Fremantle Seafood Market – Clarke Quay

It’s a New Year and we wanted to start out with some seafood.  Fremantle Seafood Market has been on my radar for a bit, because it sounded like a fresh place for seafood.

Located at Clarke Quay, I wondered if it was just a tourist trap or if it had some value.

Soft Shell Crabs, Oysters, Mussels and Clams, Steamed Prawns and Baby Octopus.img_0259 The flavors weren’t bad.  The Baby Octopus stood out for me, the Soft Shell Crab a little overdone.  The Prawn a little plain, the Oysters a little salty, and the Mussels and Clams had a nice broth that got more peppery as it sat there.

Would I do this again?  Probably not.  The cost is for what you see below — the view of Clarke Quay and the Singapore River.img_0256It’s definitely a premium for the spot and yes, it’s a touristy trap.
