Seafood platter from Fish & Co @ Paragon

I've noticed that the prawns in the Fish & Co here (290 Orchard Rd, #B1-35/36 Paragon, S238859, tel: 6733 0938) are meatier and the seafood platter for two comes with scallops instead of mussels. The portions have fortunately remained as large as I remember them to be and most of the time, I find it quite difficult to want to order anything else than this. The wok is laden with the usual suspects of the grilled prawns, very generous portions of salty peppered grilled squid, four scallops, a very forgettable fish fillet, the delicious orange raisin rice and fries. All good to go into the gut with the sourish spicy chilli and dragon breath inducing chopped garlic. However, prices seem to have gone up from what I recall last by about $7 or so. I'm not sure if it's just this particular outlet or has it gone up across the board for all the other outlets as well.

Another regular item on their menu which I've only started ordering quite recently are the mussels in garlic butter. More than a half dozen mussels swimming in a garlicky butter broth which makes good dips for bread. Yep, even the uninteresting foccacia at this place become tasty after a couple of dunks in that creamy and heart clogging broth which happens to be excellent when slathered over the rice in the seafood platter too. It's been around for ages and I've only started realizing them last year.
