Food and drink
Red House prides itself on using only the freshest seafood. It’s known for it’s chili crab, a must try in Singapore. It’s served with a spicy, thick gravy, to be mopped up with sinful, white doughy buns. My mother-in-law loves the custard prawns, strange as it sounds, this is a creamy yet crispy prawn dish that’s surprisingly delicious (though I’m sure is horribly fattening).
This restaurant can get quite hot, despite the enormous ceiling fans. But overall there’s a buzzing, casual dining atmosphere.
I found the service to be attentive and prompt. It was a busy Friday night, but our plates were changed frequently and my teacup was frequently topped up.
Situated on the riverfront at Robertson Quay, Red House is surrounded by trendy restaurants and bars. It’s about a 10minute walk along the river from Clarke Quay MRT station.
Dishes are priced by plate sizes, so small, medium and large (though strangely it’s printed in reverse order on the menu) As is the case with most Chinese restaurants, green vegetables are quite expensive – roughly $20 for a large plate. Expect to pay at least $50-60 per person.
There's another branch at the East Coast Seafood Centre.
