Floating fish

We saw a new restaurant in Harbour Square during our last visit, but afloat on Manila Bay rather than being a part of the complex. Does it look like it can actually sail? Even if it doesn't, if the dining area overlooks the bay, it might still be worth trying out. Mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) is a large fish found in warm seas; its flesh is firm, white and very tasty.

Such a gorgeous night photo, Hilda. And you've made this place look good enough to eat in...

Could it be a dinner boat...taking folks out on Manila Bay to dine?

Mahi Mahi is very popular in Florida, but I've never tried it...I think I shall have to do that the next chance I get...

Wow, what beautiful blues in that picture. And very cool design on the boat. That's a great capture!

Now I wish I could go there to try the mahi-mahi...

Must indeed feel like a small holiday being aboard that fish.

Please have a wonderful weekend.

Mahi-Mahi is a delicious fish. They catch a lot of them here.
The shimmering light reflection in the water is beautiful, Hilda.

What a fun place to go and be transported from one's day to day concerns. The lights reflecting on the water are mesmerizing.

I sure have missed visting My Manilla and your terrific posts. Mahi rocks!

James said...

I like Mahi Mahi and I also like the reflection. The lights make a nice blue glow on the water.

Don and Krise said...

I am not a fish eater by any means, but the two I might make an exception for would be Mahi-Mahi or Halibut. They're not too bad if cooked properly.

Have a wonderful weekend Hilda!

I like Mahi-Mahi, and I think I would enjoy dinner aboard this vessel. I know I enjoy this picture. The colors are striking and the reflection in the water is a nice touch.

Ebie said...

Pretty cool reflection. Are they open during the day? It would be fun to dine at the top, I see an umbrella.

I love mahi mahi too.
