What can I say, my taste buds actually hit a climax when I ate this dish. I ordered the saumen almondine which  was salmon, organic salad that was sided with bread. Sounds simple? Yes it was, but the taste of the salmon beats any restaurant salmon that I’ve ever tried. What made this dish so amazing was that the salmon was topped with almonds and had this type of glaze on top. I would never have imagined  eating salmon and almond on the same fork, but it was defiantly one of the best dishes I’ve ever ordered. It was so rich and filling that Read the rest of this entry

Meal Made For A King

This dish may not look all that but  it was actually pretty good for a simple looking dish.  This dish was the onglet aux echalotes, a pepper crusted steak served with cognac sauce and mashed potatoes. The steak was extremely tender, so much so that you can use a fork  to cut through it. The sauce that was glazed over the steak was  delicious which I can’t really describe it. The mashed potatoes was also a surprising experience, as it was very fluffy, no clumps, and tasted like it was home-made. Though the portion size was average, it was defiantly a meal for a king, or queen!  I must mention  that the outside and location of this fine restaurant  should have been in a  fancier area like Santana Row. Even the inside was a bit plain for their high quality food. It would be like eating  high-class food at Macdonald’s  ( bit exaggeration but you know what I mean). All in all,   this dish was excellent. YUMM!
