ieatishootipost‘s Makan Session is a foodie outing which I try to attend whenever I can, cos’ I get to try the best of a recommended restaurant at the best value. These sessions are highly popular, and seats are as hard to book as K-Pop concert tickets. This time round, I managed to get a seat at their most recent makan session at Ocean Kingdom Seafood Restaurant. S$30 for a 10-course menu consisting of Sri Lanka crabs, prawns, scallops and the rare stone fish – not bad at all.
Fish Maw Soup
Deep Fried Bringal with Pork Floss
Hong Kong Style Steamed Stone Fish
Prawn in White Sauce with deep fried buns
Double Style Pork Ribs
Steamed Scallops with Garlic
Beancurd with Dried Scallops
Sri Lanka Crab with Beehoon
Longan with Aloe Vera
On the whole, I enjoyed dinner and catching up with my foodie friends. I wouldn’t say the cooking style was much to shout about, it was pretty normal. What stood out was the freshness of the seafood, perhaps they were so fresh there wasn’t much need to fancy-cook them any further. If you are looking for fresh seafood, Ocean Kingdom’s a good bet. If you are looking for fanciful cooking methods, you are better off looking elsewhere. Recommended for family gatherings.
