The Manhattan Fish Market @ Pavillion

After a tiring day of walking, shopping and browsing in downtown KL, we were disinclined to embark on a food-hunt. It was a case of we will eat 'whatever that is edible and won't burn a hole in our pocket'. We had emerged from C.K. Tangs and were at the lower ground floor of Pavillion.

The Manhattan Fish Market caught our eye. Hubby had eaten at a different outlet on a weekday lunch with his colleagues and said it wasn't bad. While I enjoyed fish, I had never been a fan of those chain restaurants that served fish.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, displayed on a banner outside the restaurant was a set for two at RM49++. The fish, as I suspected, was dory. I'm not a fan of dory, but oh well, what the heck, I was tired, so let's not be fussy.

We didn't have long to wait before our food was served......pre-cooked fast food....what did you expect from chain restaurants??!!

The soup of the day was mushroom soup. It was buttery and had a subtle taste of parsley, and a less subtle taste of wild mushroom. Mmm....

 We chose the Quad Delight for our starter. On the plate were fried calamari, fried country mushrooms, fried shrimps and a serving of coleslaw with raisins. I enjoyed the fried country mushrooms but found the fried calamari and shrimps to be too salty for my taste. I skipped the coleslaw and raisins....never liked it when I was young, and never liked it now.

 Hubby's initial choice was baked dory, but we were told it's all sold out. So he opted for poached dory in mint sauce, what I had initially had in mind before deciding on grilled fish. He cleaned the plate, well, except for the aluminium foil. If he could, I'm sure he would have eaten that, too.

As for me, I didn't touch it  and was glad I changed my mind about having the dory poached. It looked too slimy for me. 

My choice of grilled dory arrived shortly after. For once, this dory was not slimy but firm. However, it was way too salty for me. Hubby who didn't find it salty in the least, said I must have a very low tolerance for sodium. I barely finished half of it. Hubby had to finish the rest for me. I left my rice untouched as I was full to the brim by then.

The set meal came with two glasses of Tropical Breeze, a Haiwaiian fruit mocktail. A refreshing drink after a tiring day and sodium-enhanced meal.
