Happy Hour at PassionFish

You know you’re old when you go to a bar for the cheap food during happy hour. Since I loved the food at PassionFish I was sure the bar food would be equally good too.

The bar area was full when we arrived at 6 pm so we just stood and ate our chow.

Yes we brought a child to a bar for happy hour. And yes kids were allowed as long as they don’t order drinks. Duh.

I can just imagine in a few years Erin will be going to bars with her friends and we will ask her, “Erin can we go to the bar with you?” And with horror in her voice she replies, “No! I’m going with my friends.” “But Erin don’t you remember we brought you to happy hour before? Now it’s your turn to bring us!” bwa ha ha ha…

All the food and drinks on the happy hour menu were $5 only from 4-6 pm. It was a good thing that we could still order past 6:30 so it became our early dinner. With the amount of food we ordered it really felt like dinner.

I ordered a mojito with a piece of sugar cane in it. I’m not supposed to have alcohol but I really enjoyed my drink and it seemed bottomless because I had the bartender add soda water to my glass over and over again.

The fried clams were my least favorite because they were a bit chewy and tough.

The fried oysters were yummy eaten together with the chipotle coleslaw and New Orleans remoulade.

My favorite were the fried spring rolls filled with crabmeat and shrimp instead of the usual pork. The nuoc cham dipping sauce heightened the flavors of the spring roll.

I’ve never seen ceviche topped with popcorn before.

I tried all the sliders sans the top bread and the lobster roll was my favorite. They don’t skimp on the seafood here.

The burger needed some salt but it was Erin’s favorite.

I love happy hour. My next goal is to try Morton’s happy hour in Hong Kong where they serve eat-you-can steak sandwiches.
