Score: 6.5/10

McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish is the kind of thing you’d expect to see served at an inner city public high school. It’s plain, frozen and fried. It’s a little depressing to look at because it’s just fish with cheese on bread. And yet I often order this… mostly because there are not any other cheap, non-beef options on the menu. Sometimes, I want fast food and I don’t want a burger. The Filet-O-Fish is the only real option on the menu.

Normally, this item costs over five dollars. Thankfully, recent deals have lowered the average price I pay for one of these things to about three dollars. Even then, I don’t think it’s that good. There’s nothing fresh on this thing. It’s a frozen fish patty they deep fried. I wish they’d put veggies on it, like Burger King does, but I realize a lot of customers might not like that. It’s also really small. It’s a tiny sandwich about the same size as a McDouble, except it’s fish so it’s less filling than beef… at least it feels that way.

Overall, I find this sandwich depressing. Every time I eat one of these, it’s because I’m too hungry, tired and lazy to think of something else to eat. Every time I finish eating a Filet-O-Fish, I obtain renewed determination to quit the trash that is fast food.

Like flavored cream on bubble teas, higher end hot pot, Szechuan cuisine, hand pulled noodles, etc., grilled fish has become the newest trendy thing to eat among Chinese restaurant goers, at least in New York City.

Restaurant Review: Tacombi

Details: Located at 267 Elizabeth St, New York, NY 10012. The official site is http://tacombi.com/

Tacombi is another beer and taco place near in Manhattan. Like most taco place in Manhattan, the tacos are small and unsatisfying. Most tacos are somewhere from three to ten dollars. They have all the classic taco types.

I had the carnitas (around three dollars), Baja fish tacos (around six dollars), and a Horchatta (around four dollars). It was fine.

The biggest reason to come here is that the environment is comfortable and casual. Service was also really nice.

Overall, it was okay.
