Manhattan FISH MARKET @ Marina Square

A week ago, I was invited to a media dinner at The Manhattan FISH MARKET outlet at Marina Square as they had just newly renovated.


Now, they are sporting a new warm and vibrant look!


Check out these interesting frames being hung on the wall.

For beverages, I chose Citrus Mint because it is their signature drink.

Citrus Mint $5.50
Cool off with the refreshing taste of freshly squeezed lemons and mints. We don’t call it our signature drink for nothing.
The taste was very refreshing because of the mint and it complemented well with the faint sourness of the lemons. This is a nice drink to start off a meal.

Starter:
Garlic Herb Mussels $7.95
Poached mussels in our signature Garlic Herb sauce, served with baguette to soak up the delicious sauce
Mussels tasted fresh and were well cooked. There was no "smelly" seafood smell or bits of sand in it.

Spicy Baked Fish $15.95
Savor a baked dory fillet in extra spicy marination complemented with Garlic Herb rice and vegetables, guaranteed to jumpstart your senses.
Do not belittle the appearance of this dish. This was one of my favourite dishes that night! I totally dig their spicy sauce. It tasted somewhat like tomyum, sour yet spicy at the same time. I also ate the rice with the gravy and it was so good.

Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter $37.95
This platter serves up generous portions of hand-battered fish fillets, oysters and calamari. 

The highlight will be our Manhattan Flaming Prawns, brought to full flavour when our Sea-cret Agents flame right before your eyes!

I love fried food and seafood so this definitely suits my palate. I did not know they serve oysters in this platter too! What a pleasant surprise. If you are craving for seafood, you know what to get in Manhattan FISH MARKET. In this platter, there are 4 types of seafood. Even though they were deep fried, they still managed to retain their seafood taste. The calamaris were easy to chew and swallow. I really hate eating calamaris which make my jaws hurt due to their toughness so I am glad that those calamaris served here has passed the test (of my tastebuds).

The prawns were so great in demand that they served us an additional plate of their signature flaming prawns and chips because everyone wanted more teehee!


creamy and cheesy bed of toppings, drizzled generously over the prawns. 

of course, we finished them all up!

Check out their home-made sauces which makes their dishes even more yummy.!
Dipping Sauces · Cajun Honey Mustard · Spicy Seafood Dip · Smoky Chipotle Sauce
If you'd like additional dipping sauce, it is available at $1.50 each. My favourite has got to be the spicy seafood dip which is used in their Spicy Baked Fish dish. I also dipped the fries in them!

Sizzling Brownie with Ice-cream $9.90
Good for sharing, it is the perfect harmony of elements. Enjoy this warm sizzling brownie, topped with smooth vanilla ice-cream in sweet caramel sauce and nuts.
The server poured in the sweet caramel sauce and nuts (after) onto our dessert and the moment the sauce came into contact with the pan, it made sizzling sounds which in turn made us all very excited. We certainly could not wait to tuck in!


It was still sizzling when I took the picture! I am not a fan of caramel but thankfully, the caramel taste was not overwhelming. The chocolate brownie was quite warm and it went well with the lighter flavour and coldness of the vanilla ice-cream. It was a sweet and delightful ending to the meal.
