Healthier Food Review: Fish & Co Under 500-Calorie Meals

Do you know that Fish & Co. is a restaurant started by a Singaporean? I always thought that it’s a chain from Australia or the US, but was pleasantly surprised to find it is a homegrown brand through and through. I’ve been frequenting Fish & Co. since JC days  when it was no longer acceptable to have class gatherings at Seoul Garden (blast from the past, that!). We would go to Fish & Co. in a big group and order their Seafood Platters to share among 3 or even 4 people because back then it was expensive, and considered a treat. As I grew older however, it became the norm to just share it with another person, but sometimes we’ll not be able to finish it especially if I share it with another girl!

That’s why we can now rejoice because Fish & Co. has come up with 11 dishes under 500 calories, for times when you really just don’t want to overeat as part of HPB's Healthier Dining Programme.

What I had the incredible chance to do is to review ALL 11 dishes during a food tasting at the Fish & Co. Novena Square branch. I definitely overate, but I took a long walk to the train station after that to digest. Between the 4 of us we also did not manage to finish everything, but we gave it a good try.

My top 3 favorite dishes among the 11 would be:

1. Grilled White Fish with Peri-Peri Sauce (483Kcal), pictured at 8.

The Fish & Co. rice has always been a favorite of mine because I love the little raisins in them, but also because they are always fragrant and satisfying. Coupled with the piquant peri-peri sauce on the fresh white fish, and you’ve got yourself a winner.

2. Baked Salmon with Citrus Crust (437Kcal), pictured at 5.

I really enjoyed the crumbly crust on the salmon, which again was cooked to perfection and fresh to the bite. The seasonal vegetables were really lightly flavored so I could taste the original flavors of the vegetables themselves! Of course, the mushroom cream sauce was heavenly when paired with the salmon and good to every last drop.

3. Mediterranean Pizza (464Kcal), pictured at number 3.

My bestie’s favorite, the vegetarian Mediterranean pizza was a surprise hit among all the seafood! The pizza was covered with generous coatings of tomato sauce and mozzarella, and some herbs and olives as well. Simple, but sometimes it's the most difficult to do well! The thin crust also helped to make this dish much lighter than normal pizzas.

The rest of the 11 were yummy too, so don’t let my word be the final one. Did my review made you hungry? Fish & Co.’s store locator is here! Do make a mental note to order these healthier options, and get your Healthy Go Lucky card stamped in return. Good luck, and be healthy!
