I met up with a friend last two weeks ago at Manhattan Fish Market in Midvalley. The place has a nice and open nautical feel to it with wooden "decks" and bits of fishing paraphernalia strung up all over the place.The menu, too, was bright and breezy with lots of colourful pictures and descriptions of the food.
Upon seating us, they brought over a trio of seasonings and sauces - chopped garlic, tartar sauce and chilli sauce. The chilli sauce they have is superb! It's has bits of chilli flakes and seeds floating inside and is oh so fiery!
RL and I shared a Baked Dory Fillet with Plum Sauce. The fish came in a quaint saucepan with a side of garlic rice (or fries, your choice) and a wedge of tomato and lemon. The plum sauce gave it a sweetish flavour which was interesting while the garlic rice was absolutely delicious with a subtle hint of garlic and butter that was deliciously aromatic.
J had the Fish & Chips. That smear of white was supposed to be some sort of tartar sauce I think! The fish was lightly battered and was crispy but the chips would have been perfect with a dash of vinegar! In its absence, the super chilli was a close substitute!
Manhattan Fish Market is nice and reasonable place for seafood. They have seafood platters to share and a pretty good range of seafood to choose from. It was a great time catching up with RL and we're already making plans to meet up again!
