Roche Bothers Seafood not up to it's usual standards

Smelly seafood anyone? We've been buying seafood at Roche Brothers for years now and it's always been fresh and good. Now, in the last month, we've had old and not fresh smelling salmon steaks which we returned and jumbo shrimp tonight which was once again not fresh. What's going on? Have we just been unlucky? Roslindale Fish Market isn't having this problem.

Mast Kalandar � Bangalore Belly

I saw this place on TV recently. I don''t think I'll ever be in Bangalore but it looked good enough to Google and I found this blog post which gives a good run down on what they offer.

LOL, I hope you do better with the menu than I did. I only recognized maybe three items.

Already two of these look good and there's still ninety I haven't seen yet.

BEET SALAD Peel beets and grate them (a food processor will keep the juice contained). Add pistachios or hazelnuts; dress with orange zest and juice, and olive oil. Add bits of goat cheese and chopped parsley.

ROAST BEEF AND BLUE Start with whole-grain rolls. Smear blue cheese on one side and prepared horseradish on the other. Add red onion and thin-sliced roast beef, pork or lamb. Pack! lettuce and tomato on the side. Potato chips are mandatory.
