Fish N Chips (and garlic mayo fries!) were my soul (food) mates when I was studying in the UK. It’s hard to find one that can match the big, juicy fillets from Devonshire Chippy – the tiny snack shop along Devonshire Street back in Sheffield.
Back in Malaysia, the alternatives are often restaurants that serve expensive versions, like Manhattan Fish Market (MFM) or Fish & Co. While the quality isn’t bad in some places, it’s hard to find a consistent taste because they have so many franchise outlets.
I’ve always thought F&C was better than MFM, but I recently decided to give it another try when I dropped by Cyberjaya’s shopping mall, D’Pulze, for lunch.
It has been ages since I visited any MFM Outlet. They used to have these drab, dull-looking menus, but they’ve revamped it to a bright ocean blue with nice photos. They have new items to boot!
Love the interior, which is classy yet cosy. Black and grey walls and cabinets with light beige wooden furniture = perfect combo. I’d decorate my living room like this. They also have glass windows with a view of the city outside. Lots of natural sunlight (which is why my photos look good) and even an outdoor patio for those who want to smoke/soak up some sun.
The waiters were mostly foreign students and very nice and friendly. Good service.
Iced coffee. Just poured the milk in 🙂
The drink was okay, but tasted like generic coffee. Not too bitter or sweet.
My regular fish N Chips (RM18.90), which came on a bed of fries and served with a slice of lemon for drizzling, mayo and salad. The light version (RM12.90) only comes with one piece of battered fish fillet.
I was pleasantly surprised to find the quality here to be not bad at all. It’s one of the better fish n chips I have had. The fish was well done, juicy and crispy on the outside without being too oily. The fries were slightly too thick cut for my liking but well seasoned and they taste like actual potatoes (so many restaurants have weird fries that taste super processed…)
Definitely one of the better MFM’s that I’ve tried. 🙂

I’ve been on a dry book hoarding spell for months, so it was time… indulged myself to a new notebook and two fiction books.
