Top Catch Fisheries @ OUG

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.

 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 - from grouper, mackerel & pomfret to mussels, lobster & snow crab legs - can be purchased for takeaway.

 Top Catch's sustainable-seafood philosophies are made clear on the shop's walls. Note: Parking is tricky in this neighbourhood.

  1. Oh that's a pretty good price! I'd wallop a lot of salmon sashimi :D

    1. Ken: yeah, if you're hungry for sashimi, you could definitely finish that whole 260-gram serving of sashimi! :D

  2. wah, this is delicious, I liked it especially the salmon ah !

    1. Happy walker: ya, the salmon seems to be available every morning, tuesday till sunday :)

  3. A definite must for seafood lovers. Parking can be quite an issue so we normally park nearer to the petrol kiosk ans take an easy stroll over.

    1. Missyblurkit: oooo I didn't notice a petrol kiosk around this neighbourhood, so I parked in an alley after a car drove out, heh :D

  4. I was thinking to go there after our friends told us about this place, but keep delay and delay, haha.

    1. CK: ooo, the next time you're back here, you can try on a Saturday morning if you wake up early. Only 10 minutes from your home :)

  5. Been there a few times - good for salmon only. The tuna's only so-so. Other options are limited and only during weekends and you have to pre-book!

    1. Pureglutton: ooo, the salmon was definitely tasty enough for us to gobble up :D
