We were at the mall when we happened to see a Fish & Co banner that there was a birthday month promotion discount on top of a complimentary ice cream, and since it was the birthday month for one of us, we decided to have our lunch at Fish & Co.Spacious with a rustic chic decor that gives it a warm, inviting and cozy atmosphere, we find it ideal enough for us to sit back, relax and enjoy our simple lunch in relative quietness, especially since there was (surprisingly) not many people despite it b
Fresh seafood in a pan! Apparently, the idea of presenting the dish in a pan is inspired from the practices of the fishermen in the Mediterranean Sea, who cooked and ate seafood off the pan while out at sea. The fried fish fillets are indeed quite fresh and the batter coating the fish is quite light and crispy. The fries are also quite crispy and we like that they were not over salted, though funnily enough, I actually kind of like these tasty "chips" more than the "fish" (but that’s just me speaking as a potato lover). Bread ($1.95)
It was listed as just "bread" on their menu but we asked and were informed that these are actually seasoned with herbs. Soft and chewy, these bread are light but tasty enough for us. The portion is also quite plentiful and value for money at only $1.95 for a lovely basket of it. Mashed Potato ($2.95)
The mashed potato may be a simple side dish elsewhere, but the version here really stands out! The super slick mashed potato is silky smooth and moist with just a slightly chewy edge to it, and the creamy sauce, though a tad too little for the entire mashed potato, complements the potato really well. This is a side dish worth getting! Chocolate Pecan Cluster ($6.95)
When you combine moist chocolate cake with layers of gooey caramel and chocolatey brownie cubes spread with a rich chocolate ganache and throw crunchy pecan chunks into the mix, you'll get a treat that is nothing less of sinful. Chewy, crunchy, sweet and rich, this dessert will make the perfect ending to the meal. Oh yes, it's "one bite and you’re hooked!" alright! Complimentary Ice Cream
We weren't sure what to expect of the complimentary ice cream and this turned out to be rather common. Just a single scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with a swirl of chocolate syrup and a cherry. The ice cream is quite creamy, but otherwise nothing really special about it.
At least there was a discount off our bill, which we appreciated although we find their usual prices to be otherwise pretty much typical of restaurants. The food is quite decent for the price as the seafood at Fish & Co is quite fresh. The sides are actually also quite worth getting, especially the mashed potato. But it's the desserts like the Chocolate Pecan Cluster, aptly called "Sweet Lures" at Fish & Co, that I certainly wouldn’t mind being baited with again!
