Thank yous. :)

This blog started off as a place for me to pen down my food hunts to share with my friends and as I post more pictures, review on the food I have tasted, I began to really enjoy that sense of achievement I feel when people tried the food I recommended and love it as much as I did. It doesnt hurt that I treat it as an exercise to improve my style of writing and how I engage readers on my food entries.

Today, this blog has been read 1500 times and although this figure is peanuts to advertisers, famous bloggers who received such view counts every day, it's huge to me. It's a little milestone to me and I truly appreciate it when friends commented that they read my entries and that brunch place I've penned down is next on their list of food places to try! It makes me very happy and I just wanna thank every one of you for checking this space out. :)

There's a few places on my list that I can't wait to try out and recommend to you guys (if they're good)!

Stay tuned.

Chef's Recommendations (literally) at Fremantle

I must admit that I'm a very lucky foodie, because I have an awesome gf who works for a food company, who knows the chef at Fremantle, who recommended us his best creations! We were really in for a treat because everything was technically at 50% off because the company has this ongoing gift vouchers promotion - more details at the end of this.

NZ Salmon ($12)

We started well with the freshest and most generous cuts of salmon sashimi and things start to get even better towards the end of the meal!

Wild King Snapper ($20)

 Stir-fried mushrooms topped with a poached egg ($8)

Oysters ($44 for a dozen)

 Mussels in Spicy White Wine broth ($25)

Whole Lobsters Thermidor ($58)

Chilli King Crabs ($88)

The chili king crabs were ah-mazing! We didn't even need much effort to pry the meat form the shell and the crab meat were very firm and juicy. The chili crab sauce was quite unique with that tinge of sichuan spice. Don't be fooled if you can't taste the fiery pepper, it will hit you once you are done with one king crab leg. 

Another highlight of the night was the oysters - we could literally taste the sea and it didn't take us long before the whole platter was gone! It would be even better if the chef had gone a bit lighter on the salt for the lobsters and the mussels but I must say that the lobsters were so very fresh and succulent. 

There's a 1-for-1 promo for the mojitos from 5-8pm, which is very worth it because the mojitos were refreshing and complimented the wonderful seafood feast perfectly! Also, you may buy the dining vouchers at just $50 for $100 worth of fresh seafood! The other participating merchants include Siam Kitchen, Boston Seafood Shack, Barossa, Sukiya, Bangkok Jam, etc. More details here.

It was an awesome seafood feast with wonderful company by the river and I felt so thankful that I have these girlfriends who are as foodie as me. ;)
