Seafood Birthday Dinner! To celebrate my dad's birthday this year we went in search of a seafood restaurant which we used to frequent that used to be at a location near us. 'House of Seafood' has several outlets in Singapore and although it's not a large chain and not as famous of Jumbo Seafood but has quality chinese dishes and super fresh seafood!
It's a tradition in our family like many chinese families to celebrate special occasions with food more than anything else! My family tends to go for seafood meals that usually include prawns, crabs or both!
Continue below for the dinner!

|After about 20 minutes driving around we finally found where the yio chu kang outlet was relocated! It's now in an old run down mall in Upper Serangoon!|
|The restaurant is a big space with lots of large round tables! It was very nice and bright and clean and modern looking compared to the very road side, casual decor it used to have at the outlet that used to be near us!|
|The new menu is expanded and full of affordable to expensive seafood dishes of prawns, crabs, abalone, shark's fin, clams, slipper prawns, fishes and more!|
|Here's another page from the newer glossy menu! Like most chinese restaurants fish is cooked in every way possible, fried, steamed, braised and boiled!|
|On the long inner wall the restaurant features photos of all the notable public figures from actors to singers, political party members and such who have visited this outlet since they opened!|
|Fried prawn rolls! Prawn and fish paste with bits of crunchy water chest nut wrapped in tofu skin and then sliced and deep fried! Served with a delicious sweet sauce!|
|Seafood hor fun noodles! This was perfection! The noodles fried til brown and then lots of bits of seafood with a rich tasty gravy and egg!|
|Seafood hor fun noodles! The noodles were so fragrant and the gravy so delicious! I ate mine with lots of pickled green chilli!|
|Deep fried yam ring filled with mix vegetables and seafood! This is a favorite modern chinese item, the yam paste is fried and savory and delicious and I ate up every bit of the fried noodles around!|
|Look at the size of that giant claw! We had at least 4 pieces leftover and had to take away!|
|This is something no one can help whilst eating chilli crab! A good hand washing is needed afterwards!|
|My parents taking a selfie with my dad's phone!|
|A family photo before we left the restaurant! It was getting late and most of the other customers had left already!|
|A fruit cake that we got for my dad from our local pastry chain Bengawan Solo! (it sells mostly traditional chinese/peranakan type desserts, biscuits, pastries)|
|My dad's birthday cake all lighted up!|
|Posing with Pebbles with now almost 18 year old dog! She's been part of the family for a long time!|
|Our husky Sirius peeking through from the living room! We tried to get him to come in a pose but he just moves too much for a photo!|
