    I aways thought we had good seafood until I went to Maui for my honeymoon and realized we don’t have crap! haha!

    We live by the beach, (Southern CA) so we have lots of seafood restaurants. Unfortunately for my husband, since I don’t eat meat, we don’t go anymore. That dessert tray looks so good. I would have not been able to split. I would have had to get my own!

    No better seafood than Southwest Florida’s fresh Grouper and Gulf Shrimp or perhaps Stone Crabs maybe King Klip or Red Snapper…. hopeful they do get messed up by the BP and Obama not fixing the oil spill!

      I’ve never tried Grouper before…

    That all looks delicious! I am jealous!
    I love fried calamari, but haven’t had it in awhile, just because it is “fried”. I also like the look of that salmon plate. Oh, and the key lime pie……You are killing me!
    It is kinda “douche-y” that the waiter would not sub a salad for the potatoes.

      I thought it was weird they didn’t substitute it either. The calamari definitely didn’t FEEL fried! Next time you are in Portland, we’ll have to meet!

        Definitely…..not sure when that will be, but I’ll let you know!

    Beyond canned tuna/salmon and various flash frozen seafood – we just don’t have these options. Lots of land food though – great steaks and such.

    This is living in the Plains!

    I do enjoy some nice scallops and I love going places with good seafood..mmm.

    I’m also surprised about the potatoes/salad thing – I mean most places will do it though some charge a little extra. I never understood why salad is deemed a higher priced item.

      I don’t think I could live without real seafood! Canned doesn’t cut it.

      The BF’s family visits from Texas and they love the seafood here but rave about the steaks back home.

    When I lived back East I missed Bay Shrimp soooooo much. You just couldn’t find it anywhere back there. It’s sooooo good on a salad.

    […] Michael and I ordered the Tender Fried Calamari with Piri Piri Sauce appetizer. I’ve never heard of Piri Piri sauce before–it’s a pepper sauce apparently. It was not spicy, however, in fact it was more sweet than spicy. Michael didn’t like the sauce but since I tend to enjoy sweet things I liked the sauce. The calamari was just okay. It wasn’t anything remarkable and honestly there were too much of the little tiny squids and less rings (which creeps me out). If you are in Portland and want exceptional calamari, go to Jake’s. […]
