Fish & Bloggers World Tour

NO MEAT should be served on the table during the Lenten Season. it only applies for us Catholics. and fish is a good meat substitute. the Philippines already has more than 101 ways of cooking fish due to it's archipelago structure. but how would you like to taste a new type of serving of a common recipe? try something from overseas, let's say. a simple fish-fillet dish from Malaysia, India, Philadelphia, and Japan. a simple dish is different from other countries. and Fish & Co with Yehey had let us to deliver their Fish and Chips in a variety from the four countries i've mentioned

Fish & Co. is the home of the world-famous Fish and Chips. and as global as the brand name is, their Fish and Chips menu also went around the world! you can differentiate the average Fish and Chips from the Fish and Chips Around the World Platter because it contains the taste that will take the four countries to your mouth.

and as to give that experience, bloggers have been invited to "Prep Up" the platter according to the countries they have been assigned to. and as Yehey have been fond of challenges, once again, a race challenge to shop, chop and decorate the platter of
their assigned country. from the start, bloggers wore sash representing the country they belong and running towards the grocery like pageant contestants in a challenge.

for India, the inspiration came from the Hindu god, Vishnu, which is the god of sustenance, life existence and balance. a yellow flower made from lemon rind is placed on top of the fish fillets as an offering to Vishnu and to maintain balance for everything. Indian dishes are known for having a lot of dips and sidings.
