When I’m missing the fish and chips from my local chippy back home in London, Big Fish Little Fish is one of the places I go to satisfy those cravings. Although not exactly traditional British fish and chips, they certainly fry up a good fish and the “chips” are actually super crunchy and highly addictive hand cooked crisps. With several branches in Singapore, I like to frequent the one in Punggol East Container Park where the staff are fast, friendly and helpful or if I’m feeling lazy then I’ll get it delivered by Honestbee Food Delivery.
The branch in Punggol East is small and cozy, after all it is in a shipping container and although practically in the middle of nowhere it definitely drives crowds of Punggol residents there for lunch and dinner. Orders can be placed at the till or at their self ordering kiosk and shortly after, your piping hot made-to-order food is available for collection for either takeaway or you can make yourself comfortable at one of the tables inside or outside.
On a recent visit there, I decided to try something other than the usual fish and crisps that I normally get so I went for the Salted Egg Calamari with Bonito Flakes ($8.80++) and couldn’t resist a side of their Fresh Potato Crisps ($4.80++) to go with it as well as a Teh Tarik ($2.80++). Hubby got a Homemade Lemonade ($3.50++) and a Dory and Pilaf Rice ($8.80++).
My Salted Egg Calamari with Bonito Flakes was nice, the batter on the calamari was a little bit too thick for my liking but it had a good crunch to it and was not oily and was generously covered in bonito flakes and mayonnaise. The Fresh Potato Crisps were as good as always, thin and crunchy and lightly flavoured with salt and paprika. They’re also delicious dipped in one of several sauces that you can help yourself to and if you can’t finish all the crisps, they come in a handy takeaway box.
Hubby enjoyed his Dory and Pilaf Rice, the fish was perfectly cooked with a thick crunchy batter and the light fluffy pilaf rice is a good option for those that want an alternative to having crisps. It did come with a small portion of crisps though which was nice.
The Homemade Lemonade was lovely and refreshing and I wish I had got that instead of my Teh Tarik which was awful and tasted a bit like tea mixed with Milo. Oh well at least we got 50% off the drinks and food having made a reservation on Eatigo for the discount. The total cost of everything was only around $15! They also have “tunch deals” i.e. from lunch to teatime (12pm – 5pm) where you can get a main, soup and drink for as little as $8.90.
