There's a Sarasota restaurant called J. Ryan's that specializes in mixing flavors. The special today was coconut shrimp with key lime sauce. My mom had garlic-chicken-tomato pizza. I chose the veal meatloaf with mushrooms and mozzarella cheese mixed in. Unfortunately, there was very little cheese and mushrooms, so what I was served was a big plate of beef. Normally meatloaf is flavored kind of sweetly in a way that makes it halfway palatable, but this had no flavoring, so it just tasted like finely ground beef in loaf shape. The flavor of plain beef is disgusting. I'm allergic to coconut, so maybe I should have had some of that chicken pizza.
