Weekend Food Choices Week 104: There’s a Catch
A new restaurant in our weekly dwelling place… how exciting I thought.
What used to be an asian bistro that served pretty good crab was transformed into a trendy cafe.
The menu had a gamut of interesting dishes that gave me a hard time deciding which i wanted to try for the evening.
I thought that this creamy bowl of Manila clams, potatoes leeks, and bleu cheese was really delicious!
Served with sides of herby focaccia, dinner was definitely off to a good start.
Hubby was delighted to find out that the fried chicken in this salad was not made of white meat.
The tender fried chicken atop crisp slaw made of roamaine, iceberg, red cabbage and crispy wonton with mandarin oranges, toasted almonds and their pink panda house dressing made an interestingly good plate of greens!
If you’re eating alone, you could opt to get half portions of any salad and soup of the day (P295)
The restaurant’s name hatched from the term coined in Joseph Heller’s novel Catch 22, describing a situation where you’re damned if you do damned if you don’t.
soon our mains were served
The fries were blah…for some reason it seemed like old fries that had been re-fried.
But the generous slices of homemade corned beef brisket in between dark rye bread was a good choice.
With red sauerkraut, swiss cheese, black pepper aioli, whole grain mustard, and dill pickles, the symphony of flavors made each bite an interesting mouthful.
I knew hubby was pleased with his choice.
The slices of curly smoked bacon that topped the burger drizzled with Tillamook cheddar was great in between the soft brioche bun.
Hubby loves cinnamon so i was not surprised that he got this from the bakery shelves that lined a wall of this cafe.
This sweet soft pastry got a thumbs up from us.
We were actually enjoying every dish until my dessert came…
First of all, it would be an understatement to say that the hot chocolate was watered down, then paired with lemony filled churros…what were they thinking?!
Fortunately, their pot of tea was very good and saved the day.
Aptly named, i realized there was a catch in giving this new cafe a try after all…
