Red House Seafood

In this country which the seafood scene is highly competitive (Think: Jumbo, Long beach, Palm beach, No signboard, Mellben), and every establishment strives to have the best national dish aka chilli crab, surviving one year in the industry is an accomplishment, ten years warrants a fireworks display.

So it's interesting that a relatively unknown (at least to me) such as Red House has been around since 1976. It was upon a chance that I passed by Red House along Prinsep Street which has become a thriving breeding spot for gaming shops, pubs and ktv. 

When I saw Red House, I thought it was a real house (no pun intended). A double story terrace house with a courtyard. The courtyard of the restaurant was big enough to host your banquet/war victory/whatever party. 

For those who can only survive in low humidity and < 30 Deg Celsius conditions, indoors would be the wiser choice. There were also private rooms that can cater about 40 pax on the second floor.

Sorry if I misled you into thinking this is a post about crabs, prawns, fish. I have a bad habit to go off-topic. In the end , we opted for some simple dishes instead of seafood. 

Starter was spinach tofu & mushroom ($14++, below) - the lightly fried and crispy tofu was coated in a secret mushroom sauce and topped with real mushrooms and crisp conpoy. The fragrance of the mushrooms coupled with the savoury tofu made this was a hearty and tasty dish. 3.75/5

Thai sauce fried chicken with mango slices ($14++, below) - Pieces of fried chicken which were generously coated with flour were crispy and the Thai sauce was spicy enough to give this dish a fiery kick. Mango slices gave a sour touch to the dish. 3.75/5

Braised Ee fu noodles with assorted mushrooms ($12++) - The flat thin noodles were cooked al dente and the mushrooms gave this dish a tasty flavor. I thought it was a little dry for my liking but my companion seemed to love it.  3.5/5

The service staff were friendly and attentive. Most of them appeared to be old aunties and uncles and they were quite jovial: But I wished the serving speed would be faster. Especially when I was really hungry :p
