Bring a spare stomach for this

This place apparently needs no introduction, judging from the size of the crowd.

That above is the queue.

And these are the diners:

Yep, it’s a big place and this big table above is reserved for us!

And this is us:

You need a big group if you want to enjoy your seafood.

This restaurant is supposed to be famous for its unique crabs. But this was my first time coming here, thanks to Hamster Ely, who bought us dinner because she snagged a cushy new job.

Our first dish was drunken prawns. I really love drunken prawns, but I really hate having to watch live prawns get cooked. Yes, it’s one of those absurdities of human nature.

I need to share my horror, so here’s a picture.



I’m sorry, prawns, but you were quite delicious.

The next dish, thankfully, came to us already dead and properly garnished.

Bamboo clams with enoki mushrooms!

That was really yummy.

I can’t remember what this next one is called. Some kinda pork rib or other:

Who cares what it’s called as long as it tastes good?

Yeah, like, who cares what this is called, either?

It’s some kind of chicken or other and it tastes good. That’s all that matters, ay?

The tofu with pork floss came at a time when I was getting full.

What a pity.

In fact, I started dinner not really feeling hungry because we’d been snacking on pizza and junk food the entire afternoon before this dinner.

A darn waste.

Because when the main attraction came, I was severely in need of a spare stomach.

The main attraction, of course, is crab.

But this vermicelli crab was only the prelude. I didn’t touch it because it looked utterly unremarkable and I had to save that last square inch of my stomach for the main, main attraction, which was…

Really seriously awesome shit.

Not shit, literally, if you get my drift.

It’s a key dish of the restaurant. I can’t remember what stupid name they call it, but it’s basically crab in cream sauce, as you can see.

You have to order fried mantou (Chinese bun) to dip in the sauce.

In fact, forget about eating anything else. Just come here and eat mantou with this.

Like this:

Divine bliss!!! !!! !!!

Then again, eat too much of this creamy stuff and you might start feeling sick. So, yeah, order something else, too.

Like a proper Chinese banquet, we had fried rice at the end of our meal. The fried rice is supposed to be famous and special, but I thought it was normal.

No picture because I was already on the verge of regurgitation.

Anyway, who can eat rice after so much food? I never touch the rice or noodles at the end of banquets. I think they’re ridiculous and should be done away with entirely.

The name of this restaurant is really corny. It’s called Seafood Paradise. I mean, can you get any cornier?

Seafood Paradise is located at 91 Defu Lane 10, Swee Hin Building. You might want to call to make reservations because you can see for yourself that the walk-in queue is crazy. Phone number is 6487 2429.

Remember, if you’re going to eat seafood, don’t snack on junk food before!!
