Bugis Junction Food Trail 2013: Fish & Co

During my uni days, Fish & Co. used to be the go-to-restaurant whenever we had occasion to celebrate. It's been quite a while, and boy, the menu has undergone some major revamp! (pardon if I sound suaku, but its been many years since I last visited Fish & Co.)

glossy magazine? no, it's da menu

Ok, stop the babbling and let's bring the food out! Starters first.

Clams with Curry Butter (@$11.95++)
(Blue) Mussels with Spicy Marinara Sauce (@$11.95++)
warm bread

Both the clams and mussels were served with warm bread. For light eaters like me, this alone will be enough to fill me up.

Soft Shell Crab Salad (@$11.95++)

Next, for first main course, we sampled a variation of Fish & Chips, the Bombay Fish & Chips. It's like a curried batter with dory fish. Just mild curried flavour. The fish was moist and soft.

For people who needs their carbs, here's an aglio olio. Quite liked the Shrimp & Clam Aglio Olio. Tasty and spicy. Probably a good idea to have some iced-cold water on standby. The prawns were firm and cooked just right. However, the amount of oil in this dish seemed a tad too liberal!

If you must have rice, then how about a Black Pepper Chicken Baked Rice? It's served piping hot, so do be careful with the plates. Rice was fragrant, tasty and very peppery. *sips that iced water*

Did I hear someone clamour for more seafood? Here you go:

Grilled Chicken Peri Peri with Scallops (@$18.95++)
Seafood Galore (king prawns, grilled white fish, curry butter clams, chips/rice @$22.95++)

Didn't get to taste any of the scallops as it was snapped up before I could do anything...Hahaa! The peri-peri sauce was nice, but the chicken was under-seasoned hence the flavour depended pretty much on the sauce. The Seafood Galore contained two good sized King Prawns. Impressive-looking.

By the time this post reaches you, Fish & Co. would've launched its new item, the Grilled Fish with Ebiko. Basically grilled white fish slathered generously with ebiko, served with coleslaw and chips. Soft fish, with tiny fish eggs that pops in your mouth? Sounds good. Can't show you the picture as it was already half-devoured by the time I got back to the table.
