The Mussel Guys

A Blessed Christmas to all. May this Christmas be a meaningful season for you. Season of feasting? ;) Haha.

Thought that most Christmas lunches would be of turkey, ham and beef. Hence, wanted to try out something different. Went with Dino and Eds to a mussel place in Vivocity. Rather crowded.

Was quite hungry, so i started with soup. Tried the chef's recommendation - Chowderful Mussel Soup. Nothing much to rave about, its just soup with a mussel sticking out.

3 of us shared 3 different types of mussels.
Steamed Mussels. Tasty with white wine sauce. And i think all of us are addicted to the alcohol in it! ;)

Sambal ones. This has lots of garlic.

Baked Cheese ones. This actually goes well with the sambal sauce from above.

It was quite a musselful lunch. I quite like the steam ones best.

Happy Holidays to all!

woah, looks real good. How's the price like? And are the mussles fresh (no strange 'fishy' smell)?

Mussels are darn cheap here.. unfortunately i donch have a good recipe.. except to bake them in butter.. which i find too rich.. :(

Funny when I was there for lunch some weeks back, there was absolutely no mussels in their set lunch menu. Kind of wondered what sort of mussel speciality they had. :)

steamed mussels with white wine is simple and yet yummy. So easy to make them at home too. =)
