CRAB CAKES OF THE GODS

Postby Broadsheet » Sun Aug 29, 2010 8:04 pm

I went to Sardine for brunch today for the first time and had one of those food shocker experiences -- could it really be this good? Should I order another setup right now? I speak of the crab, bacon and rock shrimp cakes with chipolte beurre blanc ($17).

The cakes arrived fast, hot and burger-shaped with a great panko crunch. The melted chile butter, combined with the shellfish and bacon note, give this dish incredible depth. It came with a nice salad of fresh corn, baby tomatoes, green beans and greens, and two eggs. I ordered them over easy and put them on the salad.

Any other fish cake rivals out there?

They might have liked the crab cakes but were offended by the the pork. Well, shellfish is supposedly unclean, too, in some Bronze Age traditions. Warning, warning!
