Mussels in Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce: (I’m just copying and pasting as described on the menu) Blue mussels cooked in our homemade garlic lemon butter sauce; served with warm bread. The taste? I love the thick sauce. As I’m now acquainted with tiny Indonesian portions compared to that in the States, I didn’t expect large, juicy mussels to be served on my table. Like I said, sauce is silky-savory; it’s imbued with briny and buttery ingredients with a whiff of citrus freshness. I ended up dipping everything else on our dinner table into the sauce that night. I refused to take a second bite at the flimsy bread though – they’re not warm as claimed, nor do they carry any substantial taste.
Poached Halibut with Spicy Teriyaki Sauce + Grilled Peri-Peri Prawns: This is a combination platter of two Fish&Co menus. I wish portion of the halibut was bigger than the king prawns. As you can see from the picture, fish is blatantly smaller than helpings of side veggies. However, I have to give the overall taste of this dish a thumbs-up. Unlike most mid-level restaurants, equal care and attention is given to everything on the pan, and that includes the side veggies. They’re cooked just crunchy enough to bite (and even lightly seasoned with salt and pepper) but not as raw as a tasteless bud. I haven’t even begin to tell how much I love the rice and its richness – each bite sensitizes every tissue of your tongue. It’s got dried raisins in the poignant mixture that, when eaten with the spicy, fleshy prawns and a hint of teriyaki sweetness, you get just a little bit closer to heaven. Highly exclusive for all you seafood lovers.
