Who would have thought that the movie “Deuce Bigelow” would be the source of inspiration for a fish and chips stall? 

Miguel Gregorio, the owner of Hey Fishy Fishy, actually wanted something that is different and unique. He conceptualized this food business and launched it in Mezza Norte weekend market last January 2013. His main product and bestseller, the basic fish and chips, is affordable at P120 and comes with the traditional tartar sauce. 

What makes his product unique is that he uses beer batter to coat the fish—and no other than San Miguel Pale Pilsen. The beer adds an indescribable yet distinct flavor to the fish, making it yummier than usual. This dish is best eaten right away, while still hot and fresh. I am not surprised why this has been a favorite of Miguel’s family—their comfort food, in fact.

This foodie-slash-entrepreneur is actually not new to the food industry. He used to work with Pino Restaurant and he also took up a culinary course in Global Academy last 2012. Although he currently has a day job and is juggling both work and own business, he manages to balance everything by learning to train people the correct cooking skill. He makes sure that his staff knows how to make fish and chips with the ideal batter consistency and right seasoning.

Aside from the basic fish and chips, Hey Fishy Fishy also has the Bayou, a seafood sampler with beer-battered fish, shrimp, squid and seasoned fries, which comes with both tartar and barbecue sauce. This is perfect for those who just love seafood! The serving is good for sharing as well.

Watch for the new offerings of Hey Fishy Fishy soon. Miguel discloses, “We’re still trying to come up with other recipes like fish tacos, fish burgers…” 

I can’t wait to sink my teeth into more fishy goodness.
