The Lenten Special

 

If you want to eat fish on Friday, but weren’t persuaded by my review of the Cod Reuben, never fear: the cod sandwich is available every day during Lent for just $6.99.  In my opinion, it does not compare to the Cod Reuben, but the quality of the generous portion of the crispy, succulent cod has not changed. The cod sandwich keeps it simple, adding just lettuce and tartar sauce to a Kaiser roll. I recommend a side of Izzy’s coleslaw on the side and a Dr. Brown’s root beer to wash it down.

Apps and Beer

The best thing about Izzy’s craft beer dinners might not be the beer. In my humble opinion, the appetizers specially prepared for these events rival the beers with which they are paired. The first dinner featured everyone’s favorite pickles, deep fried with a special dipping sauce. The second dinner introduced me to fried sauerkraut balls and a horseradish-based dipping sauce, which far exceeded my expectations. I cannot wait to see what Izzy’s comes up with for the third craft beer dinner, on Tuesday, March 20 at the Anderson location. Until these apps are added to the menu, the only place to try them is at the craft beer dinners. So come out to Anderson tomorrow night to enjoy some special food paired with quality craft beers.

Oh. My. Goetta!

Oh. My. Goetta. I tried the Goetta Reuben once a long time ago and was underwhelmed. Either Izzy’s has greatly improved this menu item, or my first experience was an aberration. When I tried the Reuben with Cincinnati’s favorite sausage this time around, it was tremendous. Two perfectly cooked slices of Glier’s goetta are topped with all the classic reuben fixings and served on toasted rye. Now I know why this sandwich is the favorite Izzy’s choice of so many of my friends. I’ll definitely be back soon for another go-round with Goetta.
