Easties who are also dog owners will be very pleased to find this hidden gem at The Cove located along Pasir Ris Park.

Facing the coast directly, enjoy an uninterrupted sea view and cooling breeze while indulging in cajun-style seafood boil at Georges @The Cove, a resort-style restaurant.

While the restaurant is located in an open air space, it is fully sheltered from the scorching heat.

New seafood menu

Georges’ new seafood menu pays tribute to the humble beginnings of their outlet in Pasir Ris Park. The neighbourhood used to be full of life, with Fisherman’s Village at the heart of it all. Hence, including seafood in their revamped menu is a way of bringing back that good old ‘kampong’ spirit of the community.

Pimpin’ Prawns ($19.9) — a simple delish appetiser to start off your meal. Nothing over the top, just fresh prawns topped with kombu butter and garnished with spinach and tomato, giving it a blend of sweetness and saltiness.

For a sharing platter, the Fisherman’s Adventure with Lemon Garlic Butter ($69.9) consists of mussels, prawns, clams, squid, sausage and corn cob. Diners can also order this platter with the sweet and spicy sauce instead. The portion is meant for 3-4 pax

The platter was delicious on the whole, but the standout item was the battered squid. Every bite of the crispy squid was so pleasurable and addictive.

Don’t belittle the lemon garlic butter sauce as it’s the piece de resistance of the dish — buttery and cheesy with an aromatic pungent flavour from the garlic.

The Clam Ala Vino ($18.9) was served in a white wine sauce broth topped with garlic and garlic bread on the side for dipping. The sauce was extremely flavourful but make sure you skip drinking the sauce! Don’t make the same mistake like me as it was quite salty to consume directly.

If you enjoy fish and chips in general, this is an upgraded version of what is usually served in normal restaurants. Instead of the usual fish fillet, the Beer Battered Cod & Chips ($24.9) was prepared with a tender and juicy codfish, coated with a thin battered crispy layer that wasn’t tough or dry.

Quality coffee in partnership with MO Cafe

Georges also serves an extensive variety of drinks ranging from mocktails and alcoholic beverages to coffee and tea.

The Iced Mocha ($7.9) was unlike any others. Mochas are typically sweeter, rounding out the astringency of the espresso base. But the ones from MO Cafe had a strong kick of coffee amidst the richness of the cocoa powder.

If you have a sweet tooth, I recommend the Nitro Float ($8.9) — nitro cold brew with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Georges uses a single origin coffee bean from Gayo, Indonesia, which is smokey in nature. However, once the cold brew is ‘nitro-ed’, the smokey notes disappeared, while the fruity aftertaste gets stronger. The ice cream also diluted the coffee, which mafde the drink milkier and sweeter (in a good way).

Lastly, the Salted Caramel Andersen’s Milkshake ($12.9) was pretty impressive. As the name already tells, it’s made with Andersen’s of Denmark, which is an award-winning premium ice cream brand. The caramel flavour was quite subtle but I love how it wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet.
