Fishermen's Wharf

Fish n Chips at Fishermen’s Wharf
Cream Dory Fillet - Fish n Chips

There ain't nothing like some fish n chips and a night out with friends you haven't met in ages.

Those fish n chips you see there weren't that great - alas, i've tasted better, but hey, for the ambience and huge space to fit an army of people, that's quite good already.

Fishermen’s Wharf - Ambience
Spacious and lovely ambience at Fishermen's Wharf

Had gone to the flea market at Home Club down at Riverwalk where Ronald and Amalina had a stall. Of course, their posse came to give support and it was great meeting up with them! They're actually my former classmates at Ngee Ann, while I was pursuing my dip. in Mass Communications. I almost forgot how fun these bunch of people are. Laughed my head off that evening at their crazy antics and camera whoring tendencies.

Heinz Malt Vinegar
Malt vinegar for you?

But of course, back to the food.

I actually expected more from Fishermen's Wharf, what with their claim of having the Best Authentic Fish n Chips. I was a little disappointed by what I was served. Or maybe it's because I chose the dory fillet. It wasn't bad, just mediocre. Their chips weren't much of a satisfaction too, considering that they're supposed to be freshly cut. Anyway i tried eating it with the malt vinegar given, not too bad i say. Hmmm I think the only time i'll be going back to this place is if I need a large space to fit that many friends. And perhaps I'll try the other offerings they have like the Scampi Fritti, or Danish Meatballs, maybe they'll be much better. Or I could always choose different fishes like Sole, Cod, or even Monk Fish.

Anyway were are some of my friends with their fish n chips:

Ronald with Fish n Chips
The self proclaimed 'Gorgeous one' a.k.a. Ronald, trying to look as good as the Fish n Chips

Oh yes, squeezing lemon onto your fish does wonders to it, I say! There you go, my sunday evening out with some of the 'funnest' people around. Cheers guys!

Wah.....I love fish and chips!!!

my alter ego said...

most times, i will always have Cod as my choice of fish.

oh..add loads of vinegar n some salt to freshly cooked/fried chips. it just makes all the difference

Tym said...

What a pity! I'd heard that their fish'n'chips were really good, but your review seems to suggest otherwise.

PS: I was at the Riverwalk flea market too. Small world!

rokh: cool! another food blogger... awesome. it's fun isnt' it? eating and blogging about food.

jadepearl: so do i... i love good chips

my alterego: cod is lovely. it melts in your mouth. but it's also an expensive fish...
yes i will try putting more vinegar! i love sour things

tym: seriously, i don't know why this one didn't appeal to me much. i have also heard that their fish n chips were good.... but maybe it's just that i've eaten better. i can still remember the one i had when i was in Brighton years back. that was the BEST eva.

you were at the fleamarket too? with your own stall or as a shopper? nice right the stuff. i bought some lovely things that day

yes, i am the gorgeous one, although the pic of me doesn't seem to suggest. that's because the pic is taken badly, not because the subject isn't gorgeous.

anyway, i definitely agree with you. the fish we ate that day wasn't good. i think the fish was dipped in the oil for too long and i suspect the oil's been around for some time for the day, since it was already 7-8pm, near closing time on a sunday night?
