we had a wonderful dinner for a very good friend at red house @ prinsep street on 4.5.2016. ^^

my primary school classmate bought lunch here recently (also a birthday). i thought the food was pretty good & might be a good place for the birthday dinner. 🙂

dungeness crab 苏格兰面包螃蟹

#4 dungeness crab 苏格兰面包螃蟹 – S$86

the 苏格兰面包螃蟹 (similar to dungeness crabs at pier 39 san francisco, also a common crab dish in hong kong & china seafood restaurants) was priced at the same S$72/kg. it’s 1.2kg so S$86, quite a bit more expensive.

this also red house signature dish.

the crab meat was quite solid & more firm than sri-lankan crab.

i felt sri-lankan crab was tastier & had a better texture.

also my wife & i thought the chilli sauce was quite poor really, quite sweet but not intense with meat sweetness, instead gluey, sweet not spicy, more like a tourist version.

i would say alan’s homecooked chilli crab was a lot better than this la…

actually we ordered the chilli sri-lankan crab but they came with the expensive (heavier at 1.2kg)苏格兰面包螃蟹 . it was ok for us too to try a new crab dish.

the broad kuay teow was especially flavourful. & the serving had quite a bit of prawns & sotong.

it was a good round-up dish for the dinner.

birthday cake

i didn’t have time so just got a 6″ 500g cake from swissbake at holland village.

this their most popular signature cake paradiso di nicciola. 🙂

cake was pretty good but the double chocolate praline from patissier was just a ot better la…

another friend, my weekly jogging partner, quietly paid for dinner without our knowledge. we were still waiting for the bill but he already settled it. ^^

dinner came to S$409. it was less than S$60pax nett. i think pretty good for this quality of food & actually cheaper than the recent 5pax lunch (which was S$311 for 5pax).

the service here was excellent, very friendly, very attentive, keep changing plates & gave a lot (continuous supply) of wet tissues etc. very good service indeed!
