Tuna, ogo seaweed, onion, cashew nuts, sushi rice. $11.50
Bonito Poke Truck, San Francisco CA
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.
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.
Jicama slaw, tortilla. Happy hour $5
PassionFish, Reston VA
That one piece of fish was SO small! I almost laughed out loud when I saw it. I know that they’re trying to keep costs down for happy hour, but this was ridiculous! They also poured wine really lightly – lame.
Tomatillo-pineapple puree, mango salsa, jicama and lime buttermilk. $28
Saltrock Southwest Kitchen, Sedona AZ
This swordfish was dry and overcooked, and overpriced at twenty-eight bucks. This lame dish matched their lame service. Good to know that they’re at least consistent.
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.
One of my favorite homes in Noe Valley.
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.
Wow, this was really tasty! I loved the texture of the snapper and the subtle sauce with grated daikon were perfect components to compliment the delicate flavor of the fish. The presentation was also very clean and pretty. Pre fixe dinner
