The new FiSK Seafoodbar & Market brings to Singapore a holistic ‘Seafarer to Chef’ food experience

Located on the compounds  of the recently opened  Novotel on Stevens Road, FiSK (Norwegian  for fish) Seafoodbar  & Market  is the brainchild  of Frank Næsheim, Founder  and CEO of Snorre Food, which  for  30  years  and  counting,   is one  of  the most  respected   purveyors  of  seafood  in Singapore and Asia, specialising in distributing quality Norwegian and coldwater seafood,  as well as others sourced from around the world, to major restaurants and hotels.

Leveraging  on the history  as well as the expertise  of its parent  company and Frank Næsheim, FiSK Seafoodbar  & Market  combines  a dining  and retail  experience  that  is unmatched  in its level  of  consumer-focused   sourcing  and  quality,   and  its  ‘one-stop   solution’   convenience.

Dining-&-buying in the Viking spirit

Passion and expertise,  born of pride  in Norwegian heritage  and Viking spirit,  drives FiSK Seafoodbar  & Market  – from  the hands-on approach  of veteran  ‘seafarer’  Snorre Food CEO and FiSK owner  Frank Næsheim to Executive Chef Markus Dybwad  and his dedicated team.

After  enjoying  a meal at the Seafoodbar,  inspired  diners can conveniently  recreate  a meal at home  or  purchase  quality  seafood,  ready  takeaways  and  Nordic  products  at  the  one-stop shop  in the  Market.

The knowledgeable FiSK Seafoodbar  & Market  fishmongers  would  be glad to impart  friendly  advice on any aspect of cooking,  from selection of produce  available at the  18-meter  long  seafood  display,  to  preparation and  best  cooking  methods  for  specific seafood.  The  Market   also  transforms   from  a retail establishment   to  a  social ground,   as  customers   can  book   the  space  for  gatherings  or meetings, or dine at the communal table after retail hours.

Seafoodbar

At the 44-seat Seafoodbar,  diners can choose to sit by the ‘live’  kitchen  to catch the chefs in action  and tuck  into  coldwater seafood  at its most  sublime.  Chef Markus  believes  in doing very little  to high-quality ingredients, allowing  them to ‘shine’ on their  own. Some standouts include  the  open-face   “Smørrebrød”  sandwiches;  Creamed  Fish  and  Shellfish  Soup;  and Baccalao using Norwegian dry-salted  cod.  And  for  dinner,  don’t miss the  Fried  Herring  and Salmon Tartar;  Raw Hand-Dived  Scallop ceviche; Seared Langoustine  Tail with  smoked  bone marrow,  confit  of swede and crispy kale; and the impressive  Hot-Smoked  Greenland  Halibut with pearl cous cous, roe and horseradish sauce for sharing.

In its interior design,  FiSK Seafodbar  & Market  reflects  the profound Norwegian connection with  the  sea and affinity  for  nature,  most  eloquently in the  horizontal  timber  fins or ‘binds’ that  connect  both  the seafoodbar  and market,  and in the 18-meter  long seafood  display and mosaic feature wall behind it, representing water fading into the sky.

Interiors & Inspirations: Capturing the Nordic eye

FiSK Seafoodbar  & Market  is housed within  a stand-alone egg-shaped  glass pod with floor-to- ceiling windows. Marrying  physical architecture with the spirit of the brand, the Modern Scandinavian-inspired  interior conceived  by hospitality design specialists, greymatters, embraces seafaring touches with a timeless quality  achieved through  warm tones and the use of rustic materials in a contemporary way. Colour helps unify the twin  functions  of dining  and retail  within  the space as well as play an evocative  role: blues to indicate  where the product comes from; and neutral tones depicting serenity, calm, and picturesque sophistication.

Form and material also serve to connect and symbolise: curvaceous lines mimic the movement of water, flow of the sea, and the meeting  of beach and ocean. The Market  area’s more glossy finishes  showcase  the  patina  and  accents  of  steel,  timber,   and  the  mosaic  feature   wall representing water fading into the sky. Meanwhile the Seafoodbar employs more subtle whitewashed oak flooring, white  marble  top  tables  and blue  leather  upholstered chairs and banquettes. Different woods  create layering  within  a controlled palette  and generate  variety, especially  within   the  horizontal   timber   fins  or  “binds” that  connect  the  seafoodbar   and market.  Nordic  imagery  – giant  king  crab  in the  Seafoodbar  and salmon farm  in fjord  and snow-capped  mountains  in the  Market  – strengthen the  oceanic  themes,  as do  the  hand- blown two-tone glass lamps inspired by the shapes of buoys at the Seafoodbar.

Another  visual motif  is the contemporary lighting installation  featuring circular lobster  cages flown in from a little  coastal island called Kvitsøy – the lobster  capital in the Southwestern  part of  Norway  – that  are  marked  with  the  initials  of  the  local  fishermen.  And  in  addition to displaying  retail  items,  the  cabinets  also showcase a curated  selection  of  artefacts  brought back by CEO Frank Næsheim and the team, such as fish hooks, blocks of cork buoys, ropes and fishing nets.

The Seafoodbar  has a main dining  area with  seating  for  30 and a ‘live’  kitchen  that  seats another  14. A communal  retail  table  converts  into  a private  dining  space for  12 persons for after retail hours.
