Dueling Dishes: Green Beans. Capital Seafood vs. Jamillah Garden
Edwin Goei

At Jamillah Garden in Tustin, order the beans as take-out ($10.82) like I did, and a container of rice is included at no extra cost. But because they're overcooked, the texture -- its crunch and snap -- disappeared long ago. What's left was flaccid, droopy, and soggy. The flavor, however, made up the difference. Its sauce -- tangy, acidic and vinegary -- served its true purpose dribbled over the rice.

So the winner this week? Capital Seafood.

Check back next week for another episode of Dueling Dishes!
