A charming hideaeway in Sathorn Soi 10, Miss Fish BKK began life in March this year as a fulfilment of its founders’ dream of a specialty fish restaurant in the city. As someone who’s also been on the lookout for a good chippy in Bangkok, I was delighted to meet a team that shared not only my love for all things fish-related, but of the quintessential beer-battered fish and chips classic. With a concept that focuses on 100 percent fresh, premium fish; sustainable ingredients; an incredible array of recipes; and support of local businesses; Miss Fish is a definite go-to for a weekend brunch or shared meal with loved ones.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Although the cosy restaurant is tucked away within Sathorn, it’s hard to miss because of the riot of colour in the eye-catching mural that greets you as you pass by. Inside, the space is done up in soothing shades of pink and blue, with woven faux-chandeliers made of beads that underscore the relaxed vibe of a beachside holiday. On a ‘brick’ accent wall to the side is the requisite, Instagram-worthy neon sign proclaiming a love for fish and chips, while you’re provided a range of bench-style seating, bar stools by the open kitchen for those who want to watch the magic happen, and contemporary chairs in royal blue that were both striking and extremely comfortable.

FOOD AND DRINK

Miss Fish’s Executive Chef Radek, originally hails from Poland but has a wealth of Michelin-starred experience from around the world, the latest of which was at 2-Michelin-starred Gaggan as its sous-chef. Hearing this, I was eager to try his take on seaside favourites, especially as I’d sampled – and loved – his LA-styled Mexican cuisine at Cholos, which was founded by the same team.

As someone who’s been looking for a decent fish and chips dish since my uni days in the UK, I chose to dive straight into their Beer battered cod fish (THB 320), served with your choice of a side, in our case, sweet potato shoestring fries. A heaping portion covered with a generous serving of batter, the crunch was exactly what I was looking for, while the fish inside was flaky and delicious, especially when paired with their signature tartare sauce. I was most surprised by their Battered vegan fish (THB 430) option, however, which mimicked the texture of fish very well, and whose vegan tartare sauce was surprisingly creamy.

The restaurant also offers an array of burgers with their signature, artisanal potato buns, made fresh in-house daily. While their Can’t “beet” this (THB 200) vegan option, with a grilled beetroot patty, was light on the palate and provided a nice kick courtesy of their wasabi yuzu mayo; my favourite was The Malibu (THB 310), made with a medium-rare grilled tuna, which was as substantial as a perfectly-cooked steak but not as heavy. Our team unanimously loved the Miss fish royale (THB 260), made with breaded Mahi Mahi fish and more of their flavourful tartare sauce, which, paired with their buns, was moreish in the extreme.

Any of their dishes can be complemented with your choice of Regular sides (THB 70), but I would recommend shelling out for their Premium sides (THB 200) which include their sizeable onion rings, which are packed with flavour and clearly made fresh rather than frozen; and their Gouda cheese pillows, served piping hot with a rich, oozing centre. Make sure to have them with their wealth of signature sauces, ranging from their refreshing Yoghurt cucumber dill (THB 30) to their indulgent and savoury Mentaiko mayo (THB 150), made with fish roe.

Having watched with alacrity the rise in popularity of rice bowls, I was excited to add Miss Fish’s offerings, served with grilled fish, to my list of recommendations. Not to be missed is their Seoul bowl (starting at THB 300) with their signature Gochujang sauce and cabbage kimchi, which has all the piquant Korean flavours that I personally enjoy. For those following the keto diet, cauliflower rice is available upon request.

Finally, we ended our lavish spread with their Chocolate marshmallow and Blueberry cheesecake ice cream sandwiches (THB 170) which were both the perfect frozen and textural treat, but my slightly peculiar suggestion would be to sample their Yora Fish sauce caramel (THB 120) ice cream. Despite its unusual ingredients, it really was a scrumptious blend of salty and sweet, and no better way to end a meal that celebrates all things fish.

MASALA RECOMMENDS

The Green goddess (starting at THB 320) rice bowl, packed with peas, asparagus, broccoli, and creamy guacamole, for everything you need in a single, guilt-free but flavourful serving.

Look out for their brand-new dinner menu coming out this month, which will feature even more fish-based recipes, including pastas, seafood tapas, and more. At night, Miss Fish will transform into a relaxed, supper-club vibe with their new range of ‘Miss Fish After Dark’ drinks.
