Army+Navy Burger Burrito

Army+Navy Burger Burrito is one of those places that defies description and convention. The restaurant serves “fastfood fare” but at a different level, so to speak.

Army+Navy Burger Burrito Fearless Chicken

Army+Navy Burger Burrito Fearless Chicken

Army+Navy Burger Burrito serves burgers, burritos, sandwiches, chicken, french fries, soda, iced tea and milkshakes. All within the fastfood price range. Their service is however, not quite as fast. But the wait is definitely worth it. No stale fries, no undercooked or cold chicken, and definitely no unattractive or smooshed burgers or sandwiches here. Everything is pretty, well prepared, and hot.

Thai Fish Cakes with Cilantro Brown Rice

Yup, I joined the health craze. And I’m happy that a new restaurant has opened with healthy dining in mind.

Thai Fish Cakes with Cilantro Brown Rice

I’ve been to the Sea Green Cafe and Lifestyle Shop several times and it’s currently one of my favorite restaurants. My favorite is their Thai Fish Cakes with Cilantro Brown Rice.

The fish cakes are made of white marlin fillet seasoned with cilantro, chili, and other fresh herbs and spices. The fish cakes are seasoned well without the taste being too overpowering. It is coated lightly with breadcrumbs and fried perfectly with the fish fillet still moist. And it’s not too oily, either. It’s so good you won’t notice you’re eating something healthy.

The Thai Fish Cakes are served with a sweet dipping sauce which I haven’t quite figured out what it’s made of yet. While the fish cakes are great on its own, the dipping sauce add another flavor to the dish which makes it more interesting. The sauce perfectly complements the herby taste of the fish cakes.

The Thai Fish Cakes comes with a heap of Cilantro Brown Rice.

Sea Green serves its rice meals with organic brown or black rice. Brown Rice makes the Thai Fish Cakes meal more satisfying. The brown rice has a mild nutty flavor and a bit of bite which I like. The brown rice is seasoned with some cilantro which mimics the taste of the fish cakes. Cilantro has a mild taste so the cilantro in the fish cakes and the cilantro in the rice doesn’t overwhelm.

This dish is satisfying, with a great combination of flavors. The Thai Fish Cakes, the dipping sauce, and the Cilantro Brown Rice all complement each other resulting in a meal that would satisfy your appetite, your palate, and your need eat something healthy.

Thinking about this dish makes me excited to go back to Sea Grass right away.
