We started with a cup of the Ch’ale (Portuguese chowder), ($5) described this way on the menu: “kale soup and clam chowder, both local favorites, combine for one flavorful thin broth yet creamy chowder. Chock full of clams, chourico, flavor, and thick cut vegetables.”
Odd as it sounds, the broth was flavorful and the kale leaves large and tasty. It was somewhat like a Rhode Island chowder but yellow in color and much better.
Then we ordered the sticky ribs appetizer ($9) that our friendly waitress said was very popular, and the vegetable white pizza ($12).
Both my friend and I have been craving ribs recently and Brew Fish’s ribs were just perfect — crispy and charred on the outside but cooked through with the meat coming easily off the bone. They were drenched in an Asian style sesame glaze which was slightly more sweet than I usually like, but the combination was just right and we greatly enjoyed it.
