Striped Bass Fillet ($36)
I was drawn to The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill to take advantage of the Entertainer once again. This time round, I saved almost $100, which already covers the cost of the app itself ($57 for a limited time period/usual price $95).
The hardcopy of the Entertainer comprises thousands of buy-one-get-one-free coupons that you can use at participating dining outlets, fitness and spa, hotels and more.
I have already ordered the Entertainer 2014 through the app. Have you?
Having visited The Pelican almost a year ago for a food tasting session, I’ve been meaning to return. I remember the dining experience to be resplendent.
I managed to make a last minute reservation through HungryGoWhere, and had gotten a confirmation email within minutes.
The Pelican Salt Cod Brandade with Warm Tomato Vinaigrette ($16)
I tried the Cods Tongue Casserole during my previous visit, and I was desperately craving for it, only to be disappointed that it no longer has a place on the menu, and is replaced by the Salt Cod Brandade with Warm Tomato Vinaigrette, served in miniscule tapas-portion bite sizes.
Old Gashioned Crab Cakes with Quick Pickle Slaw ($22)
Crab cakes packed generously with crabmeat, seared on both sides, arrive sitting on a puddle of tartar sauce, which gave me no choice but to have the crab cakes with the condiment. I would have loved to enjoy the crab cake on its own. The sauce was overpowering and did little justice to the quality of the crabmeat, if it was even pristinely fresh to begin with.
The Daily Catch – Paper-Wrapped (Seasonal pricing – $42)
The Daily Catch was Golden Trout during my visit. You can choose from a selection of cooking methods in which you would like your fish to be cooked: Paper-Wrapped (baked in parchment paper), Cedar-Plank (roasted on aromatic wood), Inferno Pot (simmered in a fiery sauce), and Clam-Baked (mixture of grilled seasonings added to a cast iron pot and steamed in kelp).
I am bent on having the fish done in a way that would highlight the freshness and quality of it, thus Paper-Wrapped was an obvious choice. With just a touch of herbs, pepper, salt, olive oil and lemon, the fish is baked to the right doneness, moist and tender; and I dug in greedily like an oversized kitten.
Skate Wing Chop with Burnt Lemon butter ($36)
The stingray is substantially meaty, in fact it is one of the biggest portion of stingray I’ve had, but a tad too lightly seasoned for my liking. Being a typical Asian Singaporean, I still love the sambal stingray that I grew up eating.
Baked Snapper Pie ($38)
From the first time I had the Baked Snapper Pie, it persists in my food memory bank as one of my favourite dishes of all time. Ordering it again is not only a necessity for my undying hankering; I felt compelled to order this so I could share the love with my dining companion who has not tried this before.
Underneath the fluffy and buttery puff pastry lies a creamy stew loaded with huge chunks of deboned snapper, along with some asparagus and mushroom. This dish is deeply comforting.
The Entertainer is the perfect solution to those with huge appetites too. You can now order double portions and pay for just one!
