Diner Food

We were in Seminole today and stopped at Mama’s Kitchen for brunch.  The place was packed and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table.  In typical diner fashion, they had a wide variety of things on the menu.  Loren decided to try the Greek Salmon.

It was salmon with sauteed spinach, tomatoes and feta cheese with green beans and mashed potatoes.  We’re still not sure why the gravy is that color of yellow.   He said the salmon was pretty good, the potatoes tasted like they were out of a box, and the green beans weren’t anything special.   I went for the Eggs Benedict with hash browns.

Again, the food was just ok.  The poached eggs were cooked right, but the rest of it lacked any sort of seasoning or flavor.  Overall, there was nothing to make us want to come back again.  Total bill with a drink was $25

We had a $25 off if you order $50 at Fuji Yama in Seminole so off we went in search of sushi.

It’s a small restaurant and wasn’t very busy for a Friday night.  It’s located in a strip mall.   Loren started off with a ginger salad.

Then we ordered lots of sushi.

I admit, I always order too much sushi because I just want to try lots of different things.  We got 2 pieces of salmon and my usual California roll and Mexican roll.  We also got a Cosmo roll: snow crab, scallop, tuna, avacado inside topped w/ salmon, escolar, tuna, roe and sauce; a Norway roll: Tuna, avacado, snowcrab inside topped w/ salmon, sauce, and roe; a Tony roll: Tuna, avacado, cream cheese topped w/ roe, sriracha sauce; and a Lobster roll.

Overall, the sushi was good, but not spectacular.  The “sauce” that was drizzled over some of the rolls was too overpowering.  You couldn’t really taste much else.  The rice didn’t have any flavor to it, the Nori was difficult to bite through, and Loren thought the eel sauce tasted like maple syrup. 

The Tony roll which we thought was going to be spicy, wasn’t spicy at all and the Norway roll which I didn’t anticipate being spicy was.   

After the $25 coupon, it still cost us $70.  Granted, I ordered at least one roll too many and we do have leftovers for later, but there wasn’t anything about the meal that would tempt me to go back again.
