Fish out of Water

I have been wanting to try out this place for quite some time already so when a number of friends wanted to get-together and have dinner at Fish Out of Water, I have to admit that the first thing that I thought of was "FINALLY!" :)

The setup or ambiance was leaning more on modern style but still a bit homey. What the place offers is 'fusion'. A combination of Mediterranean cuisine with a local twist. Service was great as well, the crew is very attentive and all-smiles.

On to the food....

Smoked Fish Pizza - Not your usual pizza. The smoked fish was just the right taste and its combination with the veggie toppings was just perfect. It can be shared by 2-3 persons.

Labahita ala Bacalao Pasta - Also not your usual pasta dish. It's Linguini pasta with Labahita (fish) flakes.

Twiced Cooked Pork Belly with Shitake Leek Mashed Potatoes - Another yummy and "big" dish. It may look small in the pic but it can really be shared by up to 4 persons. Almost everybody got to taste this dish.

Crispy Garlic Catfish - that's not really the name of the dish.. I forgot it. :| I think that best describes it anyway. :P

Paella - There's a choice between beef or seafood. I really think the Seafood Paella's serving is bigger. I wasn't able to take a pic of that one though. I'd recommend that people should opt for that one instead of the beef.

And of course.. Dessert! :)

Barako Cheesecake - We really liked this one! Coffee-flavored Cheesecake, though after several bites your tastebuds will be searching for the cheesecake flavor because the coffee will be overpowering it. It's coffee and dessert in one. :)

Greenbelt 5, Makati City

Try it out! :D

I'm out.

I'm a purist when it comes to cheesecake so I don't like anything overpowering it. The pork belly looks very good!
