Ate dinner at Thirsty Marlin tonight. There are so many things on their menu that sound good, it’s hard to choose sometimes. We started off with a Rainbow Roll.
I’ve found sushi to be hit or miss here. The fish is usually good, but the rice isn’t always quite right. Tonight’s rice was a bit too dense, but otherwise the roll was good. Loren & I split a bowl of lobster bisque, though I really didn’t want to share.
It had a wonderful creamy texture and amazing flavor. I kept trying to pull the bowl closer to my end of the table. Loren went for a lightly blackened mahi sandwich tonight.
He said the fish was tasty. You never quite know what you’re going to get when you say lightly blackened, but they did it pretty well. I went for a mushroom swiss burger.
I only managed to eat half of it. It was cooked a nice medium and had good flavor to it, but between the soup and sushi, I was getting full… not to mention I had my eye on the fried cheesecake.
I’m always intrigued by how different restaurants interpret a dish. I’ve had different versions of fried cheesecake and this one was pretty good. It sits on a layer of Oreo cookie crumbs and the cheesecake is wrapped and deep fried, so you get a crunchy outer layer and creamy interior. Just add chocolate sauce and whipped cream and you’ve got yourself a yummy little dessert. Total bill with a drink was $44.
