Chin Huat Live Seafood – Dinner

This post will be a bit different as it’ll be entirely without pictures. However, some dishes are too good to not be mentioned!

Lobster sashimi

It was fine, it was good, but personally I prefer other sorts of sashimi than this. The lobster sashimi was served on a huge bed of ice, with the lobster shell for display. The lobster shell had remaining meat which was to be cooked later on.

Drunken Prawns

The prawns were very fresh and cooked to perfection. It was firm and bouncy and was definitely one of the better dishes tonight.

Poached Prawns

Somehow, it wasn’t as good as the drunken prawns

Abalone with sea cucumber

No comments about the abalone but personally I loved the vegetable from this dish. The sauce was quite tasty too.

Hong Kong Steamed Soon Hock

This fish was decent but not outstanding

Cold vegetable with wasabi dipping

It was served on a bed of ice. The wasabi dipping was actually just like wasabi mixed homogenously with soya sauce, the Singaporean way when they have sashimi (something which I absolutely hate [for sashimi]!).

Black Pepper Crab (Sri Lankan)

Usually I do not take black pepper crab because I am not a fan of black pepper, or the taste of pepper to be exact, but this one was life changing! It wasn’t sauce-y, but the kind where the minimal dry sauce coats and sticks to the crab shell. The flavour was very tasty! It tastes just like steak sauce (ironically, I do not eat steak with sauce because good beef should not be insulted with sauce). I highly recommend this one!

Chili Crab (Snow Crab)

The crab was hairy and it was my first time eating this. The meat texture was indeed different from the Sri Lankan crab. The chili sauce was so-so only and not as outstanding as the black pepper crab’s.

Lobster (cooked)

The lobster meat was fresh and succulent.

Taro Paste

This was quite pleasant. It was given free with this meal.


Overall, the must orders are the drunken prawns and black pepper crab! This meal works out to be about $60/pax. The service was kind of slow, however, and they made a major mistake with the bill.


Ambience: 5.5/10

Food: 8.5/10

Value: 8/10

Overall: one of the better places for seafood, but do not expect a cosy dining experience unless you get the private room!
