After eating theme park food and food from chains like Panda Express days on end (gotta give props to Sushiology though which has good cheap sushi), my friends and I decided to spoil ourselves on final night in Orlando and went to Bonefish Grill. Since this grillhouse is non-existent in California and we had never heard of it before, we did not have much of an inkling on what to expect. I was impressed by the decor and the ambience in the restaurant — it was definitely a place suitable for dates or a nice night out with your friends or family. The service was also excellent. Needless to say, this establishment has left an indelible mark on us.
Bang Bang Shrimp @ Bonefish Grill, Orlando
The Bang Bang Shrimp totally rocked my socks off and is a must-have. The shrimps were so crispy and the spicy sauce gave them an extra oomph!
I opted for a dinner special that came with a choice of either soup or salad, and an entree. Going for the crab chowder was a no-brainer for me and was definitely the right choice — my friends could not stop dipping their bread into my chowder because it was so good!
For the entree, I had a dish with an assortment (well, four kinds) of seafood — Ahi tuna, tilapia, Norwegian salmon, and scallops and shrimps. I have yet to truly appreciate Ahi tuna but everything else was awesome. The fish had the good texture and flakiness, and the seasoning and sauces made them even more delicious.
My friends and I would have made our meals complete with desserts and I had my eye on the Jamaican coconut pie with rum sauce…but we had to return our car to the rental company. Was this meal worth the splurge? Hell yeah. One of the best meals — if not the best — I have had the past year.
