Hello there, Kathleen here. This week, I will be guest writing for our beloved Chosen Glutton as he is away for reservist and do his duty to protect our equally beloved (but humid) little island. Let’s all hope he can still run after all these eating. I’m not optimistic.
We are excited to be invited by Fish & Co. to try out their newest creation – the New Orleans Cajun Platter! If you haven’t already been to Fish & Co since March, I’ll have you know that they rolled out spanking new menu makeover. It now includes more choices than before for fish and seafood overs alike.
Crabcakes with Tar Tar Sauce ($9.95++) :: First up, the nondescript looking Crabcakes with Tar Tar Sauce. Well they say looks can be deceiving. Whoever they are, they got that right this time. Packed with generous crabmeat chucks mixed with onions and coated with bread crumbs, it’s crispy on the outside and savoury on the inside.
New Orleans Cajun Platter ($59.95++) :: Get excited, people. This big platter includes king prawns, clams, mussels and grilled chicken baked in the goodness of Cajun spices. Paired with paella rice, baked daikon, carrots, soup and the Paris Passion mocktail, just reading the list makes me full already. The platter comes wrapped and is baked with olive oil to retain the Cajun taste. While I find it a tad oily for my personal preference, I enjoyed the king prawns and clams. The king prawns didn’t disappoint. Tasty and succulent, it left me darting my eyes around for any sign of leftovers. This special promotional-priced platter is available from 9 July to 7 August.
Bombay Fish & Chips ($16.95++) :: Attention everybody, we have a new line-up to the list of fish & chips from different countries! What makes this dish is the lime and paprika sauce that is served along with the fish. Psst. This paprika sauce which I really enjoyed, is only served with this dish so be sure to try it out!
Chili Crab Spaghetti ($17.95++) :: Pasta tossed with sweet and spicy chili crab sauce, topping it up with deep fried soft shell crab. If you’re up for something to wake up that appetite of yours, this is it. For me, cream based pasta always has a danger of me running sick of it after I’m halfway through. You don’t have to worry about that with this one. What you really need now after all the fish and spice is some new concoctions.
Candy Crush ($7.95++) :: No prizes this time for guessing where this drink got its name from. This drink is perfect for anyone who prefers your drink on the sweeter side. It is a mixture of soda atop lychee and strawberry. The taste reminded me a bit of bubblegum. Try not to get addicted to this drink like you did with its other namesake counterpart.
Green Apple Margarita ($7.95++) :: A personal favourite out of the 4 new flavours, this drink is super refreshing and thirst-quenching. It is a blend of green apples, cucumbers and lime. You can count on it to refresh your palate after each dish.
Frozen Apple Mojito ($7.95++) :: Made of green apples and fresh mint leaves. What I really like about this is it is non carbonated and light. The last thing you need is a gassy drink after a good dinner.
If you haven’t already been to Fish & Co. in some time, now will be a good time to check out their new trendily designed menu. Get adventurous and try their new additions this time while you enjoy the live band at The Glass House during your dinner.
P.S.: You did not hear from me that if you are celebrating a birthday at The Glass House, they have an exclusive new way to uh, celebrate your big day.
Special gratitude to Shazana and the Touch PR & Events team, and the Fish & Co. team for the hospitality and hosting the invited tasting event.
