I just wanna say that at this very moment I am SO craving a serving of fish and chips. Much more so because last week, we discovered, quite frankly, the BEST fish and chips I had ever tasted in a long while.
It was a spur of the moment decision that made us end up at Blue Reef Fish & Chips at Straits Quay for lunch. We were starving and when we saw that the menu had a kids’ meals which had spaghetti, we pounced at it.
The rest, I’d like to think, is a love affair with fish & chips which has been reignited and reaffirmed.
Our order of seafood chowder arrived fairly quickly, and I absolutely loved the creaminess of the soup, together with the freshness of the mussels and scallops in it.
Well maybe I have always had a soft spot for chowder.
Then came the highlight of our meal: we ordered a Seafood Galore platter to share, comprising fish, scallops, calamari and shrimp, served with a generous helping of fries. We chose the Beer Battered option, which was something I had not tasted before…and it was nothing short of spectacular. No, you can’t get high just eating beer-battered fish and chips but you’ll certainly love it. Our choice of fish was Mahi-Mahi, a very meaty fish, but not too flaky. Makes a really good fish for fish and chips.
Add some tartar sauce and a sprinkling of malt vinegar and you have a satisfying meal; bite and bite after bite.
Of course the kids had a good time too, enjoying their chicken spaghetti.
All I can say is, “We’ll be back!” 🙂
