NUDE Seafood has a perpetual long queue during peak dining hours so we headed down for an early lunch so as to avoid the crowd.
I ordered their Bara Chirashi and my other half ordered the Seafood Paella. Here’s their full menu.
The fresh and buttery cuts of Aburi salmon sashimi with their pillowy tamago-yaki complemented that perfectly cooked Niigata sushi rice. The addition of Furikake, Ebiko and cucumber enhanced this delicious dish with distinct textures and layers of flavours. For me, the highlight of this dish is definitely the egg (tamago-yaki) because tamago-yaki in Singapore tend to be as overly sweet and dense. The tamago-yaki here is fluffy with the right amount of sweetness.
With a bed of Bomba rice from Valencia (province of Spain) topped with 2 huge tiger prawns, manila clams, squid and confit tomato – this Seafood Paella did not disappoint. The rice is slightly charred with a crispness from the heat and each mouthful of that rice is packed with robust seafood flavours. The seafood was exceptionally fresh and I particularly liked the confit tomato that offered acidity and sweetness to relief the savoury tones of the paella.
We wanted to have something sweet so we gave the Strawberry Matcha Tiramisu a try (Apologies the picture focus is a bit off here). I am not a fan of Matcha but my hubby is. He definitely enjoyed the dessert more than me. I am not fond of the combination of strawberry with matcha as it is a bittersweet-sour profile that didn’t match my expectations of a tiramisu.
We were sneakily looking at what others were having and their Duo of Salmon and Snapper looked really good. We really enjoyed our meal (the mains mostly) and can’t wait to return and try more of their food. Highly recommend making reservations if you are heading down for dinner but for lunch, they take only walk-ins so be early!
