The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill is Singapore’s latest seafood destination, perched along the riverside at One Fullerton. Its trendy concept offers a beautiful selection of fish, molluscs, cephalopods and bivalves to be enjoyed in a modern environment — a chic alternative to Chinese-style seafood restaurants.
Spend a lazy afternoon with friends at the breezy alfresco area over cocktails and light bites.
You can also wind down at the handsomely appointed bar after a long day at work.
Complimentary sourdough bread is served here.
The lavish Pelican Platter comprises raw oysters, clams, crab, prawns, steamed whole Maine lobster and marinated conch salad, accompanied by lemon, cocktail sauce and mignonette dressing.
The natural sweetness of the prawns shines intrepidly, while the freshly shucked oyster boasts potent brininess that finishes with muted sweetness.
With ingredients so fresh that they speak for themselves, the flavours are effortlessly delicious.
The black peppered candied bacon provides familiar flavours to the Asian palates, reminding us of bak kwa (pork jerky). Tossed with crispy potato strips for crunch, one can snack on this all afternoon!
The cod’s tongue casserole is a shining star that leaves a lasting impression. Just in case you’re wondering, cod tongues are not tongues, but a small muscle from the neck of the fish. The roasted garlic imparts its aroma to the cod’s tongue, while the pork scratching amplifies the flavour content within the casserole. With such crisp exterior and tender interior, you won’t be able to resist seconds and thirds.
Another equally palatable option is the Rhode Island fried squid. The succulent chunks of squid are coated in a light, airy batter, and topped with green olive, capers and banana peppers. This dish is one of its kind.
Warm your bodies on a cold rainy day with the baked snapper pie. Nestled within the flaky puff pastry are chunks of snapper, asparagus and mushroom, which are doused in a delectable creamy sauce that has acquired its intense flavour after baking.
The only gripe would be the insufficiency of sauce, which one may like to soak the remaining pastry in.
The line-caught swordfish steak isn’t a remarkable dish due to its slightly dry texture, but the fresh herb vinaigrette and little pearls of pasta manage to salvage the dish.
For pure indulgence, the double chocolate whoopie pie will satisfy your chocolate cravings.
The lemon meringue mess is a deconstructed version of a lemon meringue pie with home-made graham crackers; this dessert is fun to eat and suitable for sharing.
A great way to end the meal is with something light on the stomach. The pina colada sherbet comes with a hint of alcohol, toasted coconut shavings and a noteworthy pineapple jam.
