Top Catch Fisheries at OUG: Restaurant Review
Seafood sails into the spotlight at Top Catch, anchored amid the packed-like-sardines markets of Overseas Union Garden, where two thirtysomething entrepreneurs captain a small shop that nets boatloads of fish-loving fans nearly every morning.
Sashimi is our focus here; thick slabs of Norwegian salmon line the counter, set to be sliced to order by co-owners Eddie & CC.
Bring it Home or Dine Right Outside
Customers can bring the sashimi home or eat it right outside, fresh & nicely chilled, at the kopitiam tables.
Delicate-tasting salmon sashimi is the main hook: this 260-gram serving, which two can happily share, costs RM20.80.
Smoked salmon is pricier but no less enjoyable, at RM37.10 for a luscious 260-gram portion.
Our order of Hokkaido scallops clocked in at RM30; the seafood here tastes satisfactory for freshness.
Limited quantities of seasonal sashimi-grade fish are sometimes also available as weekend specials, including kinmedai, ainame & isaki flown in from Tokyo’s Tsukiji market.
Other Frozen Seafood
Other frozen seafood – from grouper, mackerel & pomfret to mussels, lobster & snow crab legs – can be purchased for takeaway.
Top Catch’s Sustainable-Seafood Philosophies
Top Catch’s sustainable-seafood philosophies are made clear on the shop’s walls. Note: Parking is tricky in this neighbourhood.
