Freshly Steamed Turbot ($12 for every 100gms) Maybe I haven’t been paying close enough attention but I don’t think many seafood eateries, regardless of price point, serve fresh #turbot. And I am referring to swimming-in-a-tank kind of fresh. My dad who is Teochew and really knows his fishes, ordered one straightaway. Although it’s not cheap (our perfectly steamed 700gm specimen cost $84), we were very pleased with its medium-firm, springy and flavourful flesh and gelatinous skin. We are sure to return to try more dishes at “Tian Tian Seafood Restaurant” because the food we had turned out to be really tasty and well executed. Plus I like the old-school vibes of the place (they even have tables spilling out into the back alley of their shophouse unit). And for those of you who work late or are on the lookout for a supper spot that serves proper hearty fare, the good news is they operate from 5pm to 3.30am.

The Off-The-Menu Stirfried Instant Noodles ($7) This plate of sinfulness at “Tian Tian Seafood Restaurant” became a blip on my radar thanks to Caecilia (Instagram: @singaporeliciouz) who had posted about it some time ago. I got around to trying it when my dad and I visited the seafood “zichar” spot along Outram Road this evening. To be frank, the dish is super simple - instant noodles stirfried with minced pork in a bit of sambal chilli and pork lard, then topped with a fried egg and luncheon meat. Anyone can probably rustle this up at home but it doesn’t change the fact that hoovering up those curly strands and chomping on the thick pieces of fried luncheon meat sparked joy in me.

Hitsumabushi Unagi Set I have tried Man Man Unagi before Uya. Hence, Man Man has raised the standards for Ungai Don and I have certain expectations when trying the Hitsumabushi Unagi set at Uya. While Man Man has to queue, there isn't much queue for Uya. Based on my recollection, the prices for Man Man and Uya are around the same. Advantages for Uya are that they sell a wider variety of food compared to Man Man. However, given the prices, I will still go for Man Man as its quality and taste are better. If you are craving for grilled Unagi and you are around the Orchard area, Uya is still a fairly good option.

👉Hitsumabushi👈 Opening its doors at @wheelockplace just beginning of last year, @uya_sg aims to deliver a grilled unagi which is exactly the same as you will find in Nagoya. The tare used is made using a sauce base that has been a family secret and passed down over four generations. 。 Without any live killings of fresh eels and no DIY grated wasabi like Man Man Unagi, I was slightly disappointed that the grilled unagi didn’t match up to their strong competitor. There were many soft bones here and there which destroyed the overall pleasant mouthfeel. Made with the condiments (Spring Onion, Wasabi & Nori) and Dashi broth, the Ochazuke (rice with soup) was underwhelming and lacked that umami kick. 。 P.S. I guess I’m left with the last specialty grilled eel restaurant, @unagiyaichinoji to decide who’s the best 😋. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
