Cover Feature: Craving For Crustaceans – The Manhattan Fish Market (The Foodie Magazine, May 2014)


As a Singapore franchise, Manhattan Fish Market was launched in Jakarta a few years ago. Since their restaurant concept was all about serving the diversity of seafood and having the freshest catch of the day, their name is inspired by New York’s famed Fulton Fish Market.


Seafood has always been known to be colorful in presentation and they should always be. That’s why one should not dare to miss the seafood platters that have become the signature dishes at MFM.


With so many combinations of the platters, the flaming lobster set for us is the biggest treat, complete with fish fingers, garlic herb mussels, and fried calamari, it will definitely end the hunt for great seafood lovers. Another MFM delight is the Manhattan Flaming Prawns which made us fall in love instantly. The fancy dish is all about perfectly grilled tiger prawns and fries blanketed with a rich and special mayonnaise sauce, flamed with the torch, you can enjoy sweetness from the caramelization. Even before that, MFM will make you excited with the whole torching process. Surely you can imagine what happens to the dish after thoroughly served to you? Squeaky clean!
