[Valentine's Day Special] Fish & Co. XoXo Platter For 2

Countdown to another 2 more days before Valentine's Day on Monday, 14 February 2011. Have you decide on what to eat and where to make your reservation on this Special Day? If budget is your concern, why not consider this Fish and Co. XoXo platter for 2.

What's more, for this Valentin's Day Special set it comes with 2 exotic drinks, 2 seafood chowders, a platter for 2, and a hot fudge chocolate cake for sharing that cost LESS than S$50.00 after all the GST and service charges. And this special bargain is available at all Fish and Co. outlets starting from 11 February till 14 February 2011.

1st 100 couples whom order the xoxo set meal on Valentine’s Day will also get to receive a “Spin the Bottle” raunchy fun game and a limited edition Fish and Co. pouch for FREE. *While stocks last.

For a start let indulge ourself with a glass of  "Tropical Punch" which is flavour with exotic passion fruit fragrant and sweet sensation taste. You can also adjust the sweetness of this drink by slowly stirring to mix the syrup at the bottom  together with the sparkling water to suit your taste.

As usual for starter, their signature hot and steamy "Seafood Chowders" is served less than 5 minutes after our order. But today the soup seems a bit diluted and I cannot seems to find my favourite "chowders".

For Kid's meal, my boy order his favourite "Fish Tale" that comes with a choice of soft drink and you can choose either to have rice or chips as side too. For S$6.00, this can be a huge portion for younger or small appetite kids.

Most of their serving staffs are very cheerful and friendly towards each and every customers. Some of the staffs even try to keep an eyes on the food serve after each interval in order to make sure there is enough space to cater the food and it is not sitting on the table for too long before it gets cold.

A minute or two after they clear my empty soup bowl, our XoXo platter arrives with generous array of seafood such as two big pieces of Crispy Salmon, 6 Grilled Peri Peri Prawn, Fried Calamari, Blue Mussels served on bed of paella rice and fresh yummy coleslaw.
Price: S$39.95 (includes 2 drinks, 2 soups, 1 platter set and 1 dessert)

The peri peri sauce for the "Char-grilled Prawns" seems a bit different from the one I had at their flagship outlet at Glass House(read more HERE). This one seems to be a bit salty but overall it still taste fine with that hint of char-grilled aroma from the fresh prawns.

  As you have notice Salmon is always one of our favourite seafood dish at home and this "Crispy Salmon" taste great with it's spicy mango vinaigrette dressing which makes it look and taste sort of like those deep-fried fish which served with Thai sweet sauce.

Although from the initial look you might have the impression that the fish could be tough and dry due to deep-frying process but when you take a bite you will be delighted with it's soft and juicy texture.

Thanks God their "Fried Calamari" serves in this set is not those chewy rubber band texture which sometime might happen in certain outlets. The one we had this afternoon was great with extra points given to its' crispy and fragrant batter.

Out of all the items on the platter, these "Blue Mussels in Tomato and Pesto Sauce" are the least favour towards our liking. We find the sauce taste rather cold and sourish and the mussels was a bit over cooked which makes it tough to bite.

Here is part of my share which is taken from the XoXo Platter Set. Eating in small portions like this makes me less guilty on feasting such a huge portion of seafood platter.

After waited about 10 minutes I decided to check with the serving staff for the whereabouts of our excited dessert. And to our surprised he has actually forgotten about it.........

For your information every set of the Valentine's Day XoXo Platter comes with a plate of "Sexy Fudgy Chocolate Cake" as dessert for sharing.

As you can see from the above photo on our desier for it which makes this our most favourite dessert to order whenever we visit Fish and Co. The warm, moist and rich chocolate cake blends well with the cold and creamy vanilla ice cream which makes this a heavenly match dessert for any age.

Lastly I would like to thanks Hazel from Thox Pte Ltd and Fish and Co for their dinning vouchers on this Valentine's Special XoXo Platter. I wish each and everyone of you "Happy Valentine's Day", may you and your loves one have a wonderful and memorable time on this special day.

Fish & Co. New 4Fs Dining

Recently in September 2010 Fish & Co has launched their new 4Fs in dining which are “Fresh healthy food, Fabulous service, Family-friendly environment and Fun”. And in order to serve healthier food to their customers they also introduce some new dishes prepared by cooking methods such as bake, poach or grill which are approved by the Health Promotion Board’s Healthier Choice.

