Bumble Bee Sardines in Hot Sauce. Well, Leave it to me to bring things down a notch, keep it old school. It's up to me to bring things back to the hobo camp and leave all the artsy-shartsy behind....for now.
These sardines are totally run of the mill, purchased from my local discount food mart. They're cheap and for a good reason. They were firm, but kind of dry even though smothered in hot sauce. I'm not sure I would have called it "HOT" sauce, really. Even with the sauce they lacked flavor and were very uninspiring. Also, they seemed more "gutsy" than most. There were innards floating everywhere. A little gross.
But they look OK, right? While not total wash, I think there are better fish out there at the same price point. It's time to hit the Italian market downtown. Ciao!
