From September 4 to October 31, the S.E.A Aquarium’s Open Ocean Habitat will be transformed into a futuristic dining space, complete with eight pod-like structures. Each provides prime views of the aquarium’s majestic inhabitants – reef manta rays, hammerhead sharks, giant groupers, and more make for unique dining companions as you savour a meal of sustainably sourced seafood.
For instance, its sea bass and shellfish come from local fisheries, Barramundi Asia and Ah Hua Kelong, and ingredients like Canadian hand-harvested scallops, Vietnamese prawns, and Norwegian langoustines are used to create thoughtfully plated dishes that look as good as they taste.
But there’s more to the meal than just a visual treat; courses are punctuated with special effects and oceanic soundscapes to create a multi-sensory dinner experience. Divers, depending on the weather, might also make a guest appearance in the aquarium and swim alongside the beautiful creatures.
And as a physical keepsake to remember this unique meal, postcards depicting whimsical illustrations of sea creatures by local artist Wu Yanrong as well as a bottle of kelp sea salt are available for you to take home.
