This is huge with lots of parking space and the dining area is airy.This my fourth visit to Fish Village. Previous occasions have been leisurely, relaxing while eating good fresh seafood. However, this trip is marred by houseflies infestation in the area. It seems that chicken farms nearby were the main donors. I have to wave off dive bomber houseflies every ten seconds. I told the management that if I suffer the same fate in my next trip it will be my last!
As usual I go for soft-shell crabs, a steam fish, baby octopuses and a clam or snail dish. If I have more than 4 or more I would order steam prawns and lotus leave rice. The staff and not well trained or transient therefore inexperience. If you need to point go to the rear of the restaurant where the live seafood are. Just point.
Beautiful fresh soft-shell crabs. The meat was exquisite and the freshness shined through.
I ordered baby octopuses but got octopus' tentacles. There were blanched in hot water and there were 4 types of sauces to accompany the rather bland tentacles.
Grouper (kerapu). This 600gm beauty should taste succulent, firm with the premium sauces releasing the taste of the sea. It was over-cooked. It should never be steamed beyond the 10 minutes limit.
Finally, Murex. Escargot-like. Meat was firm and sharp toothpick was provided to easily dig out the meat.
