Our Christmas Eve '07!: Manhattan Fish Market

Baby and i wanted to make sure that we have enough room for our christmas dinner feast, hence we decided to forgo lunch!

But then we got so hungry we lined our bellies with some old chang kee and what have u first~ Heh heh~

Eventually, we went to the central's branch of manhattan fish market at 5.30pm to avoid the mad christmas eve crowd!


The Central
6 Eu Tong Sen Street
#02-79/90
Singapore 059817

Tel: 6534 7903

http://www.manhattanfishmarket.com


We used to go to their plaza singapura's branch before we lost interest~ But we felt like having their seafood platter for 2 again!

The staff presented us with a christmas menu which comprised of only 3 sets of choices and i was dismayed that there was no seafood platter for 2! Thankfully, it had merely disguised itself as "Festive Platter for 2" haha~

Every set comes with the same soup, drink and dessert! I was so disappointed when they told me they weren't serving chips that day!

Condiments arrived first; as always!

Mayonnaise, garlic and chilli~


That's 2 huge glasses of drinks for u! I have no idea what this drink is coz there was no indication whatsoever (either that or i didn't notice) and i forgot to ask the staff haha~

I do reckon it tasted like some kinda passion fruit flavoured sparkling juice though! Both their drink and soup came in christmassy colours!


I think this is tomato-based clam chowder; which is also called manhattan clam chowder! Not too shabby; it was rich and appetising~

And here comes our platter!

Pretty as a picture~

There were some changes to the usual seafood platter; there was the new addition of broccoli and mushrooms, little hash browns replaced the chips, there were scallops instead of fried mussels, the calamari were not as small, and i believe there were acually more prawns this time round haha~


However, it was not as yummy as we remembered it to be~ The portion shrinked (especially the garlic rice!), the fish wasn't as good, the little hash browns were cold~ -_-"

But there's something good too; the veggies was a welcomed addition to the many fried items, the scallops were good, the calamari were not as small and rubbery as it used to be, and the cheese on the prawns wasn't as jerlat~

However, i'm not sure whether which changes applied to the christmas' festive platter or the usual seafood platter as it's been eons since we've had this~


I didn't take a pic of the "famous" blowtorch-grilling of their seafood platter's prawns coz i was too slow to reach for my camera haha~

While waiting for our dessert...

We sat in the al fresco area to avoid being stuck in the greasy-smelling restaurant and enjoy the slow breeze at the same time!


Dessert was fried brownie! This reminds me of fried mars bar! Sinfully yummy! ^_^

The whole set cost $59.80; which would be $70.35 after adding in the GST and service charge!


We stubbornly sat our arses down till the sky darkened to experience the "night feel" haha~

On our way out, we heard some loud sound and before we know it, this one huge piece of glass from the glass wall cracked into a million pieces and all that was left was a gaping hole:


Everyone literally stood there in silence as we watched the glass cracked into a million pieces and fall onto the ground with loud glass-breaking sounds~

Everyone remained silent for a few seconds after that before the whole mall became alive with choruses of oh-my-god~

Cleaning up

Fortunately no one was hurt; there was a man standing beneath but he got away in the nick of time~


The police arrived soon after and we were part of the few kapo ppl still mucking around haha~

We're now sure to be more careful when standing around those glass panels!

I shall end this post with the central's gorgeous christmas tree!

Spot us in the golden glass ball?
