1st Anniversary Dinner at Fisherman's Cove

Time flies so fast! Yesterday marked the 1st yr anniversary of my relationship. I purchased Livingsocial cash vouchers for Fisherman's Cove, an elegant restaurant specializing in seafood tucked away in Starhill Gallery. I read reviews and they consistently reported good food and service, as well as a romantic ambiance = win!

The restaurant was relatively quiet considering it's a Friday night; I requested to dine upstairs and we were ushered to a unique dining setting. The furniture and decor projected the feel of a big fishing ship; it might be made complete if the restaurant played music of the sea :D The seats weren't comfortable for him but I guess he's taller so the support isn't there. 

We were served warm sourdough bread and warm water as the crew got to cooking. I asked the waitress if the bread was store-bought and she replied "it's chef's recipe". It was warm + fluffy on the inside + crunchy crust = so delicious, we had to ask for a second helping! I like the wait staff; they know how to be discreet and their timing to appear with our meal/check on us was very good. 

We shared the Fisherman's Cove seafood soup with Boston Bay Scallop
- the soup is sweet and soaked with the taste of yummy yummy scallops, mussels and prawns

Then came the mains: 
1) Mixed seafood spaghetti
- this was really delicious; the spaghetti was not too soft and the seafood was delicious. It came with squid, scallops, prawns, and mussels. 
2) Catch of the day (Garoupa) in Assam style with Rice Vermicelli
- the fish meat was tender and light in flavor; the style is similar to assam laksa, albeit not as sour/pungent. 

Dessert was warm chocolate lava pudding, and dark & white chocolate mousse with nutty chocolate soil. We preferred the latter; the choc lava didn't flow out as much as we'd like it to and the pudding was mediocre. The choc mouse with nutty choc soil was a good sweet finish for the night. 

The price was about RM220+ for 2 pax; this is a bit on the high end but if you're looking for delicious seafood dining with good ambiance and service, you should check out Fisherman's Cove :)