At our recent visit to their flagship Glass House outlet at Park Mall on the “Halloween Set”(read more HERE), we also tried out one of their new items on the Grilled menu section which we find it rather a good choice from the usual deep-fried stuffs.

To complete the set meal, you can always top up another S$5.50 for an additional soup of the day and complimentary drink or coffee. On that day we are lucky to have our favourite “Clam Chowder” served as the soup of the day. We love the thick and cream soup with chunk of vegetables and lovely seafood taste in it. But we felt a little pity that it would be great if it does serve with some toast which we could dip them with the soup.

For those who frequent Fish & Co I am sure there is definitely one condiment that suits your taste out from the range that they served. For us their Sambal Chili and Tatar Sauce are always the two items that we are to grab for more. Here are some of the condiments that they would usually served:- Tatar Sauce(White), Sambal Chili, Minced Garlic, Sweet Chili Sauce and etc.

We have "Pasta & Shrimp" as starter because we love its light and refreshing taste with a tinge of cold noodle and crunchy bites of shrimps and salad green that are toss with the special dressing and sesame seeds. For your information, this starter is also one of dishes with the Health Promotion Board’s Healthier Choice symbol.

Our family loves fish especially when they are grilled with herbs or spices as this method retains the freshness and sweetness of the fish. And for those who love their fish with a hint of spiciness, I would recommend this New “Grilled Red Fish Fillet with Peri-peri Sauce”. The peri peri sauce used in this dish is not those extreme "spicy” type and I find it blends quiet well with the grilled fish that you could still taste the freshness of the fish.

This set also comes with 2 sides of your choice which you could choose from either mashed potato, mixed vegetable, homemade coleslaw, rice and etc. As for me I find their butter rice goes well with the fish and you can also pair them together with either mixed vegetables or coleslaw to balance the meal.
Price: $15.95 per set (serve with 2 sides of your choice)

As usual after you have made the payment, their friendly staffs would always offer you some mint sweets depending on the number of person. And this is also one of their signature items that even some patrons would love to purchase some extra to bring home. For those who are interested, Fish & Co NEW healthier menu is available at all Fish & Co outlets around Singapore or you could join their exciting Facebook Page for more upcoming contests at this link HERE too.

Fish & Co. Special Halloween Treat & Event

What are your plans for this coming Halloween weekend? If you are not intend to scares yourself by going to the Night Safari Halloween Horror or Sentosa Spooktacular Adventure, perhaps a pan of this “Las Vegas Fish & Chips” at the Glass House will be a great choice for you.

This Halloween Fish & Co. flagship Glass House outlet at Park Mall is having a game competition in collaboration with CapCom and SoftSource that is open to all ages. The competition is held on two consecutive Saturdays, 30 October and 06 November from 6.00pm – 9.00pm. And whoever that kills the most zombies would be the overall winner to walk away with a Xbox console (worth $499 before GST) and Dead Rising 2 game pack (worth $74.90) too.

Before serving the main course, I was shocked to see the waitress placing a glass of sparking water on the table while passing me a syringe filled with “red” liquid that seems like blood. According to the rules we have to be vaccinated against the undead with a dose of this Fish & Co’s Zombie-fied Drink. To do so, we have to inject the syringe of red granadilla into sparking water and it would infuse it with a beautiful tinge of red. This drink comes with a mixture colours such as orange(at the base which is some mango syrup), red(granadilla) and white(sparking water). This is indeed a very beautiful and refreshing drinks to go with the main course.

In less than 10 minutes our main course the "Las Vegas Fish & Chips Set" is served in the usual Fish & Co. long handle sliver pan that is filled with a huge portion of fish fillet and their special fries. The fish taste great with its crispy batter and cheesy herbs sauce which makes it a excellent choice for cheese lovers like me. But we find the batter seems to be a bit salty and we thought this be better if it can be served together with some salad to balance the taste and at the same time promote healthy eating life-style with more “Green” too.
Price: S$18.95 per set (comes together with the Zombie-fied Drink)
Available: 20 October 2010 to 07 November 2010 (all 16 Fish & Co. outlets)

From today to anytime before 07 November 2010, you can always pop-by any of their 16 outlets(HERE, check under fish world) to get yourself feed and vaccinated with their Special Halloween Treat. And if you want some spooky or gaming environment perhaps you can go down to their “Glass House” flagship outlet on either 30 October or 07 November (between 6.00pm - 9.00pm) and who knows you might be one of their “Weekly Winners” to win $50.00 Fish & Co. dining vouchers. More Details about the competition are on Fish & Co. Facebook link HERE.

