Catch is a new Seafood Restaurant on Legazpi Street that supports sustainable fisheries. I, myself, believe in sustainable seafood because it helps fishermen fight for a fair catch and at the same time, it ensures that there will be populations of freshwater wildlife left in the sea. For that reason alone, I have fallen in love with this place.
Catch is truly a seafood lover’s gem. A smaller pearl that reminds you that in the vast ocean of great eats in this area, there is still that cultivated place that exceeds many expectations.
Aside from seafood, the restaurant also has very decent selection of meat dishes. If you don’t know what you like, the waiters are very friendly and knowledgeable, so don’t be shy to ask them for recommendations.
I was invited to try some of the dishes on the menu including a few items that have yet to be launched: Citrus-Glazed Mahi Mahi with Spinach Risotto, Line-Caught Yellow Fin Tuna with Furikake Crust, Risoni, Olives, and Capers, Seafood Curry, Prawn Tempura with Lemon Aioli, Wild Mushroom, Spinach and Artichoke, White Truffle-scented Risotto, Crispy Pork Belly, and freshly-baked Apple Crumble.
The Mahi-Mahi was cooked just right and the risotto was so rich, creamy, and delicious. I can tell why the Tuna was a crowd favourite. Everything about the dish was perfect. Portion size, flavour, and perfectly-seared tuna loin.
We also tried their Tuna Sisig. It was good but not great. I wasn’t too crazy about the Prawn Tempura. I thought the batter was way too thick and heavy-tasting. I must give props to their risottos. Both Risottos are some of the tastiest I’ve had in a long time. It’s the kind of Risotto that’s guaranteed to make you groan in delight when eating it.
Overall, I was pretty satisfied with most of the dishes offered. There was so much love and thought put into every seasoned plate that was served. Catch is the perfect place to wine and dine on some delicious seafood and I highly recommend you check them out soon.
