Honouring Singapore’s culinary legacy, Seafood Paradise opens its newest outpost at Clarke Quay, flanked by the relaxing view of the Singapore River. A shining emblem of the Paradise Group, this local favourite has been delighting seafood enthusiasts since 2002 with an inventive suite of Singapore-style dishes.

Seafood Paradise began its journey as an unassuming 25-seater coffee shop at Defu Lane, growing exponentially owing to its compelling repertoire of tantalising, locally-inspired seafood creations. With the opening of the Clarke Quay branch, patrons can relish in familiar yet elevated distinctive seafood dishes.

Signature Dishes
As I saw the range of seafood swimming around in the huge tanks, I immediately asked where the crabs were from. Afterall, no visit to Seafood Paradise is complete without sampling its popular Signature Creamy Butter Sri Lankan Crab ($10.80 per 100g). This delectable creation, boasting a beautiful blend of curry leaves, white pepper, lemongrass, and chilli padi-infused sauce, takes centre stage with firm, sweet-savoury Sri Lankan crab meat accentuated by a topping of coconut crumbs. I must emphasise here that the Sri Lankan crabs were incredibly fleshy, even in the body and legs. Those that did not manage to get a claw did not have a difficult time extracting the chunks of white flesh from other parts of the crab.

However, if you prefer something more classic, equally compelling is the Singapore-style Chilli Crab ($10.80 per 100g). The dish presents sumptuous Sri Lankan mud crabs drenched in a harmonious combination of sweetness, spiciness, and tanginess. The Chilli Crab is not complete without golden brown fluffy mantous, a must to mop up every last drop of the scrumptious sauces.

Introducing New Creations
Not a crab lover? Don’t fret. The customer favourites extend to the Baked Jade Perch with Sea Salt (S$8.80 per 100g) – a plateful of delicate, freshwater fish lightly seasoned with sea salt. Served with a side of green chillies, it highlights the Jade Perch’s unmistakable freshness.

A good way to identify the skill of a seafood restaurant is to see how the non-seafood dishes fare. We were not let down by the thoughtfully prepared Crispy Phoenix Chicken ((S$23.80 half, S$46.80 whole), another highpoint of our gastronomic exploration. An ode to home-style cooking, the preparation involves careful deskinning, drying, and frying the chicken skin to a stunning crisp, followed by an array of minced chicken and squid. It’s a testament to their commitment to quality, as each piece of chicken skin yields only two portions.
