Greenwood Fish Market, Valley Point

Greenwood Fish Market has just opened up at Valley Point (#01-21/22/23 491 River Valley Road, tel : +65 6732 3788); which is a much more centralized location than their other two shops - the original being Greenwood Ave. and another at Quayside Isle in Sentosa. I just realized that it's been quite a long while since I've had anything from them.

We happened to stumble in on their oyster day which is every Tuesday. Those oysters are no longer a dollar each. It's almost double that these days. Still a pretty good deal considering how much oysters cost here. We had half a dozen and realized that these went down far too quickly and ordered another half dozen. 

They have a lobster bisque on menu. Deliciously salted and competently flavoured if you asked me.

Greenwood does their own version of aglio olio which also comes with some fried shallot, spinach and anchovies. Those melted anchovies added a punch to the flavours. Not to mention a bunch of saltiness as well.

I wanted to get monkfish but they weren't available so I thought why not the curious sounding fried smoked chicken. Applewood smoked and then deep fried sans batter. I liked that all the smokiness managed to get into the meat but the meat was a little dry and the chicken was a little too salty. Not feeling it for their fries which were really pale.

We had to get a fish since we were here so it was a pan fried barramundi which was their recommended style of preparation for the fish. While the fish was delicious and of good quality, this one had the soggiest skin. Running a fork through that skin doesn't make that scraping sound. It was silent and merely ruffled up the fish skin.
