Lighthouse Bistro is a humble, yet modern eatery that seems to specialise in seafood dishes. Since its inception in 2003, it's said to be an important social arm of Singapore Maritime Officers' Union and the maritime community at large".
Atlantic Prawns S$14.00
My BFF and I ordered the Chinese style Atlantic prawns as a starter. The bouncy and succulent quartet was cooked with fragrant garlic, chili flakes and black pepper, sitting on a pool of aromatic sesame oil. A bit of fresh leafy vegetables were added on top to add vibrancy to the colours.
Rib-Eye Linguine S$19.00
Tossed in tomato cream sauce, the linguine was pretty springy. While the sauce was tangy, I felt that it could be sweeter to balance out the sour taste. Australian beef was used as a topping, some pieces of which were pan-fried slightly too long, but no significant damage was incurred on the taste. The red meat could be juicier for sure.
East Atlantic Sea Perch S$23.00
Another catch from the Atlantic Ocean besides the prawns, the 200 g sea perch served on the table was fleshy, firm and juicy, testament to its fresh quality. It was sitting on top of garlic mashed potatoes and string beans. It could have more of the the red pepper sauce, which was slightly sweet.
PP Lighthouse Cake S$10.00
PP here stands for Pulau Pisang (lit. Banana Island) located within the borders of Malaysia, where there is a lighthouse operated by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. Inspired by that, the banana cake was amazingly moist and fragrant. It came with coconut ice cream, juxtaposed in texture by cookie crumbs.
Bird of Paradise S$5.80
The tropical mocktail was a delightful concoction of lime, orange and pineapple juice with grenadine syrup. On top of those ingredients, milk was also added to make the drink slightly rich and creamy. It was garnished with lime and maraschino cherry under the umbrella.
That's pretty much a hidden gem not too far away from Lavender MRT station. Pika's advice: It seems that the Chocolate and Caramel Cake, priced at S$13.00, is quite a hit among food bloggers. You may want to give it a try.
