The fish in itself was such a play on different textures: the inside was almost melt-in-your-mouth delicate and the outside had the right amount of crisp. Actually, when I looked closely at the piece of seafood, I was able to discern certain marks of the griddle on the fish which gave it a sort of home-y and rustic feel.
The plate in itself was very well-seasoned, from the fries to the lemon butter sauce. You see, being a fan of many different sauces, I sort of raised an eyebrow upon seeing the singular strip of sauce on top of the fish. After tasting it though, I was happy to note that the serving of sauce was perfect, no more and no less. Trust me, I still can’t get over this. It’s that crucial of a fact for me. Haha!
Fish & Co. thrives on the saying that goes, “One bite ‘n you’re hooked”. I think it’s pretty safe to say that this dish fit that phrase to the T.
Noodles were al dente, as they should always be, and the sauce had a good creamy consistency. The dish sort of reminded me of a twist on the famous Carbonara that everyone knows and loves. The twist, of course, being the mushrooms which gave an earthy flavor to the plate. Yes, I’m pretty biased. I really like mushrooms in my food.
In all honesty, I would have given this dish a higher grade had it not been served with overcooked prawns. Too bad. It was the only disappointment for me.
I’d peg this as a masculine dish. It’s meaty, packed with flavor and well, it has bones, so it’s bound to get messy. I’m still living under the perception that the best way to enjoy a meal from animal meat is to eat it using bare hands, but seeing as we were in public no less, I had to practice my knife and fork skills. Haha!
There is absolutely nothing bad that I can say about this platter. The onion rings had a crisp shell and to my surprise, weren’t as pungent as I’d expected to be, the ribs were tender, and the sauce… Oh my goodness, I literally had to stop myself from saying “wow” out too loud.
We’re definitely coming back to Fish & Co. for more gastronomical feasts soon! Maybe I might even sign up for one of their Bistro cards the next time I’m there… I have so much love for the establishment, their staff and their menu right now. It’s insane!
