Dining @ John City Diner

Last Saturday Dave and I went out on a date and dined at John City Diner in Trussville, Alabama. That was the first time that we went and dined in that place although we have seen it so many times.

There were less people when we entered the restaurant and the waiter put us at the booth. The place is very remarkable... the way they design their booths is very nice.

For our appetizer Dave ordered Fried Oyster and I ordered a cup of Gumbo. Usually, for appetizers we always order calamaris but they don't have it. As usual we both order tea for our drinks.

Fried Oysters (The dipping sauce is really yummy)

The appetizer was really good. That was the first time that I had Gumbo and I like the spices in it. It is a little spicy. The fried oyster is also good and its dipping sauce is just wonderful.

For our main course, Dave ordered Pan Seared trout with french fries and sauteed corn on the side while I ordered Red Snapper with pineapple relish and mango butter sauce with french fries and buttered sweet potato for the side.

Pan Seared Trout

The trout was good but the sauteed corn is awful. Dave and I both like the crispiness of the trout's skin. The red snapper was just okay and I think I can cook better with it though. The pineapple relish and mango butter sauce was really good, and I might try making it in the future.

Considering the price that we paid for our dinner, It is not worth it. I am not coming back to dine in there.
