This is a fast food restaurant review themed Quick Hits so it gets both the “Quick Hits” and “Restaurant Review” categories. Here we go!

Arby’s is a solid fast food restaurant and it’s the only one I know of that features Roast Beef, and a plethora of other kinds of sandwiches you normally don’t see in fast food restaurants, such as Turkey & Cheese and Italian Combos. Also, they serve seasoned curly fries in their combo meals, a huge plus. Salads and pastries are also offered.

Wendy’s, as always, is a solid choice for fast food. I recently saw, for the first time, a Wendy’s with breakfast selections. Options include their Signature Frescuit (combining a biscuit with the fact that it’s freshly baked?), Steak & Egg Sandwich, and the Big Breakfast Sandwich which has egg, cheese, bacon AND sausage; a meat lover’s delight. The latter sandwich was pretty good. Of course there’s the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger and the Spicy Chicken Sandwich for other meals, the fries are good, and a chocolate Frosty to top it off.

– Can’t go wrong with the $2.15 (in NY) meal of a McChicken and a Sweet Tea from McDonalds. In Delaware, it would be an even two dollars! Gotta love the home of tax-free shopping. Fries aren’t bad either. The Southern Style Chicken Sandwich, in my opinion, is overrated. The McChicken is much better… and cheaper.

– Finally, Burger King. I don’t know what it is with Burger King, but I’m not a big fan. The Cheesy Bacon Tendercrisp wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. They’re also heavily promoting a burger right now that has mashed potatoes on it. Even for me, that sounds kind of disgusting. Their fries also have a unique taste, and I can’t explain why, but I’m just not a fan of them.

I’ve gone to City Island thrice in my life, as far as I can remember; twice in the past two weeks. From what I’ve noticed, City Island has two primary types of restaurants. The first type of restaurant that’s there is an elegant restaurant that is pricey for an unemployed college student such as myself, but knowing that it’s the last meal I’m going to have with a great group of people for an extended period of time, it’s absolutely worth going to, and The Black Whale certainly fits that extended bill.

Tonight’s restaurant review is for Goldfish, a seafood restaurant located in Ossining, New York.

For a mere $15, restaurant goers on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, can be treated to an excellent three course price-fixed meal. The first course features a choice of appetizers and salads including a delicious New England clam chowder, shrimp tempura, mussels, and an arugula salad. The selection of main courses that one could choose from includes many seafood items, such as shrimp parmigiana, seared sea scallops, linguine and clams, and other fishes including salmon and cod; all of which accompanying a starch and vegetable. Five desserts are available for selection as the final course; New York style cheesecake, biscoti, a chocolate pyramid, ricotta fritters, and a butterscotch pudding.

All in all, the food was excellent and the three course price-fixed meals on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays are a fantastic deal! Highly recommended.
