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


this is a delicious plate of greens. the beer battered soft shell crab was really crunch-ly good and the vinaigrette was a perfect salty sweet dressing

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!

Prime Rib
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


a very good dish for non steak fans

Angus Ribeye Prime Grade Steak

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….

this dish is served with 2 sides which you can choose from white/red steak rice, corn pudding, creamed spinach, or baked mashed potatoes

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!

  1. I can’t wait to try their steak coz we failed to order them on our last visit and sadly I didn’t like their other dishes that much. I should have gone for the steak.
