Not what you would expect from a place with animal heads all over…

Kodiak Jack’s Steak and Seafood in Oshkosh, Wisconsin is pretty much what you might expect when you walk into a restaurant in Oshkosh. The restaurant itself is a mix between a taxidermy shop, your local bar, and an awesome salad bar. This is place is a real wisconsin establishment, and not somewhere normal people would take a vegan or a lactard…

But we did.
And it actually turned out to be a pretty good place. They were very accommodating to all of our needs. They had burgers, wraps, salads, and sandwiches. Their Lunch Menu was pretty extensive. I ordered a Vegetarian Delight. Why? I have no idea. I don’t know what I was thinking. My brother on the other hand, ordered something a lot more appropriate. He got a fish sandwich…. that is always a good idea in Oshkosh. It was probably caught right down the street in the lake….

Well, our food came out and this is what I got?

I mean really? This thing looks fantastic! The veggies were grilled to perfection, and the cheese was nicely melted but still was a little solid. It wasn’t runny, and the onions and garlic added a lot of flavor to the marble rye. I added a couple of fries in there to see what would happen, and it didn’t really change anything. In fact, I liked it better without the fry in there. It could have used a little bit of fresh basil or maybe even some crushed red pepper or something to give it a little bit more pizazz…. A little bit of balsamic might have helped bring out the flavors of the portabella, but overall it was pretty good. It was a little bit on the greasy side, but I guess that was to be expected being in a place that uses butter as a way to support the local farming economy. Being in Wisconsin also means really good cheeses… which also means a lot of cheese, on everything. It was actually a great sandwich to order… I was pleasantly surprised.

Overall Sandwich Rating: A
Presentation: A
Structure: A- (it could have been on slightly thicker bread, but good overall)
Flavors: A-

My brother’s sandwich was pretty much the opposite of mine. He likes to eat sandwiches…. even if they are bigger than his head….

It must have been pretty good, because he ate the entire thing… I would ask him to guest blog about it… but he was the same guy who left an untoasted PB&J in a plastic bag in the fridge. If he wants to guest blog, maybe I will let him anyway. It could be interesting.
