The Price: $9.95
The Skinny: Think coconut shrimp, and think rich and over-battered.
But come to Lantana Jack’s and think again.
This starter could be an entrée for someone with a small appetite.
It consists of eight medium shrimp lightly coated in coconut then quick-fried until tender.
That coconut was flaky and light, and the spicy orange marmalade served on the side offered a delightful counterpoint to the shrimp and the coconut.
Also worth checking: any of the burgers on the menu.
