Sustainable Seafood Restaurants
I’m delighted to tell you that the MSC has started working with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Singapore and next week will see the launch of the first ever Sustainable Seafood Festival. What’s more, several great restaurants are partnering with WWF and MSC to showcase the fact that a restaurant can source sustainable produce and still cook elegant and interesting fish that is priced reasonably. On an even happier note, the festival extends to my birthday (15th June) and I’ve booked one of the restaurants to have a small celebration in support of their involvement and my maturation. Yippee
I hope this will be the first of many such initiatives that will raise awareness of the various problems associated with over fishing in our own region. I’m also impressed at the involvement of some big name restaurants and retail outlets that have signed up to sourcing seafood sustainability. I was absolutely delighted that Mezza9 and The Hyatt’s other restaurant The Straits are both on the list of sustainable seafood restaurants. Below I’ve included links to reviews I’ve written for the restaurants I’ve visited, plus a link to the full list put together by WWF. If you can’t live without seafood then I strongly urge you to frequent these restaurants where possible.
Here’s to eating seafood that will be there for us in the future!

Mezza9 at The Hyatt (For the Best Brunch in Singapore)
Nearly three years on and I haven’t found a better brunch than Mezza9 (and believe me I’ve tried!). The fact that the seafood stamp of approval has been given to Mezza9 has made me breath a sigh of relief given the enormous mounds of seafood at their brunch buffet. For the quality, range and service, oh and free flow Perrier Jouet, you really can’t go wrong. For a full review click here.
