Has everyone been to Ltauha yet? Good. We got busy and unfortunately Ridgefood Ltauha Week™ was cut short, though we did pop in for a quick lunch the other day. SKATE SANDWICH: Discuss.
I’ve seen skate on menus a lot at various restaurants over the years, but I’ve never actually eaten it. What is skate, anyway? It’s similar to stingray: flat and thin and mild-tasting, with a dense, meaty, crab-like texture. At Ltauha, the skate wings are fried in a light beer-batter-esque coating, topped with lettuce, tomato, and tartar sauce, and snuggled between a lovely brioche bun. I’m more of a flaky-fish type of person (think fish and chips or catfish), so I’m not sure that the skate sandwich will be part of my regular Ltauha repertoire, but it’s an elegant and attractive sandwich for sure.
