School started this week. I no longer have the luxury to go to NTUC every day to get our fresh supplies. It’s alright to stock up on frozen meat during the weekends but I prefer to get the kids fresh fish for their meals.
I decided to try out 9s Seafood after raving reviews from my mummy friends. 9s certainly did not disappoint. Firstly, their website is easy to maneuver with all the necessary information you need about that particular fish. Even for a simple salmon, you have a variety of choices to determine how the fish will appear in front of you. You can have it as a steak, fillet (sliced or not), etc.
I hardly (almost never) buy an entire fish because it kinda gross me out and I seriously do not know how to get the organs out (nor want to) and descaling it is way too much work. At 9s, I indicated the size of pomfret I want, told them I want it for steamboat and guess what?!? The fish is nicely sliced with the head in a bag, the bones in another and the flesh on its own! Did I mention that everything is vacuum sealed for freshness?
Though slightly more expensive than the wet markets, I much rather shop for my fish online out of convenience (kids and slippery floor in wet markets usually don’t end well).
9s Seafood offers free delivery for orders over $60. This is a reasonable amount for small families like us. We don’t have to amass a huge order just to make the free delivery (like Song Fish).
One final reason for choosing this company is that you can receive your order the very next day as long as you order before 9.30pm! How fresh is that?! They literally choose your seafood for you while you sleep and deliver them to your doorstep just in time for you to cook dinner. And if you are very very lucky, they might even throw in an additional item foc. I wasn’t but 2 of my mummy friends had free squids. Sad… But there’s always next time.
My parents used to be staunch believers of wet markets. They are now converts after surfing the website. Today, they are the proud owners of 2 entire pomfret. Me? I still like mine sliced. Neat and mess free.
Here’s my $72.20 loot! Pomfret (800g), gong gong (500g), lala (500g), grey prawns (500g), scallops (500g), salmon belly (not in photo) and a Muar otah!
I really like their delivery crew too. He even went out of his way to check if my parents (who were at my place) needed a lift back to theirs cuz he was delivering their loot there. Where got such a nice uncle one?!
