Fish & Co

02Sep07

Comex fair at Suntec broke the record sale for IT-products this year on the first day of the sale itself (can’t remember the exact figures), but then again Singaporeans are getting more affluent so no suprise there. We reach the place at about 1pm, crowd is not exactly the word to describe the place, “Jam-Packed” it is!! Somehow i felt it was like the congestion of the CTE during peak hours. LOL! Anyway, Mister Ang wanted to buy a external hard-drive to store his songs and pictures, so here we go. We went around looking at different stores, but Seagate is really the only brand to get la, finally he decided on 2.5” Seagate 80GB at $119. We saw Chen Min, her parents shop selling external hard-drive so we brought from her. The Q for buying hard-drive was like super long, although each drive cost 100+ at least, people were grabbing them as though like they were free. Good business, maybe i should consider opening shop selling external hard-drive : )

The Q was so long that after we pay it was 250pm already, which was unfortunately also the time for our movie Ratatouile!! Mister Ang booked the tickets online beforehand. From the Comex fair at Suntec tower 1, we run all the way to Tower 4 or 5 where the Eng Wah cinema is located at. It was literally running 2.4Km inside Suntec, zip-zapping through the highly congested crowd. Luckily we got the army-training for this. We reach the cinema got our tickets went in at 3pm, and you-know-what? The movie haven started they were still showing the trailors. Ha!

“In the hilarious new animated-adventure, RATATOUILLE, a rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the city of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unwanted visitor in the kitchen at one of Paris’ most exclusive restaurants, Remy forms an unlikely partnership with Linguini, the garbage boy, who inadvertently discovers Remy’s amazing talents. They strike a deal, ultimately setting into motion a hilarious and exciting chain of extraordinary events that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.

Remy finds himself torn between following his dreams or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef.”

The movie was really quite funny, and cartoon animation movie at 2 hours quite few. I remember last time i see ‘Cars’ also an animation movie from Pixar it was 1 hour only. Also want to see another movie ‘the last legion’, the storyline seems not bad, maybe next week : )

Mister Ang went home to have dinner with his father, i went to Plaza Singapura meet Tay Xuan, we were supposed to meet at 6pm, but he reached the place at 715pm. Put me aeroplane, so i was at PS wandering about, then went to Times bookstore to read some books, so many books i wanted to buy. Currently reading ‘The Intelligent Investor’ by Benjamin Graham (the father of value investing). Wanted to get ‘The Warren Buffett way of investing’, ‘How to become a millionaire by Adam Khoo’ and a few others. But decided that have to finish my current book before buying the rest.

Dinner at Fish & Co The Glass House, as i had called in advance to place a seat in the waiting list (they don’t accept reservations on Weekends), when we reach we managed to go in straight away. The menu had quite a variety of fish and seafood for their main course (no other meat, after all they are called fish & co, not meat & co)

Fried Calamari ($8.90)

The all-time favourite there, juicy tender squid rings grilled or fried to your preference! The servings were huge, two of us almost cannot finish it, best to order it when you have a larger party. Btw, the pictures aren’t very clear cos the lighting there wasn’t that bright, and i don’t have photoshop so bear with it : )

New York Fish & Chips ($14.90)

Before i start eating i was starving, but after eating halfway i was already full! From the picture you can’t really tell how big the fish is. Perhaps because the fish is stuffed with cheese, i felt the thirst just halfway through. Maybe it will be better for two normal-eaters to share one fish & chips and order another starter to share. Big-eaters, go ahead!!  Service rating

Grilled Salmon with rice ($16.90)

Salmon was quite good, together with garlic rice and some vege to go along with. I don’t really fancy salmon so much, but mayb sometimes it’s good to have some changes? Ha Service rating

Overall, the experience at Fish & Co was rather a good one, the staff were friendly, the food was pretty good just that i find it too thirsty, and the staff were a bit slow in refilling my water (mayb too many customers or i finish the iced water too fast). The price won’t burned a hole in your pocket, our total bill for 2 person was $47.90. There are also a lot more variety of seafood and fish to choose from. Positive!! I will go back again, but mayb meanwhile my next stop will be Manhattan Fish Market, a restaurant with a similar concept to Fish & Co, or Hooked! a restaurant offering many different variety of fishes. I just realise nowadays had too much fish & chips, mayb if i tried a few more, i can compile a ladyironchef Best of Fish & chips list. Stay tune : )
