Gills N Shells ~ Modern European Seafood Restaurant Bistro

New food addiction to the Lavender area. Situated within the vicinity of Hotel Boss, Gills N Shells is right beside the hotel, overlooking the Rochor River.

It is not in the hotel itself, but outside and beside Char-Grill Bar.

Owners of Gills N Shells have taken great consideration to the placement of the bistro, as well as the decoration and food preparation to diners.

Gills N Shells does not have indoor seats, but outdoors are great too as it is able to shelter diners from the unpredictable weather , and most importantly, diners won't really feel the heat. Rather it is quite cooling.

Calling itself a seafood restaurant, there is definitely a menu of reasonable range of seafood dishes to choose from. In addition to the vast variety of alcohol such as beer, spirits, cocktails and wine.

One of the must-try and definitely to order again on my next visit is the Clams & Mussels. Comes with a little spiciness, the clams and mussels are cooked in spicy white wine clear broth with herbs, garlic onions & chilli or smoky herb tomato garlic sauce.

One of the most important quality to have in a seafood restaurant is the freshness of the seafood. Gills N Shells certainly did not disappoint us on this! Both the clams and mussels are juicy and tender. It does not have much of a raw seafood taste which is another plus point!

The sauce is definitely sweet and tasty, which in Chinese restaurants will be a hit to drizzle on your rice. Although there is no rice, this dish comes along with the crispy focaccia toast which is for dipping in!

Chicken Wings which is the chef's recipe of fried juicy wings.

Pan Seared Scallops that is served with herb butter sauce. You can feel the bounciness of the scallop as you bite, which truly indicate the freshness!

Lobster Meat Pasta in Chilli Crab Sauce. 

Gills N Shells new addition to menu is the Hae-Bee-Hiam Pasta with Soft Shell Crab. This in fact is a little different from the Crab Meat pasta, as it is a little dry in comparison. But the unique taste of the spicy dried shrimp is hard to find anywhere else!

Not forgetting to try their signature dessert Gills N Shells Tiramisu Jar. All tiramisu contains alcohol, and this is Gills N Shells is no exception. The moist in the tiramisu is of acceptable range, and all agreed in unison to the wonderful ending to the dinner.

Gills N Shells has also invested a lot of effort and money into their research and development, and consistently trying out new creations, ensuring a regular adjustment to the food menu and the high quality of food served.

Besides just serving food and drinks to diners, Gills N Shells also allow hosting of private events and other promotions such as happy hours, oysters night and even girls' night out!

Overall, it is worth re-visiting for their food and peaceful ambiance at night. Great that the MRT is just a few minutes away, giving the drinkers an excuse to indulge and be more environmentally friendly?
