Mom opted for a Bacon and Blue Cheese Salad (a staple for her), and while she complained that there was a lot of lettuce, there was also so much blue cheese that it made the lettuce ‘bearable’ for her – usually she’ll leave most of the lettuce, but this time the bowl was clean when she was done! Very generous helping of the toppings.
My sister went for the Smoked Salmon and Chives Salad, as she’d been having a major salmon-craving. The bowl arrived so beautifully, with the salmon twisted up into a rose on top. While it was tasty, she did also complain that there was a lot of lettuce, so while there were also a good amount of toppings, the portion looked much larger due to the lettuce.
Me – I decided that one of us had to eat something OTHER than a damned salad. While I wanted to try something delicious, I also didn’t really want to be throwing back the carbs, so I opted for the Buffalo Wings and asked for no chips on the side. It still came with a choice of dip, so I chose the Aged Cheddar Cheese dipping sauce over the Roquefort one. The wings come in 12’s, in a choice of 5 marinades. I went with the SX3 (Sweet, Sassy, Sticky), and it was absolutely delicious. The wings are nice and big, they aren’t shy with the marinade, and they’re super tender and juicy. The cheddar cheese sauce was one of the best I’ve had anywhere, and trust me, I try cheese sauce everywhere I go. Definitely a meal I’d order again.
While we didn’t opt to have a dessert, my sister took home a piece of Apple pie, which she said looked unfortunately a lot more impressive than it tasted. I took home the fiance a slice of the Lemon Meringue Pie, which he adored – it was super lemon-y and creamy, and the topping was crispy and soft.
I do wish I’d been brave enough to try the multi-coloured layer cake though. But considering that we were coming back from a wedding dress fitting, this was not going to happen. Take a look at how gorgeous it looked though!
