I used to patronize Fish & Co pretty frequently during Junior College days but since then, the perceived drop in food quality and increased competition from Manhattan Fish Market kept me away. However, I was back there yesterday for a tasting of their Yusheng Platter and was pleasantly surprised to find the food unmistakably decent yet reasonably priced, altering my mental image of the restaurant while reinforcing the restaurant’s concept of providing tasty seafood dishes in a casual setting.
We have seen several revamps of their menu over the years, with the latest one around the middle of last year. So apart from the usual Fish & Chips and Seafood Platters, the current menu also boasts non-seafood items such as Pastas, Pizzas and various Combination Platters of Fish & Fowl and the like.
I have never considered Yusheng to be a fairly priced dish. Essentially, it’s just a plate of vegetables with a few slices of raw fish, yet many Chinese Restaurants charge in excess of 100 dollars for a 10-pax serving. That’s why I’m pretty amazed that Fish & Co only charges a nominal $34.80++ for a 8-10 pax platter, which includes 18 slices of sashimi grade Norwegian Salmon. Diners also have the option to double the portion of salmon with a top-up of $8.80++, a pretty good deal if you ask me given that even NTUC Yusheng retails for approximately $15 without any sashimi! This promotion is valid till 14 February 2014 for both dine in and takeaway.
In addition, Fish & Co will also be introducing a Valentine’s Day platter for two ($49,95++), available from 7th to 16th February 2014, featuring flame-grilled tiger prawns, mussels, scallops, prawn fritters and crisp battered fish, served on a bed of Fish & Co’s signature Paella rice and hand-whipped mash potatoes. The Valentine’s Day platter also includes 2 mocktails appropriately called Paris Passion and 2 soup of the day.
Special thanks to Fish & Co and Mei Yan for coordinating the invitation. The meal was paid for by Fish & Co.
