Manhattan Fish Market Queensbay Mall Penang

It's been awhile since I dined at Manhattan Fish Market. Now I feel this franchise was nice when it came out years ago, but in recent times after having a meal there, I remind myself over and over again not to do it so often. I did not really like the after taste, probably due to the oil and method of deep frying the seafood that Manhattan uses that I can't get used to.

I was with Janice when we decided to crash in at Manhattan Fish Market in Queensbay Mall Penang for a simple dinner. It wasn't my first time dining here, but the last time I ate at any of its outlet, I left feeling really full and bloated while feeling I had too much oil. This round wasn't much different, I'm not sure what came into my mind when i suggested to Janice to try their Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter.

The Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter came in this huge platter meant to be shared by two to three people. In fact, it must be shared with three people as between the two of us, we could barely finish the whole platter ourselves. The Manhattan staffs had a novelty way of preparing our dish, as they burnt the dish in a fiery flame before serving the platter to us.

The Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter came with generous amount of Garlic Herb Rice with 2 huge pieces of Deep Fried Fish Fillet, Fried Calamari, Chips, Oysters and huge juicy Prawns. Having a little of a good thing is nice, but when we had so much food between the two of us, the butter and mayonnaise starts to feel a tad too much for our liking. 

The taste was okay, just that the deep fried oil taste overwhelmed the whole dish. Do remind me to try Manhattan Fish Market's other dishes the next time I drop by any of their outlets again, probably some steamed or grilled fish instead of deep fried stuff. So are you a fan of Manhattan Fish Market?

  11. SK,
    Hey you're right. Over eating this buttery stuff really can jelak one. Moderation is the key word here. hehe

    Xing,
    Oh i havent tried the one at Pavilion yet, it should be good though. :)

    STP,
    definately have to share, even with Janice and I having this one huge platter was way too much food for us. >< Glad to hear you liked it!

    Henry Tan,
    Thats why each time I'm back at Manhattan Fish Market, i tend to order the same thing. It tastes good at the start, but when we have too much then a bit off.

    Dylla,
    Hey! thanks for dropping by! :) yum yum indeed XD
