    Was in town with my brother yesterday and we decided to have an early dinner after doing some shopping. Yay to Great Singapore Sale!

    Anyway, we were at Paragon and Fish & Co. was the first eatery we saw at basement 1 so we went in. We managed to get seats without waiting and there wasn't a queue. Guess people don't have dinner so early..

    Both of us had the Philadelphia Fish & Chips and I ordered the beverage Citrus Fantasy.

    The fish was really good and the serving size was perfect! It might be a little too big for some but I think it's fine for most guys. Cream cheese oozing out of the fish when you cut it is always a good sign yes? The chips wasn't too bad either.. My mocktail had a pleasant taste. I liked drinks that have a sour taste so it was a perfect compliment to the fish.

    Service wasn't fantastic but you kinda expect a certain level which was present in this case. After settling the bill, we were given mint candy to freshen our mouth. A nice touch I guess but I could use a couple of those.. (=

    I highly recommend Fish & Co. as the food is reasonably priced and they are really delicious!

      This is my second visit to Fish & Co, the first time being at the Glass house, on this occasion (quite some time ago) we went to the branch at Paragon. Fish & Co has grow from strength to strength since it started with their first store at Plaza Singapura in 1998, bring forward ten years and now they have 13 branches island-wide.

      I believe most people know more or less about Fish & Co, so i shall skip the usual long-winded introduction and jump right into the food.

      Swordfish Collar ($14.90) Chunky & juicy swordfish collar, fried & served with spicy mango vinaigrette. Given that Fish & Co specialise in fish & seafood, they got quite a list to choose from, so i thought i’ll get something special. Now now, how often do you see restaurants serve swordfish as a main course? Never or seldom right? Thats the idea!

      Our first impression of the swordfish when the waitress served us the food, o-boy, the fish is huge! Seriously, there are three collar of swordfish, and its suppose to serve one person? Order this and share with your partner.

      Fish & Chips ($13.90) The Fish & Co classic! Fried, topped with lemon butter sauce & served with chips. The lemon butter sauce is the life & soul of the fish, it added an extra dimension to the fish. But given the price is more or less as the other fishes, i rather try different type of fishes. But my mate wanted the safe option, so they had 2 of this.

      Seafood Platter for 1 ($19.90) Platter of Seasonal fish, calamari & king prawn. Many people should have tried this one before i guess, the standard fish, calamari & the chips. Nothing new there, what i like it the rice from fish & co.

      Seafood Platter for 2 ($35.90) You must be wondering why did we order the Seafood platter for 1, and then order another seafood platter for 2 right? Pardon me, but i didn’t know what were we thinking, we sort of over-ordered! Hahaha!

      Nevertheless, Seafood platter for 2 is definitely more worth it than the platter for 1. Lets do some simple math, platter for 1 cost $19.90, so if you times by 2 it will come up to $40 right? But platter for 2 only cost $35.90, furthermore there is the addition of scallops which the platter for 1 didn’t have. Well, unless you are a small-eater, or eating alone, or refuses to eat scallop, Seafood platter is the choice.

      Total bill for the 5 of us adds up to $122.90. Usually Fish & Co is relatively affordable, but i think in this instant we over-ordered, hence the bill seems a little expensive. But i think i won’t be going back to Fish & Co in just a while, having been there twice, what must try have been tried. There are more alternatives out there with the same price range. So don’t expect to see Fish & Co III unless somebody is giving me a treat. Like what i mentioned in the previous visit, there are other options if u really want to eat fish & co type of food, Manhattan Fish Market isn’t too bad, Hooked! provides many variety of fish, New York New York has some nice seafood platters around also, and Greenwood Fish Market is my favourite.

      It was about lunch time after we have completed our tasks, so Joe recommended to eat at Fish & Co @ Paragon. Well, i have totally no idea that there is a Fish & Co situated in paragon. But, since Joe insisted that there is one over there, we decided to try our luck.

      Sure enough, there is a Fish & Co outlet located right at the basement of the Paragon. Quickly, we joined in the queue, fearing that the lunch crowd will be coming soon anytime. We got our tables rather fast and as we stepped into the restaurant, this particular staff (lets call her A) greeted us with a very warm smile.

      She then leads us all the way to our seats before distributing the menus to us. Before, we even have the chance to open our menus, A goes on to greet us again and tell us the specials for today. I believe she was speaking in a extremely fast speed as in the end of her speech, Joe and me still could not make out much of what she says. Thereafter, A told us to look for her if we need any help and she left to serve other customers.

      I was pretty glad that she did not stand at our side, waiting to take our orders. Hee hee. We finally decided to order just the following as we both have rather tight budget. i) Fish & Chips ii) Philadelphia Fish & Chip

      Ok, although both of them are fish & chips but there is one significant difference among them. And that is Philadelphia Fish & Chip actually contains of Philadelphia Cheese in them. Guess, i was pretty excited when i saw two of my favourite food (fish & cheese) combined together to form an edible dish.

      The final product was large, much larger than the normal fish & chips (same goes for its price which is much more expensive than the price of fish & chips). Upon taking my very first bite of the fish, two very contrasting feelings arose. First, is definitely the crispy crunch resulted from the deep fried golden brown crispy skin. Next, a soft and smooth texture is supplied by the dory fish met itself. Perhaps till now, you have realised that I did not comment on one important thing. Yes, it is their Philadelphia cheese.

      Honestly, I do not seem to have tasted any cheese for my very first bite of fish. :P The cheese only appears in my subsequent few bites, and the amount gets more towards the middle of the fish fillet. Well, rightfully by then I should be able to taste a strong flavour of the cheese. To my disappointment, the cheese flavour is still not strong enough.

      Perhaps it is due to the cheese that is being sandwiched between two thick fillets and thus the weaker flavour. Or perhaps they purposely make the cheese less strong to avoid over cover the fish taste. But, I think I still prefer the fish fillet is filled with more cheese as I believe it will make the entire fish fillet feel tastier and cheesier. :P

      In general, i think they do have rather good service. However, food wise, i think it can be better.
