Some of my coworkers and I were in Manhattan, Kansas for a leadership conference earlier this week. While there we had an opportunity to try a new restaurant — Wahoo Fire and Ice Grill. None of us had dined there before.
We ordered a couple of starters to share. Sally picked the Mojave Desert shrimp, which is basically just bacon-wrapped shrimp drenched in barbecue sauce, but it was yummy. You can’t really go wrong with bacon-wrapped shrimp. Actually, you can’t go wrong with bacon. Bacon makes everything better. LOL.
We also had the crab rangoon dip with a generous helping of fried wonton chips. These were delicious and filling. I seriously could have made a meal out of the appetizers.
Teresa and I both got the Wahoo stir fry. You have to order the dish that’s named after the restaurant, right? I mean, it’s got to be something special if they’re going to put their name on it. The dish was really flavorful. It probably had almost too much flavor. The rice was drenched in the teriyaki ginger peanut sauce, which is a delicious, sweet sauce with just a hint of spice to it. Again, very good but somewhat overwhelming halfway through the dish. It made me wish that I had some steamed rice to tone down some of the flavor.
Sally had the salmon BLT. I think she had the healthiest meal of the group. The picture of Gwen’s mixed grill (sirloin, fish, and chicken) didn’t come out very well so I’m not posting it. The dish looked fantastic, though. If Brian and I eat here, that’s probably one that the two of us could share.
Sunni had the Bimini Island pasta. I think we were all happy with our entree choices. Everything looked really good.
Wahoo is a restaurant that I’d love to take Brian next time we are in the area. I’m not sure what was in this space on the corner of 11th and Moro before Wahoo, but I think Wahoo fits. I’d totally bring Brian here next time we find ourselves in Aggieville. Maybe we’ll have to attend a Wildcats game or something.
