When I first heard the name of this restaurant, I couldn't help chuckling. The Mussel Guys really sound like The 'Muscle' Guys. Well no, you won't see any muscular guys around, it's just a seafood and steak based restaurant.
Normally during a Friday night at Vivocity, you will probably see queues at most eateries or restaurants but it was empty outside for this. We hesitated awhile but still decided on giving it a try. There were quite a number of customers inside, so we felt a little ease.
The service were not exactly terrible but it was kind of slow and inattentive. We have to make several reminders and even fetching a bottle of chilli sauce can take them 15min. They seem to also forgotten to serve our desserts. However attitude wise, they are still pretty humble.
These oysters cost $3.50 each, it was quite big however, we can taste that it's not really fresh even though the lemon and Tabasco sauce was added.
We weren't exactly sure what soup is this, it was the soup of the day and they just serve and poof. It tastes like chicken chowder soup. *Shrug*
Crispy Sampler Platter - Kind of disappointing as I don't really like how they fried the mussels. Too dry and hard, tasteless too. The wings were quite dry too. The rest were still ok, calamari rings were not bad.
Pan-seared Foie Gras - It doesn't impress me, not only the look but also the depth of its taste, since I've tried better ones. I'm not too sure if this is from a goose or duck. :P
Chicken with Chipolata Sausages Combo - My friends had this and they think the chicken tastes pretty good. The sausages were just normal.
Sirloin Steak and Prawn Combo - Steak was cooked medium rare although I wanted medium, texture average, taste not impressive. Have trouble removing the prawn from its shell, taste wise still alright, totally covered by the cheese taste.
I was pretty sure this wasn't medium. Lighting of this photo may differ.
They almost forgotten to serve us dessert. However, our dessert of the day seem to be different from other tables previously. Well nevermind. This is just some Agar Agar which contains some fruits cubes such as dragonfruit, watermelon and pineapple. Nothing special.
Overall, we just filled our tummy but didn't really enjoy the food. It's kind of overpriced. We probably won't return again.
