If you’re looking for the freshest seafood in the city, then you’re in for a treat at Yan Ming Seafood. They have all sorts of delicious crustaceans on the menu, but you’ve gotta try the Andrew Lobster, which is popular for being meaty, tender, and juicy. The best part about the dish is that it comes with chee cheong fun, giving it a delightful texture.

Another must-try is the Steamed Baby Sotong, which is steamed for perfect chewiness and mixed with a savoury sauce and garlic for a burst of addictive umami flavour. 🤤

Located conveniently in the bustling Geylang Serai area, Mutiara Seafood is arguably Singapore’s best halal seafood restaurant, serving authentic Indonesian-style seafood.

Kick off your visit with the Crispy Fried Baby Squid, a light yet delicious appetiser that’ll prepare your taste buds for the meal ahead. The squid is fried to golden perfection with a sweet and tangy batter that’s addictively crunchy.

One of the restaurant’s signatures is the butterflied Jimbaran Grilled Prawns. The secret to this dish lies in the sweet-savoury gravy and the smoky aftertaste of the grilled prawns.

Make sure to end your meal with the Mango Pudding for a kick of sweetness and creaminess. 🥭
