Oceans of Seafood @ The Grandstand, Turf City
Oceans of Seafood is the best Japanese restaurant in Singapore in my opinion. It has a stylish interior in wood design. The dim light provides a calm and relaxing ambience away from the upbeat lifestyle. I would love to come here everyday and bask in such a cosy atmosphere.
I came with my best friend to celebrate my birthday because we love to eat Japanese food in a non-crowded place. Oceans of Seafood is at The Grandstand located in Turf City. It is rather troublesome to reach the area if one does not drive. There are a few shuttle bus pickup points from the MRT stations and the bus stops that can pick up people to The Grandstand.
For sashimi lovers, we indulge in Sashimi Salad ($14.00) as a starter which a variety of fresh raw fishes and salad titillate our taste buds.
Salmon Oyako Chirashi ($28.00) which means Salmon on a Sushi Rice Bowl had six thick slices of salmon and a generous serving of fish roe. The menu online reflected the price to be $20.00. The restaurant charged us $28.00 when we foot the bill. Have they increased 40% of the price or did they make a mistake that we paid for it without checking? I think that $28.00 is way too pricey for this dish. $20.00 is reasonable.
Chawan Mushi ($7.00) is a must to complete the Japanese meal. Their Chawanmushi had a lot of ingredients as you can see from the photo. The steamed egg was smooth and delightful.
We placed an order for the sushi which came in a single piece – Unagi Sushi ($ 3.40), Salmon Sushi ($ 2.50) and Maguro Sushi ($ 2.80)
We also had Lychee Frizz ($ 4.50)drinks and Salmon Avocado ($ 7.00). The total bill was $95.00 (inclusive of GST and service charge) which was rather expensive especially Salmon Oyako Chirashi. I still felt that it was not worth the price of $28.00. Nevertheless, I will patronise this Japanese restaurant again if I have the chance.