Tea Time Bites @ Fish & Co

Em... talk about Fish & Co, most of us will relate it with their signature Fish & Chip or Seafood Platter that comes with seasonal fish, calamari, prawn and mussels in creamy garlic and butter sauce that served together with rice & chips.

Other than the wide varieties of items in their menu, have you ever thought of having some light savory/sweet tea-time treat at Fish & Co during afternoon shopping/leisure break? If having something light with a cup of coffee/tea together with friends while catching up some latest update with each other, then this Tea-Time Set at Fish & Co might be something that interests you.

Remember my food tasting post at “Sweet Spring - 糖水春” recently, I was also invited for one of their “Sweet & Savory Tea Time Sets” tasting as well. In their savory menu, you can choose any set out of the 4 sets together with a beverage of your of your choice for just S$7.90++.

For today’s food tasting, we will be having “Fried Calamari, Prawn Trellis, Mesclun & Chips” and “Mini Pizza & Mesclun”. For their Pizza base, it is not those usual pizza dough base but instead they used something flaky like puff pastry dough. This gives it a special texture to go with the tomato sauce and calamari topping. Great to be served as finger food during chatting session.

From the Beverage menu, you can choose either:- Coke, Sprite, Ice Tea, Coffee, Kola Tonic and Passion Fruit. For me I always like to have a cup of Ice Tea or Coffee for my afternoon Tea-Break whereby the Ice Tea will give me a refreshing taste whereas coffee will keep me awake for the rest of the day.

Fried Calamari, Prawn Trellis, Mesclun & Chips” is another set of finger food where you to enjoy your some deep-fried snacks with chips and green salad. The calamari is nicely fried till crispy and tender which is neither chewy or tough. I love the Prawn Trellis that is quite similar to deep-fried Vietnamese nested spring roll. This set will be great for those who love Prawn & Calamari.

After the “Savory Treat”, here comes our “Sweet Treat”. Fish & Co “Sweet Tea-time Set” comes with a choice of your beverage and you can choose either “Hot Fudge Chocolate Cake” or any flavour of your choice of cake from their “US Cakes” menu for S$6.99++.

I love their “Hot Fudge Chocolate Cake” which is very soft and moist inside and it goes pretty well with the ice-cream. And when u cut open the chocolate cake, you will still see some “chocolate lava” oozing out.

But if you don’t fancy chocolate cake, you can always make your choice from their “US Cakes” menu where you can find a range of imported cakes such as Key Lime, Caramel Fudge Colossal, Banana Foster Cake, Carrot Cake Colossal, Strawberry Daiquiri and etc .......

The photo shown above is the "Caramel Fudge Colossal" where they used graham crackers as the based of the cake. It is then topped with a thick layer of rich chocolate fudge filling followed by creamy new york cheesecake and finished with golden caramel and loaded with pecan pieces. Although most of the ladies or non-cheesecake lover will avoid this choice but I can assure you that, this is indeed a very rich and delicious cheesecake to go with a cup of black coffee or tea to pamper yourself for an good afternoon tea-break.

Key Lime Cake is very refreshing tart custard resting on graham crust and topped with lime juice-laced whipped cream. Each bite will be leaving you with some citric taste that is suitable for those who prefer slightly sour dessert instead of sweet treat. For me, this might not be towards my liking because I am a sweet tooth person and sour food/drink/snacks are always a “NO” on my list. But for those who loves lemon, orange or lime this must be your choice of cake to order. Posted by Picasa

This Savory & Sweet Tea Time Sets are availabe from 3:00pm - 6:00pm at all the 16 Fish & Co Outlets in Singapore. Lastly thanks Sharon & Julynn from Fish & Co for inviting me on this food tasting session.
