I love buffets. And the only other thing I love more than buffets, is SEAFOOD all-you-can-eat! So I was happy as a clam when I received a food tasting invitation to the newly-opened Fisherman’s Market at The Central (near Clarke Quay). Occupying two floors, the first level houses a full bar and sidewalk patio where you can dine by the Singapore River, while the second level is where you can feast on seafood like there’s no tomorrow!
Fisherman’s Market is the first Japanese-Western seafood buffet joint in Singapore by Japanese-owned Create Restaurants Co., Ltd. The restaurant chain operates over 110 food establishments that straddled culinary concepts from both the East and the West.
Offering a gourmet spread that fuses the culinary specialties of the seven seas, the restaurant has an exhaustive volcabulary in introducing seafood to the palate. However, its grammar still needed to be improved.
Apart from seafood being served in every recipe imaginable (sashimi and sushi, Teppanyaki, Tempura, pizza Marinara, Vongole, tuna salad, seafood stir-fry, grilled Saba, poached prawns, steamed seafood dumplings, etc), some non-seafood dishes such as grilled ribs and cheese fondue are available too.
My favourite was the fresh, succulent oysters shucked on-the-spot by the chef. A friend calls them “oceanic testicles”. LOL. Prices for the buffet are as follows :
Mondays to Thursdays : S$39.90++ (Adult) / S$22.90++ (Child below 12yo)
Fridays to Sundays : S$49.90++ (Adult) / S$27.90++ (Child below 12yo)
