Repent, Repent! The End is Near!


And so yet another weekend comes to an end.....

Anyway, the usual weekly dinner (on a Friday this time) was at the Fisherman's Cove in the new Star Hill food avenue:

The Dinner:

The food was good, ......
(although I must say, the appetizers are severely overpriced! - I'm sure Kwong Heng will agree *lol*)
..... the evening was started off with a simple (and TINY) welcome appetizer, compliments of the restaurant, a morsel of zuchinni topped with a refreshing vinaigrette (don't blink, you might miss it)...


..... then, the various appetizers rolled in. Here's Kwong Heng enjoying his delicious RM26/++ appetizer which was basically a small serving of soba and 4 slivers of scallop (beautifully presented of course, but just so small)....

Kwong Heng sez: Yum Yum

..... and on the other extreme, here's Pat working hard to fend off freeloaders from his tempting bowl of seafood soup (he reports that it tastes good and the serving size is generous)....

Gwumpy Pat

..... Soon after, the main dishes were served (being a seafood restaurant, the fish dishes that we ordered were great - fresh and succulent, prepared in a simple yet delicious fusion Western-Asian style). Here's Vikram, Jo and Serina enjoying their food...

Vik, Jo and Serina stuffing their faces

Overall, it was a good dinner: Attentive service, tasty food, a wide selection of wines and nice ambience which was, of course, amplified by good company and conversation.

The moral of the Cove is: Order the seafood! - It is very fresh and very yummy indeed.
(We had some dinner attendees who ordered the pasta and other non-seafood items - not very impressive/ worth it)

Better still, instead of ordering off the generic ala carte selection, do what Vik and Jo did:
Order a whole fish (fresh from the tank), select one of the various preparation styles and munch happily at the slightly more expensive, but much larger serving that you will get.

Full stomachs, happy faces
