Fassler Gourmet Singapore

This is an open secret by now, due to rampant reporting in the newspapers. We made the hike to a remote corner of Woodlands where this factory outlet is located last Friday morning to stock up for our Christmas party this year. Fassler Gourmet specialises in salmon products but also stocks a good range of other frozen seafood like cod, whiting, oysters, bamboo clams, crayfish and lots more. Since the room in which all the produce was stored was maintained at an artic temperature, we only managed to withstand the cold for less than 10 minutes but in that short time grabbed a good haul comprising a few packs of frozen salmon tails, salmon belly, snapper fillet, a kg pack of seafood marinara, and frozen lobster bisque, crab bisque and clam chowder. I like their soups which are very rich and flavourful - the lobster bisque is especially good for whipping up a quick bouillabaisse. Total damage was less than SGD50 which is a good price considering the amount of stuff we got!

Fassler has hiked up their prices recently and their smoked salmon is now sold at almost the same price as in Cold Storage and NTUC Fairprice, but the other frozen products are still worth the long trip down - good to make a little adventure out of it! Just remember to bring your jackets along if you don't want to turn blue from cold before deciding what to buy - and an ice box to store all your stuff.
