OCEANS OF SEAFOOD at PasarBella serves a unique yusheng choice for diners who are bored by the traditional kind - its brand new CNY Seafood Yusheng in the Year of the Goat. What is so special about this yusheng is that it features fresh sashimi flown in from Tsukiji Fish Market!

Expect premium ingredients such as rock lobster, salmon sashimi and Amberjack sashimi, complementing with vegetables imported from Japan - red radish, white radish, Kyoto carrot, cucumber, fungus and seaweed.

The yusheng would also be tossed with eight unique offerings such as braised smelt fish, turnip pickles, tobiko and more.

We liked drizzling the creamy homemade sesame sauce to bring this lively yusheng together with a Chinese-Japanese fusion touch.

The yusheng set comes with a bottle of sake for a happy CNY toasting!

You can pre-order the set, which is available until 5 March 2015.




Apart from introducing its CNY yusheng, Oceans of Seafood also has Lunch and All-day Specials for seafood lovers.

For Lunch Specials, a total of seven pasta offerings infused with seafood available from S$12.80++:

OOS_pasta

Reminding us of Chinese soup noodle, this clam pasta served with spicy broth proved a little too much for the diners at the table. While the chef struck a bold approach to synthesize the western and asian elements, the flavours did not quite appeal to our palate. Some tweaks might be needed for the dish!

A much better serving, the pasta was topped with smoked salmon and creamy sauce. The accompanying cherry tomatoes came across really acidic with a sourish tang, which to a certain extent upset the overall balance to the dish.

A fan of mentaiko, I certainly welcome any forms of combination with it. While the sauce might look insufficient to give a good blend to the pasta when tossed, the strong saline flavours surely made an impact to our palate. The creamy and slightly grainy texture to the sauce however added a different dimension to the simple-looking dish.

It was a pity that there was just one crab leg and and did not help that the mussel I took was unopened. The prawns were in our humble opinion overcooked as it lost its elasticity, leaving the flesh dull and mushy. It however contributed to the natural sweetness of the broth which made us refill our bowls for second servings!


With hits and misses on the food, we were told that they are in the midst of finalising the lunch pasta menu, so do give them some time to tweak their recipes. Meanwhile, let's enjoy their exquisite Vibrancy of Life Yusheng in this joyful Chinese New Year! Since this is our first CNY post for the year, I wish our readers a prosperous Year of the Goat, 恭喜发财,身体健康,万事胜意!

 

Overall Verdict: 7.0/10
