Bamboo structures made up most of the furnishing in Fisherman’s Cove, with transparant fishing sails, opened kitchen and a wide array of seafood selection to rival the Meditterranean Sea.

Seeing the freshness of this huge mud crab, the chef recommends us to have it steamed in soy sauce. Light with minimal seasoning, the outcome may be a little pale comparing to Chilli Crab or Buttermilk Crab, but we enjoy savouring the most original sweetness of this fresh meaty crab, packed with juiciness too.

For dessert, it will also be recommendation from the host, including the outlet’s signature banana fritters with ice cream, a favourite among regulars at Fisherman’s Cove.
