The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill, Singapore…a diamond in the rough

 I love the decor. It is fabulously casual, yet elegant enough with its warm and sleek interior  mix of red-orangy leather booths, quirky light fixtures and black and white-tiled flooring. In the coller eveing, I can imagine their alfresco deck with a view of the waterfront would be quite nice too.

The black peppered candied bacon drizzled with lime, resembles the our local bak kwa  but with much more crunch and flavour. And like the bak kwa, you won’t be stopping at just one piece. The Old fashioned crab cakes is crab-ilicious. I’ve had more than my share of crab cakes when i was in washington DC recently but this two-cake dish has lots of filler, but it meshes nicely with the meat to create an almost sweet flavour. The hot toffee bread pudding was really tasty. Soft, fluffy and flavourful. Every bite was very satisfying. However, I was not so impressed with the lobster thermidor which was was slightly overcooked and was a bit tough but still good in flavour.

If it was way less expensive, it’d be a true diamond in the rough. This is the true truth because I say it as it is…
