I don’t usually go for chain restaurants unless it’s McDonald’s or the like because I know what I’d be getting into. But fish and chips are a craving I cannot deny and instead of the customary Fish & Co., I decided on Manhattan Fish Market. I have a thing with chain restaurants, which I know you may too. There are people who tend to avoid chain restaurants because, well they are chain restaurants. With the exception of some, I admit to avoiding them. But guess what? Not all of them are bad. I’ve decided to have a more open mind about them. Good things can come from an open mind. You might consider doing the same.
First things first–I love their menu! It’s clear they put a lof of thought into it. The fonts are fun and crazy, and the photos are glossy. I just couldn’t get over sliding my finger over the glossy areas. Weird, I know, whatever.
My second thought: it was either going to be really good or really bad. It turned out to be good though. The fish and chips batter was light and crispy, as it should be, the portion decent, and the service time quick. I will definitely be coming back for SFC (see below). I like the fish and chips but eating a whole portion is a little too much for me, and plus I always enjoy variety, so the SFC is perfect: it’s got a little bit of rice, chicken, fish, scallop, veggies, and fries. A totally balanced meal (for the most part)! Price wise, you’re looking at spending in the range of 75K-150K per person. How do you think Manhattan Fsih Market compares to Fish & Co.? Let me know down below. Enjoy!
