Ocean fish head Toa Payoh

Had lunch with a few of my colleagues at the outlet of Ocean Curry Fish Head along Telok Ayer Street. They have this other outlet along Toa Payoh which packs in the crowds every day.

Fish Head Curry

This was undoubtedly the star attraction which drew us there. Although I don't really take take curry, I couldn't help but appreciate the freshness and sweetness of the fish meat as well as the slightly sourish and appetizing taste of the curry. However, at a pot, its a little pricey.

Stir Fried French Bean

I fancied this dish quite a bit. The beans were fried with dried shrimps and pepper, which gave it a nice slightly salty taste with a tinge of pepper. The beans weren't overcooked or undercooked as well. A great dish!

Sweet and Sour Porkchop

This was normal, but what I liked about it was that unlike normal sweet and sour pork, this cut was different and had little fats in it, making for a healthier eat.

Sliced Pork

The Braised Tofu was very normal, to the point that it became forgettable. The Sliced Pork, on the other hand, fared slightly better as the meat was slightly chewy due to the presence of bits of fats and thinly sliced, allowing the flavours to soak in.

Lunch for 6 pax cost $62, inclusive of drinks and rice. A little steep if you ask me, but the food is decent, so you might want to give it a shot.

The oceans are getting sicker. Hypoxia

2008-08-15 05:23:35 by fwiw

Like a chronic disease spreading through the body, "dead zones" with too little oxygen for life are expanding in the world's oceans.
"We have to realize that hypoxia is not a local problem," said Robert J. Diaz of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. "It is a global problem and it has severe consequences for ecosystems."
"It's getting to be a problem of such a magnitude that it is starting to affect the resources that we pull out of the sea to feed ourselves," he added.
Diaz and co-author Rutger Rosenberg report in Friday's edition of the journal Science that there are now more than 400 dead zones around the world, double what the United Nations reported just two years ago
