Nude Seafood @ Marina One - It Is Not All About Seafood Here, The Non-Seafood Dishes Are Delicious Too


I decided to drop by Nude Seafood at Marina One for a weekend lunch to get myself out of the house for a change from all the food delivery. We decided to go for the Feast For 2 priced at $98, which comes with 2 Starters, 2 Mains, 1 Side, 1 Dessert and 2 Drinks. While the menu is extensive, the choices are pretty limited for the feast for 2 unless you top up for most of the dishes.

Kale & 'Ma Haw' 4.2/5

For the starters, we go for the Kale & 'Ma Haw'. I am not a big fan of kale, but this version is exceptionally addictive. The Thai pork dressing brightens up the earthy flavour while adding pomelo and mint gives it a refreshing touch, finished with nuttiness and texture from the peanut.

Clam in White Wine 4.2/5

The other starter we choose is Clam in White Wine. We have to add an extra $6 for it. The sweet and juicy clam accentuate by the confit garlic, and wine broth is worth the extra dollar. It even comes with sourdough to soak up the delicious broth.

Nude's Rosti 4/5

For the side, we had the Nude's Rosti. I like the charred edges for their crispiness.

Young Chicken 4.2/5

It is not all about seafood here. I tried the Young Chicken, which comprises coriander emulsion, nameko, daikon, chicken fat aioli, Sansho and sourdough crisp. What stood out for me was the dark-coloured sauce which complemented the grilled tender chicken excellent. If I am not wrong, the dark coloured sauce is some squid ink concoction.

Miso Halibut & Udon 4.2/5


The other main we had is the Miso Halibut & Udon. I love the chewy texture of the sanuki udon in the refreshing mushroom dashi broth. Not forgetting the grilled halibut, which has a delectable buttery flavour further enhanced by the sweetness of the miso.

Daifuku Mochi 3/5

Wrapping up our dinner is Daifuku Mochi. It comes in a sweetened filling, but the texture is gelatine like instead of the chewy type, which I didn't enjoy.



While the Feast for 2 Pax at $98 seems quite value for money, the choices are pretty limited unless customers decide to add on extra for more options on the menu. Before my visit, I thought Nude Seafood forte was on seafood, but the non-seafood dishes I had were as delicious.

Udon Kamon @ Eat At Seven (Suntec City Mall) - Singapore's First-ever Tricoloured, All-natural Udon Offerings


For this warm summer, Udon Kamon at Suntec City Mall is offering the new tricoloured chilled udon, a first of its kind in Singapore. Each bowl comes with Udon Kamon's original white udon, green matcha udon and red chilli udon, made with natural ingredients. With the tricoloured chilled udon combined in one bowl, Chef Kamogi Noriyuki has created three offerings - Mentai Maze Udon, Beef Shabu Shabu Bukkake Udon and Uni Maze Udon.

Mentai Maze Udon 3/5

The Mentai Maze Udon ($12.80++) features the tricoloured chilled udon. The green matcha udon is made with Uji matcha from Kyoto while the red chilli udon is made with Korean chilli powder. It is paired with mentaiko, onsen tamago, seaweed and spring onions. Break the egg and mix everything together, allowing the silky egg white to coat the spicy cod roe on every strand of the chewy noodle. It is light and refreshing, perfect for the summer weather.

Uni Maze Udon 3.8/5

Diners with a heavier palate may go for the Uni Maze Udon ($19.80++) with the tricoloured chilled udon resting in a pool of luscious uni sauce. It is topped with creamy and savoury sea urchin from Hokkaido. It actually tasted like a plate of creamy and rich pasta, except that I could not really detect the uni in it.

Beef Shabu Shabu Bukkake Udon 4/5

The last offering for the tricoloured udon is the soup version Beef Shabu Shabu Bukkake Udon ($13.80++). The cold udon noodles are drenched in a chilled dashi sauce and topped with tender beef short plate from Australia. This is my favourite among the 3 new creations, for its refreshing and sweet note, that complement the chewy udon.

Smoked Duck Udon 4.2/5

Not into chilled udon, one can always go for their signature udon such as the Smoked Duck Udon ($11.80++). I felt that the texture of the Sanuki udon fares better in the hot wafu broth made with dashi stock. I also like the addition of yuzu peel, which imparts a citrusy aroma to the finishing. It also comes with succulent pinkish smoked duck that is specially air-flown from Italy.

Nestled in Eat At Seven, Suntec City Mall, Udon Kamon doles out sanuki udon, the most popular type of udon in the Shikoku region. Made freshly with Japanese wheat flour, salt and water, the noodles are thick, squarish and have flat edges. It also comes with a chewy textural bite, which is really delightful.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
