Clams, mussels, crab, shrimp, calamari, fish filet, potatoes, carrots, onions, olives, garlic, corn in a spicy cioppino sauce. Couple $49.99
The Old Clam House, San Francisco CA
OMG, this was SO much food! This was pretty much a small pail of cioppino for only two people, and it was SO delicious! I liked that the sauce was on the spicy side. Most cioppinos are kinda bland these days. This cioppino was also packed with seafood. This was definitely worth it, and I would go back for this dish. Noms!
Hyderabadi Biryani Corner, Herndon VA
I liked this fish curry. It had a great flavor and the fish was tender and juicy. I just wish there was more fish in the curry.
Breaded with panko crumbs, served with malt vinegar, tartar sauce, and signature garlic fries. $17.99
Gordon Biersch, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
This plate was absolutely disgusting! The fist was so thickly battered (where was the panko breading btw?) and super greasy! I couldn’t even eat it. Even the fries, which were definitely cooked in the same horrible oil were hard and just tasted of grease. I want to barf just thinking of this atrocity!!
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.
