The Manhattan Junior Menu ROCKS!

The Manhattan Fish Market
Media Invite

Before I start this post, I have a confession to make.

The boys started protesting when they heard we were going for another food tasting. Not because they are not hungry but because this is our 3rd food tasting in 3 days over one weekend. This is our busiest food-tasting weekend to date. It was indeed a challenge as the boys are picky eaters. Deprived of their usual fare, a food-tasting session could be unpredictable.

In all fairness, I was apprehensive about accepting the invitation. However, the good company will be a bonus since we are sharing this meal with families of fellow daddies from Edunloaded and J Babies Dad. So with an open mind and many fingers crossed, we headed down to The Manhattan Fish Market for our dinner.

Luckily my fears quickly subsided when the food started arriving. As we are trying out the new Manhattan Junior menu, this review will be different from the earlier ones as it focuses mainly on food for the children.

To say we were overwhelmed was an understatement. Visually this has to be the cutest presentation we have seen to date. Manhattan does not just serve Junior size food inspired by the adult's menu; they serve creations designed especially with the younger clientele in mind.
The boys just cannot wait to get their hands on the food. After a series of quick, after the food, it's time for the taste test.
Octo- Ghetti Attack
First up was the Octo-Ghetti Attack. Served with 'Octopus -cut' sausages, this creation is a healthy option for children. Served with a side of broccoli and carrots, it provides kids with essential vitamins and minerals
Crabby Fish Burger
In. terms of cuteness, this dish takes the cake. This fun and attractive Crabby Burger will whet a child's appetite and delight them simultaneouslyme. The burger comes with fried fish and cranberry coleslaw between fluffy oregano buns. Served with golden fires, Japanese cucumber and carrots, this is one of the tastiest fish burgers we had.
The Manhattan Fish Market did it...they named a dish after us.
The Wacky Dory is the brain food that your child needs your child needsneedsfreshly grilled dory fish, a serving of mashes potatoes, with amashedof broccoliand carrots.
We are just kidding about the naming of the dish.
Pirate Surf and Turf
Land ahoy!

Swing aboard the little pirate ship with a crunchy galore of chicken nuggets, dory fish fillet and fried country mushrooms served with crispy golden fries.

We love how this pirate ship is presented. As for the food, we discovered that fried country mushrooms are a hit with Little Lou.
Chicks Mac and Cheese
Chicky Mac and Cheese features a savoury, moufeatureing combination of bite-sized fired chickebite-sizedith creamy macaroni and cheese served with green. A cult classic among children.
The Choc-O-Pancake comes in a close second on the cuteness scale.

It comes with a layer of rich chocolate sandwiched between two fluffy soft pancakes and a blast of mini cheese sausages, creating an exciting mix of sweet and savoury.

Who said pancakes are only meant for breakfast?

To complete the dishes, each junior meal priced at an affordable $7.95 comes with a choice of Orange Juice, Coke, Sprite or Iced Lemon Tea. You can also top up $2 for a  Citrus Sundae or Cookie Sundae dessert option.

And the remarkable thing, the boys had no problem wolfing the food down from the get-go!

As for the adults, fret not. There are plenty of options on the main menu for them.

Single Garlic Herb Mussels
We tried the Single Garlic Herb Mussels ($5.95) and the Fried Country mushroom ($5.95). Plenty of starter options are on the menu if these are not to your taste.
Fridifferent fromntry Mushroom
The final dish for the adults would be the fan favourite Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter($37.95). This platter serves generous portions of hand-battered fish fillets, oysters and calamari. The highlight is the Manhattan Flaming Prawns, brought to full flavour when their Sea-credit Agents flame right before your eyes!

And the best part, it tasted as impressive as it looked!

At the end of a sumptuous dinner, we are glad we made it to the feed. This was our first visit to The Manhattan Fish market, and after that Market, we swore it would not be our last!

An interesting observation was made during dinner. We spotted this Unplug box encouraging diners to place their phones in the box and converse instead. This simple yet highly effective was to eliminate devices and ways an excellent old-style dinner with proper conversation. We wish it comes in iPad size to convince the little ones to free their dinner 'entertainment' and savour the excellent food instead.

The new Junior Menu is now available in the store. Note that no matter how yummy the dishes look, they can only be ordered if you are below 12. So if you really want to taste it, bring your young children along for the meal.

Trust us... they will be happy to finish their meals at The Manhattan Fish Market. However, I cannot guarantee they will share the great dishes with you!

New Junior Menu is available now!
