Datz Delicatessen – Tampa, FL

I had dinner a few nights ago at Datz with my friend Maddie (who just got engaged!) I’ve done a few posts on Datz, but unfortunately my photos never do it justice (the dim mood-lighting doesn’t really make for appetizing food photos…) But the food was just as spectacular as ever! 
We started off with drinks – Maddie had the El Diablo with tequila, crème de cassis, lime juice, and ginger beer.  I had the Dogfish Head Sah Tea – I’ve actually had this beer at Datz before.  The wort (liquid extracting from mashing process during the brewing of the beer) is caramelized over river rocks, then the beer is fermented with German weizen yeast.  Then it is flavored with Finnish juniper berries and black tea.  It is 9% alcohol, so stronger than what I normally drink.  To me I tastes like a mix of beer and chai tea. 
For dinner, we started with the black truffle fries, which were served with san Joaquin cheddar, sea salt, and herb aioli (I would order them again for sure).  We then split the uptown BLT – southern style fried green tomatoes topped with homemade pimento spread, crispy pork belly bacon, shredded lettuce, and sweet-spicy tomato bacon jam. 
We finished with the fish tacos – 3 blackened mahi-mahi soft tacos served with cilantro lime rice and Mexican street corn.  The tacos and corn were great – the rice didn’t seem like anything too special to me though. 
You really can’t go wrong with Datz – I’m sure I’ll be back again soon!
