This post isn’t in chronological order since the dining experience occurred before the previous post…sorry 🙂
My mom had the Horseradish Encrusted Salmon. She let me try a bite (obviously!) and it was delicious! I’m not a fan of horseradish, but by baking it, the tartness of horseradish disappeared and made for a fancy addition to the salmon.
I chose the Porkloin with truffle whipped sweet potatoes, asparagus, and bacon w/stone ground mustard veloutte sauce. I think the truffle whipped sweet potatoes sold me when I read the menu, and they certainly stood up to their reputation. YUM-O! It was a perfect entree, not too heavy, and plenty of leftovers!
My sweetie had the Black Bean Cakes…they were very tasty and had the perfect amount of spice! I plan to attempt a recreation!
Dessert was a no-brainer. My mom had the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee and I had the Raspberry Sorbet (their only dairy-free option). Naturally I sampled the creme brulee and it was amazing. It’s so decadent and I love the crunchy, sugary topping. The sorbet reminded me of my childhood. My mom bought raspberry sorbet every once in a while from the grocery store…it’s not something I had a lot of, but just one of those things that sticks with ya!
I was more than full after this birthday dinner. Good thing I’ve been workin’ my butt off at the gym. As much as I love trying new restaurants and splurging on yummy food, I’ll be glad to get back into my diet & routine!
