With Chinese New Year just 2 days away, I bet most of you are scrambling to get last-minute CNY shopping done! When it comes to 办年货 (buying Chinese New Year goods), most of us will think of Chinatown and after a whole day of tasting mochis, crackers, pineapple tarts, cookies etc., I don't know about you but I will usually be craving for non-Chinese food at the end of the day. If you are craving for western food with a twist, go check out 49 Seats at Kreta Ayer Road, which is slightly off Keong Siak Road and just a few minutes walk from Chinatown central area.
Another dish that you can try is the Pan Fried Fish with Al Scampi sauce. The grilled fish was soft and well marinated and the fries was surprisingly good! Initially I thought that the Al Scampi sauce should compliment well with the fish, but it tasted great on its own as well. The pan fried fish alone is $13.90 and an extra $3 with the Al Scampi sauce.
