The Foodies and Friend were out on a photo shoot and stopped at Cafe Habana in Malibu for lunch. We all chose the Eloté (Mexican Corn) and their Fish & Chips appetizer.
The corn, as always, was excellent, although we felt our version was somewhat better as we fully grill the corn (as opposed to boil first then a quick grill).
The mahi mahi fried fish had the lightest tempura-style batter and was probably the best fried fish we’ve had. We forgave the undercooked fries as a “bad day” in the kitchen. A great meal for $23.58 per serve.
For dinner we returned to a favorite: top sirloin with peanut sauce. Tonight Foodie Greg built a salad out of what we had in the refrigerator: bean sprouts, watercress and cucumber in a tasty dressing.
- The top sirloin was $3.52 per serve
- The peanut butter was $3.99 and we used about 1/8, or 25c a serve
- Other seasonings in the satay sauce add 35c per serve
- The Persian cucumber was $1.99 or 25c per serve
- Add 30c for watercress.
- Add 20c for dressing ingredients.
The steak (from our Keller Crafted meat delivery and therefore dry aged) was flavorsome and tender and perfectly grilled. The peanut sauce is a great spicy accompaniment which the wet salad ingredients perfectly offset. A great meal for $4.87 per serve.
