Scottish Blue Mussels

$30.00 · 9 Reviews

The amount of small mussels given were generous, but I'd prefer if they have given me bigger, plumper mussels in fewer amounts 😛 Nonetheless, the white wine sauce was light and tasty - you definitely need those bread (not the burnt parts) to soak it all up!

Thanks to Burpple Beyond for the 1-for-1 deal!

Under the @burpple Hot 100 2018, @firebakesg is a unique bakehouse and restaurant featuring Singapore’s first-ever full-scale wildfire bread oven. The menu there features hearty dishes cooked with traditional European techniques, which complement and showcase the range of woodfire baked sourdough bread. Featured are two of their bestsellers!

The seafood risotto was well-executed and definitely exceeded my expectations. Those threads of saffron helped to unlock a new level of “yum”, making the risotto aromatic and mouth-watering. And of course, not forgetting the seabass dish that was drowned with greens, it was delectable too.

I will surely be back again to try their Scottish Blue Mussels as well as their bakes ☺️.

The sourdough bread that came with it soaked up every single heavy flavor of the sauce. 🍞 Great ambience even though there’s no air condition!

I’m a sucker for heavy flavours, so when the choice came for White Wine or Chorizo and Craft Beer, you know what I picked.

The seemingly bottomless pot was filled with mussels, all decently fat and juicy, steeped in a super kao, finger lickin’ craft beer and chorizo sauce. Salty with a bubbly, zesty zing, it’s heavenly when sopped up with the side of bread. Or if you’re hardcore like me and mum, on its own (eep!). This also comes peppered with thick-cut chorizo, which while slightly dry (all its moisture gone to the gravy) still pack bursts of umami flavour.

[SG Top Restaurants Special Award - Best Casual Restaurant] The Special Awards by @sgtoprestaurants @wineanddinesg highlight establishments that stand out from the crowd by offering unique experiences to Singapore's discerning diners. And that certainly showed in the quality of food and bakes I had at @firebakesg, which is awarded Best Casual Restaurant for 2018/2019.

Pictured here is the Seafood Saffron Risotto ($28) which I really loved. It had a lighter and more refreshing consistency, and that flavourful sauce came with a strong taste of saffron. The mussels are also fresh and soft.
🔸
And you must not skip their breads. From their woodfire ovens, they conjure up awesome, freshly baked breads.. and that also came in the form of scones ($7) served with jam (or you could opt for orange marmalade) and clotted cream. Be greeted by the wafting smell of butter, before enjoying the scones with a nice crisp wood scented crust and a dense but soft crumb on the inside. I think it's as good as it gets.
🔸
To make things even better, my Saffron Risotto was free with my purchase of the Scottish Blue Mussels ($30). This is because there are 1 for 1 discounts here with #BurppleBeyond by @Burpple, which is a program where you can get 1 for 1 deals at more than 100 partner cafes, restaurants and bars under the program. Burpple Beyond is free for off-peak membership, or only $9.90 per month for anytime membership.

And that's a big pot Scottish blue mussel. The mussels weren't big, but they were very soft and fresh, swimming in a pot of savoury sweet white wine sauce filled with herby scent. And that bread, I ordered more of the soft sourdough bread so that I can soak up those sauces.

After many months of gestation, Burpple has launched a new premium membership programme designed to help everyone explore curated restaurants, cafes and bars, where 1-for-1 mains and even special set menus can be enjoyed. It’s only $9.90 a month (similar arrangement as Netflix and Spotify) with the option to cancel anytime. I mean, seriously, how cool is that! And the moment you sign up, you’ll immediately have more than 130 places (it is that quantity right now but the number is always rising) to choose from for dining. So I made a beeline to Firebake as it was on the list.

This casual restaurant in Katong is already famous for its gigantic, built-into-the-premises wood-fired oven from which their popular loaves of sourdough and other bakes come to life. But their seafood dishes are what I love as well.

I enjoyed a most fabulous lunch of “Scottish Blue Mussels cooked in White Wine with Onions and Dill” ($30) plus a “Grilled Mediterranean Seabass with Kailan in the most luscious Lemon-Caper Sauce”. Guess what? I didn’t pay a cent for the $25 Seabass dish because I redeemed it 1-for-1 with #burpplebeyond. If you do the Math, this single visit already made my $9.90 subscription fee more than worth it.

I truly believe that Burpple Beyond is a membership programme of exceptional value that will benefit all. Not only to stretch their dollar more wisely but also to help search for the right places to have good meals with family and friends.

This generous pot of small but super plump blue mussels doused in white wine & fresh herbs is a definite must order! 💙💙 The mussels were tender & soaked up all that white wine goodness. This dish is also served w sourdough slices on the side so use them to clean the pot dry! Very addictive dish that you'll find yourself reaching into the pot again & again until every single shell is emptied.
