MOOther's Day Dinner

For Moother's Day, family decided to head to somewhere with good crabs (mum loves crabs) and a near-by home location. We ended up at House of Seafood @180 which I first blogged about here and being a rather big place, it felt spacious and not too crowded. Nice! 

To start the meal, we had a bowl of Seafood Fish Maw Soup ($15). Nothing like a hot bowl of soup to start the meal off though this soup itself was just okay.  

The Chilli Crab ($75 for the above) was pretty good. I like that the gravy was not too sweet and in fact had a good chili kick! The crab was meaty and fresh too.

Since it was Moother's Day, we decided to have lobster too. Moohehe. The Rainbow Lobster ($110) was sliced and served as sashimi. Very firm, sweet slivers to lobster. Yums! For those not into sashimi, they also serve a pot of stock steamboat-style for you to dunk your lobster slices. This was also a very good way to enjoy the natural flavours of the crustacean. Pity about the presentation...

The rest of the lobster head was used in a noodle dish ($10). Very delicate savoury flavours of both the lobster and Chinese chives.

A simple Stir-Fried Nai Bai ($12) were the evening's greens.

Then we saw the neighbouring table ordering this. Greedily Curious about it, we ordered some too. LOL. The Pork Ribs with Honey Sauce ($6.50) were scrumptious! Tender, meaty, sweet with a deep, roasted savoury flavour. Now I wish there was a bak kut teh stall with pork ribs this size! :p

Happy Moother's Day to all mums out there! Your sacrifice and love go beyond words.
