While the words “chain restaurant” and “unique dish” are paired about as frequently as “Britney Spears” and “model parent,” we have to give it up to the folks at Houlihans for really cranking up the sass factor on their Ahi Tuna Salad.
While most places opt to pair the pan-seared fish with a citrus of sorts, Houlihans chose everybody’s favorite Freudian fruit, the banana, as their piece de delicious.
