Fast Food - Weird Fish


So my dear old friend Mookie B was in town last weekend, and what did we do? EAT!

Most of the places we hit up were old (well newish-old) friends like La Taqueria and Eji and Burma Superstar. But Saturday night we did try out Weird Fish in the Mission. We had anticipated a long wait, but because we were willing to sit at the weird counter at the back of the restaurant, we were seated very quickly, and it afforded us a view of all of the weird people who came in. Okay really only one table full of weird people, but they were really, very weird (top hat, long dreds, etc).

The food was delicious. From Daniel's little b. stack appetizer (roasted yams, spinach, goat cheese and marinated tofu), to Megan's side of sauteed spinach with raisins (so lightly cooked as to maintain their shape and crunch), to my grilled jamaican-style catfish in a spicy-citrus sauce, to Daniel's side of heavenly mashed yams with coconut milk (is it weird to have two dishes for dinner that include yams?) Their fish dishes were good too, although I liked mine best...

All in all a good night, and not too weird, if you don't count the waiters, one of whom didn't know how any of the fishes were cooked and the other of whom kept smelling wine glasses to guess what was in them...
