Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro

HungryEpicurean.com - Singapore Unbiased Food Reviews of Best Restaurants

Zaylene was craving for seafood one day, so I thought why not?

Admittedly, with the exception of Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro, I’m not aware of any specialty western seafood restaurants around. (Save for Fish & Co, Manhattan Fish Market). I have been to Greenwood Fish Market once, prior to the opening of their new outlet and was pleased with my meal. Another reason that keeps me going back to Greenwood is how affordable a meal at Greenwood is, given the quality and range of seafood that you get here.

So off to Greenwood Ave, we both went, in the hope that Zayzay’s cravings could be satisfied.

Complimentary Bread

Served cold, the bread was so dry and frankly seemed to have been devoid of any moisture whatsoever.

It left our table, barely touched.

Lobster Bisque + Brandy + Fresh Lobster Meat

Rather than go for the ubiquitous soup of the day – Cream of Mushroom, we chose to start dinner with a Lobster Bisque.

A tad too thin for me, otherwise, it was decent. Neither the best that I’ve had the pleasure of having nor the worst.

I still think The French Kitchen‘s Lobster Bisque is the best that I’ve had thus far.

Swordfish Toro Sashimi ($12.95)

Both the Salmon and Swordfish Toro sashimi that we ordered were fresh – No complaints there.

I would have loved if they had freshly grated wasabi as accompaniment, rather than the mass-produced, flavour-enhanced version they provide here. Of course, this is no sushi specialty restaurant, but with such fresh fish available, it would be a waste not to have it as an option.

Grilled Swordfish

Accompanied by Asparagus and Pumpkin puree, Zaylene’s choice of the Grilled Swordfish as her main course, was an excellent one.

I took a small bite and realized that the outer parts of the fish were a tad overcooked. Fortunately all was not lost, for the insides remained succulent and moist.

And, most importantly, it satisfied her craving.

Grilled Tarakihi

I was paying close attention while the wait staff first read out the fishes that were in season, but she lost me when she said, “Tarakihi.”

At the back of my mind, I was thinking, “Tara- what?”

Since I have had not the opportunity to try this fish, I gladly accepted her suggestion to give it a try, hoping to be surprised.

Surprised would have been an understatement! I liked the fish!

The New Zealand native was not-so-oily,had firm meat (somewhere in between dory and snapper) and was not strong tasting.

I especially liked the simple buttery sauce that accompanied the fish.

Valrhona Warm Chocolate Fondant with Vanilla Ice Cream + Seasonal Berries

Zaylene loved the Valrhona chocolate fondant.

I thought that it was a tad dry on the outside, although the molten chocolate within it helped to ‘moisturize’ the otherwise boring dessert.

    It's deserters like Kyl who got Lakin where he is now because of their dereliction of duty in answering his constitutionally protected right to seek answers to the question of whether his orders were legitimate in light of the big, frickin' cloud over Barry's head that is casting doubts on whether he is constitutionally eligible to be president.
