Popped by Scaled a while back, and suffice to say it was one of the best meals we had in our entire lives. We always joke that we’re almost pescatarians cuz we would choose seafood over meat anytime! And boy oh boy, we haven’t had seafood so fresh and well executed in such a long time.

First, we had the 𝐑𝐨𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐧𝐬 ($17) which were topped with seaweed butter and braised kelp. They were bursting with flavour, with the seaweed butter melting delightfully and making it an absolutely scrumptious dish. Probably the only gripe we had was that some of the prawns were a bit hard to eat, with the meat sticking to the shells.

The other side we ordered were the 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐬 ($16), doused in homemade curry and topped with fried mantou. We felt like this was a perfect pairing, as the curry covered any brininess from the mussels. Psst, the mantous are also free flow if you want more.

Moving on to the mains, we had the 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩𝐞𝐫 ($27) in cantonese style broth, with sweet potato noodles and lala. This was one of my personal favourites, as I LOVE eating fish cooked the Cantonese way and always order it during zhichar. As the grouper here was roasted instead of steamed, I loved how crispy the skin remained even after dunking it in the broth. The broth is also soya-sauce based, and could get slightly salty but the sweet potato noodles paired really well with it.

Lastly, we had the 𝐒𝐞𝐚𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐬 𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐚 ($23) which featured nori cream tagliatelle, topped with pickled radishes and tobikko. Wow, every bite of this dish was just bursting with flavour and the adding of pickled radishes helped to balance it out when the dish got too overwhelming. Definitely a must-order!

The mussels were more plump than your average mussel, and the curry was quite rich and well-balanced - not too spicy or coconutty but sufficiently lemak. I enjoyed the mantous with the crisp exteriors!

Overall, this is a decent place but I felt like there were more misses than hits. Maybe because we are not really the seafood kind of people so we couldn’t properly appreciate it. Probably wouldn’t return, but if you do visit I would recommend the curry mussels and the canto grouper, and perhaps the seabass pasta. Service was not bad, they give a brief introduction of each dish when they serve it, but the timing that the food came could be better managed.

The “pate” was indeed smoky, but it wasn’t anything to shout about. The sourdough was very nicely toasted tho, it was crunchy and of a good thickness. The pickled garlic shoots were quite interesting, and the “olive vegetable” (as per what they wrote on their menu) was rather strong in olive flavour. The components didn’t really gel well together though.
