I loved this restaurant. The food was delicious, unique, and actually spicy. This dried fish paste served with pork rinds was great and definitely woke up the palate.

Crab cake minis, crispy shrimp and calamari, trio of dipping sauces. $14.49
Phillips Famous Seafood, Charlotte International Airport (CLT)

Ew, this was disgusting! Everything on this plate was dry, over-fried, and flavorless. Even the crab cakes were from the fryer. Who cooks crab cakes in a fryer?! Gross.

Dynamite Wasabi: tuna, salmon, yellow tail, wasabi fish roe. $8.50
Raku, Washington DC

These rolls were ok. The sushi rice was really dry though so I couldn’t get over that part. I liked the flavors of both, but they were difficult to eat because of the crappy rice.

Chicken fried steak – The Firkin & Fox

Chicken fried steak - The Firkin & Fox
Battered and fried steak with country gravy and whipped potatoes. $11
The Firkin & Fox, Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)

The exterior of this chicken fried steak was a bit hard, but I kinda liked it. The interior was still juicy and not over done so I didn’t mind the hard coating. It also prevented the gravy from soaking into the steak. I normally would prefer it to, but maybe that much gravy isn’t the best to eat right before boarding a flight, lol!
