Got a little treat from a friend from being a good emcee last Friday. Initial deal was a slice of Cheese Cake (Ummph...Drool...) but decided to have an early dinner (staple food) after Sunday service, to attend to my books which were calling out to me in hall.
Me being home-grown child, i'm taught about healthy diet and "brain food" which is important for ME! especially during exam...
Some regular food items are rich sources of substances with alleged nootropic benefits:
- Nuts, in particular walnuts, are rich sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid. A mixture of walnuts served with dried fruit pieces is known in some regions as student food (orig. German: Studentenfutter) and is there popularily recommended as a snack for students and other mental workers.
- Oily fish, such as salmon or fresh tuna (not tuna canned in oil) are also good sources of omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, whose lack in diet has been associated with increased risk of mental illnesses such as depression, aggressive behavior, schizophrenia, or hyper-activity in children. "
Fish & Co. there we came.
A very different ambience from the usual Fish & Co. outlet I visited 2 or 3 times (can't remember) at Jurong Point. Decorated in Black & White theme with a modern touch. Menu is in a completely different layout from JP outlet. Some dishes such as New York Fish & Chips - Cheese-stuffed Fish & Chips and a variety of pasta that are only available at selected outlet are included.
A new dish by Fish & Co. Mushroom salad - assorted green with olive oil and vinegar dressing topped with Sautéed mushroom with bits of garlic and generous black pepper. $ 8.90
Another new dish - Baked Ginza Salmon $ 16.90. It's actually a common baked salmon dish with a twist of Japanese. Being a newbie in food blogging, i'm not there yet to descirbe the taste, go try it yourself. But my palate is not used to this taste yet. Maybe you'll like it.
Baked salmon with Citrus herb crust served with creamy mushroom sauce $ 16.90
JOjo and her favourite baked salmon, 80% cooked. The first serving was returned due to overcook (Jojo's sense - salmon being flaky=overcook) and too salty! The floor manager explained that the Citrus crust contributed to the heavy taste and the Salmon is done perfect. She later on exchanged another one for me without the crust and at 80% cooked which i simply love it! The feeling of salmon melting in my mouth, umphh...
As usual, Fish & Co. main comes with Sautéed Vegetables and is served with chips or rice. For me, it's always 2 serving of Sautéed Vegetables instead of having the chips/rice.

What about the cake? You may asked. Although i was filled by the Salmon, my stomach always have a soft spot for cakes.
The warm choc cake was rich and nice but i wish it could be a little warmer. It was cold and hard at the center when i was expecting it to be moist and soft.
I started to wonder did i request for the Warm Choc Cake because i want to eat the cake or is an excuse for me to eat the chocolate? (i still haven't recover from the heatiness). I wonder...

PS: For your information, Chocolate especially RICH CHOCOLATE is really heaty and is bad for your throat. Experienced a change of voice in a masculine voice at later part of the night. My hall friends got a shock of their lifetime as they couldn't recognised me by my voice as i was talking outside their room. So Do Not try eating Rich Choc Cake when you know you shouldn't be eating it.
