A Crabby Love Date@ Singapore Seafood Republic RWS

This is me. I am Mummy Mae!
I do not usually look like this, locks down and relax.......
I am at this nice, quiet, elegant dining place.
I am on a date.
Not a usual kind of date, but a Crabby Love Date.........
A Crabby Love Date with Daddy Pok at the Singapore Food Republic @ Resorts World Sentosa!

It has been ages since Daddy Pok and I had last sunk our teeth into sweet and juicy crab meat. Dining in peace is a heavenly treat for us ever since we became parents. It was our anniversary again, ROM anniversary + Wedding anniversary + birthdays, all celebrations in one package :) . When we saw the deal on Groupon, we decided to go for a crabby adventure, a crabby quest which would satisfy our years of craving for seafood!

Singapore Seafood Republic @ Resorts World Sentosa
Singapore Seafood Republic is an iconic Seafood Restaurant chain which consist of 4 famous seafood restaurants in Singapore. It is a collaboration in between Jumbo Seafood, Palm Beach Seafood Restaurant, Tung Lok Seafood and The Seafood International Market and Restaurant. The menu takes in the best signature dishes from all 4 restaurants so that the customers like us would not need to crack our heads in choosing which restaurant to go to!

Ambience and Service
We were there on a weekday lunch. The restaurant was quiet as to our expectation. The interior settings looked white, clean and bright. We were served by a friendly staff and he was patient enough to answer our queries on the dishes. He recommended ideas and dishes when we were indecisive on our selection. In addition to the table service, a lime water was provided at each table for customers to clean their hands before and after the meal. We were also given aprons when we feasted on the crabs. Overall, we did mark our experience as 8/10.

#1 Dish of The Day : The Award Winning Chilli Crab 

The Award Winning Chilli Crab

Fried Mantou.
This is a dish which we can never miss out when we are on our crabby quest - the Award Winning Chilli Crab by Jumbo Seafood. The thick spicy and tangy gravy is very appetizing and it make us want to have more. We ordered merely 5 fried mantou to go with the gravy. Well fret not, because we could even lick the pot on its own even without the buns! The only drawback for this dish is that our crabs were not exceptionally big. We have got just the average size of pincers and bodies. 
Price : $54.40 (Price varies based on weight of the crab and subjected to seasonal price)
Our Rating : 9/10

#2 Dish of The Day : Steamed Bamboo Clams with Minced Garlic 

Bamboo Clams

This dish was not planned, it was a coincidental request. We were told that fresh bamboo clams has just arrived that day and we gave it a shot. We have no regrets on this impromptu order as the clams were remarkably fresh! It was served in oriental style, steamed with glass noodles and minced garlic. The simplicity brought out the utmost freshness of the bamboo clams. It had to be served warm and eaten before it turns cold. The texture of clams were springy and super duper "QQ". We love this dish very much!
Price : $16 per clam
Our Rating : 8.5/10

#3 Dish of The Day : Award Winning Salted Egg Golden Prawns

Golden Prawn with Salted Egg.
Another award winning dish on our list - Golden Prawn with Salted Eggs. The prawns were deep fried till golden and crunchy while coated in salted egg sauce. This is a great dish for salted egg lovers. The first bite was an unforgettable experience as it was full of aromatic sandy salted egg. However, overdoses of these golden prawns left us feeling somewhat surfeit.
Price : $24.00
Our Rating : 8/10

#4 Dish of The Day : Black Pepper Crab 

Black Pepper Crab.

The fierce looking pincers awaiting for its conqueror.......
Another Crab dish? Oh Yes! We have not forgotten that we were on our crabby quest. We ordered another crab dish but prepared in a different way - in Black Pepper. We were slightly disappointed at this dish as it was rather salty for our taste buds. Nevertheless, the pungent black pepper brought out a flavorful burst of fragrance.
Price : $54.40 (Price varies based on weight of the crab and subjected to seasonal price)
Our Rating : 7/10

#5 Dish of The Day : Lamb Chop with Black Pepper

Black Pepper Lamb Chop
This dish serves as a good break from the astounding array of seafood dishes. Daddy Pok requested for a meat dish and we settled with this lamb chop. We did not set high hopes. We were glad that the dish turn out exceptionally appealing. The meat was soft, succulent and juicy, undoubtedly delicious with the tasty black pepper sauce. 
Price : $32.00
Our Rating : 8/10

Desserts and Drinks

The Groupon voucher which we purchased summed up to $300 worth of expenditure. So, we had to order a few drinks and desserts in order to meet that amount. We played by the ear and these were the few orders which we placed.

1.) Papaya with Coconut Pudding, $7.00
- This was a good one. The coconut milk pudding was fragrant enough and blended well with the small papaya. It was light and refreshing. It is worth a try!

2.) Chilled Honey Dew Sago, $5.00
- I did not expect to see a colorful combination of serving. I did thought it was the green honey dew served with smooth and creamy sauce. I had to hold back my expectations to explore this new presentation. Apparently, the orange honey dew was use, served in crushed ice and topped with colorful "tadpole-liked" sago. The drizzle of coconut milk on this dessert did add on some dimension to the sweetness.

3.) Pina Colada, $13.80
- A sensational alcohol drink for the day. This cocktail is made with rum, cream of coconut and pineapple juice, garnished with maraschino cherry and a slice of orange. It was a delightful drink good enough to entice the "Romantique" atmosphere. 

Pina Colada
4.) Fruit Punch, $7.00
- A mixture of different juices which turn out to be a great combination to quench the thirst of the well-fed customers.

Fruit Punch
5.) Ice Coffee, $7.80
- Nothing quite special except they needed some time to brew the coffee and turn out to be very much like Kopi-O-bing.

We are one pair of crabby lovers who left the dining with tummy full and cravings satisfied. Mission accomplished!
