Red House Seafood Restaurant (Prinsep Street)
The seafood chain’s third and latest outlet at Prinsep Street is a bright, modern and understated space with an unpretentious ambience. On offer are local classics like chili crab, salted egg yolk crab, Red House seafood potage and lobster in creamy custard sauce.
The buzz: This seafood eatery (which also has branches at East Coast and Robertson Quay) has expanded to Prinsep Street, just off Orchard Road.
The vibe: Gone are the wobbly red plastic chairs expected of Singapore seafood joints. A spacious 300-seater in a conserved multi-story shophouse, this outlet is sleek and simple, with minimalist dark wood furnishings all round.
The food: Dig into market price local classics like chilli crab and salted egg yolk crab, as well as newer innovations like the spicy seafood combination (from $28), a saucy Thai inflected trough of shrimp, scallop and squid.
The drinks: There’s homemade iced lemon tea ($5), fresh juices ($5.50) and sodas ($4). Nothing unexpected, but they do the job.
Why you’ll be back: The food’s good, and the space is modern and comfortable for a seafood joint. Plus, it’s rare to get local seafood specialties so close to the city center.
