Dining Personals: Cosy Seafood Joint The Boiler Seeks Hungry Diners to Enjoy Scrumptious Southern Meal

I am: an adventurous seafood spot that will take you on a jaunt to the Deep South for that romantic jetsetting getaway you’ve always dreamed of—all without leaving our little island. Hope you like your restaurants with a spicy Louisiana twang!

You are: anyone from a fun-loving foodie or a picky eater, ‘cause I’m poised to become your new favourite date night spot!


About me:
Tucked away in an industrial estate away from the downtown crowds, I occupy a space that exudes contemporary class and convivial cheer at the same time. You won’t be disappointed by my bold divergence from traditional seafood boil through the fusion of local and Western flavours.

Our date:
We can start getting to know each other over a luxuriant appetiser of Fried Oysters for just $10.90. These crispy bad boys have just the right crunch to break the ice. There’s also the classic Louisiana Crab Cakes ($17.90) or the Crispy Fish Skins with Salted Egg Yolk ($9.90). I highly recommend the latter if you’re craving more of a local twist.


With countless options to spoil you, I promise the outing will be a finger-licking, hearty affair. And no one will be judging if you get ‘down and dirty’ on the first date…with the Bombdiggity Bag, my pièce de résistance. It’s chock full of delectable crustaceans like Dungeness crab, prawns, mussels, clams, corn, and chorizos, all for just $145 for 4 pax. (Celebrate your birthday here by ordering this sharing dish, and I’ll make it an extra special day by throwing in a whole Live Lobster to sweeten the deal!)

With my varied menu options you can choose your own adventure. Pick from a selection of fine, fresh seafood cooked to order, then spice it up with sauces galore: The Works, Garlic Butter, and Peppa’ Butter sauce, customised to your taste. I like to keep things interesting with sauce of the month flavours, like Sambal, Hei Bee Hiam, Tamarind, and Tom Yum, for an explosive combination of exotic flair and local comforts.

I also cater to the classics with dishes like crisp Fish and Chips ($12.90) with tangy tartar sauce and the barest squeeze of lemon. And let’s not forget the star of the show: live whole Boston lobsters for just $55! To round it all off, you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a multitude of desserts like Mao Shan Wang Durian Jar cake or Molten Lava Chocolate cake.

And what would a date be without some liberal libations? Find your new favourite tipple in the Beerjito, my refreshing signature cocktail, or an extensive range of craft beers. Looking for something a little more indulgent? Well, you’re in luck. Class it up with a bottle of wine or some fine whisky pairings, from my sister company The Fortress located just next door. Plus, corkage is waived for purchases from The Fortress.

Wine aficionados will swoon at the impressive array of bottles displayed on sleek industrial-style furnishings, for a stripped-back yet sophisticated vibe. Decked out with wooden tables and comfy matching chairs, it’s the perfect ambience for a cosy nightcap. An expansive space, plush leather couches, and candles before you on the coffee table—what more could you ask for?

Picture this: seafood bags brimming with saucy, intensely-flavoured crustaceans, followed by a refreshing tipple in hand, and some quality company. Now that’s an offer you can’t resist.
