Tues-date at Fish & Co.

After waiting for a cab for an hour in Makati–under the torrential rain to make it worse–we had nothing else in mind but food that night. I already expressed my craving for meat–I was feeling very carnivorous that night. I was wheedling the boyfriend into eating at Racks and we really were about to enter the restaurant when a split-second decision led us to Fish & Co., a 360-degree turn from my calling for meat.

Fishes galore at Fish & Co.

I haven’t tried Fish & Co. before because I don’t really like fish. I like other seafod though such as crabs, mussels, scallops, squid and shrimp. I liked their booth seats a lot, by the way. So comfy. :)

Since it was raining that night, it was just fitting to start the meal with a bowl of savory soup. Here’s my New England Clam Chowder (Php145), which was teeming with flavor! The boyfriend, meanwhile, had the soup of the day. We weren’t able to take a photo of his soup though because he thought I ordered the same soup. 😛

Seafood Curry (Php650)

I was surprised to see they had meat in their menu, but since we were at “Fish” & Co., it was but logical to opt for a seafood dish. Right? I ended up with the Seafood Curry (Php650), which was served a couple of minutes behind schedule. I picked this because I wanted something with a kick of spice to it.

While the first few mouthfuls were bursting with flavor, I eventually realized how grainy the texture was. Also, I wish they had de-shelled the mussels and shrimps before throwing it in the plate. I find it a little weird to have the shells swimming with the curry.  In terms of taste, it was good though.

Anyway, the manager approached our table and asked about the Seafood Curry. Haha. I guess they thought I didn’t like it because  my plate was still full, looking barely untouched when they took away B’s plate.

Truthfully, I brought my curry home because my tummy was in so much pain. Eating that night suddenly became a chore so I just ate it at home. 😀

Bird’s eye view of the Black Pepper Mahi-Mahi (Php460)

This is the boyfriend’s plate (or pan) of Black Peppered Mahi-Mahi (PHp460). Judging from this picture, don’t you think it looks way too dry?

Anyway, being fish noobs, we had no idea what a mahi-mahi was. We didn’t bother the servers with our silly little question. I just made a mental note to do my research. A mahi-mahi, which is a Hawaiian term for “very strong”,  is more commonly known as dolphinfish. Don’t confuse it with dolphins though. :)

B actually sprinkled more crushed black pepper thinking it wouldn’t be hot/spicy enough for him, but later admitted that he sprinkled way too much black pepper. 😀

We just had to photograph this pretty drink. It’s a mix of oranges, raspberries and apples. Yum yum! :)

Though we left the restaurant faster than usual because I was suffering from monthly pains, I still left happy as a bee with the approachable staff and good food (and portions!). :)
