flavor town


A
s we ease on down the road we are slowly able to start taking bland out and putting flavor back in, this isnt to say that what we were eating didnt have flavor because it did but it was lacking a little umami.



Well the umami train pulled in the station and we got in the first car because we knew what kind of ride we wanted. Grilled tilapia with a couli of juneberries and coriander.




I feel like a rocket man when I look at this fish.



It must be the sauce.



A seafood tamale made sure we got to flavor town on time.

oh, man....how can anybody say that they don't like fish at all....the grilled tilapia look gorgeous....but question: are you sure the portion is right? Isn't it just too little? I need at least 3 fish fillets...no kidding....

man, throw the word "umami" around and you're bound to impress. Must use that word to describe my food next time I fail. lol.

Jenn said...

donna: octopus, shrimp and fish - a loaded tamale

5 star: they might be hard to find on a retail level

tavolini: I did go a little frou frou on the radish I guess

girli: I have to make tamales a few times a year - I cant only have them over the christmas holiday

kenny: it might just be the mexican version of the zongzi but made with corn instead of rice

reeni: its coming back finally...

teresa: thanks teresa

sophie: I forgot to photograph the good one...I was mad at banana for coming home late

pooja: tamales are so good - you can make sweet ones, vegetarian ones, cheese ones - its wide open

Seafood tamales! You've got to tell us more about that.

By the way, get more active on Twitter, Rocket Man! You're missing out on the fun there. I was thinking of your blog today when I saw all the tweets about Tyler Florence's restaurant and the missing fork. They're looking all over the place for that stolen fork which looks a lot like the one in your header. Be prepared to explain that the fork has been here for a long time, if anyone calls. :)
