Benny’s Seafood Restaurant

July 14, 2010

We are going on quite the tour of “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” locations in the major US cities!!  It just happens that we have plans to visit LA, NY, Miami, etc. and we go to the places that caught our attention on the show.

Guy Fieri visited Benny’s Seafood on his show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” and also mentioned the below dish on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” as the best fried food. 

We went for lunch and grabbed a couple appetizers.  We went for a pizza empanadas and corn sticks.  What are corn sticks, you ask?  They tasted just like the “corn” in corn dog and had a ketchup-y, garlicky dipping sauce.  It was pretty yum but probably no nutritional value whatsoever.

Ever since Boyfriend heard Guy describe mofongo, he was dying to go.  It’s a plantain based dish that’s usually mashed together with garlic, broth and pork rinds.  We got ours with chicken on top.  I’m actually not a fan of plantains and was not excited about this stop at all.  It worked out in my favor though, because the restaurants after this one only got better and better! ; )

The mofongo was pretty dry so we had to mix the broth in to help wash it down.  I was definitely ready for the next meal when we were through with this place…
