Milkfish @ Millenia Walk - Scrumptious Grilled Whole Milkfish Belly And Wholesome Seafood Soup


Milkfish at Millenia Walk is the brand's second outlet, serving up slow-cooked seafood soup brewed in collaboration with Áo Broth. The soup has no MSG, dairy and preservatives. While its dairy-free yet milky broth is the main offering of Milkfish, what you shouldn't be missing out on is its Grilled Whole Milkfish Belly.

Grilled Whole Milkfish Belly 4.2/5

Milkfish is adored by many for its generous belly fat, especially so in Taiwan and the Philippines. Over at Milkfish, its Grilled Whole Milkfish Belly ($19 a la carte/$23.80 set) gets you an unctuous piece of grilled milkfish belly imported from Taiwan, served deboned. You may be more familiar with grilled salmon belly, and this is equally delicious with a dash of lemon juice and the sweet-savoury dipping sauce. Ideally, for my plate of milkfish, I would prefer it to be charred further to render the fats slightly more. A bowl of hearty Multigrain Rice will be an apt complement to its fatty goodness.

Signature Soup 4/5

The milkfish also forms the base of its signature soup with pork bones and fresh clams, attaining a milky emulsion and sweet taste. It eliminates the need to add any milk. The Signature Soup ($12.80) features sliced red snapper fish, chosen for its relatively sweeter taste and firmer texture than the usual Batang fish, a whole prawn and clams alongside tofu, vegetables and a housemade minced pork patty. You can also upgrade the red snapper to grouper for a more premium selection. Though it wasn't as rich as expected, the depth of flavour was undoubtedly there, and I love the elusive aroma of the Hua Diao Wine, which elevated the enjoyment of the soup.

Brown Rice Vermicelli

I had mine with Brown Rice Vermicelli, which brought out the sweetness of the soup. The entire bowl was pretty wholesome, just that the portion of the soup was a tad too small an amount for the lot.

Premium Soup Set 3/5

The Premium Soup Set ($32.80) uses the same soup base with additional seafood items, including half lobster, whole abalone and scallop. With such a price point, I expected the lobster's quality could be better. If you are in the mood for paofan, there's also an option for crispy rice on the menu.

Chilled Tofu with Century Egg 3.8/5

Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing 3.8/5

The Small Plates ($3 each) and Sharing Plates offered are worth a go, such as the Marinated Chilled Tomatoes, Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing, and the Chilled Tofu with Century Egg. A set meal includes two sides and a drink.

Deep Fried Prawn Rolls 4/5

For Sharing Plate, we tried the housemade Deep Fried Prawn Rolls ($6 for 4pc), which are very good with well-seasoned and juicy filling.
