I love my crabs, lobsters, prawns, fish, everything seafood! When Carrie invited us for a tasting at The Boiler, I immediately said yes! :) The Louisiana-inspired restaurant is located within the industrial area of Tai Seng. The restaurant’s decor I believe, was inspired from the location and had a modern industrial feel to it. A gem in the estate, it’s definitely a great eatery option for executives who are working nearby, or even seafood lovers like me! :heart:
We had some drinks to start the meal with. Lime-Mint Freeze (S$5.90) and Beerita (S$11.90) are my favourite. Beerita is a mixture of margarita + beer, what an ingenious idea! We also had the Lemonade (S$4.90) and Beerjito (S$9.90) to quench our thirst. :)
Spam Fries (S$7.90), made from luncheon meat is oh-so-delicious. Never been a fan of luncheon meat but it was fried till extra crispy. We also had Sweet Potato Fries (S$6.90) to snack on.
We had a sampling platter of Bacon Shrimp with Hickory BBQ Sauce (S$11.90), Southern Chicks and Waffles with Maple Syrup (S$9.90) and Louisiana Spicy Mid Joint Wings (S$8.90). My favorite out of the 3 would be the mid joint wings, which was coated with a tangy and spicy sauce, extremely appetizing.
The Signature Half Lobsicle (S$15.90) and Fish & Chips (S$12.90) were nicely battered. I love the idea of the Lobsicle, which was created by the creative people of The Boiler where you can eat the lobster like a popsicle, hence the name!
Now here comes the highlight of the day! Packed in a bag, the seafood items were boiled and cooked in various sauces like The Works, Garlic Butter and Peppa’ Butter. You can even customize the level of the spiciness which comes in Mild, Medium and Ragin’ Hot! Would be perfect if they were slightly more spicy! :)
We had Boiler’s Bombdiggity Bag (S$139/4pax) cooked with The Works, which is a cajun sauce. There were clams, mussels, crabs, prawns, corn, sausages, just lots of seafood!
We tried Garlic Butter as well which had a milder taste but still aromatic and delicious.
The humongous Boston Lobster stole the limelight, with its bright red shells and juicy tender meat! The usual price was S$75 and they had a promotion going at S$49 per lobster, do call them to check if it’s still ongoing!
The meal ended with Chocolate Molten Lava Cake! :heart:
Seafood lovers, don’t miss out on The Boiler!
