#SGFNBHUB 1st Edition: Greenwood Fish Market

Written by: Shermane Eng | Date Published: 22 September 2020

As an added effort in our #SGFnBHUB initiatives, we here at Wine Clique will be visiting several restaurants in the local F&B scene, to recommend you the best! This first edition features local restaurant and seafood grocer: Greenwood Fish Market. Read on to find out which dishes stood out AND which wines to pair them with. 



Located in Quayside Isle on Sentosa Island, Greenwood Fish Market gives you the ultimate seaside dining experience with their sea to table concept. 

In spite of COVID-19 dining restrictions and safety measures, the restaurant was bustling with customers, whilst still ensuring a 1-metre safety distance between each table, amongst other safety precautions taken. 

Reservations are a must, and we recommend requesting a table outdoors, near the pier overlooking the yachts, so that you can catch the beautiful sunset over a mouthwatering meal. We arrived at the restaurant in the evening and business was in full swing!


 

WINE

Our wine choice for the meal was a bottle of Hunky Dory Sauvignon Blanc 2018 (89 Points Wine Spectator) – a flexible, crisp white wine with aromatic citrus flavours that we felt would go extremely well with our seafood dinner.

"Hunky Dory Sauvignon Blanc is succulent, offering tropical fruit notes packed with fresh gooseberry and lime flavours.

This wine has a full flavoured lingering finish and is designed to meet expectations of a true Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc." – Winemaker's notes

 

 


 

 

APPETIZERS

Kicking off the meal was the Grilled Mediterranean Squid ($21.95) that was charred beautifully with a crisp bite. 
The meat was tender, savoury on its own and served with a fried caper aioli with a tinge of sourness which complemented the dish wonderfully.

 

 


 

We also had the Truffle Fries ($12.95) that were light and crisp, not too oily. The truffle taste was not overpowering and had lightly shaved Parmesan. 

The Fried Calamari ($14.95) is a must in our opinion! The light batter was savoury, extra crispy, not thick at all, and did not mask the taste of the squid. The squid itself was tender and juicy, and truly enjoyable. 

 

 


 

MAINS

Moving on to the mains, we ordered the Porcini & Mushroom Risotto ($24.95). The taste of mushrooms was light in the sauce, although further enhanced by the king mushrooms in the dish. The texture of the dish was slightly more watery than your average Risotto, but still a light, enjoyable dish overall. 

Although Risottos are typically paired with more medium to full-bodied wines such as Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio, the Hunky Dory Sauvignon Blanc went surprisingly well with this dish. Perhaps it was the fruitiness and slight tinge of grassy notes in the wine that paired well with the mushrooms.

 

 

 

Lastly, we had the Pan-seared Cod Fish ($36.95) to complete our sumptuous seafood dinner. Cod is typically a medium-textured fish and goes well with a richer sauce, which was exactly how Greenwood prepared it. 

The cod was lightly seasoned and the dish was elevated by the rich, tangy sauce. Vegetables on the side were lightly salted, keeping the focus on the star of the dish – the cod. 



 


Greenwood Fish Market is a great place for date night or a gathering with friends and family, offering fresh, quality seafood and including rare varieties as well. Although the seafood is best enjoyed whilst dining in, Greenwood is also literally a fish market, selling the freshest offerings from their seafood beds. 

P.s. Greenwood Fish market’s 8th World Oyster Festival has been extended to 30th September! The event features 28 varieties of different merroirs from all over the world. Expect varieties such as the rare Canadian Belons, the classic French Gilardeaus and a new addition – the American Moonstone. Available a la carte or as a tasting platter at $99.95.
