Weekend Food Choices Week 74: Sinful Celebration
To celebrate another year of blessings, we decided to have a good dinner at Mamou Too
Mamou is a home kitchen that prides itself on good steak
On our table:
Soft Shell Crab Salad
beer battered soft shell crab, arugula, Lola rosa, tomatoes, anchovy vinaigrette
I was actually wondering what Lola Rosa was and learned that it’s a type of lettuce with a green interior and red ruffled leaves. Like i always say, you learn something new everyday…
im a fan of soft shell crabs and this dish definitely does not disappoint!
slow roasted prime rib served with Yorkshire pudding
we didn’t realize that this dish was served with gravy because had we known, we would have had the sauce served on the side. I now know that when a dish is served with yorkshire pudding it probably is going to be served with gravy.
Yorkshire pudding is an English dish usually partnered with roast meat and gravy. This is made of batter cooked in an oiled pan. History tells us that this pudding came about because they wanted to make use of the fat in the dripping pan as the meat roasted. Unfortunately our yorkshire pudding was frozen hard but fortunately the server or chef noticed this before we dug in and offered to replace it with another side dish. The restaurant manager even came over to apologize for the incident. We were treated very well, thank you!
The prime rib was cooked just the way hubby liked it, a little pink in the center.
Salmon Steak on Warm Couscous Salad
For a carnivore like me this dish is a favorite!
i just love how all the natural oil is drained by the tipped plate -reminder to self: must stop indulging in fatty dishes…someday….
i chose the spinach and corn, both of which are pretty good. hubby got himself 2 orders of his favorite baked mashed potatoes which is the silkiest mashed potato i’ve ever tasted -yum!
now back to my favorite dish…perfectly medium rare, delicious with sea salt
…and layers of drool worthy fat! Definitely steak love!
Dessert could not be skipped so i ordered a bowl of frozen hot chocolate
it was decent but i can’t wait until hubby’s promised trip to the upper east side in a couple of years so i can treat my taste buds to an order of Serendipity 3′s version of this famed dessert…arrrgghhh i can’t stand it! but it’ll be worth the wait…
a sweet ending to a delicious dinner!
