let's review: kayak kafe'

     Kayak Kafe', located at One East Broughton Street is an eclectic little place. Their mantra is fresh, local and organic food, cooked to order, keeping the flavors sharp and the colors crisp. They serve locally wild-caught Georgia shrimp.

     Their commitment to the environment even stretches to their paper products... Here's a note from their website:  We use only biodegradable TFPP food containers & compostable PLA drink cups & we recycle all glass, plastic and cardboard.
     The salads they offer are imaginative, their tacos some of the best in town. Uniquely paired ingredients lend an eclectic flair that is easy to become addicted to.
     I've visited a few times, once for a late, after-theatre dinner date with my husband and most recently, lunching with the girls. You can never go wrong ordering their famous Roasted Tilapia or Lime-Chicken tacos. 
     This past time, I decided to try something new... Southwestern Wild Shrimp tacos. Seared local shrimp in a spicy adobo with sliced avocado, cilantro cream, Latin slaw and fresh pico de gallo. I may have a new fave!
     One of my friends ordered the Tomato-basil Bisque and Shrimp Quesadillas. They were loaded with wild shrimp, black beans, sliced avocado and melted pepper-jack cheese. Oh, my!
     Our other lovely but ravenous companion ordered the Greek Chicken panini. She wolfed it down so fast, I didn't get a good shot of it for you... It is SO difficult to train your friends not to start eating until you've photographed all of the food on the table! Gee whiz...
     Judging by the clean plate, I'd say she liked it. You'll have to order it for yourself. I really don't know why I don't eat here every other day!

  1. Wow! Now this looks good and yummy! I wonder what will happen to that shrimp quesadillas if I happen to toast or bake it in an oven. Hmmmm also the idea of putting shrimp in it is just brilliant.

  2. Thanks, Therese. I think they saute the shrimp before filling the tortilla. If you're anywhere near Savannah, you should visit this place. It is always good. Very consistent. Thanks for reading :)
