I don’t know what is so crazy about a cucumber but I do know that The Crazy Cucumber is a really fun place for lunch or dinner in Ocala, FL. There’s a lot of fun food on the menu, from the Tuna Tower appetizer to the blackened redfish, the menu is as eclectic as the next.
Mr. Beet and I went there for a late night bite on a Saturday night. We weren’t as hungry as we would normally be so we ate little bites. We kept it simple. I ordered a Caesar salad. I liked it though it was fairly generic.
However, Mr. Beet tried the crispy salmon salad and he really loved it. Baked salmon, chopped romaine, apple slices, walnuts, dried cranberries with a light lemon vinaigrette.
We also ordered the Brussels sprouts. We were told they were sautéed, but I think they were actually boiled. If they were indeed sautéed, they were pretty mushy. However, I am a fan of Brussels sprouts and these were pretty good.
My favorite item we ordered was the chive mashed potatoes. They were so creamy and dreamy…the perfect mashed potatoes. Loved the chives as an added touch.
After talking to a few people sitting nearby, we learned that the veggie burger is not only homemade, it is one of the most loved veggie burgers in the area. That means we have to go back now. 4 sprouts out of 5.
