Sunday nights seem to be food posts for me. I guess I am a little too hungry around this time
Anyhow saw this place on groupon and was a little intrigued. I am not big on seafood but the moment I saw the pictures of all the wood grilled fish online I knew I had to go! And from what I noticed they are on groupon quite often so definitely look out for them !
Tackle Box has a tiny hut by the beach type feel to it. They are located in Georgetown, D.C. (A block from Georgetown cupcakes..mmm).Their menu boasts of at least 6 different types of wood grilled fish such as Tilapia, Haddock, Trout and Catfish to name a few. You can get get a Maine meal for only 13.50 which includes one fish with two sides and a sauce. I mean who wouldn’t get two sides when the menu includes items such as fried green tomatoes, sweet potato fries apart from regular fries, corn bread, mac& cheese and God knows what else! It was just sooo much to take in!
After looking over the menu several times we decided to order fish tacos something the Tackle Box is really famous for. We also ordered a side of french fries and fried green tomatoes. I have never had fried green tomatoes so I was extremely excited to try them.
Ah…the Tilapia was wood grilled to perfection with just the right amount of seasoning! The cheese, salsa and sour cream was added to the exact quantity that I would like on my tacos! The fries are just any plane jane fries! They had some sort of scrumptious seasoning on them and were devoured by us immediately. The fried green tomatoes initially seemed like an acquired taste to me but the more I ate them I more I grew in love with them.
I am looking forward to going back to Tackle box and trying out there Lobster Pot which consists off :Maine lobster (1 1/4 lb each), grilled red onions, quahog clams, white water mussels, chorizo sausage, potatoes, corn on the cob, lemon, rockweed, drawn butter & Tackle Box spice. Sounds yummy!
Here is a picture of the Lobster Pot snagged from the Company’s website. Yummmy!
