Brittany tries takeout
Hey, Y’all fancy switching out your standard takeaway for something finger-lickin’ good? Then look no further, Tide Seafood Kitchen at Lost in the Laines is whipping up some devilishly delicious Southern American food right here in the heart of Brighton.
I grew up in Mississippi, so any time anyone mentions the words Cajun or Southern Fried, my mouth starts watering. So when I was asked if I fancied trying Tide’s menu I jumped at the chance. The menu is selective, but not simple. Each dish has its own complex flavour profile, the mix of Cajun & Asian accompaniments are inspired. These two cuisines may seem like worlds away, but in fact understanding deep-fried heat and the need for relief is something definitely shared across cultures.
When ordering on Uber Eats you can choose between Set Meals or making your own feast. Tide offers a la carte Fish and Seafood dishes, as well as Fried Fish and Oyster Mushroom Burgers. You can also add various fusion sides such as Asian style Cucumber & Black Sesame Salad, Southern-Fried King Oyster Mushrooms, and Artichoke & Samphire Salad. We couldn’t make up our minds since it all sounded so good, so went with Set #4 which includes a little bit of everything.
Set #4 is intended for 2 people, but is so generous it could feed 3 or 4. The portions sizes are excellent, and the food travelled exceptionally well. Getting fried food delivered is a bit of a gamble, but I was blown away! They have absolutely mastered their take away technique and every single bite of batter was as crunchy as if it had just come out of the frier. The fish was moist with super crunchy batter, the squid tender, and the popcorn mussels totally more-ish. Especially when dipped in the Cajun Aioli, yum.
Next time we will have to order double of the Cajun potatoes, as they almost started a civil war; they were so good! Red cabbage, fennel, & ginger slaw was crisp and cleansing, and the miso corn on the cob was charred delicious.
Overall an authentic American experience, with a fresh Asian fusion twist, that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to change up their take-away. Thank you Tide Seafood at Lost in the Laines! Browse their delicious menu here, and order for click and collect, or delivery to your door through Uber Eats.
