CAPTAIN K SEAFOOD TOWER

Hello my fellow foodies, so sorry I have been inactive for a year!! I have not stopped eating, just stopped posting because of my busy schedule. I promise to make an effort to come back posting again. Been to many many many many many many many (oh well, you get what I mean) food places this 1 year and I can't wait to post all at one go!!
But all in all, one place kept lingering in my mind and I just have to share it first.

CAPTAIN K SEAFOOD TOWER
30 Princep St, #01-02, Income @ Princep, Singapore 188647
Operating hours:
Mon - 6pm to 10.30pm
Tue to Thurs - 12pm to 3pm, 6pm to 10.30pm
Fri - 12pm to 3pm, 6pm to 11pm

Sun - 11.30am to 3pm, 5pm to 10.30pm

A Korean-style seafood place.
Sorry for the poor resolution of the photos as there are taken from my Samsung S6 phone.
Typical as it is, the place is blast with all sort of K-Pop MVs you can know of
The menu recommends you how many tier is suitable for how many pax for consumption.

Presenting to you the signature 9-tiers seafood tower
1st tier: Shellfish (Clams & Mussels)
 2nd tier: Prawns
 3rd tier: Shellfish (Oysters)
For a fan of oysters, but these are pretty good!!
4th tier: Crustacean (Lobsters)
 5th tier: Crustacean (Crabs)
6th tier: Squid
The squid is wrapped over fragrant stick yam rice
 7th tier: Prawns
 8th tier: Scallops
The scallops are cooked with garlic and placed nicely on top of a lump of glass noodle
 9th tier: Soup base (Premium Korean Ginseng Chicken + $15)
There are other soup bases for you to choose from, Kombu Dash & Korean Kimchi
When you reached the last tier which is the soup base, it is more like a steamboat style where you can choose from a variety of colour-plated dishes at the fridge display for you to add into your soup. However, we are so full that we did not have space in our tummy to eat anymore stuff. We just drank the soup as it is and what is more important, it is REFILLABLE!

You know when you hang out for lunch with such a big group of people, sometimes not everyone will like a certain dish on the table? But NOOOO! I went with my group of 10 pax and for the first time everyone LOVES every single dish. Yes let me repeat, everyone of us love every single dish. All the dishes are so fresh and yummy, and it is very reasonable and affordable after you divide out the cost for the recommended tier for the number of pax.
So if you are a seafood lover, this is definitely a place you HAVE TO try it out!!!

BACKSTAGE CAFE

When mention about the word 'Cafe', the first thing that came to mind is crowded, packed, long waiting hours, noisy. But among all this cafe craze, I am thankful to find a cafe that is located away from the busy city in the smaller suburb where i can truly get to enjoy the cafe experience.

How does a cafe in the industrial estate sound to you? Some would react with wide unconvincing eyes or worries about the ease of getting there. But well, this cafe is totally different. Accessible by bus, complimentary parking for drivers, tall ceiling, spacious and most importantly, you get to enjoy your meal with peace.

Opened in mid 2013, the cafe undergo a revamp in early 2014 to give customers a more comfortable dining experience.

After writing your order on the order sheet, bring the order sheet to the counter to make your payment. Let the cashier know if you are driving and they will issue you a complimentary parking ticket.
