This was pretty tasty. It sure was small, but I did love the flavors. I just felt sad when I ate the whole thing and was still hungry after spending 12 bucks.

Rockfish – Volt

Rockfish - Volt
Kohlrabi, szechuan lemon oil, dill. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD

Mmm, this was delicious! And it wasn’t even on the tasting menu – they just brought it out as an extra. Not that I needed more food, I was getting pretty full at this point in the meal. I’m glad I tried this though. The rockfish was cooked beautifully, but I particularly liked the kohlrabi puree.

Seared steelhead salmon – Contigo

Seared steelhead salmon - Contigo
Roe, cured mojama, parsnip puree, brussels sprouts, capers, cava butter sauce. Tapas tasting menu
Contigo, San Francisco CA

This was an interesting dish for me. The combination of ingredients was one I hadn’t experienced before, and I’d never had mojama either. I actually thought it was dried prosciutto before I looked at the menu description again. The salmon was good, but I thought it was a bit overcooked. I liked the crispy skin though and the overall flavors of the dish were pleasant.

Ceviche tostadas – Frida’s Mexican Grill

Ceviche tostadas - Frida's Mexican Grill
Three tostaditas with fresh fish ceviche and avocado. Happy hour $4
Frida’s Mexican Grill, Napa CA

These definitely weren’t the best ceviche I’ve ever had, but I will say that they were a steal at only four bucks. The fish was a bit on the grainy side and it was overall on the acidic side. Thank goodness for the avocado slice that helped mellow it out.
