Ambassador Dining Room on The Food Network tonight

Goa FishA fish dish at the Ambassador Dining Room gets its 15 minutes of fame on The Food Network tonight.

The program "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" went to The Ambassador back in April to film celebrity baker Duff Goldman eating Goa Fish.

The resulting episode, titled "Sauced," airs at 9 p.m.


Named for the Goa region of India, the dish features a pan-fried fish in a tamarind reduction with garlic, ginger, turmeric and cumin. In India, it is made with a type of white fish not commonly found here. At The Ambassador, they use Rockfish.

*Correction it's at 9 p.m

Whoops! Fixed it. Thanks for pointing that out. LV

Heard they also went to a local Pikesville deli for the brisket.
