Manhattan Fishmarket

The only thing to look forward to before any project implementation on a week night is dinner. I always like make sure that I have a good one before stressing out with work. The problem is... sometimes I just don't know what to eat anymore. I can't drive out for dinner because the jam will just kill me and kill way too much time. In the end I always find myself back in Suria KLCC, walking back and forth, calculating the money in my pocket, then deciding what I can eat that is still within my budget.

Since me and my colleague had way too much of Peri-peri chicken, we decided to go for something from the sea. Hence, we ended in Manhattan Fish Market.

Fried Calamari (RM9.90), classical crispy golden fried squids rings. I like the seasoning that MFM uses for this fried calamari. Reminds me a little of the Kentucky flour sold in the supermarkets except this have a little something else to it. Good stuff, very suitable for munching.

Since both of us are small eaters, we ordered the Flaming Platter For One (RM25.90) to share. The platter consist of one large grilled catch of the day with their award winning flaming prawns. If you are wondering, the award winning part is their thousand island like sauce that is dressed on the prawns, then flamed in front of the customers before serving. One large fillet of fish, some fries, prawns and rice. Delicious and fills the stomach.

My 'main' stomach filled, now to fill up my dessert stomach. HAHA. Yes yes me being the sweet stuff lover never say no to deserts. I always have another compartment to fill when it comes to desert. The MFM dessert of the month was the Chocolate Mud Cake (RM10.90). The whole chuck came really hard. I think if you throw at robbers, they will just drop dead. Full of chocolate bits. Felt kind of like eating Oreos with the cream replaced with a chocolate bar. Very sweet, very chocolaty, but not my kind of dessert. Since dessert was going for only RM5, we decided to ditch the mud and have another dessert.

We went for MFM's most popular dessert the Tuscan Tiramisu (RM8.90). Prepared by their pastry chef using the best coffee and cream cheese, this is definitely something we should have ordered in the first place. Really good stuff, and very filling. A dessert spoonful, let the cream cheese melt in your mouth... Fooyoh!

The dessert looks to die for Teckiee! Too bad your chochunk was too hard it looks so heavenly sinful! Did u know it took me 2 years to finally find a store that sells the THOUSAND ISLAND SAUCE here, i think its american product thus very hard to find it here! Of course in the meantime i learnt the exsitence of other nice sauces to go along with my salads ; ) I cant wait to go to KLCC and savour these delicious recommended desserts and dishes! Thx again for sharing teckiee, hugs for a gd weekend;)

I haven't been there for a long time. Perhaps it's time to visit this place again, since you mentioned that the tiramisu is good, we really shouldn't miss this out.


wenching & esiong: If you have no mood for the food, can always go in for the tiramisu
