Soul Fish platter – Soul Fish Cafe

Soul Fish platter - Soul Fish Cafe
Fried catfish, shrimp, and crawfish served with hushpuppies and cucumber salad. $14.75
Soul Fish Cafe, Memphis TN

Omg, this was SO much fried food! I liked most of it, but the shrimp and crawfish were kinda dry. The hushpuppies were also kinda greasy. I’m glad I chose the cucumber salad for something more fresh to balance all the fried items. The fried catfish was probably the most decent part of this platter.

Fritto misto – Pesce

Fritto misto - Pesce
Calamari, shrimp, fennel, green beans, zucchini, marinara. $14
Pesce, San Francisco CA

Mmm, I love fritto mistos! Who doesn’t love a plate of battered and deep fried seafood and vegetables?! I thought the marinara sauce was a little lame, but I’m not gonna complain too much. 🙂

Fall Smash cocktail - Pesce

Ostrega oyster shots – Pesce

Ostrega oyster shots - Pesce
With cucumber, cocktail sauce, horseradish. Each $3
Pesce, San Francisco CA

I don’t know about these. I’m not a big horseradish fan with oysters and these just had a lot of murky liquid in the glass that scared me off. I definitely spent more time worrying about taking the oyster shot than actually enjoying it. It wasn’t bad, but my it was too much work for me to shoot it.

Bad Boy cocktail - Pesce
Bad Boy: Tito’s vodka, tobacco leaf tincture, orange bitters. $10

Mmm, I love getting served poolside. You don’t have to get up or expend and energy, AHHHH! The East Wing pool had menus from Chistina’s that you could order from so we got an afternoon snack to tide us over before dinner. This is why I have to work out every day, lol! (When I’m not on vacation.)

Beef shawarma – Leylam Shawarma

Beef shawarma - Leylam Shawarma
With cabbage, cucumber, hummus and tahini sauce wrapped in lavash bread. 59 PHP
Leylam Shawarma, Boracay PHILIPPINES

I don’t remember too much about this shawarma – just that I was starving after our first night out in Boracay, lol! It was cheap, quick, and on the way back to the hotel. Looking back at the pic, I guess it wasn’t very big. Maybe that’s why I had a hangover in the morning. 😉
