EAT | SelFish

During the week I find my self eating frequently at the food court of the nearest mall. I don' have the time or patience to go home, make food, clean up and still do whatever I need to do before going to bed. But I don't want to eat fast food all the time. And Selfish presents a great alternative to your regular type of fast food. What do they serve? Fresh, top quality - grilled on the spot - fish.


Yep -- Salmon, Tuna an Flatfish. And it is so so good. They serve salmon and tuna burgers -- which I love. They also have braised salmon and tuna stakes, and salmon tartar! It's is truly divine, specially when we are talking about a fast-food joint! You can also add a sauce -- Lemon&Butter, Teriyaki or Soy -- and two side dishes, that are also very creative, healthy and flavorful. You can choose from your typical white rice or salad, or rosemary roasted potatoes, mashed-potatoes with saffron or slow roasted vegetables. To drink, they have a refreshing and tasteful mint lemonade, that has real pieces of mint in it. Wonderful.
I've eaten there maybe 10 times in the past two months.  The food is always delightful. The real problem is the service.
There are only 5 location in the whole country: Almada, Amoreiras, Cascais, Colombo and Gaia. I've only been to one of them -- in CC Colombo -- and the staff there are kinda rude and it feels like they are not happy to work there. And I don't know about you, but I enjoy the experience of eating out --  even if it's not in an actual restaurant --  if I'm paying for something I like people to be nice to me. But that always blows away as soon as I take my first bite.

Eating there is more expensive than eating on a regular fast-food place, of course. You are heating fresh fish, and quality and freshness are not cheap. The prices range from 7.50€ to 12.50€, being the burgers the cheapest thing on the menu, and the braised tuna stake the more expensive item.


My favorite combination -- so far --  is the salmon burger, Lemon&Butter Sauce, roasted vegetables and Mashed-potatoes with saffron, which is what you are seeing here in the picture.

If you come by one of these restaurants, give it a try. I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.

  6. Tenho que admitir que não sou grande fã de peixe e como também são raras as vezes em que almoço/janto no centro comercial quando o faço aproveito para comer fast food!

    Beijinhos, Hellen
