Located in the same coffee shop as the popular Rong Ji Zi Char in Northstar building, Steam & Grill is an upcoming and rising new seafood concept kitchen that wants to bring the best seafood to your mouth. I am quite a seafood lover and since Northstar is within walking distance from my house, I decided to make a trip down.
Getting to Steam & Grill
Address: 7030 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5, #01-30, Northstar Building Singapore
Steam & Grill will be serving their dinner concept every Tuesday to Sunday from 6PM to 10:30PM. I visited on a Saturday night. Before visiting, it is required to make a reservation in advance so that the team can prepare the steamboat broth in advance. Walk-ins are limited and customers will only be served subject to availability of the broth.
Here is the menu for their dinner concept. It’s a disappointment for me that only the seafood in a pot is available. I understand from the staff that grilling section will not be operating till they resolve their manpower shortage issue. Nevertheless, we decided on a Combo 3 ($64) with a few others ala carte items.
The main difference between the $64 combo as compared to $128 combo is that half lobster is served instead. Like most steamboat places, Steam & Grill provides a gas powered steamboat cooker.
We are served our utensils and plates shortly after making the order. Like most steamboat places, Steam & Grill provides a gas powered steamboat cooker.
After around 15 minutes of waiting, our seafood pot is finally ready! I do recommend to keep the steamboat lid closed until the broth started boiling.
In the broth you can find boston lobsters, flower crabs, crayfishes, scallops, prawns, mussels, white clams, pomfret, squid & dory fish. To be frank, I find the broth quite bland and not as rich that I thought it will be. I actually expect the broth to taste as rich as the Sumo Big Prawn‘s one.
Seafood In The Pot Combo 3 – $64
Below are some other ala-carte items we ordered. For the a la carte items, the veggies is priced at $3.00 or $5.00 each and the meat is priced at $5.00 or $8.00 each. See the menu above for the pricing. I would say that the ala-carte items are pretty normal. It will be better if Steam & Grill can offer some unique dishes though. This is considering that they are positioning themselves as a brand new seafood concept kitchen.
Fuzhou Pork Balls
The staff told me that the Fuzhou pork ball is one of their most popular item here. Basically, it is pork inside a pork ball.
Our total bill is around $100+ at around $25 per pax.
