East Coast Commune -Wallet-friendly and kid-friendly cafe opens at ECP!

Glad to finally see a legit looking 3rd wave / hipster cafe at East Coast Park. For the longest time, I’ve always hoped and prayed that there will be more of such cafes at East Coast Park. I mean don’t you agree that ECP has so much potential? Alas when Parkland Green opened in 2014, there was but 1 tiny ice cream cafe, which wasn’t very good either, and they are long gone.

When Marine Cove (where the ECP Mcdonald’s is) opened in 2016, again, no cafes. I don’t count Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf since they are a chain. But yes, finally in 2020 with Hill Street Coffeeshop vacating the middle outlet in the row of 5 outlets there, we now have East Coast Commune.

Pink Fish at Jewel Changi Airport – It’s all about salmon!

[Media Invite]

If you are at Jewel Changi Airport and looking for a kid-friendly restaurant to dine at, do check out Pink Fish. Pink Fish is a casual fast food chain from Norway specialising in salmon dishes. They offer burgers, poke bowls, a soup and sides. Although you have to order at the counter like at McDonalds, the poke bowls especially don’t look like fast food.

Pink Fish at Jewel Changi Airport - Crispy Cod Nuggets

They have recently pushed out a couple of kids dishes at pretty wallet friendly prices. They have this cod nuggets with potato chips that goes for $7.90. Add $4 to get a juice and ice cream from Obsessive Chocolat Desire Ice Cream Cafe. The cod nuggets look deep fried but they are actually grilled. Kids all just somehow gravitate towards nuggets, mine included, and it makes me feel more assured that while I’m giving my kiddo a meal that he loves, it is healthier than the average fried food. In case you think these cod nuggets look enticing, yes they are actually pretty good, relatively crisp exterior and actual fish encased within as opposed to some minced patty with minimal fish. In fact if you are a small eater, you could order that and perhaps a couple of sides as your meal.

Greenwood Fish Market opens at Valley Point

[Media Invite]

Greenwood Fish Market is going places! They have just opened a 2,700 sqft outlet in River Valley and this is on the back of a 4,100 sqft outlet at Quayside Isle Sentosa Cove opened in 2016. And guess what, they’re not stopping there either. A whopping 8,500 sqft outlet is set to be opened in Dempsey Hill by the end of this year, and finally one outlet in the East at Jewel Changi Airport come next year.

To think that this little seafood restaurant has stood the test of time, 10 plus years is a very good record for an F&B business in Singapore!  When I first visited back in 2007, it was so small I recall having to squeeze past numerous seafood refrigerators in order to access the main restaurant itself. But my boss at that time waxed lyrical about the place (and its $1 oysters on Tuesday) so we all wanted to go (and also because he was paying the bill).

I haven’t been back in years so it was good to be able to check out their new outlet at Valley Point Shopping Centre. The menu has obviously expanded over time and since I’m not the biggest of fish fans, I liked that is a wide selection of seafood dishes and meat dishes too. Fish lovers will obviously want to select a fish of choice and have it either pan seared, baked, steamed, chargrilled, battered or crumbed, and served together with vegetables and starch. Non-fish fans can go for seafood based pastas, burgers and even steaks.

Greenwood Fish Market - Chargrilled Mediterranean Squid $16 (1)

Chargrilled Mediterranean Squid with soba egg sauce $16.90

The small plates selection is worth looking at too and that’s where I felt like ordering everything. They have things like deep fried calamari, chargrilled Mediterranean squid, tuna poke bowl (why no salmon poke?), cold smoked salmon and swordfish carpaccio. Put 2 or 3 of these together and you have a meal sized dish! In fact, the chargrilled Mediterranean squid was so humongous, it could have been a meal on its own.
