So those of you who have been reading my blog for a little while know that I'm a foodie. Somehow, this blog has been more food as of late rather than makeup. WHOOPS! I have a list of entries I told myself i'd do (beauty related). It's all written down on my to-do list.
Okaaaay no more delaying. I dined at Pesce with 2 friends (waddaaaaaap Shy Ronnie! GINTHER BEAR) after work one friday.
had a drink while waiting for Ronnie to get off work..
my bellini (pretty good and gave me a slight buzz)
Ginther's drink. Harry's Punch
started off with a round of oyster shooters. they make them really well here. you can have them virgin but if you want booze, they used a chipotle infused vodka. their menu online says you can do wasabi vodka? must be new. the crunchy bits of cucumber on the bottom give it a beautiful texture at the end of your shot.
1/2 a dozen of Hammerslay oysters from Oregon. Kumamotos are actually my fave, but they didn't have any so I had to make do with these. They weren't bad, just not sweet enough for my liking.
Pan seared scallops with chanterelles, green onions,
cream and truffle essence
So gooooood. I used all the bread they kept giving us to sop up that cream & truffle essence.
Um..there WAS 3 of these, but my friend Greg freaking ate one before I snapped a shot
House smoked salmon bruschetta with capers,
red onion and horseradish cream
Milk braised pork, gnocchi, pancetta and sage
This is Greg's favorite dish. The gnocchi is good, but I didn't think much of this dish and gave my portion to him.
Crab Tower: Dungeness crab meat with avocado, cucumber,
tomato, basil and red wine vinaigrette
I can't believe that thing was fucking $16. It is SOO BLAND. Definitely was not happy with this thing.
Now the winners (my absolute favorites) of the night:
This was one of the specials that night. If you're there and they're offering it, DEFINITELY GET IT.
The sauce is a perfect balance heartiness, robustness, and not too acidic on the tomato end. Impressed me because I prefer cream or wine sauces over marinara/red.
My other favorite of the night is the squid ink risotto. So it was a little undercooked the night I dined there (crunchy risotto is a no no people) but I still ate it anyway because the flavor was a party in my mouth. If you've never had squid ink, it gives off this semi earthy nutty taste. I enjoy it very much so.
Squid ink risotto with calamari
tiramisu i devoured
Ronnie's bread pudding.
I don't eat like this on a regular basis. I just enjoy good food and great company.
I'm in Los Angeles right now killing some time..expect a post & pix on my eats from this weekend as well.
I just also wanted to say that i've reached 50 subbies. Thank you all for reading this lil ole blog of mine. I am so grateful that people out here are reading my thoughts and reviews. I've also made some new friends via my blog! You gals are amazing ladies and total sweethearts (you know who you are! the ones who regularly comment!) For those of you I don't know, what are you waiting for!??! LEAVE ME A COMMENT! Ask me a question? I write back ^_^ No really I do!
Mr. Susyness always said I should celebrate when I hit 50. I don't know what kind of celebrating he's talking about or how I would celebrate such a thing?? Maybe i'll do a giveaway contest? What do you guys think?
