|Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro at night|
The bistro is so spacious that dancing around the tables would be easy. The environment is a marked change from the hustle and bustle of stressful Singapore— Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro is truly a place where light-hearted conversations can take place.
Unlike some of the sleazier bars in town, the bar at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro is brightly lit.
The crew pouring our drinks on the spot — a subtle indication of their freshness.
Tuna Tataki - S$19.00
One of the more interesting dishes was the Tuna Tataki, which consisted of pear crumble, wakame seaweed, avruga caviar and edible flowers. Although it looks raw, it has been briefly seared over a flame, while keeping the original taste intact. Only the very best can taste great in its original form (with little heating). The addition of bits of pear crumble was indeed an ingenious idea, forming a perfect combination with the avruga caviar and wakame seaweed.
Rekorderlig Cider - S$12.90 (per bottle), S$10.90 (hh)A choice of Strawberry & Lime OR Wildberries
We were introduced to one of the most refreshing drinks ever. It was filled with delicious fresh antioxidant fruits such as strawberries and blueberries, and topped with refreshing Rekorderlig cider. It was a great opening to the evening ahead.
Salad of The Day
Chef’s Selection of Salad — (Price: Refer to blackboard menu as it changes daily)
This dish is changed daily depending on what comes in fresh each day. While I think that QSFB could improve on the plating of this dish, every bit of the salad was fresh and juicy. The tiger prawns were served with yellow frisy and scallops, making every bite succulent and juicy. The sauces used were well-balanced, with none of them too overpowering.
QSFB’s signature chilli crab linguine - S$28.00A house specialty pasta
This is probably the star of the entire meal. The soft-shell chilli crab rests upon a bed of linguine, innocently waiting for its food-tasting verdict. There is nothing overly pretentious about the dish, except for flakes of mixed herbs strewn across the plate. It was indeed a great pairing with the linguine as the smooth pasta went really well with the crispy protein.
Baked Barramundi - S$29.00Pumpkin puree, red wine poached pear, lobster butter sauce, fried chorizo
My favourite on the plate was the lobster butter sauce — you must pair it with the baked barramundi to make it taste great. The consistency of the pumpkin puree was not as smooth, as I could detect bits and pieces of the pumpkin. The red wine poached pear didn't appear as good, but was in fact a blissful marriage of unique flavours.
Sex at Quayside - S$16.00 (gls), S$14.00 (hh)prosecco, peach schnapps, cranberry juice, orange juice
While most of my fellow diners loved this drink, I found it a tad too strong. STRANGELY however, I kept wanting to slurp more, as if I was addicted to it (until I ended up finishing the drink). On a random note, the tall glass made me feel like I was in Hawaii.
Homemade Tiramisu - S$14.00The best in Sentosa, some say Singapore
One of the most difficult parts of a full-course meal would be the dessert. Many chefs struggle to dish out desserts as stunning as their other courses, but the chefs at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro managed to ace the Tiramisu. It was really well-balanced, being rich on the exterior yet remaining light within. The coffee and liquor provided both sweet and bitter touches.
Chocolate Dreams - S$18.00 (gls), S$16.00 (hh)vodka, kahlua, cacao brown, baileys, milk and chocolate rim
My first impression of this drink was that it LOOKED quite diluted, but my oh my, it tasted so great that I wanted so much more! Gulping down the cocktail was a signal to my tastebuds that my meal had officially ended, though I knew somewhere within me craved for more.
