Try creamy crab curry, masala mee goreng & more Indian-Mexican seafood at Seafood Paradise’s collab with Ms. Maria & Mr Singh

by Christabel Tan

If you enjoy Indian and Mexican flavours, and can’t get enough of anything seafood, this is one collaboration you can’t miss.

For the first time ever, popular seafood restaurant Seafood Paradise has teamed up with Ms. Maria & Mr. Singh by celebrity chef Gaggan Anand to launch a limited edition one-of-a-kind menu featuring Singapore-style seafood prepared with Indian-Mexican flavours.

There are six different dishes, all of which are available a la carte, so you can order a few to try, alongside the regular menu offerings.

Start off by slurping down the Fresh Jumbo Canadian Oyster (S$12.90++ per pc, minimum order of 2pcs), topped with crunchy pickled shallots, briny tobiko, and piquant salsa tacquera (a classic Mexican salsa typically served at taco stands).

As much as I enjoyed the complementary flavours (salsa and shallots are a win), these are pretty pricey, so not the most value-for-money, in my opinion.

Sambal fish lovers can go for the Baked Jade Perch with Tamale Masala Sauce (S$68.90++), which is marinated with an invigorating tamale masala sauce before being wrapped in banana leaf and baked till tender.

I particularly enjoyed the Stir-fried Live Tiger Prawns with Gaggan’s Crab Curry Base (S$29.90++), coated in an aromatic, finger-licking sauce infused with herbs and spices from Gaggan Anand’s crab curry.

If you tend to go for crab cooked with butter or salted egg yolk, look no further than Gaggan’s Crab Curry with Seafood Paradise Creamy Butter Mud Crab topped with Coconut Crumbs (S$128++).

The restaurant’s signature creamy butter sauce is taken up with the notch with the addition of crab curry — fragrant and sweet, with the slightest hint of spice — and perfect for mopping up with fried mantou.

I do like mee goreng, but the Seafood Paradise Mee Goreng with Ms. Maria & Mr. Singh’s Masala served with Papadum (S$25.90++), though generous with the seafood, was a tad too sweet for my liking.

But if you can only order one thing from this entire collab, let it be the Grilled Squid with Salsa Taquera (S$28.90++). The zingy salsa taquera pairs wonderfully with the squid, which is grilled till sweet, smoky, and tender, with none of that off-putting rubbery texture you sometimes get.

All things considered, if you have friends and family who are not familiar with Indian or Mexican cuisine, this would be a good place to start.

Do note that these dishes will be available for a limited time only at all Seafood Paradise outlets from now till 17 December 2023, so don’t wait too long before heading down for a taste!
