Mussel Guys Seafood & Steak Restaurant
It’s been ages since I met up with Elaine, Hui Qing and Sharon as a whole group since we graduated from VJ. Finally, we managed to find a common time after weeks of postponement.
Dinner was at Mussel Guys where their set dinners come with a soup of the day, a choice of several main courses and coffee or tea. Our soup was the ubiquitous cream of mushroom which was nothing outstanding. I suspect that they use the canned Campbell instead of making it from scratch.
Elaine and I had the Oven Honey Baked Salmon ($15.90++). Usually, it’s served with rice but we requested for it to be replaced with more vegetables. The salmon was not overcooked and still retained its fatty juices. The taste reminds me of honey baked ham—just that this is salmon instead of ham. One thing I don’t like is the small pool of oil beneath the fillet. Otherwise, I can’t find any other fault with the dish.
The Grilled Chicken and King Prawn ($15.90++) comes with a side serving of vegetables and mash potato. There was only one prawn but the portion of chicken was quite large. The chicken was tender enough and the marinade made it aromatic.
Wild Mushroom in Cream Sauce Spaghetti ($10.50++) is a simple pasta dish. The mushrooms were quite fresh generous. But Hui Qing said that the cream sauce made it overwhelmingly nauseous after some time. That’s the reason why I always order tomato sauce based pasta since I don’t trust myself to finish a cream sauce one.
Service was slightly below average. The waiter who took our orders was unsmiling while the one who served our meals was shaking visibly as he placed our food in front of us. To be fair, he’s probably a trainee who needs more practice. Overall, the food itself is nothing memorable but value for money, I guess.
P.S. I apologize for the lack of photos for this post as I accidentally deleted them. Do use your imagination in picturing how the food look like!
