Riverside Grilled Fish (江边城外), Raffles City


Riverside Grilled Fish (#B1-06/07 Raffles City Shopping Centre, 252 North Bridge Road, tel : +65 6352 2035) opened about a year back. From what I could gather, they're a chain from China. This was suppose to be their first outlet outside China. Yes, it's another one of those again. 

Food's not bad. We had a garoupa with black bean sauce and we topped it up with bean curd sheets and luncheon meat. If you're wondering what happen to the latter items, they were mostly under the fish. The black bean sauce was just a little bit spicy, buffed with the aroma of Szechuan peppercorns and fermented black beans. Salty and moreish and would have been excellent with white rice. 

There was fried rice from their menu was unexpectedly addictive and nicely done. Only gripe - the garoupa was much smaller than I had imagined and maybe it's just not the tender flaky fish that I was hoping for. Will try another fish with another sauce the next time.
