When you think of deep-fried food, your thoughts probably go to fried pickles, tomatoes, okra, hush puppies ... What about fried olives? I didn’t think so.

Strano! Sicilian Kitchen & Bar's fried house-brined olives are stuffed with garlic Italian cheese and are served with mushrooms ($8). The plate is small, you get about six fried olives. They’re crunchy green olives, which made the taste salty and slightly bitter. The cheese was nice and gooey but the olives overpowered its flavor. The mushrooms were cooked just right and had an earthy taste.

This dish would be top-notch if there was a mix of black and green olives and more than one kind of cheese.
