Then came our appetizers. Albert got a divers scallop with bacon powder and melon seed milk...
and I got Manhattan style chowder with crispy bacon and parsley crunch. The clam was much larger than Campbell's usually has and very tender. Usually I find clam to be rubbery, but this was quite soft.
They accidentally brought out the wrong dish for me so they gave us another appetizer while we waited an extra 10 minutes. This ying and yang dish is the painted gazpacho (cold soup) the orange half being vine ripe tomato and the greenish side being curry eggplant.
By this time I was getting kinda full since I already ate and it was late so I wasn't feeling all that great.
Here's my pan roasted chicken bread with curry banana crust and quinoa salad. I really liked the curry banana crust. It added a really nice flavor.
I only ate a little bit when we decided to get dessert to go. We got the coconut panna cotta that we ate the next day for lunch...it was really good. Everyone was really nice and the food was great.
