It has been a busy start to the new year and in less than 15 days’ time, it will be the Lunar New Year and I’m pretty excited because according to multiple Fengshui Masters’ prediction, the 2017 outlook for those born in the year of the Dragon seems quite promising.

I must admit that getting ready for the Lunar New Year is a tedious yearly affair as there are so many things to do and prepare; but it is also a good opportunity to do some spring cleaning, get some new clothes, shoes, accessories, and even a new hairdo.

Prices for Bak Kwa (barbecued sweet meat), New Year goodies, reunion dinners and even hairstyling services tend to inflate during this season and it is no surprise why most Singaporeans will choose to go to Malaysia to do their shopping since the exchange rate is rather favourable at 1 Singapore Dollars to 3 Malaysian Ringgit.

Are you ready to usher in the Year of the Rooster?

Here’s wishing all our readers a Happy and Prosperous Lunar New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Last Wednesday, we were very privileged to have been invited to Manhattan Fish Market at The Dining Edition @ Marina Square, for a really sumptuous food-tasting session and to be honest, Manhattan Fish Market is no stranger to us as we often dine there at least once every 2 months. Furthermore, most people [including us] would agree that the food and beverage offering at Manhattan Fish Market is way better than Fish and Co.

Well, after months of absence at Marina Square due to renovations, Manhattan Fish Market recently re-opened its outlet at ‘The Dining Edition’ space in the mall with a totally brand new look which will delight diners.

Here’s What We Had During The Food-Tasting Session

Garlic Herb Mussels [SGD$7.95++]

Poached mussels in Manhattan Fish Market’s signature garlic herb sauce and served with baguette. We like this dish a lot and we highly recommend it to people whom are into eating mussels. The garlic herb sauce is flavourful and it complements the mussels pretty well.

Baked Dish
Spicy Baked Fish [SGD$15.95++]

Savor a baked dory fillet in extra spicy marination complemented with garlic herb rice and vegetables that is guaranteed to jumpstart your senses. We highly recommend it to people whom can take spicy food because the Spicy Baked Fish might be too spicy for some people. As for us, we absolutely love it because of its tantalising taste!

Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter [SGD$37.95++]

This platter serves up generous portions of hand-battered fish fillets, oysters, and calamari. Given the large portions, we highly recommend the Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter for big-eaters to satisfy their growling stomachs.

Sizzling Brownie with Ice-cream [SGD$9.90++]

Good for sharing, the Sizzling Brownie with Ice Cream is a perfect harmony of elements. Enjoy this warm sizzling brownie, topped with smooth vanilla ice-cream in sweet caramel sauce and nuts. Truly, a perfect way to a sweet ending.

Citrus Mint [SGD$5.50++]

Gummy Bear [SGD$5.50++]

The exciting flavors of Curacao and tropical fruit mix is guaranteed to liven up your senses. Simply bubbly, it is called Gummy Bear because it tastes like the Gummy Bear candies.
