee), and given all the different rewards it has, it had definitely awaken our curiosity (new recipes are also proving to be a hit, such as the « gingerly giant prawns », chosen as one of the top ten signature dishes at the 2007 Singapore Food Festival).
We got a table facing the water, and according to the waitress, the house’s speciality is the chilli crab, as well as the giant prawns.
Unfortunately, those signature dishes we a bit over an already generous budget…
As we were awaiting for the platter, the business around the Fullerton Square is quite a must see, for who ever discovers Singapore.
The boat building becomes this neon throwing landscape element, from green to purple lights… The water echos with some other buildings and light effects, less physically impressive, yet taking part of the visual show.
When the platter made it’s entry, I must admit we were all a tad disappointed by the quantities :
- 4 oysters
- 4 prawns
- 4 salmon sashimi
- 4 crab « paws »
- a spicy squid salad
Don’t get me wrong, the entire platter was an absolute delight. But 5 bites for 32$, to which you then add the taxes and service is a bit of a rip off (and we were splitting the 4th imaginary dude’s bill as well)…
Let’s say that it was an amazingly great and overpriced mise en bouche, that definitely got us up and about : looking for true filling food.
The bill, for a « 4 persons » seafood platter and a beer pitcher was a little under 200$
