Big Fish Seafood Grill At Upper East Coast


A pretty popular bistro-like restaurant in the Siglap area. In fact I’ve read that its popular among celebrities like Radio DJ Rod Monteiro as well. BigFish Seafood Grill (like what the restaurant name mentions) serves mainly grilled seafood, in particular Fish.

Located slightly further up from the bustling eateries in Siglap, BigFish Seafood Grill offers a rather cosy and homely atmosphere with very friendly staff. They specialise in grilled fish, and the variety of fish dishes they have is really quite appetizing.

The founders of the restaurant Rosaline Lee and Lim Juat Kin were ex-HSBC bank officers, while the chef has a boastful resume of working in Raffles Hotel, and Marina Mandarin. The restaurant has also been featured in numerous publications like 8-Days, Asia Cuisine, and shows like Coffee Talk & Hawker Woks.

From the looks, it would seem like its an eat and go kinda place, where the business model is more for the Takashimaya shoppers to take a break. I for one wouldn’t have thought that they would serve decent, if not very good Italian spaghetti there! Continue reading

Terra Cafe At Vivocity

Located just outside the GV cinema entrance was Terra Cafe. It isn’t the appealing kind to me on first look, but I was desperate to find a place sit down, and chill from the extensive heat earlier. Continue reading
