WITH great locations in Bangkok’s most popular malls, the aptly named Café Fish restaurant chain reels in seafood fans in droves with a wide selection of maritime meals such as classic Fish and chips (B290++ made with imported Atlantic Cod) and the Mediterranean- inspired Seafood with pasta in Pomodoro sauce (B290++).
What’s more, the restaurant has just updated its menu and now offers a new selection of shellfish dishes, with highlights such as plump and meaty New Zealand mussels cooked in a creamy herb and white wine sauce (B245++), Clams fried in a garlic herb butter (B190++) and Six tiger prawns grilled and topped with a choice of lemon butter, garlic herb, or Portuguese Piri Piri spicy sauce (B255++). A tempting new Seafood platter, meanwhile, features a hunger-busting serving of sea bass, prawns, calamari and mussels, all for just B720++ for one person, and B1,480++ for two to share.
While fried fish and chips with its light and crispy beer batter is easily the most popular choice at the restaurant, there are plenty of other fish dishes that are definitely worth a look, such as the Baked Italian line fish (B360++), Fresh seabass (B300++), and Grilled salmon topped with creamy dill sauce (B340++), as well as a selection of salads and pasta dishes.
Each order of fish comes with a choice of salad, French fries, or Spanish rice, and, if you choose steamed fish, with sauces such as Lemon butter, Garlic herb and Piri Piri (spicy) Portuguese Sauce.
While most foreigners will be content with enjoying their meals topped with a dollop of tomato sauce, anyone with more local tastes should opt for some of the restaurant’s ‘Spicy Seafood Sauce’ – a real tongue zinger which, quite fittingly, will have you taking to water like a fish.
Café Fish can be found at Emporium, Terminal 21, Siam Paragon and Jungceylon Phuket. Open daily: 10am – 9.30pm
