Zealand

Gurney Drive is not the place where locals dine. It is more for tourists. However, there are a few places that have been around for as long as I can remember. These places are located at the other end of Gurney Drive, further away from the hustle and bustle of the hawkers area.

Zealand Seafood is one of the few decent places providing seafood at reasonable price.

It doesn’t serve pork but is not a halal joint, though.

This is the teochew-style steamed stingray. Teochew-style means seafood steamed with lots of preserved, salted vegetables, toufoo, mushroom, chillies, garlic, onions and coriander leaves. Normally, if we order cheaper fishes like stingray, teochew-style is the best as the strong flavours from the vegetables and chillies will mask the fishy smell.

This is a claypot of crabs with mung-bean noodles or tanghoon. The crabs flesh are extremely fresh and solid and make this simple dish delicious.

We went back to Zealand a few nights later to sample a few more dishes like the sweet and sour crabs, crispy cuttlefish, oyster omellete and salted prawns. More photos in the next post.
