Red House Seafood 小红楼, Prinsep Street

Red House Seafood Prinsep review
To celebrate its 38th anniversary, the Prinsep Street flagship serves 5-course lunch for only $38+ for two persons (ongoing promotion); and 7-course set dinner for six persons at $388+ (till 30 Jun 2014), which includes a bottle of champagne (Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut) OR white wine (Domaine Leflaive Macon-Verze 2010) OR two jugs of Tiger beer. This dinner is great for Mother’s Day celebration. There are two choices for set dinner: a set of Red House Seafood signatures or a set of new dishes.

Red House’s new creations are sustainable seafood that come fresh, not frozen, from Scotland three times weekly. You can order the dishes individually but it is more worth going for the set.

The 7-course dinner set starts with a chilled spicy whelks (sea snails, $35, pictured above), tossed with mango and onions in sweet and spicy Thai dressing, refreshing but onions are overwhelming. The whelks are followed by the Scottish blue lobster coated in sweet mayo ($148/kg, below), which is less tender and sweet than Boston lobster, good for people who prefer something with a bite.

For the third course, there is a choice between spicy seafood combination ($28/ $42/ $56, above) and garlic steamed Megrim fish ($100/kg, below). The former is a mix of cuttlefish, prawns, scallops, and Garoupa fish slices in a kaffir-laced Thai red curry style. Soak up the sauce in a hot mantou shiok! The Megrim fish, a flat turbot, does seem more valued at more than $100 a fish, but the taste is a tad light for me.

Next, Scottish brown crab in white pepper ($55/kg) is a refreshing change from the usual black pepper crab or chilli crab. And the white pepper gets into the flesh, which is less sweet than Sri Lankan crabs.

My favorite dish is oyster “yuan yang” hor fun ($20) with different textures: 6 huge Scottish oysters in a bed of soft omelette, atop a mix of wok-fried hor fun and deep-fried crunchy hor fun. This is followed by daily greens and desserts.
