This is the first of what will become many more installments titled “Grindz of the Day”. A random brief of simply what myself and/or those around me have enjoyed eating for the day, with, or without going into details about the establishment or preparation method at hand. The creed being “Have Food. Have Camera. Have Keyboard. Will Blog It.”
Pictured above is “The Reuben” that Diner “E” sampled yesterday from Matters of Taste in Gentry Pacific Design Center on Nimitz highway, located just inside the main entrance. While he enjoyed it, he felt the price was a bit steep and stands by Kenny’s as having the best Reuben yet.
Lately for me, Friday’s have been all about fish, so I went with the Mahimahi plate from Zippy’s…
Notice how I substituted fries instead of rice, which you can do by request at no extra charge. I do this to convert it from a plate lunch into a unique version of Fish ‘N Chips. Cool, huh?
It was very moist, tender and flavorful. Only thing I didn’t care for was that the panko crust was too crunchy and thick, which kinda’ defeated the delicate texture of the Mahi’.
It includes two packets of Kraft brand Tartar sauce, which is inferior to house-made sauce, but it works.. Actually, I’d much rather have Cocktail sauce, with that tomato-based Horseradish kick.
I’m also not a fan of shoe-string fries like those Zippy’s serves, but at least they’re cooked and seasoned perfectly and not overdone, which many places often do with this kind of cut.
Lastly, I opted for the tossed greens instead of Mac’ to offset the all that deep-fried goodness and keep the health factor in check. At least psychologically it feels so.
