Needed to make an early reservation for this place because it's ALWAYS FULL!!!! This is one of my favorite haunts as I've been a fan of this place since it used be in Happy Valley. It's open until late (2am) and the staff are very friendly and there's always someone ready to help you with your order.
My friend came in from Singapore and was craving oysters so of course we HAD come HERE!!! The oysters were super fresh and tasty!!! My favorite are the Kumomoto ones, small and sweet. My friend had some Coffin Bay, Irish Cream and something else....hmmm, forgot, sorry.
Next we has some conch and scampi which were really fresh, but the conch had no taste, you need to dip it into the wasabi/cocktail/vinigarette sauce to get some flavor
I figure that every meal needs veggies so we ordered a salad. The Ceasar is so good because the dressing they use is a little bit more tangy than most other restaurants and it leaves a good kick in your mouth after all the seafood. You know a restaurant is good when their croutons are fresh and crunchy, which is kind of funny because croutons are actually made from stale bread!!!!
The next dish is my ultimate favorite: Crabmeat dip with garlic toast!!!!! It's delicioso but was definitely paying the next day on the treadmill for another HOUR!!!! It is such a rich and creamy dip that you can't help but keep eating more!!!! One portion of garlic toast for the dip is just right, one piece less, you think, hmmmmmm maybe we should order more?? If you order more bread with no dip, then the cycle starts to order more dip and you could sit there for hours with the bread, dip and white wine.
The last dish we ordered were the mussels in cream sauce. Luckily the cream sauce is very light, you could almost drink it. The mussels were big and fat and a very, very healthy portion.
We washed all this food down with 3 bottles of white wine and had a very leisurely dinner, just chatting and catching up on girl gossip. The place was full until about 1030 and people started going home, but there were others that came in for the late supper crowd so it was constantly busy.
