Best spots to get the fresh­est catch

As a pur­veyor of sus­tain­able prod­ucts, Clas­sic Fine Foods brings in in­gre­di­ents that are free from ad­di­tives, chem­i­cals, or ge­netic mod­i­fi­ca­tion. Some of the brands it rep­re­sent in­clude cara­bineros from Qwehli, the only com­pany that has the skills to fish for this red prawn; ob­si­blue, an ex­otic New Cale­do­nian blue shrimp; and pre­mium blue lob­ster from Rougié, the world’s lead­ing gourmet food store which uses the high­est qual­ity and source for the top pro­duce. What we love: the New Cale­do­nian blue prawns, which are reared in the heart of the South Pa­cific, New Cale­do­nian – in pure and crys­tal clear wa­ters of the largest la­goon in the world. The meat is firm and del­i­cate, fine and sub­tly flavoured. It is also lightly sweet­ened. It’s no sur­prise that many Miche­lin-starred restau­rants are us­ing them in their cre­ations, such as one Miche­lin-starred Ze Kitchen Ga­lerie. Sea­sonal prices. www.clas­sicfine­foods.com

In the same sprawl­ing com­pound as the Novo­tel Sin­ga­pore on Stevens Road, Seafood­bar & Mar­ket wel­comes cus­tomers with a brightly-lit and airy space of­fer­ing retail and dine-in op­tions. Opened by seafood dis­trib­u­tor Snorre Food, the retail sec­tion is where you can pick from a va­ri­ety of sea­sonal cold water seafood, both live and chilled. Adding to the con­ve­nience fac­tor is an in-house fish smoker, which is used to cure var­i­ous slabs of fish for take­away or din­ing in. If you pre­fer the lat­ter, sit by the seafood bar to en­joy the fresh­est bounty. Sea­sonal prices. #01-01, 30 Stevens Road.
