Product Review: Fishless Filet
The Republic of V is a vegan store on University Ave, Berkeley. The have all kinds of tasty things I haven't tried before, including this new product by Gardein. I was raised on fish sticks because my Dad worked in a fish stick factory when I was growing up. Consequently, I was overcome with a wave of nostalgia when I saw these.
Sadly, they are not that great. It's not that they're bad, it's just that they're not that good either. The texture is more tofu-y than anything else, and the flavor was totally bland and nondescript. I found that they're mostly good as a substrate for ketchup or BBQ sauce, tartare would work well too. 4/10
