The Manhattan FISH MARKET – Kallang, Singapore


Recently another media invite to The Manhattan FISH MARKET (MFM) at their latest location at Kallang Wave by Ninemer PR PL (Thanks Ying Ying!). My second time to this unusual mall beside Singapore’s brand new Sports Hub. The restaurant is located on the outside of the mall, but pretty nearby the MRT station, hence it isn’t really hard to find. Arrived earlier than the rest of the media, I managed to capture some pics of this new outlet.

MFM will be launching their new menu today, 12 November 2014, of 43 new items, in all their 16 outlets Singapore-wide! A very massive change but innovative at the same time. Check out the pics below with my comments.

Oyster Roulette ($7.95) - is actually a game for the patrons. 2 of the oyster shooters are actually more spicy that the other 2. So see who has better luck that night!

Ocean Gems - Starter of shrimps and scallions mixed in a tangy dressing which one look I thought was Thai dressing but it is sweet and not spicy. Pretty ok starter.

Onion Glory ($7.95) - Another starter which will change the way you think about onions... especialyl for those who hates them. Crispy battered onions which resembles petals dipped in the special Onion Glory dip (creamy texture like mayonnaise/tartar sauce). Very appetizing dish!

My second drink of Citrus Mint ($5.50) - A very refreshing concoction of fresh mint leaves and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Love this drink!

MAIN COURSES

Curry Hill Seafood With Slipper Lobster ($16.95) - MFM's first ever curry entree inspired by Murray Hill in Manhattan and the Murray curry has a really nice balance between the spices and creaminess. Not too spicy and very suitable for children learning to take curry. The seafood inside was fresh but the slipper lobster was a little overcooked to my liking. Nevertheless, MFM have taken note and will balance the cooking timing for the assortment of seafood inside. Served with toasted baguette and tempura veggies. A must try!

Fishy Chicky Bang Bang ($13.95) - This is a new creation of Surf n' Turf with a piece of dory and chicken fillet sandwiched and sealed with cheddar cheese. When I cut the piece of awesomeness, cheese just flowed out... just like lava cheese on your main dish! Very yummy and one of their star dishes!

Tada! Flaming Cheesy Baked Rice ($15.95) - A big piece of flamed grilled dory fillet with spices of coriander and rosemary herb rice, this dish literally flames up in front of your eyes! Really very nice entree and great to entice kids to like fish!

Ocean Perch Perfect - Grilled Perch on buttered rice and some spicy chilli sauce on top. Not that spicy actually and quite yummy! Think my mum would love this one.

DESSERT

Strawberry Flamin-Go (Right) and Super Fruit Crumble (Left) - Between these 2 desserts, I prefer the left one more. Just feel that the strawberries didn't gel that nicely with the chocolate sauce at the bottom of the cup. The Super Fruit Crumble was really nice, that's something I would have a second helping!
Strawberry Flamin-Go $4.95 (Right) and Super Fruit Crumble $4.95 (Left) – Between these 2 desserts, I prefer the left one more. Just feel that the mango cubes and custard didn’t gel that nicely with the chocolate sauce at the bottom of the cup. I believe the marshmallows were suppose to be flamed on top but it was alright without. The Super Fruit Crumble was really nice, double scoop ice cream with apple sauce and the crunchy crumbles and dried cranberries adds to the lovely taste. That’s something I would have had a second helping!
Ended the tasting session with a latte, the 2 dots on top indicates it's from an automatic coffee machine, which most restaurants are using.

OVERALL REVIEW:

MFM’s efforts in revamping their menu is really gonna be a stunner to all their customers. In a very good way of course. The new menu offers very exciting and tantalizing entrees and desserts, which some I would wanna try but wasn’t in the list they served. I reckon they had to present their best few items for the media to try, and 43 items is just too much for us to take in one night. 😉 Put it this way, I am so gonna bring my mother to one of their outlets one of these nights and order the grilled fish or grilled platter dishes which I believe she will love. Well done MFM! No wonder these guys are the Parents World Best Family Friendly Restaurant Award winner 2014 and Best Brand in Product Branding in 2008 under Western Food Cuisine By Brand Laureate SMEs Chapters Awards!
