Heads up strong palates, this is the dish for you. Underneath the rich and thick sauce made of milk, chilli, lemongrass and mint, you'll find a medley of fresh seafood such as prawns, fish slices, scallops and squid. The sauce is creamy, spicy, and simply explosive.

Take my suggestion and order some fried mantous to pair - you'll get something in between a chilli crab dish and lobster rolls. Sinfully good.

Red House may pride themselves in their seafood, but they dish out fine dim sum during lunch time too! (I quote my uncle, "even better than Crystal Jade's" 🤭)

Apart from the classics like Ha Kaw ($5), which is top-notch with its bouncy shrimp filling and superb skin, and the Char Siew Crispy Bun ($4, not pictured) that tastes better than Tim Ho Wan's, it also has a few unique offerings. The Truffle Wild Mushroom Dumplings ($4) is one, with truffle-laced minced mushrooms encased in a soft, spinach-infused skin. My family also loved the Takesumi Chilli Crab Bun ($8, not pictured) that spots a thick, tangy and mild spicy chilli crab filling in a half-steamed-half-baked charcoal bun. So delish!

Comprising your choice of soup, handmade fish paste, deep fried beancurd skin, sliced Kurobuta pork belly, chicken meatball, pork meatball, sliced fish, silky tofu, fresh vegetables, vermicelli, live prawns, Japanese scallop, sliced Australian beef and dessert of the day, this hotpot set is so good it's worth every penny.

The herbal black chicken soup was cooked with a chockful of chinese herbs and a whole chicken, resulting in a rich and robust soup that warms the soul. The seafood was plump and fresh, and so were the meats (just look at the marbling on the beef 😍). It may be little for two big eaters, but it was just right for my grandma and I 😊

Note: A 2-pax portion is pictured, and there's currently an ongoing 1-for-1 promotion with OCBC cards!

Steak (protein) with salad (greens) and fries (carbs) - pretty much the things that make up a balanced meal 😉 While I appreciated the thickness and beautifully pink interior (called for medium rare) of the sirloin steak, it was unfortunately underseasoned. It was a very lean cut too, resulting in a lack of tenderness and natural sweetness given off from beef fat. Definitely needed the sauce, butter and roasted garlic cloves to accompany, but I'd still have preferred a better executed steak.

Think smoked salmon eggs benedict with the muffin base replaced with a giant buckwheat pancake, topped with fried kale and ikura. While I loved the runny yolk, creamy hollandaise and fluffy pancake, I felt that this dish was created purely for the 'gram and novelty without harmony between components.

Personally, runny yolk with pancakes is already a poor combination as they're both soft; the fried kale wasn't crispy enough to provide a pleasing crunch too. The pops of saltiness from ikura were refreshing, but it doesn't gel together nicely with the rest of the ingredients (the first thing I thought of was sushi 😂). Perhaps I'm still one who prefers the classic eggs on toast/muffins and ikura on rice.

Definitely one for the dry noodle lovers as you get to taste the flavourful sauce that coats every strand of noodles. Was impressed at how the noodles didn't clump together, which is a common sight for many dry noodles out there. Upon tossing, the noodles were redolent of fragrant shallot oil and very umami. Heed my advice and add 2 heaping teaspoon of chilli provided on the table - the added fragrance and tiny heat will make this a very pleasant dish to finish clean.

Unlike our local or even the Taiwanese beef noodles, which has starchy and braised soups respectively, the ones from Tongue Tip are clear. One may not get used to how light it is, but I personally like it as I'm not one for strong and rich flavours. Chose the triangle noodles because I was curious how it'll look and taste like - they look similar to the regular thin noodles, just slightly edged and it gave a really good, unique texture! Love the generous amount of tender, sliced beef as well 👍

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!

Presentation and taste were on point. It's creamy yet not jelat, with supple grains of rice perfumed with saffron and white wine. Topped with a plump prawn, a slice of charred artichoke and a handful of mussels, this is yet another dish well-executed right here.

The al-dente angel hair was redolent of fragrant garlic and parsley. Topped with 2 huge, fresh prawns, this is a yummy pasta dish I'd recommend.

As I became slightly irritated with the waiting time of 45mins, I was even more shocked to see the mountain of greens on this plate that stole the limelight of the seabass. Perhaps it's a biased opinion, but I felt that the fish weren't fantastic enough to be worthy of its price. It's well cooked yes, but I'd loved for it to have a crispy skin and impart a smoky flavour (assuming it's grilled over fire).

Thanks to Burpple Beyond for the 1-for-1 deal nonetheless, otherwise it'll be overpriced for it'd quality.

Yet another excellent dish that was well-executed. The generous serving of chicken was juicy and had a beautifully roasted skin that gave the meat an extra oomph. The fries were crispy and nicely salted too. Thumbs up!

Thank you Burpple Beyond for introducing me to this hidden gem.
