For Farm Fresh Seafood in Haji Lane

Started by fish farm and wholesaler Ah Hua Kelong, this restaurant in Haji Lane (it shares space with hip cocktail bar Bar Stories) is perfect if you're in the mood for a seafood feast. Consider starting with the Curry Mussels ($16 with deep-fried mantou, $18 with pasta). The mussels are plump and fresh, and the gravy certainly made an impression on Burpple Tastemaker Amanda Liu, who declared she would gladly drink it all down. Take Tastemaker Zhihui Lim's advice to go for the mantous, which are great for mopping up all that luscious curry. Another interesting dish is the Confit Seabass ($20), served on a base of hummus. The fish, like most of the seafood here, was super fresh and cooked in a way that offered a hint of plum-like sweetness. Mix things up with an order of Braised Beef Shin ($22), fork-tender yet retaining a good bite, served with torched potato mash, broccoli and crisp barley chips. If you fancy a tipple, the bartenders at Bar Stories would be happy to shake up a bespoke cocktail for you (average price $20-$25).
Avg Price: $60 per person
