Our Review of Royal Cuisine Signature Seafood Shellout

The Seafood Shellout was timely delivered half an hour before my mini party was to start.

Came in a takeaway box like this. Felt pretty heavy when I lifted the box. Such packaging is so convenient. I can bring this out for a picnic by the beach or as an add-on to a friend’s pool BBQ party next time.

Everything was neatly packed in aluminium foil trays and clingwrap to prevent spillage.

Even came with a box of potato chips.

Upon unwrapping the trays, I caught a whiff of fragrant chilli crab sauce. We were all thoroughly impressed by the quantity of seafood in this.

Crabs and prawns were sizeable. Both were fresh with firm flesh that did not stick to their shells. I really liked the crabs as they were naturally sweet in flavour. How I wished they were female crabs with roes, lol.

Mussels were plump. Scallops and clams were tasty too. And the salmon was flaky and moist.

On the bottom of the trays (below all that seafood), you’d find corn, sausages and potatoes too.

The chilli crab gravy was moreish. Very flavoursome but not overly salty/sweet or starchy. Perfectly balanced. The more you eat it, the more you feel the spicy heat. Shiok!

I would suggest that you prepare some fried mantous or baguette separately so that you can use them to mop up all that delicious gravy.

Even though this set was meant for 10 persons, 6 of us (all adults) managed to whack all up in one shot. And we felt really full after the meal. But if you’re going to serve up extra sides besides this seafood set like mantou, bread, fries, etc, then it’d be good enough for 8-10 people.

Final Thoughts

We unanimously agreed that the Royal Cuisine Signature Seafood Shellout was a value-for-money deal as the portion size was really substantial. To have the same at a specialty seafood boil restaurant will probably set you back S$400+. Best of all, this can be delivered to your doorstep so you can have a ‘shelling good time’ in the comfort of your home.

The seafood was fresh and the sauce was tasty. And we didn’t feel extremely thirsty after the meal. Definitely recommend it!

By the way, Royal Cuisine Group has this employee-led initiative, Seeds of Kindness, that aims to help the less privileged. For every dollar spent with Royal Cuisine Group, a portion of the proceeds is channelled to various charitable initiatives.

Every order is valuable. Every contribution counts. Order your Seafood Shellout now and have a shelling good time!
