Chuck's Grub: Fish & Chips

We've been hearing a lot of raves about Chuck's Grub Fish & Chips.  So when we stopped over at Rockwell Powerplant, we didn't let the chance pass.  It was located along the food stalls at the back part of Rustan's Supermarket

The area has no tables even for standing so it was a bit tricky to eat there especially with the sauce and all.

Seeing it being featured in various food magazines and other forms of publication heightened our expectation.

We, Tsinoy Foodies, have to admit that we are not experts when it comes to fish.  So its a good thing there's a fish handy fact sheet that served as our guide when we were deciding on what to order.  

fish and chips
Each order was served in a cone-shaped carton.  It contained a slice of lemon, 2 pieces of fish and some chips.  It also comes with one sauce of your choice.

After squeezing the lemon.  Fellow Tsinoy Foodie Kurt munched on his Beer-Battered Snapper and dipped it the delicious Garlic Mayo Sauce. He found the firm fish meat and rich fishy flavor to his liking.  However, we were both disappointed with the second piece because it tasted strongly of mud.  We couldn't eat it in disgust. If you think about it... A piece of Beer-Battered Snapper almost costs 80 php so we literally threw that amount of food away.  =(

I got the Beer-Battered Cobbler & Chips.  The beer-batter coating is very thin and crispy.  I'd say the consistency is very good.  In terms of flavor, it is pretty good.  But, not the best we've had.  It was really tender, succulent and mild tasting.  Because of its flaky texture, I barely needed to chew.  I chose the Good Old Vinegar as sauce which in my opinion is a wrong choice.  I should've opted for the Tartar Sauce.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Chuck's Grub is worth a try!  It's great that they have a lot of fish selections.  I'm even considering coming back to try the Beer-Battered Halibut & Chips priced at 280 php.  But, our experience with Kurt's Beer-Battered Snapper & Chips is drawing us back.  We thought the disproportionality of the price and the serving size would at least be compensated by control but it failed us.  What do you think?
