I was kinda craving for fish & chips that, so we chose Manhattan Fish Market for lunch. Moreover, I've never tried their fish & chips before (wanted to compare to Fish & Co also muahaha).Iced Water - $0.50It was lemon water, which I'm not a fan of ewhhh...Gummy Bear - $5.50It's a drink made of Curacao and tropical fruit mix.

Iced Water - $0.50

Gummy Bear - $5.50
It's a drink made of Curacao and tropical fruit mix. I recall it tasted like handsoap and it made me appreciate my lemon water more haha. Creamy Mushroom Penne - $13.95
sauteed fresh button mushrooms coated with creamy sauce and topped with parmesan cheese
Didn't really like this as it was too creamy. Feeesh 'n Cheese - $12.95
hand-battered dory fillets drizzled with garlic herb sauce, complemented with cheesy chips and side salad
Upon the first slice of the fish, I got the first impression that MFM's fish was slightly less oily than Fish & Co. Instead of giving one long fillet of fish, they gave us 2 medium-sized ones, and that made the portion looked bigger than Fish & Co's (I'm not sure either it's a eyetrick or real haha). The meat was soft and well-marinated. The fries was covered abundantly with cheese sauce. Holy molly, look at that fatty cheese sauce! My only gripe was that the garlic sauce on top of the fish more looked like it's spilled rather than poured. They need to be more generous on pouring the garlic sauce coz it's seriously yummy! Grilled Glory Dory (regular) - $12.95
grilled dory fillet with garlic herb rice and veggies
Bf complained that the rice was served cold. It was indeed a bit cold when I tried, but it tasted pretty good with a distinct hint of herb. The fish wasn't so much different from mine, just that it was grilled while mine was deep-fried. I noticed that even regular portion wasn't big enough (definitely not enough for a guy's tummy).
Overall, I was satisfied with the dish and not so much on the drink. Tbh, MFM's fish & chips is more value for money compared to Fish & Co, these two brands are quite identical in taste and quality (I don't get why people say MFM's fish & chips sucks). However, I must say that Fish & Co excels more in variety (they have fish & chips with various flavors from around the world like Singapore, Japan, Italy, etc.), while MFM only has classic fish & chips with choice of original or cheese fries. But after all, it comes to personal preference. Both MFM and Fish & Co have their own loyal customers and promotional strategies to win over public attention.
