I’ve now visited the newest restaurant at 16 E. Patrick Street twice since it’s opening in August. So far it’s tasted pretty good!
From the appetizing list of starters …
Some grilled zucchini stuffed with goat cheese and topped with crispy Parmesan. The goat cheese in these was pretty ooey-gooey. I love goat cheese, but I still found myself wishing for a bit more texture. Maybe a few more grill marks or a lot more of those awesome Parmesan cheese crispies.
There was no way a group of food bloggers would be able to resist these. Come on, there called pork belly tacos. We were pleasantly surprised by how taco-like these really were complete with guacamole. These were quite large for an appetizer (not that, that is a bad thing) and would really make an excellent entree on their own.
The Mushroom and Asparagus Spring Rolls also filled with spinach, Vidalia onions, napa cabbage and teriyaki wasabi. These will not disappoint.
And onto the heavier fare …
Saffron Cream of Crab soup … need I say more.
This was a very good burger, albeit not as spicy as I was hoping. This was the Green Chili Burger. I was in it for the hatch green chili peppers, but I’m not sure they actually made it onto my burger. There wasn’t a whole lot of spice. There was still a great deal of flavor though from the pickled red onions, provolone and cumin mayo.
This sandwich was a crowd-pleaser, hand-cut rib eye on toasted garlic bread with caramelized onion and provolone, yum! It was almost like there was an au jus coating the rib eye. It had a fantastic amount of flavor.
I’m certainly pleased to say the food at JoJo’s is good. It’s certainly pub fare, but I wouldn’t want anything else from a tap house. It’s definitely worth becoming a regular stop for a pint and a bite.
