The Best Catch: Cargofish

by - Thursday, April 27, 2017

I've always been a fan of fish and chips, so of all the newly opened restaurants, I think this has been the one place I wasn't able to wait to try. 

We visited this place as part of our Uptown Mall foodcrawl, but when we arrived at around 2pm, the place was still closed. We were told that it will open around 6pm, so we made it our last stop instead.

Cargofish looks like a pop-up booth situated just outside the mall's food hall, near the entrance to one of the building's office tower. It offers a mix and match of fish, sides and sauce of your own choosing. It's that simple. 

Step 1: Choose your battered fish
  • Dory P165
  • Tilapia P215
  • Cobbler P265
  • Cod P325
  • Salmon P355
  • Scampi P305

Step 2: Choose 2 sides
  • Chips
  • Onion Rings
  • Proper Chips
  • Slaw Salad
  • Cargo Rice
Step 3: Choose 1 sauce
  • Seafood Barbeque
  • Honey Jalapeno
  • Tartar
  • Chip Shop Curry
  • Mushy Peas
  • Lime Chili Cilantro
  • Roasted Garlic
Sauce Recommended by Cargofish: Chip Shop Curry and Tartar Sauce

Cod Fish and Chips P325
With Sweet Potatoes, Cargo Rice and Tartar Sauce. We confused the dory with cod because it tasted similar, until owner Matthew pointed out that the difference lies in the texture of the fishes. The cargo rice was a bit dry to me. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be like that, or I'm just not a fan of fish with rice. The sweet potatoes were delicious! The cod tasted heavenly with the tartar sauce. Classic! 

The whole thing was packaged in a sturdy, slide-to-open box, perfect for a to-go meal. 

Fish and Chips Cone P99
We were told that the fish and chips cone contains all dory, but I was surprised to pick up a salmon in there. Lucky for us, the first few customers of Cargofish gets a mix of fish inside a fish and chips cone. 

I enjoyed my fish and chips so much that I wanted to come back the minute I left. It didn't help that I've been seeing more and more reviews about stuff I haven't tried from this establishment. I want more. I'll be back. Soon.

My Score:
Pricing - 4/5
Service - 5/5
Ambiance - 3/5
Taste -  4/5
