Dinner at Fish and Co
Update: Fish and Co Greenbelt Branch has closed
March 20, 2011
Now as a complete family (my sister wasn’t able to join in the previous trips due to her work schedule), we ate dinner at Fish & Co. Just a bit of background, Fish & Co belongs to the Bistro Group of Restaurants together with the following restaurants (some I have already eaten or tried):
- T.G.I. Fridays – (sadly, lost my pictures for this one)
- Outback Steakhouse
- Billy Rock
- Pig Out
- Krazy Garlik
Well, for me personally, these group of restaurants are places where you can eat good food but be warned because they are expensive. It would be not surprising that your bill will reach PHP1000 or more when dining in these restaurants (though most of their servings are for sharing). But anyway, let us start to show you what we ate at Fish & Co.
Caesar Salad with Smoked Salmon
Mmmm vegies! :) The salad tasted good but I did not like the smoked salmon (it is a personal preference because when I took a bite, the texture was similar to eating sashimi and I’m not fond of eating sashimi). This one is just ok (nothing special).
Fish and Co Calamari
I liked the calamari as it wasn’t rubbery (as you would expect from them being fried) but the texture was just right (tender inside). Dip it with the sauce, and your appetizer is complete.
Fish and Co The Best Fish and Chips in Town
This is their best seller. Instead of having chips or fries, we asked them to switch them to rice. A big “slab” of dory that is good for about two or three persons or if you want, you can eat it by yourself (I wish I had taken a picture of it showing its size on the pan because it is as big as half of the pan). Just a warning though, it is very filling. It had a crunch exterior and soft and tasty interior. It is something I could keep on eating and eating but due to the rice and other dishes, I tried my best to limit my “gluttony” lol.
Grilled Chicken Peri-Peri
This is something new for me (I always thought they only served seafood). I wasn’t impressed with their chicken peri-peri. There is something wrong with it but I really can’t describe it. I think it has something to do with the marinate they used. It doesn’t taste like your usual chicken BBQ or chicken inasal that we know. I guess I’m not used to the “peri-peri” of chicken cooking. (Perhaps it would appeal to others but it didn’t to me)
BBQ Pork Ribs
Why did fish and co suddenly have meat on their menu? Were you asking the same question as I did? Well, I’m not sure when this started but now Fish and Co serves meat aside from seafood. We checked out the menu for their meat dishes and decided on the BBQ Pork Ribs. The pork ribs was Ok (not as soft or has the fall-off-the-bone effect like let’s say, Racks) but in terms of taste, it tasted great. The pork was tender and sometimes juicy (how many times have I mentioned this word in this post, I guess I need a thesaurus).
So that ends our dinner to Fish and Co. The dishes were filling and I really liked the calamari and the fish fillet so I would recommend them as something you should try on your next visit. :)
Till next time,
