C and I were at Mid Valley Megamall over the weekend for the Pet Expo! But, as usual, first order of the day was lunch. After walking around for a bit, we decided on Manhattan Fish Market. Despite the name, it’s a local chain that serves seafood with a fusion of flavours, from Malaysian to Western and Mediterranean. The quality among the different outlets varies, so it’s a hit and miss every time I try a new place.
C’s order of baked fish which came served with a side of rice and boiled vegetables. The fish didn’t look too fresh, and C said the sauce was too watery.
I had the Curry Hill Seafood. Diners can opt for either shrimp or Slipper lobster (I chose the latter), and the dish comes served with a side of battered veggie sticks and baguette for dipping. The baguette was nice and crunchy; great for mopping up the curry sauce, which was well flavoured. Was a bit disappointed with the quality of the seafood though, as the fish + slipper lobster was on its last legs (you can tell it wasn’t fresh just from the greyish colour – despite the curry sauce on it). Mussels were okay. The veggies were tasty though.
My two cents? Give MV a miss.
