Every year, restaurants try to capitalize during Lent by coming up with a fish special for us that don’t eat meat on Lenten Fridays. The fast-food chains are no exception. So on this Friday, my girlfriend treated me by dropping off lunch between meetings. She chose to drive through Burger King and pick up the Big Fish and Spicy Big Fish:
The Big Fish is 100% White Alaskan Pollock, breaded with crispy panko breading and topped with sweet tartar sauce, tangy pickles, all on top of a toasted brioche-style bun. The Spicy Big Fish replaces the sweet tartar sauce with a creamy spicy sauce. In my opinion, the Spicy Big Fish wasn’t that spicy – simply a bit spicier than the standard Big Fish. I actually missed the taste of the tartar sauce – I guess I’m just used to it on these kind of sandwiches.
All-in-all, it was a good lunch – as good as it could be without meat. And get this – the current Burger King promotion is “2 specialty sandwiches for $5″… can’t beat that!
